Rather than treating your hair loss with drugs and surgeries, consider Texas Rich and PRP hair restoration treatment with regenerative therapy. Regenerative therapy gained momentum in the 1990s with the rise of tissue engineering and cell research, its objective to restore or rejuvenate damaged tissues or organs due to illness, injury, aging, or other causes. Regenerative therapy can provide solutions for healing organs and tissues that would otherwise be permanently damaged which often occurs with many types of hair loss and failed treatments.
What is Regenerative Therapy?
When the body is injured or affected by disease the immune system initiates a healing response, however sometimes that response needs support. Through utilizing regenerative medicine, doctors can enhance the healing process allowing a faster and better recovery. Regenerative therapy encompasses cellular therapies, tissue engineering, and the application of medical devices or artificial organs. We at Texas Regenerative and Integrative Centers of Health are pleased to provide our patients with non-surgical regenerative medicine for their successful journey to hair restoration. This type of treatment involves replacing or regenerating human cells and tissues to improve function, and includes therapies such as amniotic tissue injections and platelet-rich plasma (PRP). Scalp hair loss can vary from slight hair thinning to complete baldness. It can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, stress, specific hair treatments, underlying health issues, certain medications, or inherited factors. Though it is more prevalent in men, anyone can experience it. Typically, individuals experience a gradual loss that starts from the hairline or scattered bald patches throughout the scalp.
What is PRP and How Does it Work?
PRP injections have been found to be useful in addressing male pattern baldness, as they can help to prevent hair loss and promote new hair growth. Additionally, PRP can enhance the growth of hair after a transplant procedure. PRP utilizes growth factors naturally present in your platelets to increase blood flow to active and inactive hair follicles resulting in thicker and fuller hair. Clinical studies have shown that PRP is more effective than minoxidil - a commonly used medication for hair loss.
Blood is primarily made up of plasma, which contains red and white blood cells and platelets. PRP is obtained by taking a sample of the patient's blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and then recombining it with the original blood sample. This platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the affected area to promote faster healing, as it provides the body with an increased number of its own cells. PRP is a mixture of plasma, the liquid part of blood, and platelets, a type of blood cell that plays a crucial role in healing. Platelets have clotting abilities and also contain growth factors that can stimulate cell reproduction, tissue regeneration, and healing in the treated area. PRP is essentially blood with a higher concentration of platelets than usual.
Once PRP is prepared from a patient's blood sample, it is injected into the targeted area. In certain instances, the clinician may use ultrasound to direct the injection. The goal is to raise the level of specific bioproteins or hormones called growth factors in a specific area to accelerate the healing process. Research indicates that the greater concentration of growth factors in PRP may aid or accelerate the healing process, reducing recovery time for injuries, reducing pain, and promoting hair growth.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) injections utilize platelets from your own blood to boost collagen production, cell turnover, and tissue regeneration, resulting in improved skin tone, texture, and appearance. Recently, the benefits of this treatment have been recognized for cosmetic facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
