PLATLET RICH PLASMA
FOR HAIR RESTORATION
PRP is an FDA-approved, non-surgical treatment to reduce and reverse hair loss for men and women over a series of sessions.
How does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) work?
Before the treatment begins, our medical professional draws a small sample of the patient’s blood.
The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to create a product that is "liquid gold", rich in plasma and platelets, known as platelet rich plasma (PRP). This PRP, contains concentrated amounts of growth factors and other elements that promote and support tissue regeneration, can be applied where it is needed by injection.
PRP has many applications in medicine and has been used for years to support the body’s healing process. PRP is used in aesthetic medicine to stimulate the production of collagen and new tissue growth within the hair follicles.
Is PRP right for me?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment for Hair Loss provides an alternative to stimulate natural hair growth for patients who are not viable candidates for hair transplant surgery.
For men and women who are looking to do something about their hair loss and thinning hair, PRP therapy may be an appropriate treatment option. It is also important to remember that results do vary from one patient to another. PRP therapy is a non-surgical option that may be able to help if you are experiencing thinning hair and looking to improve the thickness of your existing hair.
Hair conditions that can be treated with PRP:
Alopecia (male and female pattern baldness): Alopecia is a hereditary and androgen-dependent progressive thinning of the scalp hair in a defined pattern. It is a common disorder, affecting women as well as men.
Alopecia areata: Spotty areas of baldness or thinning hair, typically the size of a coin.
Hypotrichosis: Hypotrichosis is fine or reduced hairs of the eyebrows or beard as we age.
Trichotillomania: Compulsive hair pulling, resulting in thinning or loss of hair on scalp or eyebrows. PRP may strengthen and stimulate the growth of new hair, but will not cure compulsive pulling.
When will I see results?
If PRP hair loss therapy is appropriate, we can begin your treatment at the time of your consultation. We will administer the next two treatments at 6-week intervals. You will be asked to return 3 months later. At this visit (6 months from your first treatment) your response will be assessed. If you show improvement, follow-up treatments will be given twice yearly depending upon your progress.
