Houston area doctor offers PRP for hair loss
Patients who are experiencing hair loss or thinning may be concerned that there are no low-risk methods of hair replacement. It is important to work with a dermatologist to determine the cause of the problem. PRP for hair loss may be discussed as an appropriate solution for Houston area patients.
What is PRP?
PRP is an acronym for platelet-rich plasma. This is a specific type of therapy that uses platelets from the patient’s own blood and combines it with plasma as an injectable solution. The doctor can inject PRP into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth. PRP assists in increasing the cells needed for the repair and healing of tissues that restore the thickness and volume of the hair. It is a more natural way of addressing hair loss.
Why PRP therapy?
Patients who use PRP for hair loss are often doing so because it is safe and natural. There are no adverse reactions to the injections. There is minimal downtime and patients do not notice any side effects. PRP therapy can also be combined with other hair restoration techniques including microneedling and hair transplants. However, patients should be aware of how other treatments such as laser services, peels, and certain medications may affect the scheduling of their PRP therapy. Following post-care instructions from Dr. Seymour Weaver is the best way to avoid any problems associated with treatment.
