    By utilizing your own blood, PRP stimulates hair follicles in the scalp to produce a higher quantity and quality of hair. This is one of the many treatment options Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, or Dr. Montague can discuss with you during a consultation at our world-renowned hair restoration clinic. We take a comprehensive approach to hair loss that includes surgical and nonsurgical options to accommodate different preferences, lifestyles, and concerns.

    How PRP Works for Hair Loss

    The blood contains red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. PRP is plasma with a higher-than-normal concentration of platelets. Injected directly into thinning areas of the scalp, growth factors in PRP address hair loss by:

    • Improving the quality and quantity of hair in active follicles
    • Stimulating dying hair follicles back to the growth phase
    • Improving hair transplant results by accelerating the healing process and helping newly transplanted hair follicles establish a blood supply

    Results vary for each patient; however, PRP therapy has been found to be effective in a variety of medical procedures.

    Benefits of PRP Hair Loss Injections

    This all-natural, autologous procedure provides people struggling with hair loss many benefits, including:

    • Growing thicker, healthier hair
    • Slowing down hair loss significantly
    • Supporting faster, more robust hair transplant results 

    Since PRP is generated from the patient’s own blood, it’s considered a safe, natural treatment option free from the risks associated with synthetic chemicals or drugs.

    Candidates for PRP Hair Loss Treatments

    Ideal candidates for PRP are adults in good health who are experiencing early hair loss. PRP is similar to fertilizer for crops. It works great if the hair is still there, but it can’t improve the growth of hair that doesn’t exist. If you have significant hair loss, you probably need a hair transplant. During your consultation, we will review your health history, explore your history of hair thinning or hair loss, and determine whether you are a candidate for PRP based on this information. If you are a candidate, you will meet with one of our Patient Consultants, who will review the cost of the procedure and schedule a date for your first PRP procedure.

    Your PRP Procedure

    PRP treatments are nonsurgical office procedures that are safe for you to drive yourself to and from. On the day of the procedure, we take blood from your arm, similar to having lab work done. Next, the blood is spun down in a centrifuge using the EmCyte® system to separate the platelets from the other blood components. Your provider then numbs the scalp in the thinning area with a local anesthetic and injects the PRP directly into the thinning areas of the scalp.

    Recovery After a PRP Treatment for Hair Loss

    No downtime is required after a PRP treatment. Once the local anesthetic wears off, which may take a few hours, the scalp may be slightly tender, but patients do not experience significant discomfort after the procedure. You should hold off on exercise for the rest of the day.

    PRP for Hair Loss FAQ

    Can PRP be combined with hair transplant surgery?

    Yes, we often use PRP to supplement FUT and FUE hair transplants as it stimulates hair follicles and, in turn, encourages new hair growth. During your consultation, Dr. Quatela, Dr. Lee, or Dr. Montague will advise on your best treatment plan.

    How many PRP treatments will I need?

    The number of treatments depends on the amount of loss and your desired results. PRP can be performed multiple times every couple of months or as a 1-time treatment. At the Quatela Center, we typically perform a series of 4 PRP treatments over the course of a year and then evaluate the results. 

    When will I see the results?

    PRP, like many hair loss treatments, takes patience. We expect to see a noticeable decline in hair loss right away, followed by a gradual increase in overall hair growth. The hair follicles, which are at different phases at any point in time, need time to go through their growth cycles.
