PRP Therapy for Hair Loss


If you have certain types of hair loss, platelet rich plasma therapy may help. It uses parts of your own blood to help stimulate your follicles. These are the structures in your skin that grow hair. PRP therapy may be able to slow hair loss and support new hair growth.

Creating the Mix

The process begins with a sample of your blood. It is spun around in a centrifuge. This separates it into platelets, plasma, and red and white blood cells. The platelets are then concentrated and mixed with some of the plasma. This mixture is called "platelet rich plasma."


The doctor injects this into the balding areas of your scalp. It bathes your follicles in growth factors. It helps improve blood circulation in the tissues of your scalp to support hair growth.


After the injections, you can go home and resume normal activities. For best results, you'll return regularly for more injections.
