      PRP (platelet-rich plasma) Therapy

      Hair Loss Treatment

      PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy is a medical treatment used in orthopedics, sports medicine, dermatology, and aesthetics. The procedure involves extracting a small amount of the patient’s blood, which is then processed to concentrate the platelets and growth factors. These platelets help in tissue repair and regeneration. Once the PRP is prepared, it is injected into the targeted area of the body to promote healing and stimulate the body’s natural regenerative processes. 

       

      PRP injections for hair loss have been increasingly utilized in cases of pattern hair loss, which affects both men and women. The PRP, rich in growth factors and platelets, is injected into the scalp at the areas experiencing hair loss or thinning. PRP helps with hair loss by stimulating the activity of hair follicles, promoting hair growth and thickening of existing hair. It also encourages the regeneration of hair follicles, leading to improved hair follicle health and function.

       

      Before proceeding with PRP injections, ensure you have been appropriately diagnosed with the specific type of alopecia you have. PRP injections are generally more effective for pattern hair loss than other forms of alopecia. While PRP skin treatment for hair loss shows promise and is considered relatively safe, individual results may vary. Multiple sessions are typically required, and managing expectations is essential as hair regrowth may not be significant for everyone. It is crucial to consult with our providers to determine if PRP is suitable based on the specific type and severity of hair loss. While PRP is considered safe, there can be mild side effects like temporary pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site. It is crucial to consult with our professionals to know these possibilities.

      Initial Consultation

      Dr. Akladios will go over your medical history and conditions at the initial treatment consultation to ensure optimal results keeping in mind your safety and comfort.

      Frequently Asked Questions
      (FAQ)

      PRP hair treatment is a therapeutic option for hair loss that uses a patient's own blood to stimulate hair growth potentially. Similar to PRP facials, this procedure leverages the growth factors found in platelets to encourage the healing and regeneration of hair follicles. 

       

      The concept behind PRP hair treatment is that the high concentration of growth factors in the PRP can stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase, improving hair density and promoting thicker hair growth. It's commonly used to treat various types of alopecia, particularly androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness).

      PRP uses the patient's own blood, which reduces the risk of allergic reactions or serious side effects. Common side effects include mild pain at the injection site, scalp tenderness, swelling, and in some cases, headache.
