PRP Hair Restoration
As medical technology advances, our options for hair restoration becomes increasingly diverse with new techniques offering unparalleled levels of safety and comfort. One of the latest breakthrough treatments developed for hair loss is PRP hair restoration, which uses platelet rich plasma, a serum created from a patient’s own blood. This serum contains a concentrated amount of proteins necessary for healing and regeneration, and once it’s injected into the scalp, creates a healthy and nourished environment that’s perfect for stimulating the growth of inactive hair follicles. With PRP hair restoration, you can stop or slow down hair loss with minimal downtime and avoid a painful, painstaking surgical procedure. Moreover, unlike other surgical hair restoration procedures, this treatment can address the very root of hair loss: the hair follicles themselves. Results are all due to your body’s natural response and self-healing mechanisms, so your new hair growth will all come from you, not surgery or an artificial compound.
How PRP for Hair Works
PRP for hair loss is more than an extremely innovative procedure—it’s also one of the safest and most comfortable ways you can combat hair loss. PRP hair restoration works by injecting a serum packed with our body’s most essential healing proteins: the growth factors and cytokines from the patient’s very own blood. Treatment repairs and nourishes the scalp and the hair follicles, which then slows down hair loss and even triggers hair growth from inactivated hair follicles.
The entire cosmetic procedure is performed with unparalleled levels of safety: treatment is delivered through injection and doesn’t require a single incision or suture to be made. The serum itself is made from the patient’s own tissue, so there’s no risk of infection or an allergic reaction.T
PRP Hair Restoration Procedure
Much of the invasive techniques for hair restoration involve long, painful, and painstaking procedures that take a while to recover from. PRP for hair, however, is a simple and gentle treatment that takes less than an hour to perform. First, a small blood sample will be taken from the patient. This sample is much smaller than the amount taken for donations or tests. The sample will then be taken to a centrifuge and processed in order to separate the red and white cells from the plasma and platelets. The platelet solution will then be processed before it’s ready to be injected. The scalp will be numbed before the procedure to help the patient with any discomfort. Then the serum will be injected in critical areas using an incredibly fine needle. Most patients report feeling comfortable during the treatment, and many of them spend the duration of the procedure relaxing. The procedure should only take about 30-45 minutes to complete, and the patient will be able to go home immediately after the treatment.
Ideal Candidates for PRP Hair Restoration
Almost all men and women dealing with hair loss can undergo this simple and safe procedure. Patients with blood and platelet disorders, liver disease, hemodynamic instability, or cardiovascular instability could have a higher risk of complications with PRP restoration. All patients who are interested in the treatment will receive a medical consultation with one of the physicians at Aesthetic Art to determine their candidacy for the procedure.

An Alternative for PRP Hair Restoration
Aesthetic Art offers an alternate treatment using Mesomedica® sera for patients who want to avoid using their own blood or have a contraindication to PRP hair restoration. Instead of using the patient’s own blood, we use the powerful MesoHairGro® serum, which can nourish the scalp and strengthen the hair shafts. Containing essential vitamins like Pro-Vitamin B5, biotin, thiamine, and Vitamin B6, this cocktail specifically addresses the causes for poor hair growth and damaged hair follicles.
It’s nonsurgical and uses only the patient’s own tissue, so PRP for hair loss is incredibly safe. There’s an incredibly low to no risk of infection or an allergic reaction, and risks of other complications are also extremely low. The protocol for creating the serum is done with highest levels of safety, and your treatment will only be administered by a trained healthcare professional.
Female hair loss tends to progress differently than male hair loss, and yet there are not that many treatments tailored for this very specific condition. This procedure is an extremely effective treatment for female hair loss.
It will all depend on the area that’s being treated and the rate of hair loss. It’s recommended that most patients receive a minimum of four treatments that are performed at one month intervals. You will be able to find out more about the treatment during your consultation with Aesthetic Art, when your scalp will be carefully analyzed.
Your PRP hair loss treatment will consist of a series of treatments spread out over a few months. The number of treatments will all depend on the degree of hair loss and a number of different variables. Once the first series of treatments have been completed, follow-up treatments can be done once or twice a year. We will base your treatment regimen by regularly analyzing your Hair Mass Index, a measurement of how many hairs are in a certain area and how thick the hair follicles in them are.
The amount of time that it’ll take before patients see results will depend a number of variables: the amount of treatments, the concentration of the serum, and the degree of hair loss. Ultimately, it will all depend on the rate at which your body responds to the treatment, since PRP hair restoration results come from your body’s ability to heal itself. For most patients, it takes an average of 3-6 months to start seeing a substantial increase in hair density.
A procedure as sophisticated as PRP hair restoration should be performed by skilled medical professionals. To get the best results, contact Aesthetic Art for a consultation.
