Raleigh, NC, October 15, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Jernigan's Hair Replacement Clinic has been offering Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy, as recently seen on Good Morning America, since December 2014. PRP hair growth therapy is an exciting therapeutic option for men and women who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions and are uninterested in surgical or drug therapies.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a non-invasive hair growth technique that targets androgenetic alopecia – the hereditary, thinning of hair, affecting both men and women. PRP has also proven to be effective in women in treating some cases of hair loss caused by traction alopecia.
Blood is drawn in the office as though you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician’s office. The blood is spun in a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white cells. After centrifugation, the platelets and the growth factors separate in the tube, collected and, under a local anesthesia, are injected into the scalp where the hair is thinning.
Although PRP for hair loss has yet to be approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, as it has not yet been reviewed, it has been used effectively and safely for years in other medical fields such as Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Cosmetic Surgery, Oral Surgery and Neurosurgery and shows promising results in the fight against hair loss. Articles published in various scientific journals including the British Journal of Dermatology and Dermatologic Surgery; indicate promising results in the fight against hair loss as well.
Jernigan’s Hair Loss Clinic was the first hair loss clinic to open in North Carolina by founder Bill Jernigan. Jernigan’s is still a family owned & operated business and has been providing non-surgical and surgical hair restoration solutions for men and women since 1970. We offer free qualifying consultations since PRP does not work for all types of hair loss.
