HAIR RESTORATION

As we age, our hair begins to thin and female-pattern or male-pattern baldness can occur. This can cause feelings of insecurity which affect your mental well-being. At Faces Medspa in Dubuque, IA, we believe everyone deserves to be happy, healthy, and confident no matter what age. That’s why we offer PRP hair restoration. PRP hair restoration is a non-surgical therapy method to proactively prevent hair loss. The PRP serum is injected into the areas of the scalp where you would like to stimulate more hair growth. Our SkinPen Microneedling device is often used to promote recovery and improve results.

PRP HAIR RESTORATION: HOW IT WORKS

UNDERSTANDING PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP)

Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP is a concentration of platelets and growth factors drawn from your own blood. Platelets are a rich source of proteins that can stimulate stem cells to help restore fibroblast activity and hair follicles.

By utilizing your own blood, we isolate the plasma which then becomes a condensed suspension of your own growth factors. PRP condenses and stimulates peripheral growth factors and stem cells at the delivery site to regenerate hair follicles and stimulate hair growth. Essentially using your body's natural capacity to heal and renew itself.

UNDERSTANDING PRP FOR HAIR RESTORATION

PRP for hair restoration is a non-surgical, non-invasive treatment for alopecia areata and androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male or female hair loss). This treatment can stop hair loss and stimulate new growth, all without surgery. This treatment is ideal for those who are in the early stages of hair loss but can benefit others as long as some hair follicles are present.

There is significant evidence that PRP offers improvement in hair growth in many patients. PRP is rich in specialized proteins called growth factors and cytokines that promote hair growth and healing.

After your initial consultation at Faces Medspa, your treatment will start with your scalp being cleansed and a topical numbing agent applied to the treatment area. Then with a simple blood draw your blood is collected into special tubes which are then spun down to remove red blood cells, leaving the platelet-rich plasma. We offer the most comprehensive PRP treatment for optimal results. The hair restoration treatment at Faces Medspa in Dubuque utilizes both micro-needling and injections in your areas of concern on the head. This ensures concentrated PRP to follicles with injections and increased blood flow and diffuse application of the PRP to the rest of the treatment area with microneedling. 

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

When will I see hair restoration results from SkinPen Microneedling with PRP?


We also often recommend application of prp along with SkinPen Microneedling to further improve hair growth on the scalp. Within 3 weeks you will notice improvement in hair texture, thickness in the hair shaft and regrowth of hair. It typically takes three to six months from your initial treatment to see measurable results.




How long does a hair restoration treatment take?


The entire treatment including the preparation of your PRP in the office, cleansing the treatment area, performing SkinPen procedure and injecting PRP solution into the scalp takes less than a half hour for most patients.




How many hair restoration treatments will I need?


For people with thinning hair, we recommend a series of three treatments, performed one month a part for best results. You will need maintenance treatments every 3 months thereafter to maintain the results of your PRP hair regeneration treatment.




How does the PRP hair restoration treatment work?


Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) and Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) is used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. PRP or PRF is injected into areas of thinning hair on the scalp. Highly concentrated plasma contains platelets that release growth factors; these growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of your existing hair. PRF is often called "second generation PRP" because it allows for release of growth factors over seven days, rather than all at once like older PRP systems. Microneedling with SkinPen is also used with or without PRP to further stimulate hair growth in thinning areas. This can be performed just after PRP injection, or at a separate treatment session.




Does SkinPen Microneedling with PRP Hair Restoration hurt?


We use a cooling device to make the treatment very comfortable. There is minimal tenderness and mild swelling in the injection sites for 3-5 days following the treatment.




How long does it take to see PRP hair restoration results?


We recommend starting with 3 treatments, four weeks apart for best results for most people with thinning hair as an initial treatment. You will need maintenance treatments every three months thereafter to maintain the results of your PRP hair regeneration treatment.

Fortunately, we have a powerful tool at our disposal: an innovative sedation system called Pro-Nox that’s designed to minimize both anxiety and pain.
