What Is The Best Method For Hair Restoration?

November 24, 2020

It’s no secret that many people struggle with hair loss. There are many hair restoration options and solutions for individuals. PRP (or platelet-rich plasma) therapy is one method that doesn’t use any external chemicals or require surgery.

Dr. Robert Langdon and his team at The Langdon Center provide PRP therapy for men and women experiencing hair loss.

What is PRP?

PRP or “platelet-rich plasma” is a component of the blood that significantly enhances the healing process and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s the liquid, plasma portion of the blood and is often used in regenerative medicine.

Platelets are sometimes known as thrombocytes and are blood cells that perform essential functions in the human body. Without platelets, the body would seldom recover properly from even simple things like paper cuts.

Platelet-rich plasma is also fast becoming a popular option for patients who are experiencing hair loss and are looking for more natural solutions to stop and even reverse the problem.

Can PRP be Used to Treat Hair Loss?

PRP therapy is one of the top options chosen by patients who seek viable hair restoration solutions. PRP therapy uses platelet-rich plasma from a patient’s own blood to help reverse the effects of hair loss. 

Hair restoration with PRP therapy is a three-step process. First, some blood is drawn from the patient — typically from their arm.

Secondly, the blood (in a test tube) goes into a centrifuge device that rapidly spins the blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma from red blood cells and platelet-poor plasma. Finally, the platelet-rich plasma gets drawn into a syringe and injected into specific scalp areas.

Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration

When compared to other hair restoration treatments, PRP therapy is minimally-invasive. There is no major surgery to worry about, and downtime is minimal. Each PRP therapy session with Dr. Langdon only takes around 90 minutes.

Most patients that choose PRP for hair loss will see significant results within three months of their treatment. Top-up treatments will ensure long-lasting results and can even stop future hair loss.

Last but not least, there are no side effects with PRP hair restoration as each treatment uses the patient’s own blood, leading to virtually no chance of adverse effects.

Am I a Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration is available for men and women experiencing hair loss. The results will vary between patients, but people tend to see the best results when having treatment during the early stages of hair loss.

Some people may not make good candidates for PRP therapy, but this will be determined at the initial consultation. The exceptions are typically patients who are on blood-thinning medicine, are heavy smokers, or have been diagnosed with certain medical conditions.

My experience at the Langdon Center was wonderful. The staff were friendly, helpful, and patient. Dr. Langdon did a remarkable job. I am so pleased I am already saving for my next procedure.
