PRP Hair Restoration

Platelet Rich Plasma for hair restoration increases blood supply to the follicle and increase the thickness of the hair shafts. PRP also triggers and maintains the growth phase and controls your hair growth cycle not to mention slowing the progress of hair loss. Our own blood plasma contains “platelets”, which carry many powerful proteins and enzymes known as “growth factors".

In the last few years, PRP therapy has emerged as an intriguing preventative treatment for hair loss, suitable for both men and women. By separating your own blood (as described above) and injecting the new Platelet-Rich-Plasma sample into your scalp, it is believed that any stem cells around your targeted hair follicles are kickstarted into action. The result is that new hair growth can be promoted, even with follicles that had previously been inactive.

PRP therapy can also be used in conjunction with all hair loss medications (talk to your Doctor or our Doctor about which medication might be best for you). You can also use it to complement any hair transplant procedures, the injections working to stimulate the newly planted follicles in your scalp.

As with all hair loss treatments, results vary from patient to patient, but PRP therapy has shown to improve hair caliber and hair thickness. For optimal results we recommend that you you start with four treatments (one every month) followed by 1-2 maintenance treatments per year.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a newer non-surgical approach for hair restoration that involves injections done with our V2 injector of your own concentrated blood to stimulate hair growth. Your blood is collected into specially formulated vials and then spun in a centrifuge separating the blood into various layers. A specific layer called Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is isolated from the rest of the blood. This Platelet Rich Plasma is then injected back into your scalp and/or beard to the area(s) of concern.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What Are The Risks And Benefits Of PRP Treatments?

PRP is a fairly comfortable, non-surgical procedure that takes approximately an hour. Most patients notice a brief period of inflammation during which their scalp remains somewhat pink and numb for a few hours. Swelling is rare (about 15% of the time) and if it occurs is noticeable in the forehead or around the eye area on the next day. Any swelling takes about a day or two to resolve. Hair growth improvements can typically be measured in about three months, but it takes six to twelve months to visually “see” the difference in photos and in the mirror. Patients with certain blood disorders or on certain medications may not be candidates for PRP treatments. PRP is immunologically neutral and poses little risk of allergy, hypersensitivity or foreign-body reactions.

What Is The PRP Treatment Schedule Like?

Experts suggest that 4 treatments are needed, spaced 4 weeks apart for each treatment. Once you've had your first series of treatments, you should plan to have PRP once or twice a year for maintenance.

Is There A Recovery Period Or Downtime After PRP Treatments?

There is no activity restriction after a PRP treatment. Patients may shower/shampoo/condition their hair several hours after the treatment and resume normal daily and athletic activities. 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 or similar can resume the next day. Laser therapy treatments can also be resumed the next day.
