PLATELET RICH PLASMA FOR HAIR REGROWTH

  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.


  • When patients come in for their first treatment, their blood is drawn and the PRP is centrifuged to process out the PRP from the red blood cells. The scalp is numbed to minimize any discomfort.
  • The treatment process involves a series of PRP injections combined with the PRP solution being microneeded into the scalp. The area may be sensitive and red for 1-3 days.
  • Post-treatment, all patients are prescribed a Hair Fortifying Rx homecare solution to apply once or twice daily to the treatment area to help further stimulate hair growth and enhance results.
  • Most patients receive four initial treatments spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments every four to six months to retain results. While outcomes vary, most patients will start to see results after three months and will continue to see improvements over time.

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.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PRP?

 

 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.

IS THERE A RECOVERY PERIOD FOR PRP?

 

 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. 

WHAT SORT OF RESULTS SHOULD I EXPECT

  Individual results vary with each patient and nothing is guaranteed. Results can been seen approximately 3 months after your final treatment.  

WHAT IS THE COST OF THE TREATMENT?

 We charge $700 per session, with an average  of 3-4 treatments recommended.  Please contact us for package pricing.
