Dr. Kirscher, DNP, NP-C is proud to offer PRP (platelet rich plasma) therapy for hair loss as an exciting new non-surgical therapeutic option for men and women who suffer from thinning hair.
This advanced and FDA cleared hair restoration technique uses a patient’s own blood to effectively treat hair loss while stimulating new hair growth.
PRP injections reverse the shrinkage of hair follicles that occurs during androgenetic alopecia and stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
PRP treatment is a non- surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning due to androgenic alopecia (common baldness). The treatment involves withdrawing a sample of the patient’s own blood, processing it so only the PRP growth factors remain, and injecting it into the scalp to stimulate natural hair growth.
PRP contains specific growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle:
- Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)—promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation;
- Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)—promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism;
- Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)—promotes blood vessel formation;
- Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)—promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation;
- Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)—promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation;
- Insulin Like Growth Factor – (IGF)—a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
An effective, natural treatment for men and women suffering from hair loss
Efficacy of PRP
PRP is a non-surgical based therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation for thinning hair. Larger clinical studies are pending but the current medical literature contains numerous optimistic results. One recent study of 100 patients undergoing PRP hair restoration showed an increase in hair density of over 50% at 3 months following treatment.
The life cycle of a hair follicle can last from 2-8 years and has 4 stages: anagen (growth phase), catagen (regression phase), telogen (resting phase), and exogen (shedding phase). New hair only grows in the anagen phase so it may take a few months to see new hair growth after your PRP treatment.
How effective is PRP at restoring lost hair?
Several clinical research studies conclude that PRP is a simple, safe, and cost-effective treatment for hair loss. The Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery published a study that found significant improvement in hair regrowth among most patients with various types of hair loss. Additionally, the patients in this study still showed positive results at a six-month follow-up, which suggests that PRP treatments are a smart investment for long-acting hair regrowth.
What can I expect from a PRP hair rejuvenation treatment?
First, Dr. Kirscher evaluates your scalp and hair during an initial consultation. Then, he works with you to develop a customized hair restoration treatment plan.
This varies depending on your unique needs, but most patients require several treatment sessions spaced four weeks apart.
To enhance your comfort, Dr. Kircher may apply a topical anesthetic or recommend pain medications before the procedure. This will help minimize the pain but this is not a painless procedure.
You may notice improvements shortly after your treatment, but optimal results typically occur after two or three treatments.
