Hair Thinning in Men and Women

What is it?

PRP is an in-office procedure is done nearby at Sobel Skin’s luxurious NYC facility and great solution for both men and women experiencing hair thinning. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a product of the blood. Being a derivative of one’s own blood, platelet-rich plasma is non-allergic and will not cause adverse reactions. Healthy hair follicles grow healthy hair. It’s that simple.

What it does?

  • Thickens and enhances existing hair follicles
  • Increases blood supply to the follicle
  • Triggers and maintains the growth phase
  • Decreases hair loss
  • Controls hair growth cycle

How it works?

PRP Therapy works on the basis of utilizing restoring growth factors within the patient’s own blood after injecting them back into the scalp tissue. When introduced into hair follicles, in particular, the increase in cellular activity may usher in a phase of active hair growth, thus promoting healthier, thicker hair.

The procedure begins with a blood draw in order to obtain the specialized cells needed for hair growth. The small amount of blood that is drawn is spun in a high-speed instrument to extract plasma from other blood cells.
