Get Rid of Hair Loss and Restore Your Youthful Look

Hair loss can affect anyone and it can happen for a variety of reasons – genetics, medications, excessive hair styling, and hormonal changes. No matter why it’s happening, it oftentimes negatively impacts your confidence. But there is hope!

If you’ve noticed thinning hair or hair loss, consider a hair restoration treatment that will help you improve your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. 

How to Treat Hair Loss 

Treating hair loss can actually be pretty simple and relatively low maintenance. The latest non-surgical hair restoration treatment, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), is a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp. 

How does Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) work? 

Platelets contain healing growth factors and signal your tissue to regenerate and multiply. In your hair, your growth factors and stem cells will work together to reverse the shrinking of the hair follicle and put the dormant hair back into the growth stage. 

PRP helps you increase your hair density by doing the following:

  • Increase blood supply to the follicle
  • Increase shaft size (thickness)
  • Trigger and maintain the hair growth phase
  • Control the hair growth cycle
  • Decrease hair loss

Hair Restoration with PRP is an easy three step process: 

  • Step 1: Collection tube draws your blood and is placed into a centrifuge
  • Step 2: After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe
  • Step 3: Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement

Reasons to Consider PRP Hair Restoration Treatment

1. Improve your self esteem 

If your hair loss is impacting your confidence and your day-to-day self-esteem, then it’s time to consider different treatment options. You’ll leave feeling confident, and you won’t experience the same anxiety when you’re in social situations.

2. Safe treatment

The treatment that the Vein & Skin Center of Hawaii offers is a simple and safe process with no downtime or recovery. The whole process only takes about 20 minutes. 

Although you can take a warm shower the evening of the treatment, it’s advised not to use any harsh dyes or chemicals in your hair for 48 hours. You also may experience some sensitivity, but there are anesthetic solutions available such as topical analgesic or cold ambient air to minimize discomfort. 

3. Cost effective

Unlike with surgical hair restoration, the PRP process is more cost effective and treats the underlying medical problem that surgery doesn’t. 

4. Low maintenance 

The PRP treatment is very low maintenance. Although it will vary based on personal need, after an initial treatment, many physicians suggest only 2-4 treatments a year. Initially, though, you may do several treatments spaced 1 month apart.

5. Impressive results 

The results will speak for themselves. This treatment will improve your hair density and although the genetic problem will remain, regular PRP treatments will significantly slow down the effects of hair loss.
