What Is Studio Scalp Treatment?
By now you’re probably familiar with, or at least have heard of the “vampire facial,” a skin treatment that essentially uses your own blood to help facilitate a glowing, youthful complexion. What you probably haven’t heard of is that there’s a similar treatment for hair loss, and yes, it requires your blood, too. It’s called platelet-rich plasma, a.k.a. PRP.
Here’s how it works:
Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors.
Growth factors, in a sense, play the role of messengers, signaling skin cells to function. In fact, they’ve been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis, signs of aging, etc. The good news for anyone with thinning hair is that growth factors can help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth.
What Does It Do?
People who desire a non-surgical regrowth strategy that is safe and effective choose the Studio Scalp Hair Treatment. This innovative procedure combines the best platelet rich plasma (PRP) and injectable nutrients to treat hair loss and to facilitate hair growth.
PRP is loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis, stem cell migration and localized cell growth. PRP is effective for both male and female hair loss. PRP is used successfully to treat alopecia areata and other causes of non-hereditary hair loss.
What Is The Process?
PRP therapy is a three-step process:
To make PRP, your doctor takes some of your blood (step one), spins it to separate the platelets from the other cells (step two), and then the platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth (step three).
Platelets have hundreds of specialized proteins called growth factors that aid healing. Since PRP is concentrated with many more platelets than normal blood, it’s often used to treat wounds, tendon tears, and arthritis pain. Now, doctors are using it to regrow hair. They inject PRP into your scalp with a small needle. The idea is that the growth factors help to create or stimulate new hair follicles. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.
For best results, consistency is key. Treatments are typically performed once a month for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on the individual patient’s response and results. Following this protocol, anticipated results can first be seen within two to three months.
The first result that patients usually note is decreased hair shedding, followed by early regrowth and increased length of hair.
It’s important to keep in mind that PRP can, and should, be a part of a multifaceted program to treat hair thinning and loss. Your doctor may prescribe you finasteride to help promote hair regrowth. Topical treatments, like over-the-counter minoxidil treatments. If this interests you, be sure to ask us about Dr. Max’s Hair Boost Solution.
