Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment in Albuquerque is an exciting biologically-based treatment developed from the field of Regenerative Medicine. Non-surgical hair restoration harnesses the power of the platelet to stimulate the regrowth of natural, thick, healthy hair where thinning has occurred.
THE ABILITY TO REGROW YOUR HAIR IS INSIDE YOU!
Albuquerque hair restoration procedures are performed in office by Dr. Lui. She is proud to offer the latest innovation in hair restoration. PRP therapy has been safely and successfully used in hundreds of thousands of procedures worldwide for more than 20 years—including orthopedics and sports medicine and oral, neurological plastic and cosmetic surgeries. Positive outcomes for skin and wound healing are confirmed by published medical literature from both Europe and the United States. Because PRP uses your own cells, it is immunologically neutral and poses no danger of hypersensitivity or allergic or foreign-body reactions. By using your own cells, the chance of a blood infection is also eliminated, and, of course, we use sterile technique in every stage of the treatment. Evidence in the field of hair restoration supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
PRP treatment is effective for both male and female pattern hair loss. PRP therapy has also regrown hair in cases of alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and non-hereditary hair loss. It is estimated that approximately 56 million Americans are affected by hair loss, and up to 40% are women! By taking a small amount of your blood, then concentrating and separating the blood components, producing Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP. Four percent of our blood is made of platelets and on the surface of the platelets are as many as 1100 growth factors or proteins, when concentrated, are capable of regenerating human cells.
The growth factors work in numerous ways to improve and regenerate hair by providing nutrition and promoting new blood supply to the follicle; increasing hair shaft size. Additionally, studies show the growth factors in PRP reduce inflammation in the scalp and turn on follicular stem cells.
