Learn How All-Natural PRP Can Reverse Thinning Hair

Thinning hair is a common problem for men and women but, in the past, effective treatment was hard to find. There are only two FDA-approved medications that target hair loss, and both come with sometimes significant side effects.

Finasteride, for instance, can cause sexual dysfunction in men. Minoxidil, which is applied topically, can leave your scalp dry and irritated. Hair transplants are expensive and require incisions that can take many weeks to heal.

At Montclair Rejuvenation Center in Verona, New Jersey, we recommend you try all-natural platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy instead. This innovative therapy meets our strict standards for providing aesthetic services that are safe, comfortable, and effective.  

What is PRP therapy?

PRP therapy is an all-natural treatment for thinning hair that requires quick and essentially painless injections into targeted areas of your scalp. There are virtually no side effects with PRP other than a mild pressure sensation at the injection site noted by some patients. Injections are generally given once a month for several months and then spaced further apart as your hair responds to the therapy.

How does PRP regrow hair?

PRP contains substances that promote cell growth, enhance healing, and trigger your body to produce more collagen. All these actions help promote the growing phase of hair, which helps restore lost volume and thickness naturally.

Where does the PRP solution come from?

Your body supplies the PRP necessary for the treatment. Your Montclair Rejuvenation Center provider first draws a tube of blood, usually from your arm and about the same amount you’d supply for a lab test.

The tube of blood is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge that spins it rapidly enough to separate the PRP from red blood cells and other naturally occurring substances. Once the PRP is collected, it’s delivered via a syringe and a tiny needle to targeted treatment areas of your scalp.  

Because PRP comes from your own blood supply, there’s no risk of rejection and side effects are essentially nonexistent. PRP therapy is also easy on your schedule. You won’t need to apply creams, take oral medications, or spend time hiding out while your transplant heals. Come in for a treatment and then get back to your normal routine once you leave the Montclair Rejuvenation Center.

Start PRP early for best results

While it can be helpful for hair loss that’s occurred over many years, PRP therapy is often most effective and works more quickly when hair loss has occurred within five years.
