PRP Hair Loss Treatment in Toronto
A lot of people mistakenly and singularly associate hair loss with aging. Truth be told, almost anyone can begin to lose their hair throughout any stage of life, regardless of age. On top of that, there are numerous factors that can affect not only the amount of hair that falls out, but also the rate at which you lose it. Genetic predispositions, autoimmune disorders, and even certain medications and treatments can result in minor or drastic hair loss. If you can relate to any of these situations, then La Fontaine Source De Jeunesse has a revolutionary solution to your problem: PRP Hair Loss Treatment in Toronto.
What Is PRP Hair Loss Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an all-natural and innovative hair loss treatment that involves extracting blood samples from parts of your body that produce an abundance of hair to areas of the scalp where hair volume is severely depleted. Plasma is an extremely effective solution to your hair loss problems because it’s made up of platelets that contain growth factor proteins that promote the healthy regeneration and maintenance of new hair strands. The best part is that every step of this procedure utilizes all natural components that are produced by your own body, which means there aren’t any foreign substances being injected into your scalp.
The PRP Hair Restoration Procedure
As mentioned, PRP is formulated from your own blood, which means that there’s virtually no risk involved in this procedure and it’s impossible to develop an allergic reaction. First, your physician will draw a sufficient amount of blood to complete the procedure and then apply a process called centrifugation, which essentially vigorously spins the blood to separate and remove the platelets. This platelet rich plasma is then injected directly into the receiving area of the scalp with the intent of purposely distressing the dermis. Once this happens, the body goes into “healing mode” and calls upon restorative cells to repair the dermis, which actively promotes healthy hair growth in that specific location.
Unlike more traditional forms of hair transplant surgery, there’s no recovery period or aftercare necessary and you can resume your normal activities immediately.
Benefits of PRP Hair Growth
Fundamentally, the PRP hair loss treatment is non-invasive and the entire procedure typically only takes about 30 minutes to complete depending on the size of the receiving area of the scalp. Undeniably, the biggest benefit is that this procedure doesn’t involve the use of artificial or foreign substances, which guarantees that your body will respond positively to it.
Combining PRP with Hair Transplant Surgery
To optimize the results for our patients with more severe hair loss, La Fontaine Source De Jeunesse has often combined PRP with hair transplant surgery and other topical medicinal applications such as Rogaine and Minoxidil. These are elaborate procedures that are usually reserved for patients experiencing an abundance of hair loss on their scalps.
