WHAT IS PRP THERAPY?
PRP (platelet-rich-plasma) is used for various medical and aesthetic benefits. PRP is extracted from your own blood and contains proteins with effective regenerative properties. These platelets make an effective tool for treating hair loss and thinning, reversing signs of aging and relieving joint pain or muscle injury.
PRP contains powerful growth factors that promote healing and stimulate hair regrowth. The plasma is rich with nutrients and proteins that slow down hair shedding, increase the thickness of hair follicles, stimulate new hair and keeps hair in the growing cycle longer.
At ReNu Med Lounge in Studio City, CA, our expert team is knowledgeable in PRP Therapy and performs the procedure to address concerns for many patients regularly.
How is the PRP obtained?
PRP is obtained from the patient by drawing a small amount of blood.
What’s the process of PRP Injections to Stimulate Hair Growth?
After blood is drawn from the patient, it is placed into a centrifuge, a machine that spins to separate the plasma from the red and white blood cells. The plasma, known as “liquid gold” contains all the growth factors beneficial for hair growth and is injected into the patient’s scalp, focusing on areas experiencing hair loss or thinning.
Do PRP injections hurt?
At ReNu Med Lounge we will ensure our patient is as comfortable as possible during this treatment. We use distraction devices like an instant numbing and cooling solution that reduces the level of pain or discomfort during the treatment. Injections are quick and as comfortable as can be.
What are the other benefits of PRP?
In addition to stimulating hair growth, PRP has a wide range of benefits, including improving:
- Anti-aging facials
- Skin laxity
- Nerve inflammation
- Post-surgical healing
- Acne scarring
- Stretch marks
- Skin tone and texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Under eye bags/circles
- Ligament sprains/tears
- Muscle and joint injuries
- Chronic back and neck pain
- Tennis elbow
- Rotator cuff injuries
- Carpel tunnel syndrome
- Hair loss/thinning
Why should I get PRP Therapy?
Some of the most compelling benefits of PRP for hair growth include:
• Quick and convenient: Treatments can typically be performed in 30 minutes
• Non-Surgical: There are no scars, incisions or recovery time associated with PRP Therapy
• Natural: PRP is a great natural alternative to other hair growth treatments, as it simply uses the patient’s own blood. Hence, there is little to no risk of allergic reactions.
• Long-lasting results: Results last a long time (typically one year after the initial 3-4 sessions)
How many sessions do I need?
Typically we recommend 3-4 sessions (spaced 1 month apart) but varies by patient.
How soon will I see results?
Results vary by patient but typically begin to show 4 weeks after the treatment session and continue to improve with time.
