Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss

If you are experiencing hair loss or have noticeably thinning hair, we encourage you to consider undergoing treatment with Platelet Rich Plasma at our Montgomery County dermatology practice. PRP is a minimally invasive treatment that is capable of halting hair loss and stimulating the regrowth of hair. Dr. Margo Weishar, a highly experienced, double-board certified physician, has helped her patients achieve remarkable results with this powerful hair loss treatment. If you’re ready to learn more, we encourage you to contact our office today – we are easily accessible to patients in Montgomery County and Bucks County.

What is PRP?

PRP is highly concentrated plasma from your own blood. It contains a high concentration of platelets, which is the component of your blood that is rich in growth factors, which are essential in the body’s cell production, growth and wound healing process.

PRP Therapy for Hair Loss

Androgenic alopecia, commonly referred to as male or female patterned baldness, is a chronic hair loss disorder affecting males and females. PRP injection therapy has shown to be effective in treating both male and female hair loss without major adverse effects and little to no downtime.

What to expect during the treatment

PRP therapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure performed in our office. Blood is drawn from the patient and prepared and then injected back into the scalp to the affected areas. The platelets released contained growth factors, which work to stimulate stem cell proliferation and hair growth.

Does it hurt?

There is minimal discomfort at the injection sites, which subsides with the completion of the treatment. We have a variety of ways to keep you comfortable and minimize any pain or discomfort during your treatment. The treated areas may feel sore to touch following the procedure.

When do I see the results?

The results of PRP vary with each patient. PRP is not a cure for hair loss but has been shown to delay the loss of hair and restore growth and density. Patients may see hair growth and improvement after one treatment but it is recommended to do a series of up to six treatments a month apart. We will evaluate you after each treatment to determine if PRP is an effective therapy for you.

PRP Therapy with Microneedling

PRP can be used in combination with microneedling for a synergistic effect. Prior to your microneedling treatment, your blood will be drawn and prepared and then applied to your face during your microneedling treatment. The addition of the PRP during this treatment will boost collagen stimulation and the wound healing process leading you to faster and enhanced results!
