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. 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.

What Are The Benefits Of PRP Therapy For Hair Loss?

If you’re looking for an effective way to combat hair loss without painful transplants, PRP therapy can be a powerful solution. PRP therapy offers a range of benefits over conventional hair loss treatments, including:

  • Uses your body's own healing processes
  • No drugs or medications
  • No side effects
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • No surgery required
  • Addresses the root cause of hair loss
  • Can be combined with other hair treatments for enhanced results
  • No recovery or downtime
  • Treatments are quick and easy

Am I A Candidate For PRP Therapy For Hair Loss?

Any person suffering from balding is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but patients with early hair loss typically yield the best results. PRP is best used for those with androgenic alopecia, an inherited type of hair loss that typically presents on the top of the head. For women, this can look like a widening part with average hair density on the back of the scalp. Those with areas of "weak quality” hair growth on the scalp with normally functioning hair follicles usually have the greatest results with PRP hair regrowth therapy.

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.

What Should I Expect After PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?

There's no recovery period necessary after PRP therapy for hair loss. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minor swelling, and mild tenderness in the treated regions. These symptoms might last a couple of days. While results differ for each individual, aesthetic results are generally seen approximately 4 – 6 months after the first session and may continue to improve for as much as a complete year following therapy. Since PRP isn't a permanent option for hair loss, repeat treatments are recommended every 12 – 18 months. It is essential to know that PRP doesn't grow new hair follicles in areas where you're bald. It's utilized to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will create healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

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.
