PRP Hair Restoration

PRP, platelet rich plasma, provides an effective, natural remedy for hair restoration. These injections help mitigate excessive hair loss and promote new hair growth. During this treatment, blood is drawn and spun down, then the “liquid gold” is injected into the scalp.

What to Expect

RESULTS: It takes 3 months to start seeing results.
NUMBER OF TREATMENTS:A series of 3-4 treatments are needed. After the series is completed, maintenance treatments are recommended every six months to maintain results.
RECOVERY: Tenderness and redness in the injection sites is normal. Little to no downtime is needed post-treatment.
PAIN: Topical numbing cream is applied prior to treatment.



PRP and PRF are both platelet-based injections used to correct many difference concerns such as fine lines, skin texture, and even hair loss. The question arises: What is the difference, and which is better for me?

PRF is the second generation of platelet-based injections. It is most densely packed with growth factors than PRP, and is more autologous than PRP (meaning, from oneself, being completely natural). There are zero additives to the PRF. PRP has a couple additives to the mixture to help form the fibrin matrix and keep the blood from clotting. With that said, due to the autologous nature of PRF, there are some restrictions on who could get this treatment. Any patient on vitamin K, hormone therapy, high-fat diets, or who smoke are not suitable candidates for PRF and should continue with treatments using PRP.

While these injections each have their own pros and cons, both are fantastic treatments. Consult with our injectors to see which would be right for you.
