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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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!
