What is Platelet-Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance created from a sample of your own blood. It contains a high concentration of the body's naturally occurring growth factors that are used for healing and tissue regeneration.

To make PRP, a sample of your blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge, separating the platelets from the other components in your blood. This serum is then used for the treatment.

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration is a nonsurgical treatment for hair loss. When injected into your scalp, the high concentration of growth factors in PRP reactivates your dormant hair follicles, encouraging them to resume growth, restoring your naturally healthy, thick hair.

Am I a Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

If your hair loss is in the early stages, meaning that your hair thinning started within the past few years, then you're a candidate for PRP hair restoration. It's harder to reactivate hair follicles that have been dormant for several years.

PRP hair restoration benefits men and women struggling with hair loss from a wide range of causes, including:

  • Male pattern baldness
  • Female pattern baldness
  • Stress-induced hair loss
  • Traction alopecia (hairstyle-related hair loss)
  • Medication-related hair loss
  • Hair loss from nutritional deficiencies

However, PRP hair restoration isn't the right treatment for everyone. If you take blood thinners, you may not get the results you want because of how the medication interferes with the action of the platelets in the PRP.

There's no age limit for PRP hair restoration, but treatment works best during the first few years of your hair loss.

What Happens During PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration is an in-office treatment that has been proven to effectively strengthen and restore hair. You should wash your hair before your session and avoid using hair products like hairspray or gel.

After obtaining a sample of blood to make the PRP, the PRP is injected into the areas of your scalp where your hair is thinning.

There's no downtime following PRP hair restoration. However, you may experience some discomfort at the site of your injections.

You need a series of treatments to get the best results. Dr. Kurzman recommends monthly injections for the first three months, with your fourth injection about 4 months after your first session. Repeat PRP hair restoration every 6 months to maintain the best results.

For best results, additional treatments such as the use of topical or oral minoxidil as well as finasteride for men are recommended. Additionally, Votesse capsules, available at Dr Kurzman’s office, are beneficial.

When Can I Expect to See Results from PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration results vary, but you may see new hair growth about 3-6 months after you start treatment.
