Learn more during a consultation with our team at the office of Dr. Gregory E. Rauscher, M.D., in Hackensack, NJ.
What Is PRP for Alopecia?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance that is obtained from your own body. When introduced to your body, PRP is an effective choice to help stimulate your body’s natural growth and healing processes, encouraging the production of collagen, tissues, and healthy cells.
Choosing PRP for alopecia treatment is a non-surgical, minimally invasive treatment method. Unlike transplants or other treatments, PRP stimulates your own hair growth, creating natural results.
What Could I Expect from Treatment?
Treatments with PRP for alopecia are performed in the comfort of our New Jersey office. The process begins with harvesting PRP, which starts with a traditional blood draw. This sample is spun in a special centrifuge, separating the unique plasma for treatment from the rest of the blood.
PRP is then applied to specific areas of the scalp. When injected, PRP begins the process of stimulating your body’s growth processes. There is no set downtime associated with a treatment session, and you should be able to return to your normal daily activities.
While results will vary for each person, it is important to remember they will be gradual. You may start to notice your hair naturally growing shortly after treatment, but a regular series of treatments can help you achieve and maintain the best results. Our team can help develop the best PRP for alopecia treatment plan for you.
Am I a Good Candidate?
While using PRP for alopecia can be an effective treatment method, it is most commonly recommended for those who have androgenic alopecia. This is a genetically determined type of hair loss or thinning, and it impacts both men and women.
Although this is a chronic condition and it is not curable, it may be able to managed with treatment. A consultation with our team in Hackensack if using PRP for alopecia can help reduce the effects of this condition.
