PRP hair treatment, or Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, is an innovative hair restoration procedure used to stimulate new hair growth around thinning areas. PRP’s regenerative technique has been used for years to aid in the healing process for those who have suffered an injury or undergone surgery. Now, technological advancements have led to the use of PRP for hair loss restoration. Both men and women suffer from hair loss, and over 50% of the population will experience thinning hair as they age. For those looking to add thickness to their scalp, PRP hair loss treatment is a promising, non-surgical solution that can:
During PRP hair restoration, blood is drawn from the arm and then carefully spun using a specialized centrifuge; this process separates the platelet rich plasma found in your blood sample from the accompanying red and white blood cells. Once isolated, the PRP is then prepared for reinjection into the scalp. Your NYC hair surgeon will then use a small needle to inject the platelet rich plasma into areas of thinning hair.
Results will ultimately depend on the patient. However, you can expect to see long-lasting improvements to the fullness and thickness of your hair beginning in the following 3-6 months, with results continuing up to a full year for some patients. Additional PRP hair treatments may be required in order to achieve optimal results.
