Restore Dense, Luscious
Hair With PRP

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration is a non-surgical and natural approach to combat hair loss. It involves drawing a small sample of your blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets rich in growth factors, and then injecting this PRP into the scalp. These growth factors stimulate hair follicles, promoting hair growth, increasing thickness, and improving overall health. PRP hair restoration is a safe and effective method to restore your hair’s natural vitality and density.

How PRP Hair Restoration Works

PRP hair restoration catalyzes the body’s natural healing mechanisms to stimulate hair growth. A small blood sample is processed to isolate platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which contains growth factors.

When injected into the scalp, PRP promotes angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels) and encourages collagen production. This increases blood supply to the scalp, allowing the dormant hair follicles to receive the nutrients they need. Over time, the dormant hair follicles activate, ultimately leading to thicker, healthier hair.

Hair Restoration FAQs

Is PRP hair restoration suitable for everyone?

PRP hair restoration is generally safe for most individuals. However, it may not be as effective for those with advanced baldness or completely dormant hair follicles. Consult our qualified providers to determine if you’re a suitable candidate.

Are PRP treatments painful?

PRP treatments are typically well-tolerated and relatively painless. A numbing cream may be applied to the scalp before the procedure to minimize discomfort from the injections. Most patients report only mild, temporary discomfort during the treatment, which subsides quickly.

How many PRP sessions are needed for visible results?

The number of PRP sessions required varies from person to person and depends on the severity of hair loss. Typically, a series of 3 to 6 sessions, spaced several weeks apart, is recommended to achieve noticeable results. After the initial treatment plan, periodic maintenance sessions can help sustain the benefits.

How long does it take to see results from PRP hair restoration?

Results from PRP hair restoration are not immediate. You may start noticing hair thickness and texture improvements within a few months, with continued enhancement over time. Patience is key, as it can take 6-12 months to see significant results.

Are there any side effects or risks associated with PRP hair restoration?

PRP therapy is generally safe with minimal risks. Common side effects include mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection site, which typically resolves within a day or two.

Is PRP therapy a permanent solution for hair loss?

PRP therapy can provide long-lasting results, but it’s not a permanent solution. The extent and duration of improvement vary among individuals. To maintain the benefits, periodic maintenance sessions once or twice a year are often recommended.

Can PRP therapy cause hair to grow in unwanted areas?

PRP therapy is targeted, and there’s no risk of hair growth in unintended areas. It can only stimulate existing hair follicles and can’t lead to the formation of new follicles, so there’s no risk of hair growth in undesirable places.

Is there any downtime or recovery period after PRP hair restoration?

PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure with minimal downtime. Most individuals can resume their regular activities immediately after the session. Some mild redness or swelling at the injection sites may occur, but this typically subsides within a day or two.

Are there any specific post-treatment instructions to follow?

Following PRP treatment, it’s advisable to avoid strenuous physical activity, excessive sun exposure, or heat styling for at least 24-48 hours. Additionally, you may be instructed to use a gentle, sulfate-free shampoo and avoid any hair treatments or chemicals for a few days. Your provider will offer detailed post-treatment instructions tailored to your needs.
