Hair Therapy Q & A
What is hair therapy?
Hair loss is a natural part of the aging process. By age 35, about two-thirds of men have some hair loss. Women can experience balding and hair loss, too. But hair loss isn’t inevitable. Treatment can often reverse this process.
At Dr. Rogers Centers, you can access PRP hair therapy. This state-of-the-art treatment uses growth factors in your blood. PRP encourages blood flow to your scalp and stimulates new hair growth.
Is hair therapy with PRP right for me?
During your consultation, you meet with a qualified physician. Your provider examines your scalp and considers your medical history. Many health conditions can trigger hair loss. Before starting PRP, your provider may perform several tests to rule out common health concerns.
The ideal candidate for PRP hair therapy has:
- Male pattern baldness
- Female pattern baldness
- Fine/reduced hairs of the eyebrows
- Metabolic conditions that led to hair loss
If you’re a good candidate for hair therapy, your provider develops a customized treatment plan. Your treatment plan is tailored to meet your needs and provide optimal results.
How does PRP hair therapy work?
During each treatment, your provider draws a small amount of blood from your arm. Next, they isolate the growth factors in your blood sample by spinning your blood in a centrifuge. This process takes about 10 minutes.
Your provider then sanitizes your scalp, then they inject the growth factors into your scalp. ProNox is available to help with any discomfort. Dr. Rogers will also prescribe a proprietary hair growth formula designed specifically for you.
Finally, your provider uses a carboxy device on your scalp. This formula helps to stimulate blood flow and maximizes hair growth. Soon, your body’s natural healing process starts regenerating your hair follicles.
What results can I expect?
PRP treatments work with your body to deliver natural results. There are no harsh side effects and no known health risks. With hair therapy, your body regenerates itself.
But it may take some time for your body to grow new hair follicles. Dr. Rogers Centers generally recommends a package of five treatments to see optimal results. Most patients experience dramatic improvement within 3-5 months, but your results may vary.
If your hair loss is linked to a hormone imbalance, you may need additional care. The Dr. Rogers Centers team provides hormone therapy and other follow-up treatments. These treatments help reverse your hair loss and improve your quality of life.
