PRP is used to treat hair loss. About 25% of the population suffer from alopecia or common male pattern baldness. Contrary to popular belief, women make up about 40% of those who suffer from hair loss. Hair loss in both men and women can be devastating and have adverse effects on a person’s relationships, career, and overall daily routine. Although this condition has been overlooked in the past, new technologies can offer incredible results for those in search of hair rejuvenation. PRP hair restoration is an innovative, non-surgical procedure that has been shown to dramatically improve hair growth and thicken existing hair.
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is found in our blood, is permeated with proteins called growth factors. These growth factors promote and accelerate multi-injury healing. When present in high enough concentrations, PRP can battle hair loss by recruiting reparative cells to the hair follicle. When injected into the scalp, PRP stimulates inactive hair follicles and shifts them into the growth phase.
How does the treatment work?
First, we apply numbing cream to your scalp. We then draw approximately 20 ml of blood from a vein in your hand or arm and place it in a centrifuge where the activated platelets are separated from the other component of the blood. Using a small needle, we then inject the PRP into the scalp. The entire treatment can require between 30 to 45 minutes.
We recommend 1 treatment per month, for 3 months, then 1 treatment every 3 months thereafter.
Cost is $500/treatment
