What is platelet rich plasma (PRP)?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a scientifically proven form of regenerative medicine that is created from your own body’s blood to harness the incredibly rich supply of platelets and their natural growth factors to both heal and regenerate human tissues, including hair.
PRP is created by taking a small sample of your blood, centrifuging (spinning at high speed) it in order to remove the unwanted blood components thus leaving us with an ultra-concentrated layer of growth factor rich platelets.
The highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp or other targeted areas that are in need of regeneration. PRP contains many natural growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. Because PRP consists of your body’s natural healing platelets, it provides a safe and effective treatment for hair restoration.
How can PRP help hair loss?
PRP is a great solution for both men and women looking to stimulate hair growth with little downtime. These injections of PRP can stabilize hair loss and in many cases stimulate new hair growth for those who suffer from hair loss or thinning. Because of the injection methods, we are able to specifically targets the areas of the scalp where you are wanting new hair growth. This procedure usually takes about 45-60 minutes from the time your blood is drawn until the PRP is purified and injected into your scalp. Research studies have shown that it typically takes 3 treatments (spaced 6-8 weeks apart) to see maximal benefits. Many patients will continue to get a single treatment once a year afterward in order to maintain hair growth and stabilize future hair loss.

What is the cost of PRP for Hair Restoration?
The average price for PRP sessions at our practice can cost between $1000 and $1400 each. The exact expense is determined by the size of the treatment area and the amount of PRP that is injected during the session. It is common for patients to undergo more than one treatment session to achieve optimal results. Generally, our protocol for patients is three sessions over several months, with biannual or annual maintenance as needed.
