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 Givens MD | 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.
THE SOLUTION TO PAIN AND ANXIETY DURING TREATMENTS:
One of the biggest concerns our Dubuque patients have when considering some of the more advanced treatments like Moxi and dermal filler is pain management. This fear is understandable; the human brain is hardwired to experience anxiety at the prospect of pain. At Faces Medspa, we make every effort to keep our patients completely comfortable before, during, and after their procedures. 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.
If you're interested in learning more about how Pro-Nox can be incorporated into your comfortable treatment, call Faces Medspa today.
