PRP for hair loss: a natural treatment option available at Orchard Park dermatologist
If you are one of the millions of men and women who have experienced hair loss, you are not alone. Losing your hair can take an enormous toll on your self-confidence but knowing that you have options is essential. At Orchard Park Dermatology, dermatologist Dr. Peter Accetta is proud to offer a non-surgical, medication-free treatment option for men and women suffering from hair loss: platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy.
PRP: harnessing your body’s regenerative potential
The use of platelet-rich plasma has exploded in recent years in various medical and aesthetic settings, and for a good reason. PRP is an all-natural solution that harnesses your body’s healing powers to regenerate and restore damaged tissues. After doing a simple blood draw similar to what you’d have done during an annual physical exam, we use a centrifuge machine that spins the blood very rapidly to separate the plasma from very small cells called platelets. These cells contain growth factors that help the body heal from injuries and regenerate healthy new tissues. Because the treatment uses your own body’s cells, there is minimal risk for allergies, disease transmission, or other adverse side effects from PRP use.
How does PRP work for hair loss?
During PRP treatment for hair loss, we strategically inject PRP into areas of the scalp where you have experienced hair loss. Once injected, the PRP helps stimulate thicker, fuller hair by increasing the blood supply to your hair follicles and prolonging the hair growth cycle’s anagen (growth) phase.
Actual Patient Results
Treatment with PRP for hair loss is:
- Minimally invasive
Additionally, to enhance your results, we provide you with a Theradome Pro (LTT 80) laser phototherapy device to use at home after your treatment.
You have options for hair loss
If you are tired of trying to hide your hair loss, there are effective solutions available. Some hair loss can occur due to underlying health conditions. So it is essential to work with a board-certified dermatologist to evaluate the cause of your hair loss to decide whether it is genetic or due to a different condition that requires further treatment.
