Over 80 million Americans are affected by hair loss and 2 out of 3 men experience some sort of hair loss by the age of 35. Platelet-rich plasma hair therapy is a relatively recently developed hair loss treatment that has been proven to show results in the vast majority of recipients. PRP hair treatment uses the nutrients in your own blood platelets to stimulate hair growth and restore its natural thickness.
PRP therapy works by promoting the growth of new blood vessels which brings increased blood flow to the scalp. Increasing the scalp’s blood flow will encourage a longer anagen phase, where hair does the majority of its growth. Not only does PRP treatment promote new hair growth, but it also improves the quality of your existing hair. The hair shaft will become stronger, and more pliable and its luster will be restored.

In rare circumstances hair problems continue to get worse, however, this does not necessarily come from PRP injections. If you are having hair problems, they most likely will continue to get worse without treatment.
PRP is scientifically proven to help reduce hair loss in some patients and increase its thickness and natural health. A June 2018 study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology (1) reported:
“The clinical application of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is based on the increase in the concentration of growth factors that are released from (the) alpha-granule (simply the container within the blood that holds growth factors) of the concentrated platelets and in the secretion of proteins which are able to capitalize on the healing process at the cellular level … it is also emerged to include hairs as a new injectable procedure to enable stimulating hair growth locally and topically; preventing its fall; improving hair shaft, hair stem, and its caliber; increasing its shine, vitality, and pliability; and declining hair splitting and breakage.”
The FDA has approved Daxxify by Revance, a new injectable medicine for smoothing facial wrinkles in adults. Daxxify is in the same class of medicines as Botox, Dysport, Xeomin, and Jeuveau, but may be more effective in reducing wrinkles for longer periods of time. In clinical trials, 80% of participants had little or no visible facial wrinkles after four months of using Daxxify, and half still had little evidence of wrinkles after six months. Dermatologists believe Daxxify will change the market for neuromodulators.

PRP hair treatment usually lasts from 18-24 months. We recommend regular touchups to enjoy continued hair growth results.
It is relatively painless and you will be able to go about your day as normal after.
After the procedure, you should not use any harsh chemicals in your hair such as hair spray, get a perm or use harmful shampoos. You should wash your hair with a PH-balanced shampoo.
Your scalp will feel 100% normal after about 4-6 weeks. You may experience mild discomfort at times during that time, but nothing serious.
You will start seeing results around 3-6 months after your 1st treatment.
