Platelet-rich plasma for hair loss, skin rejuvenation

Are you looking to rejuvenate your skin without undergoing invasive surgery? Are you one of the millions of men or women struggling to reverse early hair loss? If you nodded yes to either of these questions, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) may be your answer to achieving natural-looking results—without the side effects or risks associated with medications or invasive procedures.

What is platelet-rich plasma?

PRP is a revolutionary method for promoting skin and hair growth. Treatment is rooted in the restorative power of blood plasma, which our board-certified dermatologists collect from you in a small amount to create a platelet-rich injectable.

Once injected into the treatment site, the platelets release growth factors that stimulate the production of collagen (for skin) or follicles (for hair).

While PRP is a newer cosmetic treatment, providers in oral surgery, reconstructive surgery, orthopedics and other fields have been using the method for years to help patients recover.

What are the benefits of platelet-rich plasma treatments?

For skin rejuvenation, PRP can:

  • Promote collagen production
  • Decrease fine lines and wrinkles
  • Minimize scars and stretch marks

For early hair loss, PRP can:

  • Increase your hair count
  • Thicken your hair
  • Lengthen the growth phase of your hair cycle

How long do platelet-rich plasma treatments take?

PRP treatments for skin rejuvenation and hair loss generally take less than 30 minutes. Three treatments spaced six weeks apart are recommended for optimal results.

Is platelet-rich plasma safe?

PRP is FDA-approved. Because the treatments use your natural blood plasma, the risks of any reactions to treatment also are limited.

Is platelet-rich plasma right for me?
