Thinning Hair? We have Answers.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration is a three-step process that uses components of your blood to restore hair growth naturally. This treatment involves drawing a small amount of your blood, processing it to extract the platelet-rich plasma, then injecting the PRP directly into the scalp.

How does the Procedure Work?

The PRP hair restoration procedure is performed as follows:

  • A small sample of blood is drawn, similar to a standard blood test.
  • The sample is spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of the blood. PRP is a highly concentrated solution containing growth factors – the naturally occurring substances that stimulate cell growth, health, and proliferation.
  • Local anesthesia is applied,
  • PRP is injected into your scalp to help restore healthy, natural hair growth.
  • Stem cells are stimulated in the inactive hair follicles, triggering new hair growth.
  • Once the injections are complete, your scalp is gently cleansed

One of the main advantages of hair restoration with PRP is the speedy treatment time and lack of any significant recovery time. Some patients like to rest for the remainder of the day, but it would simply be for your comfort and is not vital to the healing process. There are no incisions to care for, and anesthesia is not required, so you will not be left feeling foggy or disoriented. Although you will need to avoid extended periods of sun exposure, you may resume your daily routine immediately after treatment.


What does PRP do for hair growth? Does it work?

Receding hair, bald spots, and thinning hair are often unwanted effects of the aging process. There are many methods and treatments for hair restoration, but PRP is unique because it offers a natural solution to thinning hair that is both effective and minimally invasive. At The Skin Elite, we understand your frustration, and we are ready to assist you in discovering incredible results that restore your youthful appearance.

Why is hair restoration with PRP the answer for me?

PRP is highly effective in restoring natural hair growth in men and women. As the PRP is extracted from your own blood, the treatment is all-natural and requires minimal, if any, recovery time. This non-surgical procedure is suitable for almost any person who wants to ward off hair loss.

How old do you need to be to have PRP hair restoration?

Most people begin to experience hair loss in their late thirties or forties, but for some, thinning or balding occurs in their twenties. Because it triggers the body’s natural regenerative process, hair restoration with PRP is a safe and reliable method for restoring healthy hair follicles for people of any age.

Is anything preventing me from being a candidate?

Although PRP has been proven effective on almost anyone over the age of eighteen, there are a few exceptions. Certain rare medical conditions may exclude a person from treatment. If you are interested in the procedure, schedule a consultation to discover the proper procedure or combination of hair restoration procedures that will be appropriate for you.

What will I experience after my PRP hair restoration?

You will see new hair growth in the treated area for a few months following your PRP hair restoration procedure. As hair growth starts below the surface in the follicle, it may take several weeks before you notice it in the mirror. Results can vary, particularly if you are combining PRP treatment with topical creams or medications. If you would like to see new, natural hair growth, explore your treatment options with The Skin Elite.

Are there any special aftercare instructions with PRP injections?

Immediately following your treatment, you may experience some tenderness and should avoid extended sun exposure. If you are going to be outdoors, wear sunscreen or a hat to keep your scalp protected from the sun’s rays. After a brief initial healing time, you can wash and care for your hair and scalp as usual. If you are pairing your injections with other treatments, apply those as directed by our hair restoration professionals to achieve and maintain optimal results.

Will I need additional treatments?

Some patients may return for subsequent treatments every year to maintain growth in the newly-stimulated hair follicles. Our experienced staff will create a customized treatment plan to address your particular condition.
