What is PRP THerapy for Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a significant concern for many women and men, whether it's brought on by genetics, age, hormones, medical conditions, or years of over-styling. With recent advancements in hair restoration, doctors have created new treatments to fight hair loss. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an innovative nonsurgical treatment that has shown remarkable results in slowing down, stopping, and even reversing baldness. Additionally, PRP has helped patients who suffer from alopecia areata or thinning eyebrows. By extracting growth factors and bioactive proteins from your blood, we can strengthen your hair, resulting in longer, thicker, healthier locks.

Ideal Candidates

Any person with hair loss can be a good candidate for PRP therapy, but those with early hair loss typically achieve the best results. PRP works best for those with androgenic alopecia, which is an inherited type of hair loss that commonly occurs on the top part of the head. For women, this could look like a widening part with average hair thickness remaining on the back of the head. Typically, patients who have sections of poor quality hair growth on the scalp and some hair follicles, tend to have the greatest success with PRP hair regrowth treatments.

Our PRP for Hair Loss Technique

As a minimally invasive procedure, we can complete the PRP treatments in an hour. PRP begins with one of our dermatologists drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge, which spins the blood at a high speed to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components. Next, we'll administer a local anesthetic to your scalp and apply your platelet-rich plasma to the regions of your head that are bald or thinning. To activate the PRP and enable it to seep deeper into the skin, we perform microneedling on the scalp, which creates micro-injures in the skin. We recommend scheduling a follow-up appointment every 9 – 12 months to maintain your results.

What to Expect

There's no recovery period necessary for this procedure, and you have virtually no limitations or constraints. Patients may develop some redness, minor swelling, or mild tenderness near the treated areas. These symptoms generally last up to 48 hours. While results differ for each person, cosmetic results are usually noticeable 4 – 6 months after the first session and can continue to improve for up to a full year. Since PRP isn't a permanent solution for hair loss, we recommend follow-up treatments every 12 – 18 months. It's important to be aware that PRP doesn't create new hair follicles in places where you're already bald but is rather used to reverse the miniaturization of existing hair follicles, so they produce healthier, thicker, and longer hair fibers.
