Most of us lose 50 to 100 hairs each day. Though that sounds like a lot of hair, it’s actually not when you consider that the average human head holds about 100,000 hairs. When hair loss becomes a concern, it’s typically due to bald spots or when the hair line starts to thin and recede. The surprising thing about hair loss is just how common it is! It’s estimated that hair loss affects more than 50% of women. By 50 years of age, about 85% of men are balding, according to the American Hair Loss Association (AHLA).
Now, for the good news: Hair loss is a highly treatable concern. At Sikara Medspa, we proudly provide PRP hair restoration to help our clients grow thicker, fuller heads of hair naturally. Have you heard of PRP?
Here’s a primer on PRP hair restoration and how it can help you.
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma.
PRP is a concentrated portion of your very own blood, called platelet-rich plasma. Your PRP is packed with healing properties and growth factors. Golden in color, your PRP helps to revitalize your hair cells by boosting blood flow, reawakening dormant hair follicles and thickening existing hairs to reveal a fuller, thicker head of your natural hair without the use of drugs or implants.
PRP is a no-downtime treatment.
Though PRP hair restoration sounds like a complicated treatment, it’s quite simple. We’ll draw your blood in our medspa within a matter of minutes. Once we draw a small portion of your blood, we’ll spin it in a centrifuge, a special spinning machine, to isolate the PRP. This process takes only minutes while you wait comfortably. Once your PRP is ready, we will gently inject it into your scalp. You may experience some redness and swelling at the site of injection, but these side effects are temporary and can be easily covered by wearing a hat after your treatment.
PRP results are gradual, with a series of treatments.
PRP is a natural substance that works within your body to produce natural results. As with any natural body process, your results will appear gradually in the months following treatment. With PRP hair restoration, your results will appear as your dormant hair follicles reawaken and hairs become thicker. We recommend a series of treatments, spread out over the course of several months, to see your best results. We also recommend periodic maintenance treatments to maintain your benefits.
