Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, for hair loss is an incredibly safe treatment that is becoming increasingly popular for treating the early stages of hair thinning. Many of our patients prefer it to more difficult or time-consuming medications or treatments that often come with a bevy of side effects.
PRP is Fast and Easy
A PRP appointment is simple and straightforward. Your appointment will involve a sample of your blood being taken. After the blood cells are separated out of the plasma, the resulting plasma will be rich in platelets and is ready to be injected into your scalp. Most of our patients do not need any kind of anesthetic to remain comfortable during the treatment.
PRP Offers Little to No Downtime
Since this is a minimally-invasive procedure, you do not have to worry about a lengthy recovery period. The whole treatment is done in the comfort of our office, and you will be able to go back to your regular activities as soon as your appointment is over.
PRP is Safe
Since this hair loss treatment uses your own platelets, you do not have to worry about developing any allergies from it. You will have no reactions to this treatment. There is little risk from the injections, no risk from the platelets used and virtually no risk afterwards.
PRP Stimulates Your Body’s Own Healing Processes
Platelets have incredible healing powers. When injected into your scalp to treat hair loss, the platelets draw stem cells into the area, which can effectively grow into any type of cell necessary in the area. This can help you produce new hair follicles and can improve the health of the hair follicles that you already have.
PRP Gives You Natural Results
PRP therapy provides far more natural results than many other hair growth treatments do. Regrowth is evenly distributed throughout the area because the PRP is injected in regular areas across the scalp. The hair will be your own and will look just as good as or healthier than your current hair does.
