Hair Restoration

Hair RestorationUntil recently, men and women with thinning hair had just a few options. They could do a hair transplant, and they could use an LED cap, or they could use minoxidil or another stimulating chemical. PRP is completely natural with zero side effects because it is using your own blood.

Platelet rich plasma or a PRP has been used in regenerative medicine for years. We utilize PRP injections into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. This has been found to be very effective, and the use of an LED cap can augment the results. Those you can buy on Amazon!

Thinning or recently balding scalps are typically very good candidates, however, only hair transplants will work for long-standing baldness where scar tissue has covered the scalp. most hair restoration clinics performing hair transplants include PRP after hair restoration because it’s such a powerful bio stimulating agent.

Depending on the severity of loss and the degree of regrowth desired, the recommended treatment is once a month for 2 to 3 months with a follow up treatment every 5 to 6 months.

How do we do this procedure?

This is actually a very straightforward procedure. Our phlebotomist draws your blood and we spin it down to get the platelet rich plasma.

We use some topical numbing on your scalp and we have found that our cryotherapy machine is highly effective at decreasing any pain. Most patients experience none.

We clean the scalp using a hypo chlorous solution and then inject small boluses of PRP spaced 1 cm apart in the affected area. Wash your hair prior to your appointment and you should not wash your hair for 48 hours afterwards; but otherwise you can resume normal activities.

The entire procedure takes less than an hour. Cost can range from $800-$1850 typically, obviously larger areas require more PRP and time.

We are excited to be able to help people minimize hair loss!

Be well. Age less. Live more.
