PRP Hair Treatment

What is PRP Hair Treatment?

For some, hair loss becomes a more prevalent issue as we age. While there are many treatment methods to restore hair growth, PRP has demonstrated successful results for clients, proving itself as a scientifically-advanced method to increase hair growth. There are many benefits to this treatment for both men and women.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair therapy provides a non-surgical option for people experiencing hair loss or thinning. It uses your blood to stimulate hair growth as the plasma contained in the blood creates a reserve of protein. This helps to balance electrolytes and increases follicular regeneration.

What are the most common forms of hair loss?

Although hair loss is more common for men, they are not the only ones experiencing hair loss, as women can also experience lost or thinning hair.

While the extent of hair loss experienced by men and women may differ, it can still cause people to become self-conscious and feel insecure regarding their appearance. Types of hair loss include:

Male Pattern Baldness

Male Pattern Baldness can occur in some men as early as the late teens/early twenties. Generally, it appears at 50, wherein half of Caucasian men show visible signs of hair loss like receding hairlines, balding, or noticeable thinning.

Treatments involve reducing additional hair loss and attempting to restimulate hair growth. It works best when treatments are conducted at the onset of hair loss.

Female Pattern Hair Loss (FPHL)

This condition affects millions of women and is the leading cause of hair loss. It tends to begin at midlife and can be progressive as women age. Women tend to continue to lose hair with FPHL but generally don’t lose all their hair.

Instead, the part becomes wider, hair located by the temples recedes, and widespread thinning may result without treatment.


Alopecia is when your body attacks its hair follicles generating hair loss. Those experiencing this can have an oval or round bald patch on the scalp. Hair loss is unpredictable, and hair can regrow without using treatments.

However, sometimes when it does regrow, it can also fall out again.

How does PRP Treatment Stop Hair Loss?

This therapy taps into regeneration powers found in mesenchymal stem cells in human blood. Like a routine blood test, blood is withdrawn, then spun in a centrifuge. This allows the PRP to separate from the remainder of the blood.

Highly concentrated amounts of PRP are injected into the scalp in addition to being topically applied. It will begin to work to stimulate the growth of new follicles.

Treatments are provided every six months and are known to progressively stimulate new hair growth.

Benefits of having PRP for hair

There are several benefits to receiving PRP treatments. This natural, non-invasive treatment is safe and uses the body’s natural resources to stimulate new hair growth. The procedure is painless and has minimal effects. Furthermore, recovery is quick with no downtime.

  • Convenient and Safe: Since treatments use your blood, they are safe and non-invasive.
Hair growth is stimulated by harnessing regenerative powers found in mesenchymal stem cells. This means that treatment is more natural than other methods used to treat hair loss.
  • No Scarring: While there are many methods to restoring hair growth, some can be painful and complicated.
PRP injections are done in an office without requiring long recoveries or undergoing an extensive procedure. Treatments are non-invasive and will not cause scarring.
  • Reduces Hair Loss: Treatment addresses the root cause of hair loss. By stimulating inactive hair follicles, hair regrowth is promoted.
It yields results in both the present and over the long term. Results are natural as it fosters hair regrowth.
  • Minimal Discomfort: Hair loss treatments are undetectable, so people cannot tell if you are receiving therapy.
The injections generate few side effects; redness or minor bruising at your injection site is not uncommon, but it will resolve within a few days.
  • Fast Results: Results are quick as treatments are designed to foster hair regrowth by tapping into your body’s resources.
In addition to the benefits listed above, PRP therapy contains minimal side effects and provides natural-looking results.
