Experiencing hair loss or thinning? PRP therapy, available at North Scottsdale Laser & Skin Care Clinic, may be just the thing for you.

PRP Therapy Helps Hair Grow

What is PRP therapy? In this hair growth treatment, blood will be withdrawn so that it can be processed an enriched, and the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) will be injected back into the scalp. This protein helps to stimulate hair growth and will make your hair grow longer, thicker, and fuller!

How long does the treatment take? Each treatment takes about 30 minutes, and there is minimal amount of downtime. Most of our patients receive treatments once a month for the first three months, and then they receive treatments every three to six months from there. We also recommend that those who have received PRP therapy take a warm shower to stimulate blood flow to the scalp. However, you cannot use a hair dryer for a couple of days after getting PRP therapy.

Who can benefit from PRP therapy? Anyone who has experienced hair loss or hair thinning is a great candidate for PRP therapy treatments. Those who are in the early stage of the hair loss process tend to respond best to treatments.
