PRP therapy, or platelet rich plasma therapy, is a minimally-invasive, natural option for patients who are concerned about hair loss or thinning hair. During PRP therapy, your blood will be taken similar to a standard blood draw, and spun in a centrifuge. This will separate the platelet rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the treatment areas(s); most commonly the scalp. Over time, the PRP will stimulate hair follicle growth due to the production of collagen.
Patients who are concerned with thinning hair or hair loss can often benefit from PRP therapy. Since PRP is a natural treatment, most patients tolerate it very well. However, there are patients who should not receive this treatment, including those who have been diagnosed with platelet dysfunction syndromes, chronic liver disease, cancer, thrombocytopenia, and hypofibrinogenemia. A consultation with one of our medical professionals will help to determine if you can benefit from PRP therapy.
There is no downtime associated with PRP therapy, so patients can return to their everyday activities immediately after treatment. Most patients require a series of treatments to see optimal results. Results will vary, though a gradual increase in natural hair growth should occur over the course of several months.
