Combat Hair Loss with PRP Therapy

What is PRP therapy?
PRP therapy, one of the newest procedures to treat hair loss, involves the withdrawal of blood so that it can be processed and enriched. By enriching the blood so that only platelet-rich plasma (PRP) remains and injecting it into the scalp, the protein that stimulates hair growth will be able to work its magic.
Is it safe?
Yes, PRP therapy is safe! This non-surgical procedure is simple and fast. The treatment only takes about an hour, and results are natural, noticeable, and beautiful.
Who can benefit from PRP therapy?
Most people who are experiencing thinning hair can benefit from this treatment—both men and women alike! However, patients with histories of heavy smoking or drug use, and patients with certain medical diagnoses, such as chronic diseases or cancer, should not explore this option of reversing hair loss.
When will I notice results?
Most people start to notice results after a month or two. Maintenance injections may be necessary every three to four months in order to ensure that your can continue to grow.
Can I pursue other procedures simultaneously?
Yes, of course! Whether these other procedures include other ways to grow your hair back, or whether these treatments include ways to improve the look and feel of your skin, you can incorporate other treatments into your anti-aging routine.
