What is Hair Restoration?

Hair loss in women and men can be a devastating phenomenon. When we begin to experience thinning hair, or when we start to lose our hair, we also suffer from a wide variety of negative emotional responses as well, such as self-consciousness or loss of confidence, which can affect our mood, our relationships and even our job performance.

Many factors contribute to hair loss. These factors — such as aging, genetic factors and hormonal changes — can all lead to hair loss in both younger and older patients and make treating hair loss challenging. However, an effective and safe treatment that can help both men and women suffering from hair loss is platelet-rich plasma or PRP treatment.

How Does Hair Restoration with PRP Work?

Weakened hair production and hair loss are treatable. Whether you are experiencing areas of slowed hair growth with thinner and fewer hair follicles or areas with hair loss where hair follicles no longer appear, PRP treatment can help you. PRP utilizes growth factors in your own blood — platelet-rich plasma — which studies have demonstrated can stimulate existing hair follicles and encourage the growth of new ones.

What to Expect During Your PRP Hair Restoration Treatment?

You can have a PRP hair restoration in your medical provider’s office as a quick, outpatient procedure after having had a prior full, in-person examination and consultation. On the day of your treatment, our licensed medical staff will draw your blood and centrifuge it to separate the platelets and plasma — which will be used for your hair restoration — from other blood cells. Your medical provider will verify the concentration of platelets and plasma necessary is present to administer to you.

You will receive the PRP as injections to the scalp which will be first cleansed with an antiseptic. The very small, hair-like needles will produce virtually no pain as PRP is administered. After you have received your injections, your PRP treatment will be complete, and your results will appear over time.

What Results Will I Have After Hair Restoration?

After you have received your PRP treatment, your body will respond with improved hair growth and new hair generation. Hair growth is not a rapid process, so it will take several months for visible results to appear. Most patients notice improvements in the treated areas as soon as six months after their PRP treatment. Full results of PRP appear for most patients after 12 months. Your results will include thicker, existing hair follicles as well as new follicle growth in previously bald areas. Most patients continue to experience improvements after 12 months following their PRP treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How long do results from PRP last?

Answer: Results of any medical procedure will vary from individual to individual as many variables will affect the outcome of a procedure. Most PRP patients, however, experience long-lasting results in excess of 18 months and as long as 24 months in some cases.

Question: Am I a candidate for hair restoration?

Answer: If you are experiencing thinning hair, fewer active hair follicles and areas of baldness, you are likely a candidate for a PRP hair restoration treatment. Schedule an in-person consultation with New Skin & Body to verify this. Your provider will study your medical history and diagnose the cause of your hair thinning or hair loss. Once diagnosed, the proper treatment can be identified, which may be PRP. Patients with certain blood conditions may not have PRP treatments, so discuss this issue during your initial consultation. Also, if you are currently experiencing severe depletion of hair follicles in your concerned areas, you may benefit more from alternative treatments.

Question: What is recovery like from PRP?

Answer: There is minimal to no recovery after a PRP treatment. A few patients will experience mild redness or swelling in the treatment are, however, many do not. You may wash your hair and scalp a few hours after treatment and resume all your regular exercise routines the next day. If you take Minoxidil or other hair treatments, you may resume those the next day as well. For the first 72 hours, hair coloring or other harsh treatments should be avoided, however.

Question: Is PRP safe?

Answer: PRP uses nourishing platelets found in your own body in your blood. These platelets are drawn with your blood using sterile instruments and medical best practices to ensure their purity throughout your treatment before being returned to your body. As a result, a PRP treatment has much lower risks when compared with other cosmetic treatments and patients tolerate PRP very well.

Question: How many treatments will I need?

Answer: Most patients typically need between four and six sessions of PRP to obtain the visible difference in the hair quality and volume they desire. These sessions will be spaced approximately three to five weeks apart. Follow-up sessions can be scheduled as needed about 12 to 18 months after your final treatment or as needed.

Question: What is the cost?

Answer: The average cost for a single session of PRP for hair restoration is approximately $775. Package pricing is available, however, which will reduce your per session rate. Your provider will go over your course of treatment, rates and available payment options with you during your free consultation.
