PRP hair therapy is a treatment for hair loss which works to stimulate new hair growth. This treatment relies on the white blood cells and platelets in your blood, which are rich in growth factors.
Our doctors begin with a standard blood draw from your arm. The tube of blood is put into a machine called a centrifuge, which spins the blood to separate out the red blood cells from the plasma. This plasma is rich in platelets, and is injected into your scalp every half inch over the area of thinning hair.
PRP hair therapy typically takes less than 30 minutes to complete.
Most patients are able to receive their PRP injections without any numbing, as there is minimal discomfort. If needed, you can use ice packs or Tylenol to relieve discomfort.
As this treatment is minimally invasive, little or no downtime is needed. You will need to go without typical hair maintenance for a couple of days (coloring, processing, blow-drying, etc.), but otherwise can return to your regular activities without delay.
You will likely need several treatments to achieve the best results. PRP treatments are typically performed once a month for three to four months, and then every three to six months after that point depending on the patient’s response and results. You can usually see visible results within two to three months after beginning treatment.
