Hair Restoration Q&A

What is hair restoration?

Hair restoration refers to the various treatments available to treat unwanted hair loss from the scalp. El Paso Women’s Clinic uses platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair restoration. PRP is a substance from your own blood that has a high concentration of platelets. 

In addition to stopping injuries from bleeding out, platelets contain specialized proteins and growth factors that initiate the healing process.

For hair restoration, the team at El Paso Women’s Clinic injects the PRP into the areas of your scalp where you have hair thinning. The PRP reactivates the dormant hair follicles, prolonging the hair growing cycle and restoring your hair’s natural fullness. 

Who benefits from hair restoration?

Anyone struggling with noticeable hair loss can benefit from a hair restoration consultation at El Paso Women’s Clinic. You may have hair loss from many causes such as:

  • Female-pattern baldness
  • Menopause
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Telogen effluvium (excessive hair shedding)
  • Medical treatments (chemotherapy)
  • Stress
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Wearing certain hairstyles (braids and buns)

The team conducts a thorough evaluation to fully understand the cause of your hair loss so they can create the most effective treatment plan. They provide PRP for hair restoration to treat all types and causes of hair loss, including female-pattern baldness, menopause, and PCOS. 

What happens during hair restoration?

The El Paso Women’s Clinic team reviews the details of your hair restoration treatment at your consultation. They also provide instructions on how to prepare for your session so you get the best outcomes. 

First, they draw a sample of blood from your arm to make your PRP. Then, they inject the PRP into the balding areas of your scalp. 

The team may recommend a series of injections to get the best results. Your plan may include monthly injections for three months and then follow-up injections every six months. 

When can I expect results from hair restoration?

Hair growth takes time. You may see improvements in your hair thinning within a few months and continued improvements over the next several months*. 

The team at El Paso Women’s Clinic provides post-treatment instructions to maximize healing and hair growth.
