PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration in Norwich, CT
One of the most exciting advances in the field of medicine is harnessing the power of growth factors in platelet-rich plasma, or PRP. Growth factors are proven to help the body develop new cells, which can shorten healing times. Connecticut Surgical Arts offers PRP therapy as a non-surgical hair restoration solution for men and women in Norwich, Colchester, Mystic, Waterford, Glastonbury and surrounding communities in Connecticut.
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, has been studied extensively for its applications in the field of medicine, and clinicians around the world are discovering the many benefits of PRP therapy. Patients are experiencing faster recoveries, less downtime and fewer post-procedure complications thanks to the growth factors in PRP. In recent years, PRP has come to the forefront of aesthetic treatments as an innovative solution for many concerns, including hair restoration.
What are the Benefits of PRP Therapy?
Although the exact mechanism for how growth factors enhance healing has not been discovered, the benefits to our patients are well understood. Traditional hair restoration techniques require surgery, and this can mean downtime, discomfort and lengthy recovery periods. PRP therapy is non-surgical, so you have little to no downtime. Post-procedure, you may experience only mild symptoms that last two to three days.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for PRP Therapy?
The ideal candidate for hair loss treatment with PRP therapy are individuals who wants to regrow their natural hair over a period of time rather than undergo surgery that may require significant healing and downtime. Another factor for candidacy is the viability of the follicles in the treatment area.
What Should I Expect from PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma is extracted from your own blood. We begin by drawing a small amount of blood into a collection tube. The vial is then placed in a machine that spins it to separate the components. The PRP appears as a clear fluid above the red blood cells. It is then drawn into a syringe and injected into the scalp.
No downtime is required, but you may want to rest for a few hours, as you may have some minor discomfort, tenderness and pinpoint bleeding. These symptoms only last two to three days.
Stimulating new hair growth with PRP therapy takes time, but new hairs may emerge in the area. You may notice that some of the hairs fall out, and this is part of the natural growing cycle. Repeat treatments may be necessary to ensure a consistent and natural growth pattern.
