PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment
WHAT IS PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR RESTORATION?
Micro-needling & PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an exciting non-surgical hair loss treatment that preserves and thickens hair for patients experiencing hair loss or thinning.
HOW IS PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR RESTORATION PERFORMED?
A small amount of blood is drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to extract the PRP from the rest of the blood. This high concentration of growth factors is utilized pre, during, and post-procedure. The PRP mixture is applied to bald and thinning areas of the scalp followed by a micro-needling treatment. The process takes approximately one-hour in-office with minimal discomfort and little to no downtime. PRP treatments are considered completely safe and natural as you are using growth factors from your own body so there is no chance of blood infection or an adverse immune response.
HOW MANY TREATMENTS ARE RECOMMENDED?
Because PRP therapy works well to stimulate inactive or newly implanted follicles with little to no downtime, it has become a popular treatment to restore follicular health and improve hair thinning. Most patients require 2-3 treatments, spaced 4-8 weeks apart with occasionally touch-ups every 6-12 months. Micro-needling with PRP is especially helpful for those who do not tolerate finasteride (Propecia).
