For patients seeking a non-surgical approach to hair restoration, PRP injections offer a viable way to restore the hair follicles and jumpstart new hair growth. PRP is a blood product with immense healing qualities contained in vital “growth factors”. The substance is used both medically and cosmetically to enhance the quality of life.

Am I A Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration? 

PRP is generally safe and effective for all patients. However, there are a few factors that may influence your candidacy. These include the following:

  • Pregnancy
  • An excess of scar tissue
  • Blood disorders

Dr. Shah will conduct a thorough, detailed consultation process to ensure PRP injections are the best option for you. Those with more advanced hair loss may better qualify to undergo a hair transplant procedure.

What Is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, a blood product derived from the body. PRP contains growth factors that can help to heal and fortify the skin, including the scalp. When injected, PRP can reawaken inactivated hair follicles, jumpstarting the hair growth process. PRP injections provide patients with an excellent alternative to hair transplant methods, which can be time-consuming, uncomfortable, and costly.

What Is The Procedure Like? 

During a PRP hair restoration session, blood is drawn from the patient’s arm and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the PRP. Dr. Shah can then inject the PRP substance into the scalp strategically, much in the same way that dermal fillers are used. The treatment is rapid and does not call for any discomfort or downtime the way that several other hair restoration methods do. 

What Can I Expect After PRP Injections?

Most clients require several appointments in order to obtain their ideal hair regrowth goals. This typically translates to a visit once a month for 4-6 months, depending on the patient’s reaction to the treatment. The biggest improvement usually occurs a few months after the first injections. Once the hair shows signs of regeneration, the patient can visit the office twice a year to maintain their results.
