Hair restoration is a treatment that may be able to counteract your baldness or the thinning of your hair. While there are many possible causes of hair loss, some people aren’t aware that there are also treatment options that can encourage natural hair growth, so you don’t have to cover up with a cap or wig or embrace baldness.
At Adara Medical Spa, the team provides hair restoration treatments using injections of a substance called platelet-rich plasma (PRP). PRP is a liquid that has the same base as your blood, which is a fluid called plasma. In addition to blood plasma, PRP also includes a high concentration of platelets from your blood.
PRP is full of growth factors that help your cells communicate and heal damage. This includes damaged hair follicles which are no longer growing hair. For many people with hair loss, PRP injections encourage healthy hair growth to start up again.

This is far from a comprehensive list of all types of hair loss. Since results are hard to predict from PRP hair restoration, you should visit Adara Medical Spa for a consultation if you have any form of mild to moderate hair loss.
The results of PRP injections in the scalp may take some time to appear, and you may need multiple treatments initially and then regular sessions over time to maintain the results. Typically, the results of a round of injections last for up to a year.
Three to four months after your first session of injections, you should come in for a follow-up visit at Adara Medical Spa. After that, you’ll only need to visit about once a year for touch-up hair restoration treatments.
PRP injections are not a cure for hair loss, but if you keep up on their maintenance, you can enjoy long-term results from your treatments.
