Clinical studies show it is a extremely fast and effective treatment for hormonal hair loss (androgenic alopecia) in both men and women. Benefits:

  • A non-invasive method ... with no surgery

  • Nearly painless treatment

  • No downtime 

  • Additive and chemical-free natural blood components are used

  • No allergic reactions or side effects


PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy for men’s and women’s hair loss is becoming more and more common and is proving to be effective in correcting hair loss when done correctly. 

Even though PRP therapy has been around since the 1980’s, doctors only started using it recently as a treatment for certain types of alopecia. Many user experiences have noted good results and the popularity of the procedure is growing rapidly. 

PRP for hair loss is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes the stem cells and growth factors from the patient’s own blood to trigger the growth of hair from resting or miniaturized hair follicles.

PRP Hair Restoration is an effective way to improve your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. The procedure involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.


These are the results that may be expected:

  • Increased blood supply to the hair follicle

  • Increased hair shaft size (thickness)

  • Triggered and maintained hair growth phase

  • Controlled hair growth cycle

  • Decreased hair loss

On the day of the procedure, you medical practitioner will apply a local anesthetic agent after which a small blood sample is taken in our office and centrifuged. The prepared PRP growth factor is injected into the scalp using a syringe to help the biologically active materials to penetrate into the scalp at the level of the hair follicle.


The PRP is injected in a painless fashion into the scalp where there is hair loss. During the treatment, we ensure there is minimal discomfort or pain. While some minor irritation and redness are common after the therapy, these can easily be managed with medications.

The entire procedure can take anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes to complete and you can usually get back to your activities after the treatment.

There is no downtime to this procedure. The side effects are not common but could include infection or bruising.


Results from PRP therapy vary and are typically seen within six months of the first treatment, although most clients begin to notice results at three months. The best outcomes are seen on patients who have hair thinning, but not completely bald spots on their head.

Standardized photos will be taken before each PRP Hair Restoration treatment so that improvement can be tracked. Looking over PRP hair restoration before and after photos is the best way to see how your results may look. It is important to understand that results will vary and there is never a guarantee of success.

A multi-therapy regimen for optimal results may also include topical and oral medications as well as nutritional supplements.

 After the treatment phase, the average hereditary hair loss patient can expect a PRP treatment once every 6-12 months to maintain results.Most patients will require this treatment every month for three months and then possibly again in 6 months or a year.  

What is the treatment schedule like?

PRP therapy for hair loss is initially performed as a series of three treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart.


After completing the initial series, maintenance is recommended with one treatment every 6-12 months.

How Long Treatment Results Last?

Recognizing and treating your hair loss cause is a crucial piece in maintaining your results from PRP restoration treatments. If the cause of your hair loss is not diagnosed and corrected, you will continue to experience localized hair loss in certain areas of your scalp. Androgenetic alopecia and other types of hair loss cannot be cured with PRP and only treated.


If your hair loss was caused by stress or taking certain medications, follow up treatments once or twice a year are recommended to maintain your results.


While PRP therapy for hair growth is still in its infancy from a medical research standpoint, evidence suggests that treatment results can last for years if hair loss’s initial cause is addressed.


What is PRP? 

Platelet Rich Plasma is the derivative of blood centrifuged at a high speed. The blood is separated into two distinct layers, leaving the heavier red, white, and stem cells to collect at the bottom. In the meantime, the lighter weight platelets and plasma are able to be collected from the top of a tube containing an anticoagulant

Am I a good candidate for PRP hair restoration?

PRP hair restoration works best during the early stages of hair loss and is not a good option for candidates who are completely bald.

If you are in overall good health, have weak hair follicles, and are experiencing small areas of alopecia areata on your scalp, you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.

Patients who are undergoing cortisone therapy, have low blood pressure, or are smokers may not be good candidates for PRP hair restoration.Additionally, patients with blood disorders may not be ideal candidates for this treatment, particularly if these disorders affect platelet count or the ability to clot properly.


How Does PRP Hair Regrowth Work?


  • The treatment begins with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), a concentration derived from your own blood.

  • A process called centrifugation isolates beneficial elements like proteins and growth factors from your drawn blood. These elements are known to help the body in healing and tissue regeneration.

  • The highly concentrated centrifuged blood is injected into your scalp where it releases growth factors and stimulates hair follicles to enter the active growth phase.

  • During the next 3-4 months as your hair follicles become more active, you will experience less hair loss and increased hair growth.

  • Because the treatment uses your own blood, the process is safe and carries no risk of allergic reaction. PRP has been used safely and effectively for more than 20 years for wound healing in numerous medical applications.
