Put Down the Clippers and Get Back to Enjoying The Vibrant Richmond Atmosphere

When struggling with hair loss, it’s easy to reach the point of frustration where you are ready just to shave it all. While some people love having a shaved head, and there’s nothing wrong with that it can reduce the ability to express yourself through your hair. Richmond is an area where there’s so much expression from the eclectic mix of housing, from the converted warehouses to the terrace houses from the Victorian-era all expressing themselves using their differences, just as you can by seeing Aesthetic Studio Clinic about hair loss regrowth treatment.

Hair Regeneration Treatment Using Something You Already Have

A modern way to approach hair loss treatment uses platelets found in your blood, in fact, the procedure uses a small amount of your own blood. Platelets play the role of essentially promoting clotting and healing, as well as synthesizing and releasing growth factors. What this treatment does is using state of the art equipment separate compounds from your blood that results in a solution with a very high platelet count that can be injected into the scalp. The procedure is typically performed using tiny needles and precision injections into the scalp.

While you’ve likely seen all kinds of miracle solutions to hair loss over the years especially on late night TV infomercials, this isn’t a miracle overnight fix it does take some time, but it can produce awe-inspiring results thanks to the treatment taking advantage of the human body’s already miraculous ways of dealing with issues and managing itself.

The Benefit of Using a Treatment Using Self Sourced Compounds

Interestingly because this injectable is sourced from your own blood, it is free from transmittable diseases, provided it is handled correctly and in a sterile environment, and doesn’t cause allergic reactions or hypersensitivity. Some people are prone to being very sensitive to cosmetic treatments, we all know someone that seems to be allergic or have reactions to just about any product they try. However, when you are mostly just refining something from the patient’s own body to selectively re-integrate into the body in a particular area you aren’t introducing anything foreign so is very unlikely to cause any issues in this regard.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Work?

Using the properties of platelets, just amplified by increasing the concentration in the created injectable solution. The amount of platelets in the solution after it has been processed and prepared is around 10x the concentration found in your blood commonly. The use of platelet rich plasma has been clinically proven to provide benefits at these levels of concentration. When high the solution is injected into the scalp it assists in delivering a high amount of growth factors to the area, far more than would typically be produced in that region due to the increased amount of platelets now present. This treatment can result in impressive results when it comes to thinning hair treatment, and many other forms of hair loss treatment.

How is Platelet Rich Plasma Prepared?

As previously mentioned it is prepared using the patient’s own blood, but don’t worry the amount required is generally very small on average only 50ml will need to be extracted so will be a similar experience having this drawn as to when you receive a blood test. The required amount will vary, but this gives you an idea, there’s no need to be concerned about crazy amounts being taken.

After the blood has been retrieved from the patient the next part of the process is to separate the platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood, this can be achieved by placing the blood into a centrifuge inside suitable vials which spins them. Due to the differing weight of blood components, many of the elements such as the red blood cells drop to the bottom of the solution in the vial leaving the desired plasma that is rich in platelets at the top to be collected using a syringe.

Just before the injection proceeds, calcium chloride is mixed with the extracted solution, activating what is called the clotting cascade which stimulates the platelets in a way that causes them to secrete growth factors when introduced via injection into the treatment area.
