PRP Hair Restoration

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP® Hair Restoration is a non-surgical, safe and effective hair loss treatment that prevents hair loss and promotes healthy hair growth. The goal of the treatment is to help you achieve thicker, lusher, and more voluminous hair. PRP for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.

Who Is A Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections help thicken thinning hair and is an excellent alternative to hair transplant. People can expect to see thick, natural-looking hair in approximately six months. PRP hair therapy is ideal for people:

  • With male or female pattern baldness with a regular or average amount of platelets in their blood and who still have some hair, although it is thinning
  • Looking to prevent hair loss and promote new hair growth
  • With generally healthy skin on the scalp
  • Who are in good health overall
  • Who are Non-smokers
  • With realistic expectations

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

PRP hair therapy is a three-step medical treatment that requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are required every 4–6 months.

Step 1

Our medical professional will draw your blood from your arm and put it into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).

Step 2

After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:

  • platelet-poor plasma
  • platelet-rich plasma
  • red blood cells

Step 3

The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that require increased hair growth.

Common Questions

Your medical provider will determine during your consultation, whether you are a right candidate for PRP. They will conduct a comprehensive review of your medical history and current symptoms.

The treatment can take anywhere between 60 minutes to 90 minutes, depending on the number of areas being treated.

A PRP treatment stimulates a healing response and might initially cause inflammation and discomfort.

You will be advised to avoid anti-inflammatory medications for at least six weeks after the treatment, to avoid interference with the natural healing process.

Although there is a very small risk of clotting, PRP injections are deemed to be safe, and most patients undergo these procedures with no complications.
