PRP Hair Restoration

PRP is an out-patient procedure, which means there is no surgery involved and downtime is minimal. The innovative treatment produces results are reliable and natural in the least invasive way. The procedure can produce great results as a stand-alone treatment, but can also be recommended in conjunction with other hair loss techniques. It is important that patients understand that results can be slow and gradual. Generally, results will begin to transpire after the first two or three months, and will be most noticeable around the six-month mark.

Who is a Candidate for PRP?

Hair loss can occur in both men and women, and this procedure is designed with that in mind. PRP is equally effective as a way to counteract female pattern baldness as it is for our male patients. The best candidates for a PRP treatment are patients who have slight to moderate hair loss, who want to take charge and regain confidence in their look.

During your consultation, Dr King, and our Nurse Amanda Hall and their team will assess your condition in person and recommend the best course of action for you. We are happy to go over any remaining questions and concerns you may have.

PRP Therapy Process

PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.

Maintenance treatments are required every 4–6 months.

Step 1

Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).

Step 2

After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:

  • platelet-poor plasma
  • platelet-rich plasma
  • red blood cells

Step 3

The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
