What is PRP Hair Restoration?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration is a simple, in-office procedure to stimulate hair growth. PRP involves a simple injection of your own platelets into your scalp, has minimal downtime, and achieves natural-looking results.

How it Works:
PRP Hair Restoration increases blood supply to the follicle, which increases the shaft size (thickness) of the hair follicle and triggers the growth phase. The quick, in-office procedure involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using an easy three-step process:
- A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
- After ten minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn into a syringe.
- The platelets are injected to the desired areas using a small needle.
PRP treatments vary by client need. Initially, your provider may recommend a series of treatments spaced one month apart and then maintenance treatments as needed. While this is not a cure for baldness or Androgenic Alopecia, studies have shown that regular treatments can significantly slow the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and work to increase hair density.
