Hair Restoration In Surrey, BC
If you are displeased with thinning hair or a receding hairline, you are hardly alone — most people experience hair loss during their lifetimes. Fortunately, most people with hair loss can benefit from non-surgical hair restoration. At our practice in Surrey, we use PRP (platelet rich plasma) to regrow new hair and strengthen existing hair so that it can thrive indefinitely.
Our Fraser Valley service areas include Surrey, Langley, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Coquitlam, Port Moody, Port Coquitlam, Pitt Meadows and Mission, BC.
Benefits of PRP for Hair Restoration
- Regrows hair where follicles have gone dormant
- Improves hair texture and thickness
- Increases the total volume of hair in treatment area
- Highly effective, with minimal side effects and downtime
Candidates for Hair Restoration
PRP is appropriate for men and women who wish they had lusher, thicker hair. Our experts have seen up to 30% improvement in patients with most forms of hair loss, including androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness, and female pattern baldness. Because this is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the patient’s own platelets, it is very safe and requires little recovery time.
Some patients use PRP in conjunction with hair transplant to improve their surgical results.
Reasons You May Experience Hair Loss
- Hormonal imbalance (often spurred by menopause, pregnancy)
- Hair damage from external factors such as chemicals, dyes, or hair ties
- Thyroid disease
- Cancer treatments like radiation/chemotherapy
- Medication use
How PRP Therapy Works for Hair Restoration
Your blood is comprised of four main components: liquid, platelets, red cells, and white cells. After drawing your blood, our team runs the blood through a centrifuge to pull out the red and white cells. What remains is plasma with an abundance of platelets. These platelets, best known for helping your blood to clot, have many healing properties. They contain cytokines and growth factors that facilitate cell regeneration. When these platelets are reinjected into your scalp, they can reactivate dormant follicles to help you sprout new hair.
At Plastic Surgery Group at City Centre, we use the WorldPRP™ system that achieves the ideal concentration of platelets (over 4 billion). We reinject your platelets with the V2 Beauty Booster injector, which provides the ultimate precision so that your platelets reach an optimal, consistent depth for a comfortable and successful treatment.
For most patients, we recommend that the treatment be performed three or four times, spaced four to six weeks apart.
PRP Hair Restoration Results
Your hair may start to appear thicker after a couple weeks, but you will need to wait several months to start seeing the full benefits, including regrown hair. Since injected platelets do not last forever, we suggest returning for maintenance treatments two to three times per year so that your results last indefinitely and your existing hair does not continue to fall out.
