Hair loss is a common condition that's experienced by millions of people worldwide. From male pattern baldness to hair thinning in women, hair loss can drastically affect your self-esteem, make it more difficult to go outside, and generally have a negative impact on your quality of life.

PRP therapy for hair restoration is built on the regenerative capabilities of platelet rich plasma. It's a special serum that's drawn from a patient's blood, processed, then re-injected back in the treated area to rejuvenate it.
Normally, your platelets are only activated in the case of injury, where they help repair a damaged blood vessel and assist in wound healing. But by extracting it from your blood, filtering out white and red blood cells, it can be injected back into your body to rejuvenate the cells in that area.
By using your body's own cells, PRP hair therapy increases the potency of its effects and decreases the risk that it'll be rejected by your body, unlike other hair loss treatments. It's also minimally invasive compared to other treatments like hair transplantation surgery.
PRP use for hair restoration is a fairly new treatment; while PRP injections have been a mainstay in the field of sports medicine, it's only recently that the benefits of platelet rich plasma have expanded to cosmetic use.
PRP treatment is used directly on the scalp, in several sessions to ensure that the area is saturated with platelets so the hair rejuvenation process can begin. You can expect to see results after a few sessions, but since everyone is different, you may get your desired results earlier or later than expected.
Most patients report seeing favorable results after a few months of treatment. PRP hair treatments may improve hair thickness, make the hair shaft more resilient against wear and tear, and overall improve the appearance of hair. Its effects on conditions like alopecia still need further study, but preliminary results from patients are promising enough that many cosmetic practices are starting to recommend PRP therapy as a potential treatment.
One important thing that you should keep in mind if you're considering getting PRP therapy for hair loss is that your provider should be experienced in PRP injections. Not only does this guarantee that you'll get better results, but it also ensures that you have support in case you develop side effects.
Even if PRP treatments for the hair show promising results, it's also important to have a licensed provider to make sure that the treatment goes as intended. It's especially important for people who are looking to use PRP hair restoration treatments as support for other hair restoration treatments.
A: Most side effects from PRP therapy come from the actual injection itself, not the PRP treatment. These side effects are usually mild and resolve within one to three days after treatment. Other side effects may include an allergic reaction to the anesthetic used during the procedure, but this is quite rare.
A: Almost anyone can benefit from PRP therapy, but it works particularly well for people who are healthy and have no pre-existing conditions. A general rule of thumb is that if you don’t have any problems with your platelet count or have a history of alcohol consumption, you’re a good fit for PRP therapy.
A: The prices for PRP hair therapy will depend on how many treatment sessions you need, as well as where you can get them. They’re not covered by medical insurance, though some practices offer discounts. On average, a PRP injection usually costs around $400 per treatment.
