Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections for hair are designed for patients in need of specific hair rejuvenation. Made to fit your needs, PRP Hair Restoration uses your body’s plasma—along with a Platelet Separator system—designing the PRP process into three steps for your hair growth.
PRP Hair Restoration is customized for each patient. It is beneficial for both men and women who have recently noticed mild-to-moderate forms of balding. After meeting with our in-house specialist, your own plasma will be used to assist with the process. Once the plasma is separated from your blood sample, it will be used on specific areas of your scalp for hair restoration. This procedure is available to men and women 18 years and older. You will likely need a different hair restoration process if you are beyond a Norwood 3 level of hair loss.
Hair-thinning prevention is one of the main benefits of PRP treatment. PRP is also essential in the reinvigoration of hair follicles, which are the parts of the scalp surrounding the root of your hair that allow the hair growth to start.
Thickening of the hair shaft is another benefit of PRP Hair Restoration, adding a smooth and lush feel to your newly grown hair. Most PRP patients can expect to see hair growth and increased progress of hair restoration within one month.

After meeting with our in-house specialist for a 15-30 minute, one-on-one consultation, there will be a blood-drawing process (lasting no longer than 20 minutes). The blood is then spun to separate the platelet-rich plasma for injection. Finally, the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the areas of the scalp that you and the doctor have mapped out.
Each hair restoration patient has their own recovery time, but you should expect the most common side effects—including minor scalp pain—which typically subsides after a few days. At the most, this scalp discomfort side effect should last no longer than three to four weeks.
