What is PRP therapy?

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP therapy) is a nonsurgical treatment that has shown promise in slowing and stopping baldness. Results have even shown that it may work to reverse the signs of pattern baldness. Pattern baldness is hair loss affecting the top and front of your head. This procedure uses a solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins to increase the strength of your hair. This could lead to thicker, longer, and healthier hair. While almost anyone suffering from hair loss is a candidate for PRP therapy, those who are experiencing early hair loss have shown the best results. PRP therapy can be used to treat multiple things, including:

  • Hair loss

  • Receding hairline

  • Thinning hair

  • Female and male pattern baldness

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, contact our offices today. PRP therapy might be the best option for you if you are looking for a way to stop, prevent, and even reverse baldness.

How does PRP therapy work for hair loss?

During the hour-long office visit, our team will draw some blood and place it in a special machine. This machine spins the blood at a high speed until the platelets and blood are separated. Then, a solution is mixed and applied to your scalp. The PRP is introduced onto the balding parts of your scalp. Finally, microneedling is done to cause micro-trauma. This allows the PRP to fully penetrate your skin. After your initial treatment, you may need maintenance treatments every nine months. If you are experiencing hair loss, PRP may be for you. Contact Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery in Dallas, TX.

What is recovery like?

Since this is a nonsurgical procedure, there is no recovery period after treatment. You may experience minor swelling, discomfort, and discoloration on your treated areas. These symptoms should only last around 48 hours. You should see hair growth around four months. This should continue to improve over the next year. Since PRP therapy is not a permanent treatment option, you may need some maintenance. This is recommended every year to year and a half. PRP treatment is a clinically backed choice for those with hair loss or thinning. Kevin R. Hanz, M.D. Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is happy to offer this effective and efficient solution for hair loss.
