Hair loss is normal. In fact, most people lose upward of 100 strands of hair every single day. You don’t necessarily notice this, though, because other hair follicles start growing new hair all the time. This helps people maintain a full head of hair even as they drop so many strands.
At least, that’s the ideal scenario. But if your hair follicles stop working the way they should, the hair loss adds up.
If you’re dealing with noticeable hair loss, you don’t have to sit idly by. And you don’t have to turn to synthetic solutions or surgery, either. Here at LH Spa & Rejuvenation in Livingston and Madison, New Jersey, Robert M. Olson, MD and our team have a way to help you restore your hair naturally.
Unlocking your body’s regenerative power
Our hair restoration treatment uses platelet-rich plasma — or PRP, for short. We get this powerful hair regeneration solution from your own body.
Specifically, your blood contains platelets. Whenever you get hurt, your body sends the platelets there. They start by helping your blood clot, but their work doesn’t stop there. The platelets also deliver growth factors that stimulate and support your body’s healing work.
By creating a plasma that’s rich in platelets from your own blood, we have a way to deliver that added healing capacity right where you need it. That’s why medical experts use PRP for everything from sports injuries to hair regeneration. When we apply the PRP to your scalp, it helps to stimulate new hair growth in hair follicles that have fallen dormant.
What to expect with PRP natural hair restoration
To see ideal results, we usually recommend four PRP appointments. We space the first three sessions four weeks apart, allowing the PRP to go to work between each. We schedule your fourth appointment three months later to infuse your scalp with an extra dose of growth factors, continuing your hair regrowth journey.
At each appointment, Dr. Olson takes a very small sample of your blood to create the PRP. He then injects it into strategic locations on your scalp. You might have mild soreness or swelling after treatment, but there’s no downtime required. Just steer clear of hats, hair products, and exercise for the remainder of the day.
Most people see results within 3–6 months as the PRP goes to work. To help support your hair restoration, we combine PRP treatment with Nutrafol vitamins and the at-home application of topical minoxidil.
