PRP for hair loss treatments involve three steps:
The Blood Draw: We will draw some of your blood, which is typically taken from the arm. Your blood is put into a centrifuge that spins the blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma.
Centrifuge Isolation of PRP: The centrifuge separates the fluids in the blood and takes around 10-20 minutes. The goal is to isolate the PRP from the red and white blood cells, which is a yellowish or straw-like color.
PRP Scalp Injections: The isolated PRP is injected into precise areas of the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
PRP for hair loss is a cost-effective, simple, and non-surgical treatment that can provide a substantial improvement in hair growth and thickness. There’s little to no downtime involved, though some patients wait a day to return to work. Using your own blood reduces certain risks, but infection, blood vessel or nerve injury, and adverse reaction to local anesthetic can occur. If you are a heavy smoker, take blood thinners, or have a medical condition such as cancer, liver disease, diabetes, chronic infections, or low platelet count, PRP therapy may not be right for you.
