Can PRP Reverse Pattern Baldness in Men and Women?
At Kevin R. Hanz, M.D., Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we use platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to help treat male and female pattern baldness in Dallas, TX. This nonsurgical hair restoration treatment uses exosomes sourced from bone marrow concentrate, which help your body to grow new hair. These exosomes release naturally from a cell that cannot be properly replicated. This helps you to be able to grow hair on your own again after treatment. Dr. Kevin Hanz strengthens his patients’ hair, which leads to thicker and longer locks in the future.
What is pattern baldness?
Pattern baldness is hair loss affecting the top and front of the scalp in both men and women. When it comes to male pattern baldness, this is usually the loss of hair on the crown of the scalp, a receding hairline, or sometimes both. For women, this leads to thinning hair or bald spots.
Dr. Hanz uses PRP therapy to treat a variety of conditions for his patients, including:
Male and female pattern baldness

PRP treatment for baldness
PRP treatment is a natural and safe way to restore hair follicles, which helps prevent hair loss or thinning hair. It uses your own healing to promote collagen regrowth. This is hypoallergenic, which makes it ideal for most of our patients at our Dallas, TX office. Our team has learned that it can take from 4 – 6 months for a patient’s hair follicles to fully activate and provide the results you’re looking for. However, your results will be long-lasting.
How we perform PRP
First, Dr. Hanz will begin PRP therapy by drawing a small amount of blood from you. Next, we place your blood in a centrifuge to isolate platelets from your blood sample for PRP treatment. This platelet concentration is then injected into treatment areas with a very fine needle, which limits any discomfort. The entire process is fast, taking 15 – 30 minutes, depending on your hair loss. After treatment, you can resume your daily activities.
After your treatment, it’s important that you don’t take any anti-inflammatory medication as it can interfere with your natural healing process. You may have to receive PRP therapy multiple times before you see significant results. What Dr. Hanz loves most about PRP therapy is that there is no risk of allergy, hypersensitivity, or a foreign-body reaction for his patients in Dallas, TX.
