How does it work?

The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) process involves drawing blood from a patient, spinning the blood, and separating out part of the plasma that has a very high concentration of platelets.  Platelets are important in clotting, but also in wound healing because they contain hundreds of growth factors.  Once the platelet rich plasma is generated, it is then injected back into the same patient’s scalp, a process known as an autologous injection.  The growth factors in PRP work to stimulate the natural growth factors present in the skin and hair follicles.  

How often are treatments done?

Treatment usually consists of three to five sessions spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart.  After a series of three sessions, maintenance therapy once or twice a year is recommended.  The treatment is quick, easy, safe, and effective. 

Does it hurt?

The PRP is injected with tiny needles. While there is a little discomfort, it is quite tolerable, and the injections are finished very quickly.  Afterwards, patients feel a sensation of “fullness” in their scalp because of the volume of PRP that has been injected.  Typically patients can resume their normal activity without any problems.
