What Is PRP? How Does It Apply To Hair Loss Treatments?
PRP (short for platelet-rich plasma) is basically just blood that has been spun really fast in a centrifuge, a process that separates the plasma from red blood cells. Inside this plasma are small structures known as platelets, which contain growth factors that are key in the body’s wound healing process.
Once the plasma is separated, two different chemicals are added: thrombin and calcium chloride. These further increase the level of growth factors in the plasma, which is re-added to a syringe and injected into key areas of the scalp.
Over time, this can help stimulate the growth of hair follicles, reduce miniaturization (shrinking of hair follicles), and more—whether you’re a man or a woman.
What To Expect During Your Hair Loss Treatment with PRP
Prior to your PRP hair loss treatment, you’ll meet with our the friendly, helpful staff at Healing Place Medical for Functional, Cosmetic and Regenerative Medicine, who will formulate a treatment plan to meet your wants and needs.
Just prior to your PRP hair loss treatment, you’ll need to clean your scalp by washing your hair thoroughly. Also, make sure you don’t use any products to style your hair.
On the day of your hair loss treatment with PRP, we will start by using a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area. At this same time, one of the Healing Center Medical for Functional, Cosmetic, and Integrative Medicine staff will draw a sample of your blood, add the vial to a centrifuge, and then collect the platelet-rich plasma in another syringe.
Finally, the platelet-rich plasma will be injected just below the surface of the scalp. In total, the procedure likely won’t take longer than 60 to 90 minutes.
What Happens After Your PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
After Healing Place Medical has completed your PRP treatment for hair loss, you’ll be given specific instructions on how to care for your scalp in order to experience the best results.
In general, though, PRP hair loss treatments are outpatient (you can go home the same day), cause little-to-no discomfort, are minimally invasive, and require no downtime.
How Much Does a Hair Loss Treatment with PRP Cost?
Similar to most cosmetic procedures, how much your PRP hair loss treatment costs will depend on a variety of individual factors. This includes the level of thinning, whether or not you’ll be supplementing PRP with other treatments such as hair transplants, and much more.
To learn more, be sure to contact the Healing Place Medical for Functional, Cosmetic and Regenerative Medicine at 215-716-3957.
The cost of PRP hair loss treatment will vary, but to offer the best possible care for our patients, we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and financing via GreenSky.
Are PRP Hair Loss Treatments Right For You?
As we discussed above, PRP hair loss treatments come with several advantages, including no downtime, no pain or discomfort, as well as the fact that they’re minimally invasive. Other benefits include no trauma to follicles, no risk of allergic reactions or rejection (since the material is coming from your own body), and no surgical incisions.
However, there are some things to consider about a hair loss treatment with PRP. You’ll probably experience mild tenderness, redness, and swelling, and the procedure might work better for some patients than others. For example, it likely won’t be effective in completely bald areas.
