If you’re beginning to see more and more scalp due to less and less hair, you may want to consider PRP for hair loss. Coast Regenerative Medicine offers PRP hair loss treatment for men and women in Southern California, including San Bernardino and Orange counties, Covina, San Diego, the Inland Empire, and other nearby areas.
What is PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
PRP hair loss treatment is a medical procedure, usually performed under local anesthesia. The patient’s own blood is injected into specified treatment areas of the scalp, with the goal of restoring lost hair by stimulating new hair growth.
The use of PRP for hair loss and stimulating hair growth is still emerging, but as research continues, medical professionals are reporting very encouraging results for both men and women suffering from lost or thinning hair.
What Does PRP Hair Loss Treatment Cost in Santa Ana, CA?
PRP hair treatment cost can vary from patient to patient based in part on the complexity of the treatment and number of sessions needed.
During your initial consultation, a treatment plan will be developed and the cost for your specific case is thoroughly evaluated and discussed. You’ll receive a more accurate cost assessment at that time.
Many cosmetic procedures are not covered by insurance, so you may want to check with your insurance provider to see what their policy is with regard to PRP hair loss treatments. If you’ll be responsible for payment, Coast Regenerative Medicine is pleased to offer financing options for their clients through CareCredit®.
How Does PRP Hair Loss Treatment Work?
PRP hair treatment consists of a three-step process. A small amount of blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge which spins at a high rate of speed, separating the platelets from the rest of the blood components. Lastly, the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is injected into your scalp in the hair loss area typically using a local anesthetic to minimize any discomfort.
It’s believed that PRP hair loss treatment is effective for hair re-growth because it increases the blood supply to the hair follicle and aids in thickening the hair shaft, making it stronger.
In order to be most effective, it generally takes several treatments over a period of a few weeks, followed up with maintenance treatments a couple of times a year after that.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
There are many benefits to PRP hair restoration and most patients are extremely happy with their results. Some of the most common benefits include:
- Regrowth of lost hair, up to 30-40%
- Increased self-confidence about appearance
- Minimally invasive, non-surgical and 100% natural treatment
- Reduced allergy risk due to using your own blood platelets
- Virtually pain-free treatment with very little or no downtime needed
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
If you’re a healthy adult battling hair loss or thinning hair, you’re likely a good candidate for PRP hair loss treatment. Best results are seen in those patients with fairly recent hair loss, within the last five years or so.
PRP hair loss treatment may not be recommended for patients suffering with certain medical issues that can cause hair loss, such as lupus or thyroid disorder. It’s also not advisable for people taking blood thinners, as their platelets are not as strong and effective, and the treatment will not work as well for them.
During your complimentary consultation, the doctor will help make sure you have realistic expectations about the results you can expect with PRP hair loss treatment.
You’ll also work together to decide whether or not PRP hair loss treatment is your best option for giving you the results you have in mind. If not, alternative treatment options that may serve you better can be explored.
