PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a minimally invasive solution for hair growth and hair loss prevention.


As we get older, visible signs of aging begin to appear, including hair loss and thinning hair. These issues affect how you look and are perceived by others.

Luckily, there are solutions. PRP is a popular treatment for hair restoration, improving hair thickness and reducing hair shedding.

Injecting platelet rich plasma stimulates hair regrowth, improving hair thickness and density so you can smile for the camera again with confidence.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a blood product that is used as an injection to increase the density, number, and thickness of hairs. Your blood is first drawn, and then using a centrifuge, we separate the red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, plasma, and other growth factors of your blood. The platelet rich plasma is then injected into your scalp in order to stimulate hair regrowth, new hair growth, and treating hair loss.

PRP therapy for hair growth has become one of the most popular innovative treatment for patients dealing with androgenic alopecia, (male-pattern hair loss). These hair loss treatments can also be used for female-pattern hair loss and thinning hair.

PRP hair restoration is a safe, natural, and simple way to improve hair growth without the need for invasive surgery or downtime.

Am I a good candidate for PRP for hair loss?

A good candidate for PRP is a male or a female who is starting to lose their hair in an aesthetically unpleasing way. 

Ideally, a doctor has evaluated to rule out other medical causes of hair loss (hypothyroidism, for example). You may have already tried (and failed) using topical treatments (such as minoxidil) or prescription medications(finasteride, for example) for hair loss.

PRP cannot make new hair grow in bald area. It is a treatment to increase the density, number, and thickness of hair that is currently there.

How many sessions are required for PRP for hair loss?

The protocol used by Dr. Moubayed involves a series of three treatments that are a month apart.

Depending on your response, maintenance sessions can be offered afterward. Each session lasts about an hour.

Are PRP injections safe for hair loss?

A platelet rich plasma treatment plan carries a very low risk of allergic reaction given that they consist of products that are drawn from your own blood.

Like any injection, the most common risks are minimal pain at the site of injection, bruising, and temporary redness. Sometimes, certain patients can suffer from a slight headache the same or the next day.

Finally, like any cosmetic procedure, there is a risk of not being satisfied with the result. For most patients that do not respond to the PRP hair restoration treatment, we can offer more invasive treatments such as hair transplantation.

Are women candidates for Platelet Rich Plasma injections as well?

Yes. Female pattern baldness exists and is classified according to the Ludwig classification. Females can benefit from PRP as well.

What happens during a hair restoration consultation?

A consultation starts with a complete questionnaire and physical examination of your scalp. Photos are taken and analyzed with your surgeon. This is an essential communication tool as some patients want changes that are not always possible with filler injections.

Then, we talk about the entire procedure, initial treatment, how many treatments needed, and recovery time needed. Dr. Moubayed takes the time to answer all questions you may have.

Patients often choose to receive their injections on the same day as the consultation.

Things You Should Know Before Hair Loss Treatment

Considering the time for the blood draw, centrifugation, and injection, the procedure lasts about an hour.

 

PRP injections are not very painful and generally do not require any type of anesthesia as they are injected using a tiny needle.

Certain patients prefer a type of local anesthesia called a scalp block where we numb your scalp completely using a series of tiny injections.

Results are variable depending on each patient. Results have shown an effect that lasts up to two years, but certain patients choose to return every six months for a maintenance treatment.
