PRP Hair Restoration

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for hair are designed for patients in need of specific hair rejuvenation. Made to fit your needs, PRP Hair Restoration uses your body’s plasma—along with a Platelet Separator system—designing the PRP process into three steps for your hair growth.

Who are the Best Candidates for PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP Hair Restoration is customized for each patient. It is beneficial for both men and women who have recently noticed mild-to-moderate forms of balding. After meeting with our in-house specialist, your own plasma will be used to assist with the process. Once the plasma is separated from your blood sample, it will be used on specific areas of your scalp for hair restoration. This procedure is available to men and women 18 years and older. You will likely need a different hair restoration process if you are beyond a Norwood 3 level of hair loss.

What are the Benefits of PRP?

Hair-thinning prevention is one of the main benefits of PRP treatment. PRP is also essential in the reinvigoration of hair follicles, which are the parts of the scalp surrounding the root of your hair that allow the hair growth to start.

Thickening of the hair shaft is another benefit of PRP Hair Restoration, adding a smooth and lush feel to your newly grown hair. Most PRP patients can expect to see hair growth and increased progress of hair restoration within one month.

What Should I Expect on the day of my PRP Hair Restoration?

After meeting with our in-house specialist for a 15-30 minute, one-on-one consultation, there will be a blood-drawing process (lasting no longer than 20 minutes). The blood is then spun to separate the platelet-rich plasma for injection. Finally, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the areas of the scalp that you and the doctor have mapped out.

Hair Restoration Recovery

Each hair restoration patient has their own recovery time, but you should expect the most common side effects—including minor scalp pain—which typically subsides after a few days. At the most, this scalp discomfort side effect should last no longer than three to four weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

The most common side effect is discomfort at the site on the scalp. Patients may also experience swelling around the forehead and eyebrow areas. Remember to follow proper hygiene protocols following the treatment.

This treatment does have the ability to help restore hair growth in some sections of the scalp. It can also reduce the signs of hair thinning in certain portions of your scalp. In addition, PRP Hair Restoration can aid in the overall health of your hair follicles.

While this treatment has many benefits, it cannot completely cure hair loss. It can, however, help to slow hair thinning. If a patient completes 3-4 maintenance treatments within a six-month period, your hair’s health and appearance will exceed your every expectation.
