Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) For Hair Restoration
Enjoy fuller, natural-looking hair
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an easy and affordable treatment to restore thinning hair and regain your hair density. This proven innovation in Hair Restoration allows your own growth factors and stem cells to work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle restoring fuller, thicker hair. PRP is safe for both men and women with hair loss. With PRP, you can achieve natural-looking results, restoring your confidence.
How It Works
Platelets contain healing growth factors. These growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. Scientific research has lead the field of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing and 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 Regrowth, blood supply to the follicle is increased, as is the hair shaft thickness. PRP triggers and maintains the hair growth phase and controls the hair growth cycle to decrease hair loss. With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair loss, a simple injection of your own platelets into your scalp helps reverse the shrinking of hair follicles and jumpstart your thinning hair back into the regrowth phase.
PRP can also be used for facial rejuvenation as an injectable to deliver smoother, healthier looking skin.
What To Expect
The collection of the PRP usually only takes 10-15 minutes. The actual treatment itself often takes as little as 3-5 minutes.
This quick treatment follows a simple, 3-step process:
Step 1: A collection tube is used to draw your blood which is placed into a centrifuge.
Step 2: After 10 minutes, the platelets are concentrated and drawn into a syringe.
Step 3: With a small needle, the platelets are injected strategically into your scalp in the areas where hair is thinning.
Treatment will vary based on your needs. Initially, you may require several treatments spaced one month apart. After the initial treatment, many patients receive treatments 2-3 times per year to maintain the results of hair growth.

Does the Procedure Hurt?
There may be some minor sensitivity not unlike other injections, but it’s over in 3-5 minutes.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
There is no downtime or long recovery process. You may even take a warm shower the evening of the treatment. Avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.
Is This A Cure For Baldness?
PRP is not a cure for baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). The medical condition remains. However, there is great evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and even increase hair density.
