PRP therapy is used in hair restoration for natural-looking results

With a thin needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated. 


  • Simple, non-surgical procedure

What is PRP?

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) commonly used in hair restoration is “autologous,” meaning that it is derived from the patient’s blood. To obtain PRP, a patient’s blood is spun in a centrifuge to separate the solid from liquid components, and platelet activators, such as thrombin, calcium chloride and sometimes collagen, are added. The separated “solid” portion of the blood is PRP (platelet-rich plasma).

PRP is then placed into a syringe and reintroduced into the treatment site i.e., either the surgical site or an area of hair loss. PRP be can sprayed onto a recipient's area during and after a hair transplant, laid into the donor incision, or injected directly into a balding scalp. Before injecting PRP, doctors often create a ring-block of local anesthesia with 1% lidocaine.

When used to stimulate hair growth most doctors schedule injections at intervals of 1 to 9 months. Some improvement (in reversing miniaturization) can be expected in the first 2-6 months. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain any improvement.

How It Works

For the medical treatment of hair loss, practitioners use PRP to stimulate the growth of follicles, thereby reversing the hair miniaturization seen in androgenetic alopecia (common baldness).

It is conjectured that the introduction of platelets and white blood cells through platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can amplify the body’s naturally-occurring wound healing mechanism. It is also proposed that PRP can stimulate the stem cells (dermal papilla) of the newly transplanted hair follicles. Other doctors feel that during a hair transplant procedure, the body’s normal production of bioactive growth factors is optimal for healing and subsequent growth and that PRP for hair loss gives no additional benefit.
