Everything You Need to Know About Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss Restoration

By May 9, 2017May 11th, 2023Hair Loss

The sudden thinning or loss of hair can be a traumatic thing for a woman to experience. Fortunately, many women have seen remarkable results from Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (PRP). This all-natural procedure helps women achieve fuller, healthier hair and renewed confidence using the body’s healing properties.

The Science Behind PRP Therapy

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy helps to restore hair growth naturally. We target your dormant hair follicles with essential growth proteins already found in your blood. The highly concentrated plasma (the colorless, fluid part of blood) includes essential growth proteins that have shown to stimulate hair growth significantly. Some patients see results with PRP hair loss therapy alone, while others also incorporate nutrition therapy or medication.

How We Perform Our PRP Therapy Procedure

The state-of-the-art, non-surgical hair loss treatment is a natural alternative to other medical options, such as transplants. The doctor draws a small amount of blood to be processed in a centrifuge to isolate only the enriched cells. Your plasma is then injected into the scalp using a special microneedle. A topical anesthetic or local injection anesthetic is typically used. The treatment takes about an hour.

Who Is the Best Candidate for This Type of Therapy?

Young women experiencing female pattern hair loss or hair thinning are ideal candidates for PRP therapy. Patients must be non-smokers who do not abuse alcohol or prescription medication. Patients with specific medical conditions, such as platelet dysfunction syndromes, may benefit from other solutions, but the vast majority of women are suitable for this non-invasive procedure.
