What is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair restoration?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair is the innovative, non-surgical procedure that is commonly used for hair loss therapy. PRP is a treatment for women or men patients that are experiencing hair loss. It involves a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp. This treatment has a proven record of high potential in hair restoration as it uses the natural growth factors of the body to revitalize damaged hair follicles providing hair re-growth in areas of the scalp that have received the PRP treatment.
Many people are concerned about thinning hair and loss of hair on areas of their head whether caused by the aging process or various health conditions and medications. If you are one of them, you may also be reading and hearing how our own blood can help restore a youthful appearance to skin, and interestingly, about the significant results PRP is achieving to promote hair growth and preventing further hair loss.

PRP hair restoration naturally reverses thinning hair by increasing hair thickness and stimulating a healthy growth of hair follicles. Recent scientific research and technology has revealed new understandings of wound and tissue healing as it relates to hair loss and restoration. As a result of these scientific studies, PRP is recognized as an all-natural, autologous medical procedure performed in the medical office for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation. We are also using PRP and microneedling of the face for its anti-aging benefits for a healthy and natural skin glow.
