What is it?
Hair Restoration using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a therapy that relies on platelet-rich plasma from your blood to stimulate hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that contains growth factors that can trigger new cell development within the tissues. PRP has been used throughout the medical community for decades, and now the power of growth factors has been harnessed for hair restoration for men and women.
Who is a good candidate?
Anyone experiencing any form of hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP injections. Please call for a complimentary consultation to help you decide if this procedure is right for you.
What are the benefits?
The primary benefit is hair growth, but also keep in mind that the procedure is:
Non-surgical and there are no scars
Natural hair growth pattern
How does it work?
Our licensed medical practitioner will use a PRP Kit to draw the patient’s blood and spin their blood in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the platelet rich plasma. Next the clinician will inject the highly concentrated platelets into the patient's hair follicles and hair roots. A person’s hair follicles and hair roots need to be healthy to achieve optimal hair growth. Using the patient’s own blood plasma increases the blood circulation to the hair follicles helping the growth of new healthy hair.Platelets contain many healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
What should I expect before and after?
There is no downtime or a long recovery process. We recommend that you avoid the use of any hair dye or other salon or chemical treatments for 2 to 3 days after the procedure is performed. You will start to notice results in about 4 to 8 months after your PRP hair regrowth program. This follows the normal hair growth cycle. With six to twelve months most patients will see improvement in volume and quality of their hair growth.
