As part of our comprehensive, non-surgical hair regrowth and restoration therapy, patients are evaluated to see if they will benefit from this treatment and are advised on the scope of the treatment protocol.
PRP contains special cells called Platelets, that can theoretically cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special Platelet cells promote healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, responds to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate hair follicles into an active growth phase.

Ideal candidates tend to be at the beginning stages of thinning hair and have follicles that are still at least partially active. This, however, doesn’t mean that people with advanced hair loss or inactive follicles are out of luck, the results may just be slower and require more treatments.
Generally, the effects are the best on people with overall weak follicles and those who have small areas of alopecia areata, which is hair loss due to your immune system accidentally attacking your hair follicles.
There is no activity restriction after a PRP treatment. Patients may shower/shampoo/condition their hair normally just several hours after the treatment and resume normal daily and athletic activities.
As mentioned previously, some brief mild inflammation noticeable as redness/pinkness and numbness of the scalp may be present for several hours. No harsh chemical coloring or perming treatments should be performed for at least 72 hours.
Use of topical hair growth treatments like Minoxidil 82M or similar can resume the next day. Laser therapy treatments can also be resumed the next day.
Individual results vary with each patient and nothing is guaranteed. Results can been seen approximately 3 months after your final treatment.
We charge $600 per session, with an average of 3-4 treatments recommended. Please contact us for package pricing.
As with most treatments, consultations give greater in depth knowledge regarding the treatment, to discuss available options, questions surrounding treatment and options to gain the best result possible.
