What is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Hair thinning is a major concern for a number of adults, whether it's caused by genetics, age, hormones, health conditions, or from years of over styling. With recent advancements in research within the hair restoration field, patients have new procedure options to help fight the issue. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an emerging nonsurgical treatment for people that can provide remarkable benefits in slowing down, stopping, and reversing baldness. PRP has shown promising outcomes in individuals with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. By mixing a strong solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, our team of expert physicians can help strengthen your hair, leading to longer, thicker, and healthier locks.
"Dr. Maniam is great and you took care of my knee. My knee feeks great and i can walk again. The visit was beautiful and they treat me with respect."- K.D. / Google / May 18, 2021
"On first arrival Dr. Kohler and his staff at Ospina Medicine were warm and welcoming. He was precise in his knowledge and explained all parts of both my pain management due to previous injury, and preventative measures for future treatment. Their New York City based state of the art technology and contemporary office made me feel at ease immediately. As someone with continual back pain, and as someone who wants to avoid opioid treatment, the very nature of Ospina Medical using non-opioid approaches to pain management for me was a big bonus. The results have been brilliant, and I am so pleased to have Dr. Kohler to help me through my pain management process."- M.M. / Google / May 17, 2021
"The nicest people, the best care. I feel so much better already. Would recommend to any and all friends, dancers, athletes, who are having pain."- C.J. / Google / May 14, 2021
"Dr Maniam and his staff are excellent. Renya at the front desk is always friendly and makes me feel comfortable. There’s a real sense that they care about their patients. I’ve had numerous spinal epidural‘s and radio frequency ablations, they’ve been painless and have gotten excellent results. This is the best pain management group that I’ve been to and I’ve been to more than a few... I highly recommend Ospina!"- M.G. / Google / May 14, 2021
"I've had 3 cortisone injections with Ospina and I'm amazed by the care they take when applying the injections. I can't believe how well it works and what good care they take of me. (I had received an injection somewhere else and it was more painful, bruised badly, and didn't last near as long.) I will ONLY go to Ospina now. The staff and doctors are truly WONDERFUL. Don't hesitate!"- P.G. / Google / Apr 30, 2021
Our PRP for Hair Loss Technique
As a minimally invasive process, PRP therapy is a short 60-minute, in-office visit. The process begins with taking a small amount of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge, which spins the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. Next, we administer a local anesthetic to your scalp and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is injected into parts of your scalp that appear bald or thin. Our routine for nonsurgical management of hair loss consists of an initial treatment and maintenance treatments roughly every nine months to a year.
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss FAQ
How much does PRP therapy for hair cost?
The cost of your PRP therapy will depend on several factors, including how many treatments you get. During your consultation, we will create your PRP treatment plan to maximize your results. Then, we can discuss the cost of your PRP therapy. Our team will also tell you about any current specials being offered and which payment methods Ospina Medical accepts.
Can PRP be combined with other hair treatments?
Many patients combine other treatments with PRP therapy, including topical medication applied at home, microneedling, and more. We will assess your scalp and level of hair loss before creating your custom PRP therapy treatment plan. Our team can discuss recommendations for what in-office treatments work best for your hair loss and any home products that might help between appointments.
How often should I get PRP treatments?
Most patients need at least three PRP treatments performed one month apart to see results. Your specific PRP therapy program will depend on the degree of hair loss and your goals. Based on this, we can recommend how many PRP treatments you will need and how often you should schedule them to stimulate your hair growth. If your condition is more advanced, one of our physicians may recommend more treatment initially, which can be performed less frequently once you begin to see results.
