The Benefits Of PRP Hair Restoration After Hair Transplant Surgery

By | Hair Restoration | No Comments

Hair transplant surgery is a great option for patients in the more advanced stages of hair loss. At this point, PRP hair restoration may not provide the results patients desire. But, what about after surgery? Can PRP hair restoration help retain hair after transplant surgery? 

The short answer is: yes! PRP hair restoration can contribute to continued hair retention and growth after hair transplantation. It is best to wait until hair grafts are fully secure and the scalp healed from surgery to begin PRP injection therapies. Due to the previous hair restoration surgery, patients seeking PRP after hair transplant will likely need only a couple touch up treatments per year. Although, this will vary based on the patient and is best determined during a consultation. 

PRP hair restoration works by stimulating collagen production in the scalp. This can maintain the quality of hair follicles as well as repair damaged ones. While hair transplant surgery restores lost hair, it often cannot fully stop hair loss because the causes are usually genetic. Using PRP hair restoration after hair transplant can lead to reduced loss over time and overall slow down the rate of loss.

5 Tips To Prevent Hair Loss

By | Hair Restoration, Platelet Rich Plasma | No Comments

Hair loss happens naturally from age and in our daily lives. Most of the time, new hair regularly replaces shed hair. However, some people experience more hair loss or their genetics dictate larger amounts of hair loss. Regardless of the cause or amount of hair you lose, there are some ways you can minimize and prevent hair loss. 

If your hair loss is unpreventable, or has reached the stage where prevention tactics can only manage hair loss, PRP In Seattle offers many PRP hair restoration methods to help grow new hair.

#1: Eat A Nutritious Diet & Stay Hydrated

Not getting enough nutrients can cause or worsen hair loss. While vitamins and supplements can help, the best way to get all the nutrients your body needs is to eat nutrient rich foods. Additionally, keeping hydrated is known to help your skin and is important to healthy bodily function.

#2: Avoid Over Brushing

Brushing your hair too much can cause hair breakage and extra loss. While it is obviously necessary to brush your hair, do so gently and with a wide toothed comb to minimize trauma to the hair.

#3: Stop Smoking

Smoking causes constriction of the blood vessels which can shrink hair follicles and lead to hair loss. Avoiding or quitting cigarettes can prevent current and future hair loss.

#4: Avoid Constrictive Hairstyles

For people with long hair, tight ponytails or hairstyles can pull on the hair or scalp which can lead to hair loss. Especially if worn consistently, some may begin to see thinning hair near the sites of the most constriction.
