CAN I GET PRP THERAPY FOR MY HAIR LOSS?

Any man or woman suffering hair loss is potentially a good candidate for PRP therapy, but patients with early hair loss usually yield the most favorable results. PRP is best suited for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is an inherited type of hair thinning that typically presents on the top of the head. In women, this can appear as a widening part with average hair thickness at the back of the head. Those with parts of “poor quality” hair growth of the scalp with active hair follicles usually have the greatest results with PRP hair regrowth therapy. If you are interested in whether or not you can get PRP therapy for your hair loss, contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Kevin Hanz today.

HOW DOES PRP THERAPY WORK FOR HAIR LOSS?

A nonsurgical process, PRP therapy is a short, one-hour in-office visit. The session begins with drawing a little bit of your blood and placing it in a specialized machine, which rotates the blood at high speed to remove the platelets from the remainder of the blood elements. Next, a local anesthetic is applied to your scalp and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into balding areas of your scalp. Then, microneedling is performed on the scalp to cause micro-trauma and micro-channels to the epidermis, which triggers your platelet-rich plasma and allows it to penetrate deep into the skin of your scalp. Our protocol for nonsurgical management of baldness contains an initial therapy and maintenance treatments roughly every nine months to a year.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER MY PRP HAIR THERAPY?

There is no recovery period necessary after this process with practically no limits or restrictions. If anything, you can develop some discoloration, minor swelling, and mild tenderness to the treated areas of your scalp; however, these symptoms typically only last up to 48 hours. Results are usually noticed around 4 – 6 months after the first session and will continue to improve for as much as a full year following treatment. Since PRP therapy isn’t a permanent option for reversing hair loss, repeat treatments are suggested every 12 – 18 months.

How much is PRP therapy for hair loss?

The two main factors that will determine your PRP therapy costs are your level of hair loss and the number of treatments you’ll need to reach your aesthetic goals. During your consultation with Dr. Hanz, he will examine your scalp, level of hair loss and listen to your goals. After that, he will be able to create a treatment plan for you and estimate your costs.

Can I combine PRP therapy with other hair treatments?

Yes, you can. Combining PRP therapy for hair loss with other hair restoration therapies like microneedling, topical medications, and others can often improve your results. Ask Dr. Hanz about other hair loss treatments during your consultation and what combination is best to reach your hair restoration goals.

How often will I need PRP treatments?

An average PRP therapy for hair loss treatment plan consists of three treatments spaced a month apart. Every patient will have a personalized treatment plan devised by Dr. Hanz. If your hair loss is more severe, he may recommend more initial treatments that can taper off as you begin to see results. Dr. Hanz may suggest maintenance treatments every 12 – 18 months.

How effective is PRP hair loss therapy?

Many patients see an increase in hair growth and thickness. However, every patient’s results are unique and depend on their level of hair loss and their body’s response to the PRP therapy. Remaining realistic about your hair restoration results and having patience while your body begins to respond to the treatment is important. Most patients will begin to see results after 4 – 6 months.

Do PRP injections in the scalp for hair loss hurt?

Dr. Hanz will use an anesthetic on your scalp to numb the treatment area. This will help prevent any possible pain or discomfort during the treatment process. After you’re done, your scalp may feel numb and tingly, but normal sensation returns quickly.

What is Lipo AI?

LipoAI's  involves identifying fat without immediate extraction, allowing Dr. Hanz to precisely target and dissolve fat cells while preserving surrounding tissues. This targeted approach not only minimizes bodily trauma and reduces the risk of vascular or nerve damage but also promotes skin tightening for smoother, more natural-looking results. By liquefying fat prior to removal, the procedure ensures a gentler extraction process, contributing to enhanced patient comfort and expedited post-operative recovery.

What is Renuvion®?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I know if Lipo ai is right for me?

The first major advancement in decades of skin treatments for the face, Renuvion is a new and effective nonsurgical option for smoothing and contracting the skin — all in one procedure. Renuvion is an amazing non-surgical solution for reducing wrinkles and rhytides, but it’s not for everybody. This procedure requires recovery time and is not recommended for patients with darker skin tones but is limited to patients with Fitzpatrick skin types I, II, or III. Dr. Kevin Hanz will talk to you about your goals, your lifestyle, and whether Renuvion is the right option for you.

What can Lipo ai Treat?

LipoAI can treat various areas of the body where excess fat accumulates, including the abdomen, thighs, arms, back, buttocks, and submental region (under the chin). It's effective for both large and small areas, providing precise contouring and skin tightening.

    How does Lipo ai work?

    Lipo AI skin tightening treatment works by using laser energy to target the deeper layers of the skin. The laser heats the collagen fibers in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting tighter, smoother skin over time.

    Why is this treatment good for my skin?

    This treatment is beneficial for the skin because it stimulates collagen production, which helps to improve skin elasticity and firmness. It also promotes cell renewal, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance.

    Will I be asleep during the Lipo AI treatment?

    Lipo AI does not require a patient to be asleep or undergo general anesthesia. The procedure may be completed with a patient awake. Patients are given a light sedative to feel more relaxed and insure a pleasant, comfortable experience. Many of our patients prefer to avoid general anesthesia and really appreciate the awake approach. Having said that, we do offer the possibility of full anesthesia for those patients that may prefer to be more asleep during the procedure.

    What should I expect during the recovery time?

    During the recovery period, patients may experience some swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated areas. The recovery typically involves significantly less down time than other forms of Liposuction. Symptoms are usually mild and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days to a week after the procedure. Patients may appreciate initial results in as little as 2-3 days, though maximum benefits may take several weeks to months to become fully apparent as the body heals and remodels.
