PRP For Hair Loss
After a thorough examination to determine the kind of hair loss you may have, our board-certified dermatologists may recommend Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. The procedure involves placing blood drawn from the patient into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma, which is rich in growth factors. This plasma is then injected into the patient’s hair follicles to stimulate natural hair growth. It is a quick procedure with no downtime. PRP has been used in orthopedics and dentistry for many years, and studies are now indicating that it is a safe, effective hair loss treatment for certain hair loss patients, including those with hereditary hair loss (male or female pattern baldness). Only board-certified dermatologists have the medical training to determine if you are a good candidate for PRP.
