Choosing PRP therapy for hair restoration
- Posted on: Jan 15 2020
Both men and women can experience hair thinning and loss. Sometimes it’s caused by certain medical conditions or periods of extreme stress. For others, it may be genetics. Dr. Anna Petropoulos and her team at the Center for Classic Beauty in Danvers, MA is pleased to provide solutions that work for restoring hair and thickening it: PRP therapy.
What does PRP stand for?
Dr. Anna Petropoulos uses the acronym of PRP for “platelet-rich plasma.” This is an element of a patient’s natural blood that can be used in stimulating hair growth. It has also been used in many other areas of medicine to stimulate the healing process of the skin and body.
How does PRP therapy work?
Dr. Anna Petropoulos starts the process by taking a blood sample from the patient. The blood is then placed in a device called a centrifuge. The centrifuge will separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other elements of the blood. Then, the PRP is injected into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth. This eliminates the need for surgical hair grafts or follicle grafts and provides a more natural thickening of the hair than surgical alternatives.
Does PRP really provide results?
Absolutely! PRP is great for patients who want to avoid surgical interventions. However, if patients do choose a surgical solution, they will be pleased to learn that Dr. Anna Petropoulos offers the SmartGraft treatment for those who qualify. PRP results do take time to achieve, so patience is necessary in many instances.
