SkinPen with PRP for Hair Loss
SkinPen Microneedling combined with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an ideal therapy for men and women with receding hairlines, thinning hair, widening of the hair path and male pattern baldness. Microneedling & PRP are much more effective TOGETHER than each alone - It's a no-brainer!
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm, spinning it down and separating the white and red blood cells, which isolates the growth factor and bio-active protein rich portion of your plasma. The plasma is then used as a mask, or injected directly into the scalp. This procedure enhances blood flow and stimulates inactive hair follicles of the scalp to encourage new hair growth, and improve the health and texture of existing hair.
A minimum of 1-2 vials per session required for PRP Treatment.
What is SkinPen Microneedling?
SkinPen® Precision sets the gold standard in microneedling and is the first FDA approved medical grade microneedling device with precise and safe needle depth adjustment. The SkinPen precision needle cartridge used is a sterile, one time use cartridge. The needles puncture the skin and create micro channels which allow the body to produce collagen and stimulate hair regrowth.
What to expect
The entire treatment including the preparation of your PRP in the office, cleansing the treatment area, performing SkinPen Microneedling procedure and injecting PRP into the scalp takes approximately an hour and a half for most clients.
For clients with thinning hair, we recommend a series of four treatments, performed one month a part for best results. You will need maintenance treatments every 6-12 months thereafter to maintain the results of your PRP Hair Regeneration Treatment. You may be prescribed topical or oral medications to augment your hair growth.
You will notice improvement in hair texture, thickness in the hair shaft and regrowth of hair within 6 weeks. It typically takes 3-6 months from your initial treatment to see measurable results.
Scalp Micropigmentation (commonly known as SMP) is the #1 most natural solution to restore advanced hair loss, complete baldness, and eliminate the appearance of scars.
The SMP process is completed by using a micropigmentation machine with carbon based pigment to implant thousands of micro sized needle impressions onto the scalp, replicating the exact appearance of shaved hair (stubble or follicles). This process typically takes 3 sessions to complete, during which time a new custom hairline (natural receding, round, barber style edge up etc.) is made and density is built up on the scalp. The first session the impressions are spaced about quarter an inch apart. The second session (7-10 days later) more impressions are made in between the previous ones. The third session (2-3 weeks later) more impressions are made in between to tighten up the micropigmentation spacing giving it a full dense look. Using this technique of building the density over three sessions results in the natural realistic look of a full head of shaved hair. When blending into the actual real hair the impressions are broken up and faded out to create a perfectly seamless blend all over
the scalp. This can also be used to fully treat Alopecia Areata as well as Alopecia Totalis.
Scalp Micropigmentation is virtually maintenance free! It can last up to 5 years from your initial session, but as it naturally fades a touch-up is recommended to balance it out and bring it back to that freshly shaved look, approximately every one to two years.
