Reverse Thinning Hair with Nonsurgical PRP Therapy

PRP makes magic for your hair.

If you’re struggling with thinning hair, you aren’t alone. About 50% of women suffer from noticeable hair loss, and 80 million Americans face thinning hair every day. At DiStefano Medical Spa, we understand the frustration and embarrassment unwanted hair loss can bring. 

 

Our compassionate care team helps patients in the Chattanooga, Tennessee area reverse thinning hair with nonsurgical platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. Treatments are customized for your individual needs, and you can rest easy knowing we use only the best materials and techniques available.

 

Read on to learn more about innovative PRP therapy and how it can help your thinning mane. 

What is PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is a nonsurgical treatment for thinning hair. This cutting-edge technology uses platelets, the cells that contain important nutrients and growth factors, from your blood to stimulate new cell growth. 

 

When you have a PRP therapy session at DiStefano Medical Spa, your provider draws a small amount of your blood, then spins it in a centrifuge. This helps separate the platelets from the rest of your blood to create the plasma.

 

The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the predetermined target areas to promote the growth of new hair. PRP therapy comes with few risks since only your own blood is used. Common side effects include mild discomfort or soreness at the injection sites. 

 

There's no downtime required, so you can be in and out in under an hour and get back to your busy day. Most patients get a monthly treatment for the first two to three months. Once new growth is established, a six-month booster is recommended for long-lasting results.

Why does PRP therapy reverse thinning hair?

Clinical research indicates that the high concentration of platelets in the PRP solution does several things to help reverse thinning hair. First, the platelets promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase in your hair cycle. 

 

Second, the growth factors in the PRP solution stimulate new hair follicles, causing new hair to grow in places that were thinning before treatment. It’s important to note, however, that although PRP therapy is quite effective at reversing thinning hair, results take time to appear. New hair grows gradually, and you can expect to see noticeable results in two to three months.

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for PRP therapy?

Almost all adults who are experiencing thinning hair are candidates for PRP therapy, and it’s considered a safe treatment for adults. Before your PRP therapy, our care team evaluates your hair loss and medical history to ensure PRP is the right treatment option for you. 

 

The treatment is not a great fit for adults with certain medical conditions, like lupus, thyroid disease, a bleeding disorder, or skin cancer, as it may not be as effective. On the other hand, PRP therapy is especially effective for patients with a strong family history of thinning hair.  

Where can I learn more about PRP therapy?

The best way to learn more about PRP therapy for thinning hair is by talking with an expert, like the team at DiStefano Medical Spa. Our practice offers multiple solutions for hair restoration, and an experienced provider can help you choose the right treatment for you.
