Revive Your Hair with PRP Injections

Hair loss is a common condition affecting over 80 million people annually in the United States.

Finding an effective treatment can be difficult for individuals who struggle with hair loss. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections have gained popularity in the last few years due to their effectiveness in promoting hair and follicle growth. Unlike other treatments, PRP injections are natural and require minimal to no recovery time, making them a top choice among patients

HOW DO PRP INJECTIONS WORK?

Our bodies are smart; when we are injured, we send blood platelets to the injury site to promote healing. PRP injections are a natural therapy that utilizes the platelets produced by your body to stimulate healing in areas impacted by hair loss or alopecia.

A small amount of blood is extracted from the patient’s arm with a fine needle. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge that spins the blood so the platelets can be concentrated and separated. Your doctor will then extract the platelets with a syringe and inject them into the target areas on your scalp. The entire treatment is relatively painless and should only take about an hour.

Depending on how you respond to the treatment, your doctor will suggest follow-up treatments every 3–6 months.

RECOVERY / RESULTS

The recovery process for PRP injections for hair loss is generally quite mild. Patients may experience some mild discomfort at the injection site, as well as some minor swelling or bruising. However, these symptoms typically subside within a few days, and most patients are able to resume their normal activities immediately following treatment.

Results from PRP injections for hair loss can vary depending on the severity of the patient’s hair loss and other individual factors. However, many patients report noticeable improvements in hair thickness and volume within a few months of treatment
