What is PRP?

PRP is a form of regenerative medicine created from a sample of your own blood. Your blood contains many components, including:

  • Plasma (liquid)
  • Red blood cells
  • White blood cells
  • Platelets

When you have an injury, you may be aware that the platelets in your blood stop the bleeding by forming a blood clot. But these small cells also contain proteins, growth factors, and stem cells that initiate healing. 

PRP contains a high concentration of platelets and has amazing healing and regenerative properties that rebuild everything from joints to hair to skin. 

How does PRP for hair loss work?

PRP for hair loss and hair restoration is a viable, cutting-edge solution with little to no side effects or downtime. When injected into your scalp, the stem cells and healing properties in PRP prolong the growing phase of your hair cycle. 

The growth factors in PRP also stimulate your dormant hair follicles to resume hair growth or create new hair follicles. 

What can I expect during PRP for hair loss treatment?

Dr. Miller-Thrasher is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who develops personalized treatment plans for managing your hair loss. She reviews the details of your plan at your consultation so you know what to expect. 

She performs your PRP for hair loss at the office. Initially, she draws a sample of blood from your arm. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the components, including the layer of PRP. Once your PRP is ready, she injects it into specific areas of your scalp.

How many PRP for hair loss treatments do I need?

Because hair grows in cycles, Dr. Miller-Thrasher recommends a series of PRP treatments to get the best results. 

The number of treatments depends on the severity of your hair loss. She may suggest monthly PRP injections for the first three months, then continued injections every 3-4 months for up to two years.

You may notice more hair growth in the treated areas within the first three months.
