Hair loss treatments at Cascade Medical Spa.
At Cascade, we researched recent hair restoration technology in great detail because we genuinely want to optimize our patients results. At the end of the day, we decided to use PRP (platelet rich plasma) to effectively restore hair growth at the base of hair follicles cellular level. We also decided to take a full 360 degree approach for restoring hair. With this new approach, we are happy to say that our customers are getting awesome results with nearly a %100 satisfaction rate.
We do not publicly share all the details of our hair restoration methods and we do not recommend treatments to everyone. Because of this, we often recommend a free in person consultation with our PRP hair restoration specialists. Although most of our customers say we have great pricing, we still understand this is a financial expense. We do not want you to move forward with treatments unless we feel you can achieve results. Your hair growth is our ultimate concern.
Hair loss can be caused by a number of underlying factors. Many of these will be discussed with you during your free in person consultation. Consultations normally take about 30 minutes and our providers will give you the information you need to determine what is going to be best for you.
“After some research, I read about PRP for hair growth and thought I would give it a try. I wasn’t expecting any major difference (after all, hair thinning at my age and beyond is fairly normal), I was really just looking to be less self conscious about it.”
Well, it worked! Amanda at Cascade was great and the place was stylish but professional. But the best part was the result for sure. It took a few months (like 5) and a series of 4 treatments, but I really feel like I’m back to where I was before my hair was so thin. My hairdresser noticed it before I did but I could definitely tell about a month after she saw it. My hair is back to normal!” Kim P. Aug, 2018 after 3 treatments

Here are some recent before and after photos after a series of 4 PRP treatments here at Cascade. Keep in mind, most growth comes 6 months after the last treatment. We are happy that this lovely lady allowed us to share her photos with you just after she finished her last treatment. 12.18.18

How does PRP help for hair loss?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a simple process of injecting your own platelet rich plasma into the vascular layer of your scalp to help stimulate hair follicles at the cellular level.
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply to thicken and regrow hair. Utilizing your own Platelet Rich Plasma for your hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jump starting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
COLLECT BLOOD FROM PATIENT
1 vial of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm.
SEPERATE THE PLATELETS
A centrifuge is then used to separate plasma and platelets from the red blood cells.
EXTRACT PLATELETS RICH PLASMA
We extract the Platelet Rich Plasma, mix with special Eclipse vitamin serum and proceed with injections.
Do PRP hair loss treatments hurt?
Although there may be some sensitivity, our providers can minimize the discomfort and will cater to each patients needs individually. Most people compare the treatment to their hair gently being pulled but it is not very intense.
“Amanda was very professional, knowledgeable and reassuring. She went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable with the procedure and had some nifty tricks to reduce the pain. I hardly felt the needles. I had no bruising after and I’m already seeing positive results. I will be going back to Cascade for the same and other procedures” Google Review – July 2018
How long before I see results from PRP treatments?
Results can vary from person to person and the underlying factors that have contributed to your hair loss. Many of our customers can see positive results after 2 or 3 treatments. Your results are our ultimate goal!

Will PRP hair treatments work for me?
Our providers at Cascade do not recommend PRP hair restoration treatments to everyone. A proper diagnosis is required to determine if PRP will be best for you during your free 30 minute consultation. If our providers don’t believe you will get good results, then we will not recommend a treatment plan. We take a very honest and straight forward approach with our customers.
