During the holiday season, you’re probably spending more time with the people in your life. From family gatherings to work parties, it’s a social time of year. You want to look your best this Thanksgiving and beyond.
If you’re dealing with thinning hair, that might feel challenging. Fortunately, you don’t have to undergo a surgical procedure to reverse your hair loss. A nonsurgical, natural solution could help you enjoy fuller hair before you ring in the new year.
It’s called platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) hair restoration and Elaine Phuah, DO, MBA, FACOI, offers it right here at Hanami Medspa in Fort Worth, Texas. With this new and exciting treatment, you could have something extra to be thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Why platelets? Because they have a powerful healing capacity. When you get hurt — say you get cut, for example — your body directs platelets to the area to help your blood clot. But that’s not all. Those platelets also contain growth factors, which help your body do regenerative work.
Because you already have platelets naturally circulating in your bloodstream, Dr. Phuah can create the PRF from your own blood.
By taking a small sample of your blood and isolating the platelet-rich fibrin, Dr. Phuah has a way of delivering extra healing capacity directly into your hair follicles. When injected into your scalp, this solution helps to stimulate new hair growth.
PRF hair restoration can help men and women with mild to moderate hair loss.
Talk with Dr. Phuah about your hair goals. She can customize a plan for you, which might combine PRF treatment with other hair restoration treatments like medication, low-level laser therapy, or Keravive treatments.
Most people see results with 3-6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. You might also choose to get twice-yearly treatments to maintain your new hair.
Generally, patients notice an immediate reduction in hair loss. Within a few months, you should see noticeable new hair growth.
You might sometimes experience a little bit of shedding right after treatment as the PRF works in your hair follicles.
If you would love to be thankful for a thicker head of hair, talk to Dr. Phuah about PRF hair restoration this Thanksgiving season. Because she derives the PRF from your blood, it gives you a safe way to move toward your hair goals. And it gives you a fuller head of hair without needing a surgical procedure.
