When you want to find a solution to hair loss that leaves you with healthy results, you may want to consider the use of New York Platelet Rich Plasma. Dr. Kevin Ende in New York uses a cutting edge PRP system that involves the use of platelet-derived growth factor, vascular endothelial growth factor, transforming growth factor, and bioactive proteins that support hair growth. The use of New York Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, has been shown to be an effective solution to hair loss in multiple studies. Both women and men have chosen this option for hair loss correction and have been pleased with the results.
How Platelet Rich Plasma Is Prepared
How does a New York Platelet Rich Plasma treatment work? Basically, red and white blood cells, platelets, and other components of blood are separated, resulting in a high concentration of platelets. Dr. Ende uses your own blood to create the PRP kit and the blood is then spun in a centrifuge for separation. Sometimes, platelet activators are added.
The Treatment Process
In spite of the collection of blood, the treatment process is fairly painless. The scalp is numbed temporarily for a short injection sequence. After the PRP is injected into the scalp, it reverses hair miniaturization with a few months and hair growth is noticeably improved within about six months. The injected platelets stimulate new hair growth at the follicles. Some professionals believe the New York Platelet Rich Plasma stimulates stem cells for increased vitality.
Is This an Option for You?
Could this procedure work for your hair loss? If you’re not comfortable with the idea of hair transplants or if you want to enhance the results of a transplant procedure, discuss the PRP treatment with the doctor. Dr. Ende generally recommends that have at least two injections a year to realize the full benefits of the treatment method.
