Hair loss is a major concern for many individuals, whether it is caused by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions or even due to styling practices and/or products. With recent advances in research in the area of hair restoration, new treatments have been created to help combat the issue. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is an advanced nonsurgical remedy that shows remarkable benefits in slowing down, stopping, and reversing hair loss. PRP has produced promising outcomes in patients with alopecia areata. At Artisan 57 Skin & Laser Center in Sioux Falls, SD, we provide this innovative treatment to help restore our patients' confidence in the appearance of their hair. By mixing a powerful solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins, we can help strengthen the function of your hair, leading to longer, thicker, healthier locks.

"The staff there spent time with me discussing my skin to determine the best products and treatment for me. I had many questions, and the staff took their time addressing each one in a way that was understandable and made me feel like my skin was important to them too. I love the products they recommended - and so does my skin! When I went in for my treatment, I had no wait time before I was prepped for my BBL and Dr.Tendler made me feel so at ease! She explained everything she was doing and calmed my nerves. I have been back many times since and I love the results. The staff is so kind and I always leave feeling beautiful and cared for. I can't wait for my next visit!"- A.T. / Google / Mar 18, 2018

"I have had a handful of procedures done at Artisan 57. I love the peels and facials Kennedy performs (See you tomorrow for round #3 ?). Another service was laser hair removal on my upper lip done by Alyssa. I have dark brown hair that continued to grow coarser due to my access of waxing essentials at my previous job. It became a biweekly maintenance! She performed 8 sessions within a 10 month period. Quick and painless.. besides a mile zap which is more shocking than anything ? A pluck here or there is my only concern now. These two girls changed my ways of skin care and I love all the products they have introduced. Alyssa has also been a great addition to the team! Thanks for all you do ladies ?"- H.J. / Facebook / Sep 19, 2017
Any man or woman suffering with hair loss is essentially an ideal candidate for PRP therapy, but those with early hair loss usually yield the best results. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that most often occurs along the top of the head. In women, this could look like a widening part with average hair thickness at the back of the head. Patients with sections of “weak quality” hair growth on the scalp with still-functioning hair follicles usually have the greatest results with PRP hair regrowth treatments.
A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy is a short 90-minute in-office visit. The procedure begins with obtaining a small amount of your blood and placing it in a special machine. It then rotates the sample at high speeds to separate the platelets from the remaining portion of the blood components. Next, a local anesthetic is administered to your scalp and microneedling is done on the scalp to create micro-trauma and micro-channels into the skin. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into regions of your scalp that show hair thinning through small injections. Finally, Our protocol for nonsurgical management of hair loss contains an initial treatment along with maintenance treatments roughly every 2 - 3 months.
What to Expect
There's no downtime following this procedure with almost no limitations or restrictions. Patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild tenderness to the treated areas. These symptoms can last up to 48 hours. While results differ for each patient, cosmetic benefits are usually seen around 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and can continue to appear up to a full year following treatment. As PRP is not a permanent alternative for hair loss, repeat treatments are suggested every 6 - 12 months. It is important to be aware that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in locations where you are already bald. It is used to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.
