What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP Hair Restoration involves using the growth factors and proteins in your blood plasma to help thicken and regrow hair. Studies have shown that a series of PRP sessions can stop and even reverse the process of hair loss for both men and women.

Doctors typically use this treatment to address the shrinking of hair follicles and hair loss associated with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Many women have found this treatment helpful as well, improving hair density, fullness and ability to style their hair as desired.

How does PRP Hair Restoration work?

PRP therapy for hair loss is the same process as for cosmetic application. The first step is to draw your blood and process it in a centrifuge to separate the blood into different components — red blood cells and platelet rich plasma.

Next your doctor will administer some local numbing cream to your scalp in order to minimize pain and discomfort, followed by reinjecting the PRP into the treatment areas of your scalp. Microneedling may be performed during the same session to stimulate the hair follicles and allow deeper penetration of the PRP.
