PRP HAIR RESTORATION

Tampa’s Most Experienced PRP Hair Restoration Center

WHAT IS PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has a concentrated source of growth factors that aid in the healing process and promote cell regeneration. The treatment is commonly used for hair loss to replenish damaged hair follicles and stimulate new growth.

PRP PROCEDURE & RECOVERY TIME

PRP hair treatment is a non-surgical, therapeutic procedure that can last up to 1 hour per session. Since the non-surgical treatment is minimally invasive and substantially aids in the healing process, there is no downtime after the procedure. In fact, Tampa Bay Hair Restoration actually uses PRP during more invasive hair transplant procedures to speed up the healing process and recovery time.

COST OF PRP INJECTIONS

The cost of platelet-rich plasma injections is dependent on the patient’s hair restoration needs / current stage of hair loss. In order to get an accurate pricing quote for this specific procedure, please fill out the contact form below. PRP is included at no extra charge when used in addition with other hair transplant procedures.

PRP HAIR GROWTH RESULTS

Platelet-rich plasma hair treatment promotes new follicle growth and stops the further effects of the hair loss cycle from continuing. Patients can begin seeing new hair growth anywhere from 2 to 3 months after the PRP hair treatment has been administered. The most noticeable results are seen from months 6 through 12.

PRP HAIR GROWTH Treatment

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become increasingly popular over the last few years, especially in hair restoration. PRP is a non-surgical, therapeutic treatment that offers many benefits to patients suffering from hair loss. The treatment has shown incredible results in healing damaged hair follicles and stimulating new growth. It can be used during and after hair transplant procedures to preserve the hair follicles during transplantation and enhance tissue repair post-surgery.

Tampa Bay Hair Restoration was the first medical center in Florida to utilize platelet-rich plasma and stem cells as a treatment for hair loss. The leading hair regeneration surgeon at the center, Dr. Michael Markou, has been performing hair transplants using PRP since 2009. He has completed years of research on the treatment and has analyzed the many positive effects associated with using it. Dr. Markou uses PRP along with other hair restoration treatments to provide the most optimal and natural-looking hair growth results for his patients.

Benefits of PRP Treatment for Hair Loss:

  • Non-surgical treatment
  • Minimally invasive and virtually painless
  • Repairs damaged hair follicles
  • Enhances the healing process
  • Regenerates new growth
  • Stabilizes the hair loss cycle
  • Used with hair transplant procedures to promote healing
  • No recovery time

What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma is blood plasma that has a concentrated source of autologous platelets. These platelets are comprised of many different growth factors that substantially aid in the healing process and accelerate new cell growth. Recent studies have shown that these growth factors not only promote the regrowth of dormant hair follicles, but also help fight further hair loss from occurring.

PRP Injections for New Hair Growth

The PRP used in hair restoration is known as “autologous,” which simply means that it is taken from the patient’s own blood through a simple blood test. The plasma is produced by drawing 60 cubic centimeters of the patient’s blood. On average, a person has roughly 5,000 cubic centimeters of blood. So a very small amount is required for the procedure. Once drawn, the blood will then be placed into a centrifuge – which is a machine that will separate the different densities within a liquid.

Blood is derived of white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The centrifuge spins the blood at a rapid speed causing the platelets, growth factors, and white blood cells to be separated from the rest of the blood product. This is then placed into a very thin syringe and injected into the patient’s scalp. PRP injections are minimally invasive and virtually painless. However, local anesthesia can be used to ensure no discomfort for the patient throughout the PRP procedure.

How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Work?

The platelets are derived of potent growth factors that assist in the regeneration and healing process. These growth factors work by stimulating dormant hair follicles into the anagen phase of the hair cycle (growth cycle). Once certain components of PRP are activated, they will begin tissue repair and accelerate the healing capabilities even further. This will aid in hair regrowth as well as prevent further hair loss from continuing. Due to the effective results from PRP therapy, it is also commonly used in a variety of other specialties, including the treatment of sports injuries and arthritis.

The Results

The platelet-rich plasma hair treatment takes approximately an hour. Depending on which stage of hair loss the patient is in, multiple sessions may be recommended in order to achieve the most optimal hair growth results. If additional sessions are needed, the treatment will be administered again in 6 months. On average, patients begin to see new growth within 2 to 3 months of the PRP treatment. The most noticeable results will occur between 6 to 12 months.

Am I a Candidate for PRP?

PRP therapy is ideal for both men and women suffering from thinning hair or beginning to notice hair loss. Patients that have shown the greatest regrowth results are those with low-quality hair growth or those with small areas affected by hair loss conditions, such as androgenic alopecia, male pattern baldness, and female pattern baldness. PRP injections are not recommended for those who have gone completely bald. The PRP can only stimulate existing hair follicles to the growth phase rather than formulate entirely new follicles.
