What is Platelet

Rich Plasma Therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that doctors use to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. It's in your blood and has a lot of growth factors. PRP injections can be effective in treating male pattern baldness, both in preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth.

Our treatments are derived autologously (from your own body) or from allograft products (donated tissue). This allows us to provide the most appropriate treatment for each individual patient’s needs. These regenerative treatments have a unique ability to assist your body in regenerating tissue, reducing pain and reducing inflammation in damaged muscles, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, spinal discs, and bone.

Frequently

Asked Questions

  • It’s a high concentration (2-3x) of your own platelets in a small volume of plasma. It’s obtained from spinning down your blood, removing the white and red blood cells, and using the highly concentrated serum as an adjunct for other procedures. For example, for specific types of hair loss, it is injected back into your scalp.

  • It is also used for facial rejuvenation, as an alternative (or adjunct) for hyaluronic acid fillers, or after laser rejuvenation, or post-micro needling (my favorite!!). (Stay tuned as I’ll devote a separate article explaining these!)

  • It is 100% completely natural, void of synthetic factors, as it is derived 100% from YOUR OWN BLOOD. Consequently, there is no risk of allergy.

  • Here, I focus on using PRP for hair loss. Specifically, PRP is quite helpful for early to moderate stages of androgenetic alopecia. Androgenetic alopecia is one of the most common causes of hair loss, resulting from a combination of genetic, hormonal, and environmental/nutrition effects. 

  • You’ll notice thicker, more luscious hair after your treatments, and a decrease in hair loss

  • Platelets contain an abundance of growth factors (such of PDGF, TGF, VEGF, EGF, FGF, CTGF), which are crucial for tissue rebuilding and repair. It also contains molecules important for cell migration and proliferation, along with numerous cytokines, anti-microbial peptides, and anti-inflammatory molecules, all to assist with a variety of aesthetic concerns, such as facial rejuvenation and hair loss! 
  • For Hair Loss: It acts by a variety of mechanisms, including enhancing proliferation and survival of hair follicles. It also acts to increase blood flow to your hair follicles, bringing more nutrients. 

  • For Facial Rejuvenation: It acts as a collagen stimulator, to counteract common signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, pore size, volume loss, texture/complexion, fine lines/wrinkles. 

  • It takes about 30-45 minutes. It takes 5-10 minutes to draw blood, another 10 minutes to spin out the other cells, and 10-15 minutes for injections. 

  • To begin with, I recommend 3 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart to boost hair growth. 

  • Maintenance spaced out every 6-8 weeks or quarterly can be done thereafter, depending on your needs. 

  • For hair loss: we typically do not pretreat with numbing medication, as the injections are quick! If you are not having any laser resurfacing or micro needling performed at the same visit, I usually apply any leftover liquid gold over your scalp. 

  • Recovery time is variable, but most take a few days.

  • Expect mild tension and pressure from the injection sites. You will experience mild tightness and a mild headache. It is okay to use Arnica. 

  • You should not expect any “down” time, as you should be able to resume or normal activities. 

  • Of note, it is okay for mild exercise (such as walking), but I would avoid any strenuous exertion or inversions for the first 24 hours. 

  • Hair loss is best addressed in a combination of approaches. 

  • Following a sound nutrient-dense food plan is key, along with proper supplementation. 

  • I typically recommend taking our Hair Care Supplements, which includes our carefully sourced vitamins, minerals, and adaptogens to support healthy hair growth.
