Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Hurt?

Are you looking for an effective solution for your hair loss? PRP Therapy may regrow it for you. PRP Therapy is an emerging remedy for hair loss, but some patients are apprehensive about it since it involves a series of injections. Because of this, one of the questions doctors often get asked about the procedure is – Does PRP therapy for hair loss hurt.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
PRP Therapy for hair loss is a non-surgical hair regeneration system based on wound healing technology that utilizes platelet rich plasma. Data obtained from studies carried out using PRP for hair loss, indicate that the growth factors released by the platelets help to stimulate the stem cells in the hair follicle, resulting in hair growth. However, individual results may vary with each patient.

How it works
Blood is first drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge, to separate the platelets and plasma. The plasma is then injected into the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred.

It typically takes about 3 PRP treatments to see results.

Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Hurt?
PRP Therapy for hair loss is a safe, comfortable treatment that is not painful. Local anesthesia or numbing creamis applied to the scalp at the start of treatment, so the area is completely numbby the time the PRP injections are made. As a result, patients don’t usually feel any discomfort during treatment.

Double Chin

How Long Does Kybella Last?

Are you struggling to get rid of your double chin, but you’re not interested in surgery? Kybella may be the non-surgical fix you’re looking for. Kybella (deoxycholic acid) is a non-surgical treatment for submental fullness that requires no anesthesia, leaves no scars, and is virtually painless. But how long does Kybella last.

Whether the fat below your chin is due to genetics or weight gain, Kybella can get rid of your double chin, and improve your chin’s profile.

How Kybella works
Kybella is a simple injectable treatment that is derived from deoxycholic acid. Deoxycholic acid is a natural substance found within the body that assists with the breakdown and absorption of dietary fat.

Small amounts of Kybella are administered through a series of injections. When Kybella is injected into the double chin it breaks apart the membrane of the fat cells, causing the cells to rupture. The fat deposits are then naturally removed by the body.

How long does Kybella Last?
Results from Kybella injections can be seen within 4-6 weeks of treatment, and can last for many years. The good thing about Kybella is that the fat cells that are treated won’t come back, because the body does not regenerate fat cells. As a result, even if patients gain weight in the future the weight gain will not be in the area where the fat cells were treated, so there should not be any significant weight gain below the chin.
