PRP Treatment for Thinning Hair

What is PRP hair regrowth treatment?

PRP hair regrowth treatment is an in-office procedure that is offered at Sobel Skin’s luxurious NYC facility. PRP stands for “platelet-rich plasma”, which refers to a concentrated solution derived from your body’s own blood. This concentrated solution contains a high-volume of platelets, which are a key element to your body’s natural healing and regeneration system. During treatment this solution is injected into the scalp, releasing platelets into the affected areas. The platelets then work to stimulate your cells to regenerate, facilitating hair growth. PRP treatment is a minimally-invasive treatment that is safe for both men and women.

What are the benefits of PRP for hair regrowth?

When used for hair loss treatment, PRP therapy can help:

  • Thicken and enhance existing hair follicles
  • Increase blood supply to the follicle
  • Trigger and maintain the growth phase
  • Decrease hair loss
  • Control hair growth cycle

How does PRP therapy work?

There are a variety of thinning hair remedies, each working in unique ways to help promote hair regrowth. 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. Most patients require only 4 treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart with occasionally touch-ups once a year. The entire procedure usually takes 30 minutes or less.

The procedure begins with a simple 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. Look no further than Dr. Sobel, an NY Magazine best dermatologist in Manhattan, to regain your hair.

PRP Treatment Before and After Results

When will I begin to see results from PRP therapy for hair loss?

The results of PRP treatment for thinning hair vary with each patient. PRP treatment is not a cure for hair loss, but it has been shown to delay the loss of hair and restore hair growth and density. Patients may be able to begin noticing hair growth improvement after one treatment, but generally, it is recommended to complete a series of treatments to achieve maximum results. Your treatment plan, including the recommended total number of treatments, will be discussed with you during your initial consultation.
