Platelet-Rich Plasma for Treating Hair Loss- By Charela Lee (Marketing Director for Arocha Hair Restoration)

At Arocha Hair Restoration we are here to help you conquer your hair loss concerns. One way we can help you achieve your hair loss goals is through a revolutionary procedure gaining popularity that utilizes a patient’s own blood to rejuvenate thinning hair. It applies the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the scalp. Plasma contains platelets that are rich in growth factors that stimulate stem cells to promote a natural process of wound healing, resulting in repair and regeneration of cells. Often thinning can be reversed, yielding a restoration of the patient ‘s hair fullness.

In the past, treatment options for hair loss only included magical topical treatments, prescription medications and surgical procedures. With PRP, the patient’s blood is drawn directly into a special blood collection tube similar to that used for laboratory tests. The tube of blood is then placed into a centrifuge to allow separation of the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. A topical anesthetic is applied and multiple channels are created into the scalp during a process called micro-needling. Immediately after the micro-needling, the patient’s plasma is injected into the scalp. The created micro-channels allow the absorption of the PRP into the scalp.

PRP to the scalp for hair loss has show to be well tolerated in patients. A mild “sunburn” feel can be expected following the procedure. There may also be minor pinpoint bleeding during the procedure, prior to the PRP application. It is recommended that patients not take any Anti-inflammatory medication since they may interfere with the natural healing process stimulated by the PRP.

PRP can generate new hair growth and enhance hair transplant results for thicker, healthier hair growth. Unfortunately, for patients with absence of hair follicles, PRP will not likely stimulate new hair growth. Healthy hair follicles need to be present. Multiple treatments may be needed before results are seen.

There are various genetic and environmental factors that can cause hair loss. Environmental factors may include chemotherapy, diet, nutrition, stress, hormonal shifts, autoimmune disorders and various illnesses due to imbalances. The best way to determine what is causing your hair loss is to meet with a medical professional that specializes in hair loss evaluation and treatment.

    I had interviewed several hair transplant companies about hair restoration in texas and I felt comfortable the moment I walked into Dr. Arocha office. The staff was very friendly and professional, the consultant’s was extremely knowledgeable, made me feel confident about the procedure and was great with checking in on me afterwards.
    No egos. Arocha staff made me comfortable.

    I first met Dr. Arocha in May this year 2014 when he opened a 3rd office in Austin Tx. I was taken back how nice and professional and detailed he was. Him and his staff talked with me for over an hour about my different options. And yes it was a free consultation.

    During the pre-op,2 days ago 11-19-14. Dr. Arocha answered all of my questions and thoroughly explained the procedure. He was patient and knowledgeable.

    I felt great about everything and my first transplant was 2,000 grafts. Same atmosphere at his surgery center as his consultation office. Very polite and professional. I thought 6 hours would be long but it wasn’t. They even bought me lunch and today when we did a follow up visit ( no charge) he bought me lunch again. We discussed my goals for a second surgery in 9 months and I’m excited for the future.

    BTW Dr. Arocha is one of the top 5 hair transplant surgeons in the country.
    It is worth your time to go and meet Dr. Arocha. And the consultation is FREE!
