Are You Concerned About Thinning or Receding Hair?

A luscious, full head of hair is often associated with youth, beauty, and vitality. But when thinning or receding hair starts to become noticeable, it can take a toll on our self-confidence. The good news is that you don’t have to live with this issue any longer. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy offers an effective solution to stimulate hair growth and slow down hair loss. At 785 Aesthetic Med Spa, our commitment to superior customer service, a relaxing atmosphere, and cutting-edge technology make us your natural choice for elite hair restoration and PRP plumping treatments in the Kansas area.

How Does PRP Therapy Work?

PRP therapy for hair restoration is a three-step process. First, a small amount of your blood is drawn, typically from your arm, just like for many other medical tests or procedures. Next, the blood is centrifuged to separate its components, which include blood cells, platelet-poor plasma, and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Finally, the extracted PRP is skillfully injected into your scalp in areas where your hair is thinning.

The growth factors within the PRP begin to work their magic. Stem cells are stimulated to reverse the miniaturization of existing hair follicles. Your existing hair is encouraged to grow thicker and stronger. PRP also promotes the formation of new hair follicles by increasing collagen and keratin production, which are essential for healthy hair. The result is thicker hair, more hair follicles, and improved blood flow, creating a fertile environment for your hair to flourish.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Therapy?

PRP therapy is most effective for individuals who still have some hair growth in the treatment zone. It is not as effective for completely bald spots. If you have some existing hair and are looking to restore and enhance it, PRP therapy may be the ideal choice for you.

Why Choose 785 Aesthetic Med Spa for PRP Treatments?

Experience matters, and at 785 Aesthetic Med Spa, we have years of it. We provide a no-pressure consultation, and we are passionate about what we do. Additionally, we offer various treatment options to maximize your overall benefits. If a combination of treatments or procedures is more effective for your specific needs, we’ll let you know upfront.

How Long Does a Typical PRP Treatment Last?

A typical PRP treatment takes approximately 30 minutes to complete. Most patients require three sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, with maintenance treatments recommended thereafter. The procedure is about as painful as any typical injection, and we offer numbing cream to minimize discomfort for our patients.

When Can I Expect to See Results?

The first noticeable result is a reduction in hair shedding, followed by improved hair texture and thickness within two weeks of the initial treatment. However, the full extent of hair regrowth and thickening may take approximately 3-6 months to become measurable.

Is There Any Downtime?

PRP therapy involves using your own blood, reducing the risk of adverse reactions. While you may experience some tenderness, swelling, or redness at the treatment site immediately after the session, it should not hinder your daily activities. It’s advisable to avoid strenuous exercise for a few days to allow the area to heal, but there is virtually no downtime associated with PRP treatments.
