Good Candidates for PRP Hair Restoration
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Treatment Work?
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration is a hair loss treatment that utilizes your body’s own plasma to promote new hair growth. Within our blood, there is plasma. Within the plasma are platelets. And within those platelets are growth factors, which grow cells and repair tissue. Over a series of treatments administered via PRP hair injections, these growth factors can help men and women who have certain hair conditions — especially androgenetic alopecia — to restore hair growth. We are happy to offer hair restoration at Kare Chiropractic St Peters, MO.
What Is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections are a nonsurgical and minimally invasive procedure that reduces the shrinking of your hair follicles and stimulates and nourishes your hair follicles, restoring your natural hair growth process.
PRP contains growth factors, stem cells, and natural proteins that help improve your existing hair’s health and density.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections have been found to speed up the healing process of torn ligaments, tendons, muscular joints, and hair loss. The injection of PRP into patients activates the body’s natural healing processes to treat musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.
Our team of professionals at Kare Chiropractic can provide the best hair loss treatment in St.Peters, MO.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the patient’s blood by centrifuging one or more tubes of blood to concentrate the platelets for injection. Injecting the activated platelets into the affected area is the next step. Growth factors are produced, encouraging the body to make more repair cells.
After about four months, you should notice hair growth after PRP therapy. Though, up to a year after the treatment, you should still be experiencing improvements. A yearly or so treatment schedule may be necessary for upkeep.
Eighty-four percent of studies revealed a beneficial effect of PRP, and 50% demonstrated a statistically significant improvement, while 34% showed hair density and hair thickness improvement.
PRP Hair Retoration Recovery
PRP hair injections allow you to return to your regular daily activities directly after your appointment. However, some patients do experience soreness, swelling, itching, or pinpoint bleeding at the injection sites. These side effects will subside quickly.
