The aging process affects hair health, growth, and appearance. However, many other factors also contribute to hair loss and poor quality hair, but that doesn’t mean that you need to resign yourself to invasive procedures or harsh medication to address hair loss. At Columbia Laser Skin Center in The Dalles, OR, we offer PRP hair restoration treatments to naturally promote hair growth without downtime or pain.
PRP Hair Restoration
Hair loss can be traced back to many different factors. For some, it’s genetic. For others, it’s a combination of lifestyle, medication side effects, stress, and even hormones. Whatever the case, you don’t have to resort to a surgical procedure or potent oral medication protocol to promote hair growth.
There is an alternative solution that’s natural, effective, and minimally invasive but also delivers some dramatic results. At Columbia Laser Skin Center, we offer PRP hair restoration treatments that use the healing and restorative powers found in your blood to promote healthier, thicker hair.
How It Works
This treatment begins with an initial consultation, during which we will ask you about your hair growth goals and evaluate your areas of concern. Once we confirm your treatment eligibility, we will schedule your appointment. PRP hair restoration appointments begin with a standard blood draw. We will take a sample of your blood and then prepare it in an injectable form by isolating platelet-rich plasma and preparing it into an injectable solution.
Creating Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections
We use a centrifuge, which separates PRP from the remaining contents of the blood. The spinning process takes approximately ten minutes to complete, and the blood sample is then prepared into an injectable form.
During the treatment, after applying a numbing solution to your scalp, we’ll make a series of strategic and small PRP injections into different areas of the scalp. Once injected into the area, the platelet-rich plasma will target and stimulate the dormant hair follicles to help patients experience renewed hair growth and achieve thicker and healthier hair.
After your treatment, you won’t have to plan for downtime or recovery. We will give you detailed instructions regarding injection site care so that you know which products to use and avoid following your treatment to protect the skin on your scalp and enhance your treatment results.
What Kind of Results to Expect
Most patients benefit from a treatment plan that includes four treatments every four weeks. Then, once the desired results have been achieved, maintenance treatments every six months will continue to promote hair growth and overall hair and scalp health. After your treatment, you won’t notice immediate results because it will take time for the growth factors in the PRP injectable to stimulate hair growth.
Hair growth takes time, and patients notice the most visible improvements in their hair health, thickness, and quality within the first several weeks of treatment. Completing the recommended number of treatment sessions is one of the best ways to ensure you achieve the best possible results.
Am I a Candidate?
If you’ve experienced hair loss or thinning hair and aren’t a candidate for surgical hair restoration procedures or don’t want to resort to invasive procedures or harsh medications to address hair loss, you may be the perfect candidate for platelet-rich plasma treatments to restore your hair.
Other Hair Restoration Treatments and Products
Hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma is our primary hair growth treatment. Still, we also offer other hair-perfecting treatments that you can schedule as standalone treatments or schedule alongside your PRP treatments to enhance your results.
We offer HydraFacial Keravive, a unique facial designed specifically for the skin on the scalp to promote improved hair growth, health, and quality. We also offer Nutrafol, an award-winning line of supplements and hair growth products that use powerful, natural ingredients to promote improved hair growth and quality.
HydraFacial Keravive is a version of the popular HydraFacial specifically tailored to promote scalp health. This treatment follows the same three-step protocol definitive of the original HydraFacial, but the treatment focuses instead on promoting scalp health. We will use HydraFacial’s patented vortex technology during the treatment process to address signs of unhealthy hair and hair loss.
The treatment process includes deep cleansing, exfoliation, and hydration. It will cleanse hair follicles, remove dead skin and congestion, increase scalp circulation, and address clogged hair follicles that keep you from experiencing hair growth. This treatment will complement a platelet-rich plasma treatment plan in different ways, and you can schedule it monthly to achieve and maintain the healthiest hair possible.
Nutrafol is a drug-free hair growth supplement and product line that has designed different products for men and women in different life stages experiencing hair loss. Their supplements contain high-quality natural ingredients, and the nutrient-dense vitamins reinforce hair health and promote growth. The supplements are tailored to the needs of men and women with hair loss concerns.
These supplements can help experience renewed hair growth and women looking to achieve healthier hair in any life stage, including the postpartum stage, perimenopause, menopause, and post-menopause. They also have unique hair growth products that enable patients to achieve and maintain healthy hair year-round.
Grow Beautiful, Healthier, Fuller Hair Naturally
