The need for scalp rejuvenation may have begun with minor hair loss in your 20s, finally reaching completion in around your mid-30s or later in some individuals.. Instead of wasting your time trying to hold on to your hair with topical hair maintenance solutions, or undergoing extensive surgery with hair transplant options, a great way to slow down hair loss and encourage hair growth may be PRP. Modern scalp rejuvenation techniques involve a process known as PRP therapy, which is natural, low-risk, and minimally-invasive.
How Can PRP Therapy Improve Your Scalp? Hormonal and aging processes affect how your scalp hold on to your hair.
The difficulty with follicles on the top of the scalp is that they are not permanent follicles like the ones on the sides and back of your head. This is why hair on top of your head will fall out while the hair on the back and sides of your head may not. As the follicles in the region of your scalp stop functioning properly, they are no longer viable for holding on to hair and for providing continuous hair growth. So, it is only natural for the hair to fall out and leave you with thinning hair and later with baldness. To slow and try to reverse this process, medical science has introduced a technique for scalp rejuvenation called PRP therapy.
Using PRP Therapy to Rejuvenate Your Scalp
The good news today in scalp rejuvenation technology is that doctors now know more about how to slow and reverse the damage causing hair loss in some people. These doctors do not have to look any further than their patient’s own blood for a viable solution. By extracting a few vials of blood, the doctor can begin to produce a preparation of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that will be injected into the patient’s scalp to go to work repairing aging follicles. In order to achieve this goal, the doctor must take the blood and spin it up in a specialized centrifuge.
This process helps to separate red blood cells and certain white blood cells from the rest. What is left behind is the highly concentrated plasma which contains the necessary blood platelets and growth factors that result in positive change in your scalp. By strategically injecting the PRP preparation into your scalp, this helps to encourage follicles to not only become functional again, but also improve your scalp’s ability of regrowing your own hair.
