Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling embarrassed and helpless. Options like prescription drugs are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects and surgical options can be expensive and do not treat the underlying problems.
If you are experiencing premature hair loss or thinning hair, Grand Pearl Spa can help reverse your symptoms with Vampire Hair Restoration™. Vampire Hair Restoration™ is an innovative, affordable and natural procedure that helps improve your hair density using your body’s own platelet-rich plasma (PRP).
Vampire Hair Restoration™:
- Increases blood supply to the follicle
- Increases shaft size (thickness)
- Triggers and maintains the growth phase
- Controls hair growth cycle
- Decreases hair loss
What Is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)?
Platelet-Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, is a high concentration of your own platelets in a small volume of plasma that contains various healing growth factors. Your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstart dormant hair back into the growth stage.
How Is The PRP Collected?
Step 1: Utilizing a specialized blood collection tube, a practitioner draws a small amount of blood similar to what is required for a basic lab test.
Step 2: The tube is then placed into a centrifuge which spins the blood at a very high speed, causing the platelets to separate from other components of the blood.
Step 3: Once the platelets are concentrated into the plasma they can be applied to the treatment area. Activation causes platelets to release essential growth factors and signaling proteins, which are responsible for the healing process.
What Is a Vampire Hair Restoration™ Procedure Like?
Your Vampire Hair Restoration™ treatment will begin with a preliminary complimentary consultation to determine if you are a candidate for the procedure. If you are an ideal candidate, your first treatment will be scheduled.
You will arrive for your first treatment 45 minutes early for a simple in office blood draw. The procedure itself will take approximately 30 minutes to complete. There is no downtime, although you may experience a mild headache or tenderness in the hairline within the first 24hrs.
For maximum results, patients will receive a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 1 month apart. It is recommended that patients use Ontogeny C. Shampoo, Viviscal Supplements and/or the Theradome in conjunction with Vampire Hair Restoration™.
