PRP Treatments for Hair Regrowth
PRP hair restoration is a non-surgical therapy that stimulates hair follicles into growth. For men and women who are troubled by thinning hair, receding hairlines or excessive shedding, PRP offers a natural solution to hair loss that requires little more than a vial of your own blood. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, derived from a patient’s own blood through centrifuging. The PRP causes growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of inactive hair follicles. The treatment has minimal discomfort, due to the topical numbing cream used prior to treatment. Using a small gauge needle, the PRP is inserted into the scalp where growth factors immediately go to work. New hair growth may be noticed in as little as two months, but the average is 3 to 6 months. For optimal results, we recommend a series of 5 treatments spaced a month apart, followed by maintenance treatments about every 6 months or so, depending on results desired.
