PRP for Hair Rejuvenation

Hair loss is a common condition that affects many people worldwide, and it can cause significant distress and affect self-esteem. Many men experience male pattern balding, and their hairlines begin receding, or they develop a bald spot. Women experience female pattern hair loss, which leads to overall thinner hair and a widening part.

We will develop a customized treatment plan based on your hair’s condition and your hair rejuvenation goals.

PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, can be used to trigger cell regeneration. A physician can extract a blood sample and process it in a specialized machine called a centrifuge to separate the plasma and a high concentration of platelets. Platelets are a crucial component of the body’s healing process, including the formation of blood clots.

When the plasma and platelets have been isolated from the rest of the blood, the PRP can be injected under the skin to stimulate cell renewal, prevent hair loss, and regenerate hair growth. A study published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery found that platelet-rich plasma injections were an effective treatment for male pattern baldness, and subjects of the study observed a significant reduction in hair loss.

Prior to your PRP hair rejuvenation treatment, you will have a consultation with one of our trained clinicians, who will help you devise a customized treatment plan to address your hair loss. On the day of your appointment, a small amount of your blood will be drawn by one of our physicians at the clinic. Make sure to eat a meal and be well hydrated so you do not get lightheaded.

Your blood sample will then be processed by our World PRP centrifuge to create platelet-rich plasma, which takes about fifteen minutes. Your skin will be prepped on the treated area, and a local anesthetic will be applied. The PRP will then be injected in the area where you are experiencing hair loss. You can combine platelet-rich plasma with a microneedling treatment for more dramatic results.

There is no required downtime after PRP injections for hair rejuvenation, and you will be able to return to your usual activities. You may experience some minor swelling or pain at the injection site, as well as a minor headache after treatment.

Platelet-rich plasma injections have been research-proven to reduce hair loss and improve hair growth. After platelet-rich plasma injections, patients can expect a higher density of hair growth and an increased diameter of hairs.

Depending on each individuals hair condition and treatment goals, multiple sessions of PRP injections may be recommended. Platelet-rich plasma can also be combined with microneedling to improve results.

The results from PRP hair rejuvenation are not permanent, and additional treatments may be required to maintain results long-term. As hair loss continues to progress over time, your treatment plan may need to be adjusted to suit your needs.

You may be a good candidate for platelet-rich plasma injections if you are experiencing hair loss and would like to improve the density of your hair. To receive PRP injections, you will need to have a small amount of blood drawn, and should therefore be in good overall health.

The best candidates for PRP hair rejuvenation will have thinning or weak hair but still retain functioning hair follicles. Both men and women experiencing hair loss can benefit from PRP hair rejuvenation, but the procedure is typically more effective on those who receive treatment sooner. Schedule your consultation today to find out if platelet-rich plasma injections are the right treatment option for you, and to start your hair rejuvenation journey.
