How PRP Hair Loss Treatment Works
One of the main contributing factors to thinning hair is a decreased blood supply to the hair follicles – the medical term for this is “ischemia”. This can be the result of aging, genetics, pregnancy or even certain underlying diseases or autoimmune disorders.
During PRP Loss Treatment, the patient’s own blood is drawn just like a simple blood test. The blood is then centrifuged to separate out the PRP (“Platelet Rich Plasma”) – which contains concentrated amounts of natural “growth factor”. The separated out platelets contain approximately 400% to 800% times more growth factor than normal blood.
The concentrated PRP is then re-injected back into the patient’s scalp in the areas of hair loss – either through microneedling or injection. This then stimulates increased blood supply to the dormant hair follicles, triggering 100% natural hair regrowth, and increasing the thickness of the new individual hair shafts being produced.
PRP Hair Loss Treatment FAQs
What is PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
PRP is short for platelet-rich plasma. Platelets are your body’s natural healing and growth factors. We pull this out of your blood and concentrate it into an injection. We then inject the PRP into the area where we want to promote growth and healing. In this case, the injection will naturally stimulate hair growth.
PRP has been used in sports medicine for over a decade to naturally regenerate injured joints. PRP is also used in the popular skin rejuvenating “vampire facials” for its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing abilities and collagen production. More recently PRP has been used as well as a hair regrowth treatment.
This method is advantageous because it is a simple procedure that does not require surgery. The overall treatment time after multiple injections is about 60 minutes. Since we use your body’s healing factors, it is very safe and rarely are the results disappointing. Finally, the results will produce natural hair and recovery time is very quick.
Does PRP Hair Loss Treatment hurt?
Depending on the sensitivity of a patient’s scalp, some patients may report some minor discomfort. However, our doctors can apply some topical numbing cream to make the therapy more comfortable for you. You may experience some soreness after the procedure, but most patients report this passing after a couple of days.
Is PRP Hair Loss Treatment safe?
Since a PRP injection is produced from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk for an allergic reaction. We are just moving one part of your blood to another part of your body. Infections are possible at the point of injection, but we maintain a very high level of cleanliness at our facility and will send you home with instructions on how to keep the treatment area clean and free from possible infection.

Treatment frequency is dependent on the individual patient’s needs, degree of hair loss and rate of hair growth. A treatment plan by our experts will be determined before your PRP Hair Loss Treatment sessions begin. Some patients need multiple treatments to achieve their desired results. Other patients may schedule yearly or bi-annual maintenance sessions to maintain their results.
