Is There a Treatment for Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a frustrating issue that can take a toll on self-confidence. It has various causes, including aging and genetic predisposition. Thankfully, hair restoration technologies have improved drastically over the past decades, bringing hope to the men and women suffering from hair loss.

A search for "hair loss treatment near me" brings up an overwhelming amount of options and treatments. Some, like creams and vitamins, are questionable while others, like hair transplants, are dangerous. Hair restoration using platelet rich plasma, on the other hand, is a promising hair loss treatment. Chronic Care is the Richmond leader in platelet rich plasma (PRP) treatments. We use this regenerative therapy to invoke the natural healing capabilities of the body, promoting hair growth without invasive procedures.


How Does Hair Restoration PRP Work?

The first step of PRP hair restoration is blood extraction. Your licensed physician takes your blood and places it in a centrifugation machine which increases the concentration of protein rich platelets. Then, the physician injects this serum into your scalp where you are experiencing hair loss.

This process reactivates hair growth and results may be visible within a month. Various treatments may be recommended depending on your rate of hair loss. Research has shown hair restoration with PRP to be a viable treatment as it focuses on promoting the natural healing capabilities of the body.

PRP May Provide Long-Lasting Results

Research has shown that PRP can increase hair count and thickness, providing a viable solution for those suffering from hair loss. Unlike surgical hair transplant procedures that may lead to infection or other dangerous side effects, hair restoration using PRP is a minimally invasive treatment that can be completed in 30 minutes or less. As a natural treatment, this procedure uses the body's own healing properties to stimulate new hair growth in the scalp.

Step 1

Your blood is extracted in our office to be used in creating the PRP.

Step 2

The physician places your drawn blood into the centrifugation machine, extracting the protein rich platelets from your blood. This process also increases the concentration of these platelets, creating a rich and viable serum.

Step 3

The PRP, created from your own blood, is injected into the areas of your scalp that are experiencing hair loss and thinning. These injections are small and not very painful, minimal side effects include bruising and mild soreness.

Step 4

Watch for results! On average, hair growth may be reactivated within 1 - 3 months after an initial series of injections. Afterwards, sustained hair growth is made possible with an injection every 6 - 12 months.

Put your wigs away and hang up your hat. With Chronic Care of Richmond's hair restoration treatment using PRP, you can have those long luscious locks you dream of. Contact us today to request a consultation.

How is PRP made?

First, blood is drawn from the body. Then, through a process called centrifugation, the platelets are separated from the red and white blood cells and their concentration increased. Typically, PRP has five to ten times the concentration of platelets than what is found in regular blood. It is this high concentration of platelets that stimulates healing, or new growth, when PRP is injected back into the body.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a protein rich liquid derived from your blood. Blood is a plasma that contains three main components: red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. While platelets are mainly responsible for blood clotting, they also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors. These growth factors are responsible for stimulating growth and facilitating healing in the body.
