Regrow your hair with the power of platelet-rich plasma.

Hair loss can be traumatic for both men and women at any stage of life. While many hair restoration treatments are available, not all treatments are effective for everyone. Most men and women want to avoid hair transplant surgery because of the expense and inconvenience. Some people do not have enough hair to be a harvest site for transplants, which is where PRP hair restoration is effective.

Who can benefit from PRP injections?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be an effective therapeutic option for anyone experiencing hair loss and can even treat hair loss conditions that have been challenging to treat. Our PRP hair restoration treatment uses substances within the platelet portion of the patient’s blood to stimulate new hair growth and reactivate the dormant hair stem cells. These plasma injections can potentially help the following groups:

  • Both men and women are experiencing hair loss. Male balding and hair thinning are talked about extensively, but women do not often get the same benefit of widespread information. The fact is that women can lose hair, too, because of several different factors.
  • People who are suffering from androgenic alopecia or other forms of alopecia. This is also known as male/female pattern baldness. It is a hereditary condition that affects around 80 million people in the United States alone.
  • People with thinning or balding hair but not completely bald. PRP injections are meant to thicken, strengthen, and grow hair from still functioning follicles. However weak this may seem.

Frequently asked questions about PRP Hair Restoration

During your procedure, blood is drawn from you and prepared by separating and concentrating the platelet portion of the blood sample. Your scalp is then anesthetized with a strong local and topical anesthetic cream, and the platelet rich plasma is injected into the numbed scalp in the areas of thinning and balding.

The platelet-rich plasma that is harvested from your blood is activated and after injection, stimulates the hair follicles to do what they are programmed to do, grow.

For the hair regrowth, the PRP is injected directly into the scalp in a grid pattern over the entire thinning or bald area. Following the injections, platelet rich plasma is applied for a second time topically. Following that application, we use a microneedling device to activate the dormant follicles further. So, the follicles are stimulated from the surface and from underneath, a double whammy.

The microneedling creates thousands of microscopic channels into the skin, allowing the PRP to penetrate by absorption into the dermal layer. The combination of the microneedling with PRP intensifies the skin’s natural healing process, reactivating the hairs dormant stem cells, which results in an even higher concentration of growth stimulation.

Following the procedure, patients can have redness and swelling over the treatment area, which may last for up to several days. Normally the swelling will last three days, and regrowth from each procedure will start usually after about three weeks. However, some patients claim that they noticed changes in the first week.
