Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss – A New Non-Surgical Solution For Hair Restoration
Hair loss is a common problem that can leave you feeling self-conscious. It is estimated to affect 50% of men and 30% of women over age 50. Genetics, stress, and illness can contribute to hair loss and thinning of hair can significantly affect self-esteem. The daily application of topical creams sometimes slows the process and, for men, oral Propecia (finasteride) might help. I am pleased to offer a NEW treatment that shows real promise in promoting thicker, fuller hair after only a few monthly treatments. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) extracted from your own blood is placed directly into the hair follicles to stimulate hair growth. It works by stimulating inactive scalp hair follicles. Your blood contains platelets, which are cells that stop bleeding. Platelets also contain growth factors that accelerate tissue regeneration and healing. These growth factors can help slow hair loss and regrow hair. After only 3 monthly treatments patients experience thicker hair that continues to improve over 6 months1,2.
Dr. Copeland’s PRP protocol includes using Rewind Revitalizing Shampoo and Conditioner to address hair loss and thin hair. Dr. Copeland’s hair products are formulated without harsh ingredients like dyes, parabens, silicone, and acrylites giving you a healthier and safer alternative. They are perfume free, allergy tested and color safe. Within a few weeks, hair is healthier looking and has more volume.
