Hair Loss Treatment
Gone are the days of painful hair loss treatment using hair plugs that take months to heal and take hold. At Cleopatra Rejuvenation Clinic of Renton, WA, we provide minimally invasive baldness treatment for men and women using the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) method. This is a non-surgical procedure, which uses your own stem cells as a hair stimulant. The procedure is so effective it is currently under investigation for other uses, including promoting bone growth for patients with brittle or under-formed bone structure.
The PRP treatment works on the dormant hair follicle to stimulate your hair’s regrowth. Your own blood is drawn and the plasma is separated via centrifuge in our medical lab. The platelets that remain contain very high concentrations of growth factors and stem cells, which are then injected into the scalp at the site of the dormant follicles. The procedure effectively uses your body’s own chemistry to turn the hair follicle back on to begin re-growing your natural hair. Little discomfort is involved from this procedure.
PRP is effective for men and women who have thinning hair due to shrunken or dormant hair follicles. There is no down time from the injections, however, you can expect to experience slight swelling, commonly around the forehead, for a few hours after treatment. Your scalp will be completely numbed during treatments, which last about 90 minutes. Localized treatments are also possible, including eyebrows, eyelashes, and beards.
Due to the rate human hair grows naturally, you can expect to see your first results within 2 months of the initial treatment. At 5–8 months, the difference will be highly noticeable and your hair will continue to regenerate and thicken up to a year after your initial treatment. Your miniaturized hair will come in thick, and you can treat it as you normally would because it is your natural hair.
