How does PRP for hair loss in Rochester work?
PRP treatments use growth factors in your own blood to offer powerful restorative benefits for the skin, joints, body tissues, and even hair follicles. With a simple, in-office blood draw, we spin your blood in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma from the rest. We then load this “liquid gold” into syringes and inject your plasma directly into your scalp, with absolutely no risk of allergic reaction, since we’re using your own blood. The growth factors in the PRP stimulate hair follicles to enter the growth phase and replenish your lost hair.
First, we gently draw a vial of blood from your arm and apply a topical numbing cream to the injection site(s) to ensure your comfort during the injections.
Activate the PRP
The blood spins in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the blood. The white blood cells within the plasma hold a vital amount of natural growth factors that stimulate hair growth.
The PRP is injected back into the treatment areas with a thin needle to encourage new hair growth. Most patients require a series of treatments to achieve their desired results.
Benefits of PRP for hair loss in Rochester
Non-surgical hair loss treatment
Platelet rich plasma, or PRP for hair loss, is a completely non-surgical procedure, with no downtime, anesthesia, expensive surgery, or knives. This treatment also allows you to stop wasting your time and money with oral and topical medications that ultimately provide underwhelming results.
Using Your Body’s Healing Power
Your body has powerful restorative abilities, and PRP for hair loss helps us unlock those abilities. Not only can we re-activate follicles where your hair had completely stopped growing, we can also thicken and reinforce your existing hair. After a series of monthly injections, you will notice new hair beginning to grow.
Noticeable results can be seen after 3-4 PRP for hair loss treatments. For prime results, these treatments must be kept up with every 6-12 months
