Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: A NON-SURGICAL option to fight Hair Loss in men and women
• PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma uses your own blood platelets to stimulate hair growth where you are balding or thinning. It also thickens your existing hair.
Many people know Platelet Rich Plasma as the part of the blood that helps your body recover from injuries. Platelet Rich Plasma can harness the power to promote hair growth when follicles are present. These quick and affordable injections take less than an hour and can be performed any day as this treatment does not require any downtime and have no noted side effects as the blood is derived from the patient’s own body.
• A small amount of your own blood is extracted (blood draw in our office) and then spun in a machine called a centrifuge. This machine separates red blood cells, white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. After the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is extracted and the scalp is numbed, Dr. Slater injects the Plasma into the areas where the thinning hair is evident.
• Platelet Rich Plasma can promote hair growth when follicles are present. If the follicles are damaged or simply weak this treatment can improve hair loss dramatically.
*People with extreme hair loss or non-existent follicles are generally not candidates for Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is offered at our Hair Restoration Center in Buckhead-Atlanta in addition to Neograft Hair Restoration.
Platelet Rich Plasma injections for Hair loss can also be useful when performed in conjunction with FUE Hair Restoration can improve graft survival rate after the Hair Transplant is performed.
Hair Loss can affect Men & Women of all ethnicities!
We have found that Platelet Rich Plasma accelerates the transition of the hair follicle from the dormant state back to the active growing state.
For the last decade, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy has proven effective as a stand-alone treatment for men and women with specific types of hair loss.
