Understanding Regenerative Medicine for Hair Restoration

While genetics plays a significant role in whether a person will suffer thinning hair or balding areas, regenerative medicine brings new hope for hair restoration. PRP, or “platelet-rich plasma,” is a substance created from your blood. PRP has been used for over twenty years by doctors to speed wound healing and stimulate the hair follicles to promote thicker, healthier hair. Dr. Alizadeh offers Platinum PRP 2.0, which isolates 5 times the regenerative cells compared to traditional PRP. Dr. Alizadeh also offers PRF, or “Platelet Rich Fibrin,” as well as NeoGraft hair transplants for hair follicle rejuvenation in New York City.

How PRP/PRF Hair Restoration Works

The PRF/Platinum PRP 2.0 contains “growth factors” that have a regenerative effect. After your own blood is drawn, it is placed in a centrifuge to isolate it from the rest of the blood, so the product is concentrated. The growth factors in PRP/PRF are known to trigger healthy cell growth, and patients who have regular hair restoration treatments with PRP/PRF are reporting very positive results. 

The platelets in the PRP/PRF work to stimulate stem cells in the hair follicle. PRP/PRF is also an effective treatment for patients who have had hair transplants, aiding the newly transplanted hair follicles to become healthy and productive. While results vary from patient to patient, PRP/PRF hair restoration therapy three or four times a year has been seen to produce impressive results.

The Advantages Of PRF/Platinum PRP 2.0 Hair Restoration

Some patients do not want to undergo a hair transplant procedure or are experiencing the early stages of thinning. PRP/PRF hair restoration is a regenerative therapy used to stimulate healthy cell growth. As the PRP/PRF develops from your blood, there is no concern about adverse reactions to the treatment. As we age, the hair follicles’ hair quality can diminish, with strands becoming finer and thinner. Aging hair follicles stop producing thick, healthy hair, or eventually, any hair at all – but they are still present in the scalp. At Cosmoplastic Surgery in New York, our PRP/PRF hair restoration is a treatment geared towards regenerating existing hair follicles, allowing them to produce thicker, healthier strands.

PRP/ PRF Hair Restoration Treatment: The Procedure

The procedure is performed with the following steps:

  • Blood is drawn at our office, just like any other blood draw in a medical office.
  • The PRP/PRF is extracted with the use of a centrifuge.
  • An anesthetic is used to numb the area of the scalp to be treated.
  • The PRP/PRF is then injected into the target area.
  • Your hair and scalp are then washed.
  • You can return to your regular activities, with no restrictions or downtime.

Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration And Beyond

The PRP/PRF contains three to five times the number of platelets in natural blood, and these platelets contain growth factors that are known to be effective for wound healing. With Platinum PRP 2.0, it is possible to isolate 5 times the regenerative cells compared to traditional PRP. A new development in regenerative medicine, PRP/PRF is now being used in various applications, including cosmetic treatments to help skin regenerate and stay young and firm, in addition to stimulating natural hair growth in men and women with thinning hair.

PRP/PRF Hair Restoration Regimen & Results

Your treatments will occur every six weeks during the initial phase, and once completed, most patients are treated twice a year. As every patient is unique in physiology and response to PRP/PRF treatment, we will monitor your progress carefully and adjust treatment schedules as needed. Dr. Alizadeh understands the importance of injecting the PRP/PRF to the correct depth and in the right areas of the scalp so the treatment is as effective as possible. Improvement in hair growth and quality of hair produced are typically seen in about two to six months after treatment.

Enhancing Your Hair Restoration Outcome

To ensure the sustained excellence of your hair restoration outcomes, we advise a regimen of regular treatments. Patients have the option to select individual treatments, including PRF (Platelet-Rich Fibrin) administered 3 times annually, Exosome therapy 1 time yearly, or PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments administered 2 times yearly. For enhanced results, patients may opt to combine these treatments. However, at a minimum, adhering to this scheduled regimen is paramount to maximizing the benefits of your hair restoration journey.
