What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration therapy utilizes your body’s own growth factors to “wake up” dormant hair cells and kick-start brand-new hair growth. Treatments consist of three parts: a blood draw, a centrifuge spin, and injections into the scalp.

About Growth Factors

The breakdown of growth factors is as follows: our blood contains plasma, which contains platelets, which contains dozens of growth factors. These growth factors, when injected into the scalp, stimulate cell renewal and increase blood flow to the area. This results in the dormant hair follicles beginning a new active growth phase. PRP hair restoration patients often see new hair growth as quickly as six months.

What Causes Hair Loss?

Hair loss has many origins. It can be a result of genetics, stress, hormonal fluctuations, certain medications, scalp disorders, diet, trichotillomania, and even some types of hairstyles. 

Also contributing to hair loss are local and systemic problems such as anemia, nutritional abnormalities, autoimmune conditions, and hypothyroidism.

Before & After PRP Hair Restoration

What to Expect During a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment

As mentioned above, PRP hair restoration treatments consist of three parts: the blood draw, the centrifuge, and the injections. 

Before treatment, we will cleanse and numb your scalp. We will also take some blood from you (about 1-2 ounces), and this blood will be put inside of a centrifuge in order to separate the plasma from the red blood cells and purify it. After this, the purified plasma will be placed inside of a syringe so that it can be injected into the dormant hair follicles. You may feel some pressure during the injections. 

A PRP hair restoration treatment in Bee Cave at Modern Women's Health takes approximately 60-90 minutes. During your consultation with us, we will let you know how many treatment sessions you will need.

Downtime and Results

Most patients can go right back to their regular day after a PRP hair restoration treatment. However, there may be some soreness, swelling, bleeding, bruising, itching, and/or scabs in the treatment zone. You may also experience a headache. 

It’s important for those considering PRP hair restoration therapy to be aware that this is not a quick fix. PRP hair restoration is a commitment, and multiple treatments may be required to get the desired results — and to maintain them.

Most patients do notice more hair growth at the three-month mark, with hair that is often denser and darker. Healthy, regular hair growth should be happening at 6-12 months.
