What is PRP?
PRP is a natural treatment that separates growth factors from your blood, that can be injected into an area of the body that needs collagen or tissue repair. Platelets are cells in blood that help tissue heal and grow new cells.
PRP is an extraordinary treatment because it uses your body’s own healing power to jump start tissue healing and transformation, as well as collagen regrowth. The procedure is simple, non-surgical, and completely hypoallergenic.
PRP has been known to be used in the face for facial rejuvention, in the scalp for hair restoration and in the vaginal area for woman's health. Learn more about how PRP can be beneficial.

How It Works
A treating physician will start the treatment by painlessly drawing a small amount of blood from your arm. The blood is then centrifuged to isolate platelets from the rest of the blood. The concentrations of platelets are then injected into a treated area using a very fine needle to prevent discomfort. The procedure is quick (15 minutes total), relatively painless, and requires no post procedure care or time off from daily events.
What to expect after the treatment
The procedure takes 30 minutes depending on amount of hair loss. Patients are advised not to take any anti-inflammatory medication since it may interfere in the natural healing process of PRP. Patients generally have to receive this treatment multiple times before they can see any results. PRP does not pose any danger of allergy, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reaction and it is a safe choice for many patients.
Can Be Used To Treat Issues Including But Not Limited To
Hair loss from Alopecia, stress, or aging
Thinning hair from medical conditions, stress, or aging
Exosomes for Hair Loss
The science of hair restoration is constantly emerging. The newest technology lies in Exosomes. It consists of a serum that includes growth factors, messenger RNA, micro RNA, and cytokines. When injected into the scalp it stimulates the body to grow new hair. Exosomes differ from PRP in that they contain higher concentrations of growth factors in addition to the above, however, they are lab derived.
PRP Hair Restoration FAQ
Is PRP hair restoration painful?
No. While some patients may feel some slight discomfort during the injections, most simply feel pressure. Additionally, the procedure usually only takes about 30 minutes to perform, making it incredibly tolerable.
How soon after PRP hair restoration are results visible?
About 4 – 6 weeks after your procedure, you should begin to notice your hair looking fuller and more healthy. The final results, however, may not be visible for around 3 – 4 months from your last appointment.
What is the difference between PRP hair restoration and a hair transplant?
PRP hair restoration injects growth factors found within your own blood into your scalp to encourage growth from your hair follicles. A hair transplant, on the other hand, removes healthy hair follicles from the back of your head and places them on top of your head in order to replace the old, damaged follicles.
