Hair loss typically occurs as a result of damaged hair follicles that are no longer able to produce hair normally. Rao Dermatology offers Platelet-Rich plasma (PRP) treatments to help restore your hair. These treatments can be used to help repair and regenerate damaged hair follicles that have resulted in hair loss. The growth factors in PRP help stimulate circulation in the treatment area, which improves blood supply and brings important nutrients to the hair follicles that help them function normally. Over time, PRP can help restore thicker, fuller, healthier hair regrowth and can yield results that are comparable to hair transplants.The results of PRP treatments for hair loss develop gradually as the platelets work to repair the damaged hair follicles. Most patients begin to see visible improvement in hair growth within three to six months of their PRP treatment. Many patients will require at least three treatment sessions in order to achieve optimal results of this hair restoration method. Individual results may vary.
