PRP (Platelet-rich plasma) is an innovative, non-surgical procedure that is commonly used for hair loss therapy. PRP is a treatment for men and women who are experiencing hair loss.
At the Plastic Surgery Institute in Beverly Hills PRP Hair Restoration consists of the use of a patient’s own blood plasma for its regenerative benefits as a remedy for hair loss.
The rejuvenating benefits of platelet rich plasma have been shown to effectively restore injured or otherwise damaged soft tissue within the body, and is used in cosmetic treatment methods for both hair loss and aging skin. It is an especially effective treatment for androgenic alopecia, which is notoriously difficult to treat and typically causes hair loss on the crown of the head.
PRP Hair Restoration is a convenient therapy for hair loss as the treatment itself is short. However, several treatments are usually needed to achieve desired results. There is no downtime associated with PRP Hair Restoration, and side effects are minimal.
During PRP Hair Restoration Beverly Hills patient's own platelets are utilized to revitalize hair follicles within the scalp. The process involves drawing a patient’s blood and then spinning it in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the remaining blood. This process concentrates the platelets by 16 times. The platelets serve as the body’s natural response to damaged tissue. The regenerative properties of platelets repair old cells as well as promote new growth. This enriched blood is then injected into the scalp or treatment area, which stimulates stem cells in hair follicle growth.

PRP will stimulate stem cells of the hair follicles to promote growth over the next few weeks. Women and men tend to notice results over the next month or two. A series of 2-6 treatments is often necessary, and consists of several consecutive monthly treatments followed by treatments every 3 to 6 months.

This treatment for hair loss is shown to be more effective than many alternative methods, though there is some variance in efficacy and results may be influenced by the patient’s platelet levels within their blood. For most patients, PRP Hair Restoration results in 30% to 40% hair regrowth.
PRP Hair Restoration boosts hair growth for four to six weeks. Monthly treatments are typically required for at least 3 months, and then every 3 to 6 months after that.
Side effects caused by PRP treatment are itching, headache, swelling, sensitivity of the scalp, and some pain and bleeding at injection sites. These issues should resolve themselves within two to three weeks of treatment. PRP Hair Restoration presents no risk of communicable disease or allergic reaction to the injections, as the patient’s own blood is used. However, there is a potential for adverse reaction to the anesthetic. Risks associated with injections of any kind include infection, damage to blood vessels, nerve damage, scar tissue, and calcification at injection sites.
Patients should expect to require annual treatments following initial treatment series, though the individual needs of each patient may vary.
Patients may experience some discomfort at injection sites and on the scalp, as well as swelling, headaches, or itching as a result of treatment. There may also be some bruising, but it will likely disappear within one or two weeks.
Diet and lifestyle choices can impact your PRP Hair Restoration results. Regular scalp massages and nutritional factors such as protein and iron levels may impact hair growth.
Men and women of any age who are dealing with hair loss may benefit from PRP Hair Restoration. PRP treatment may not be suitable for patients with specific health issues including, but not limited to, low platelet count, cancer, metabolic disorder, chronic disease or infections, or other blood-related issues. It is always important to discuss your medical history and current medications with your doctor when considering any injectable treatment.
As with any treatment which stimulates hair growth, some shedding may occur in the first few weeks following treatment. This should subside within a couple of months. Some patients may experience an increase in hair loss 12 to 16 months after treatment, as the treatment wears off. However, re-treatment is shown to prevent and reverse any additional hair loss.
