Male or female pattern baldness, called androgenic alopecia, is the most common type of baldness, affecting half of all men by age 50 and a surprisingly high number of women as they age. Fortunately, today we have an all-natural and highly effective solution for this type of hair loss with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration in Irvine, California at Jade Phoenix Medical Aesthetics.
A concentrated portion of your blood, PRP is chock-full of healing properties and growth factors which spur healing and renewal wherever applied. Injected into the scalp, PRP reawakens dormant hair follicles and boosts blood flow to help thicken existing hair and spur new hair growth for a naturally fuller, thicker head of your very own hair. Many other medspas only use a single spin technique, which often results in significantly sub-optimal platelet concentrations. At Jade Phoenix Aesthetic Medicine, we use the double spin technique, which ensures a consistent 4x+ platelet concentration — the level shown in the scientific literature needed to achieve optimum results.
PRP Hair Restoration is ideal for androgenic alopecia, the most common type of hair loss. We can help you determine if PRP is right for you during your personal consultation!
This simple treatment takes less than an hour to complete in our medspa. You will relax while we draw your blood, preparing your PRP for injection by spinning it in a centrifuge. Once your PRP is ready, we will carefully inject it into your scalp.
There is little to no downtime with PRP Hair Restoration. With any injection, there is risk of swelling, bruising and pinpoint bleeding, but these side effects resolve quickly on their own. You may wish to wear a hat following your treatment in the event you experience any of these side effects.
We will numb your treatment areas prior to injection to help you feel comfortable during the injection process. With any injection, you may experience a slight stinging sensation as the needle is being inserted. But this discomfort immediately dissipates once the needle is withdrawn. You may experience some soreness and swelling in the hours following your treatment as well, but overall, PRP Hair Restoration is well tolerated!
Hair growth is a gradual process, which means PRP Hair Restoration reveals gradual improvements. You should start noticing new hair growth within a month following your treatment, with continued improvements as you undergo your series of treatments.
For your best results, we recommend a series of three treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart. Many patients achieve their best results with several PRP treatments. We will work with you to devise the optimal PRP treatment regimen to meet your hair restoration goals. Once you achieve your goals, follow-up PRP treatments are needed to maintain your results.
Yes! PRP has been used by doctors and surgeons alike for decades to speed healing after injury and surgery. Because PRP is a substance from your very own blood and a healing substance by nature, there’s almost no risk of an adverse reaction.
