As we age, many of us experience hair loss. While some have it worse than others, it can be incredibly frustrating to deal with and even more frustrating to disguise. Thankfully, new technologies have come available to help restore and regrow lost or thinning hair. We’re thrilled to announce a new treatment now available at Wisconsin Vein Center & MediSpa: PRP Hair Restoration.
A QUICK OVERVIEW
This unique treatment involves a multi-step process. First, we draw a bit of blood and process it in a centrifuge to isolate the enriched cells, in what is known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP). These cells contain essential growth factors and proteins that stimulate natural hair regrowth. Using a series of ultra-fine needles, the PRP is carefully and precisely injected into the scalp.
WHY WE RECOMMEND IT
PRP Hair Restoration is an incredible, non-invasive alternative to hair transplant surgery. The procedure works especially well for women who have lost hair around their temples during or after pregnancy, due to hormones from menopause, or due to traction (pulling the hair back). It’s also wonderful for general hair loss among both men and women, and is best when performed within 5 years of the first signs of hair loss.
THE TREATMENT SCHEDULE
For most patients we recommend an initial series of 4 treatments, performed about a month apart. To ensure the treatments keep working, we suggest coming back once or twice a year after the initial series for touch-ups.
