What is PRP Hair Restoration?
Hair loss is common in men and can have a negative impact on self-esteem, particularly in a career setting. Nonsurgical PRP treatments for hair restoration can help to naturally re-grow your hair with little to no downtime. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the patient’s own blood plasma to strengthen hair follicles.
During treatment, your blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge which will separate the PRP from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the scalp using a small needle. The PRP stimulates stem cells in the hair follicle, accelerating regeneration, resulting in hair growth.
Who is a Candidate?
Men with thinning hair who wish to achieve a thicker, fuller head of hair can often benefit from PRP for hair restoration. A consultation with one of our PRP specialists can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
Following treatment, patients may experience mild redness or discomfort at the treatment site, though this should resolve on its own within a day. There is generally no downtime required, so you can feel free to return to everyday activities as soon as you feel comfortable. Most patients need a series of 4-6 treatments to achieve optimal results.
