PRP Stimulates Hair Follicles Therefore Promoting Hair Growth

How stimulating Hair Follicles might help re-grow your hair!
First of, what exactly is a hair follicle? A hair follicle is a skin organ that produces hair. Hair production occurs in phases these phases include: (Information from Wikipedia-Hair follicle)
  • Hair growth (anagen) phase
  • Cessation (catagen) phase
  • Rest (telogen) phase
Your own Stem Cells are responsible for hair production. The shape of the hair follicle has an effect on the hair shape and texture of the individual’s hair.

Platelet Rich Plasma Treatments can potentially heal damaged hair follicles and help with Hair Growth.  Many african american women of all ages suffer from a condition called: Traction Alopecia. Traction Alopecia is caused by tight hair styles, weaves, braids and even pony-tails.
Let’s think about this…
What is the job of PRP within our body? PRP’s JOB IS TO HEAL!
Platelet-rich plasma (abbreviation: PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing.

So how does it work when it comes to potential Hair Growth?

Most are familiar with the benefits that platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy can provide for facial rejuvenation and in the treatment of orthopedic injuries, but many people are not aware that it can also play a a part when it comes to hair growth particularly when it comes to Alopecia.

Buckhead Hair Restoration has been treating different types of hair loss for the past years and Dr. Slater uses platelet rich plasma  before hair restoration to help hair grafts heal in place and to minimize schock loss.

PRP Treats Hair Loss and Promotes Hair Growth

Platelet Rich Plasma has proven to be an effective stand-alone treatment for both men and women suffering from certain types of hair loss.  Alopecia, or genetic pattern baldness, causes the hair follicles to gradually shrink, producing progressively thinning hair. Finally they stop producing hair altogether.

Traction Alopecia sometimes responds to PRP, depending on how damaged the follicles are.

If the folicles are very damaged, Dr. Slater often recommends a combination of PRP Scalp Therapy, Neograft Hair Transplantation and LaserCap.

Platelet rich plasma stimulates the body’s natural healing factors, causing the shrinking hair follicles to become healthy again.

PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood supply, so there is no risk of rejection, or other possible complications.

Dr. Slater will determine who is an ideal candidate and first diagnoses the exact causes of hair loss.

Every patient is different and PRP may not be the right treatment for everyone. The first step to stopping hair loss is to book a  consultation with Dr.Slater and the team at Buckhead Hair Restoration in Sandy Springs near Buckhead Atlanta.

Dr. Monte Slater is a double board certified physician with 30 years of medical experience.
