PRP hair restoration is a natural, autologous treatment that helps you achieve a full head of hair. This treatment involves injecting unique, regenerative components derived from your body, known as platelet-rich plasmas, back into your scalp. PRPs are known for their immense healing properties, and they reactivate your dormant hair follicles, thus stimulating natural hair regrowth. PRP hair restoration can reverse the effects of androgenic alopecia and help you achieve a fuller head of hair.

How it Works
PRP, short for platelet-rich plasma, is a natural component of the human blood with a high concentration of growth factors. The growth factors are the body’s primary healing components — they stimulate natural growth, collagen production, blood circulation, clot formation, and much more. PRP hair restoration works by harnessing the body’s natural regenerative and healing properties and concentrating them on the scalp, thus reversing the effects of hair loss.
The PRP hair restoration procedure involves drawing a small sample of your blood, spinning it in a centrifuge to isolate PRPs, and injecting them into strategic areas on the scalp. The growth factors in the PRP trigger the formation of new stem cells in the roots of the hair follicles, encourage blood circulation to the scalp, and reawaken the dormant hair follicles, leading to a luscious head of hair.

Your PRP Hair Restoration Journey
Your PRP hair restoration journey starts with a thorough, comprehensive assessment by your medical provider. After curating a personalized treatment plan based on your unique goals and medical history, your treatment can begin. The medical provider draws a small sample of your blood from your arm via a syringe. Your blood is placed in a centrifuge and spun to isolate the platelet-rich plasmas, the golden-colored liquid that rises to the top of the vial.
After harvesting and purifying the platelet-rich plasmas, the medical provider marks the treatment areas on your scalp. The PRP serum is carefully injected into strategically chosen treatment areas on your scalp using ultrafine needles. The number of injections depends on your unique goals and requirements. The entire treatment should conclude within an hour, following which you can return home.
PRP hair restoration doesn’t involve any downtime or recovery period. You can resume your daily activities and work immediately after treatment. In fact, unlike most other hair restoration techniques, you can also start washing your hair immediately. You may experience mild redness, swelling, irritation, and discomfort for a few days, but these side effects are tolerable. There is no risk of allergies because the PRP serum is drawn from your body.
Most patients need a series of 4 to 6 PRP treatments spaced a month apart for optimal results. Your medical provider will curate a personalized hair restoration treatment plan based on your unique needs. The number of sessions and frequency will depend on the degree of hair loss. The results become evident after about six months, with continued improvements for several months. You will also need about two maintenance treatments per year.
