“Providing Traditional and Cutting Edge Regenerative Solutions”
— Dr. Gloria Tumbaga, MD
What causes hair loss?
If you suffer from male- or female-pattern baldness, you’re not alone. It’s a widespread condition that affects about 30 million women and 50 million men in the United States.
You may start losing your hair at a young age, but the likelihood of going bald increases as time passes. More than 50% of men experience some degree of hair loss after the age of 50.
Experts believe pattern baldness is related to heredity, so if your parents or grandparents lost their hair, you might be at a higher risk of hair loss yourself.
How does platelet-rich plasma treatment for hair loss work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative treatment in which your body heals itself using your blood. Although it’s relatively cutting edge when applied to hair loss, PRP has been used to treat sports injuries for years.
Platelets play a key role in healing because they contain growth factors that encourage other cells to regenerate. In the case of pattern baldness, PRP may promote the growth of new hair follicles, increasing the thickness of your hair.
How effective is PRP treatment for hair loss?
Research shows that PRP therapy creates a significant reduction in hair loss in patients whose pattern baldness didn’t respond to other treatments such as Minoxidil or Finasteride.
It may take a few months and several treatment sessions to see results, but most patients experience about 30% more hair growth after PRP therapy. In some studies, improvement in hair growth lasted at least one year.
What should I expect from a PRP hair restoration treatment?
First, Dr. Tumbaga draws a small amount of blood from your arm. She processes the blood to separate the platelets before injecting it into your scalp.
She may prepare your scalp to receive the PRP by numbing it and using a microneedling roller. Microneedling activates your body’s healing process and causes minimal pain. Then, Dr. Tumbaga injects PRP into different areas on your scalp.
The length of the procedure depends on the treatment area, but most PRP hair restoration treatments take one to two hours. Side effects are minor and typically disappear within two days, but you may experience mild swelling or tenderness.
