PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma
Watch Our PRP for Hair Loss Video!

We are proud to be the first practice in the area to offer minimally invasive Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Loss.  This treatment utilizes your own blood platelets to boost hair thickness, growth and to “reactivate” hair follicles in thinning areas.

Platelets are the blood cells that promote clotting – but they are also integral to the healing process as they release an array of growth factors when activated by a trauma. These growth factors then set to work on healing and tissue regeneration. The idea behind PRP Therapy is to harness that restorative power and concentrate it to specific areas of concern – like a scalp with underperforming hair follicles.

To create Platelet Rich Plasma, a small blood sample is drawn from the patient and then spun in a centrifuge to maximize the concentration of platelets in the final substance.  Once the scalp is numbed, the PRP is injected into the scalp to stimulate the hair follicles.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss is equally effective in both men and women. Patients may notice improved hair thickness, texture and some new growth after two weeks with the most noticeable results appearing at the three-to-six-month mark. Best results are achieved when treatments are performed regularly, every three to four months.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss requires no downtime with most patients experiencing mild swelling and tenderness lasting only 3-5 days.
