PRP for Hair Loss

Treatments for hair loss are most effective when started early. If you’ve noticed your hair is thinning, meet with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phuong Pham at United Plastic Surgery for a complimentary consultation. He offers a natural way to stop thinning and even regrow hair using platelet-rich plasma (PRP). This hair loss treatment helps his patients from Temecula and surrounding areas take advantage of the restorative properties available in their own blood.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is the liquid portion of the blood (plasma) with a high concentration of platelets. Platelets in the blood contain essential building blocks of new cells and growth factors that promote healing.

How does PRP help with hair loss?

PRP slows and possibly reverses hair loss by:

  • Increasing blood flow to the hair follicles
  • Stimulating the growth of new hair in shrinking (miniaturized) hair follicles
  • Lengthening the active growth phase of existing hair to help it become healthier, stronger, and longer

How is PRP therapy performed for hair growth?

Dr. Pham performs this treatment using the following 3-step process:

  1. Blood is drawn from your arm, much like when you have lab work done.
  2. The blood is processed in a special centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red and white blood cells.
  3. After numbing the thinning areas of the scalp with a local anesthetic, Dr. Pham injects the PRP.

How many PRP treatments will I need for my hair loss?

The number of treatments needed depends on your degree of hair loss and response to treatment. Initially, Dr. Pham recommends 2 to 3 treatments spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are required every 4 to 6 months.

When will I see hair growth from PRP therapy?

Patients typically start to notice results in 3 to 4 months because hair grows in cycles. Final results take approximately 6 to 12 months to achieve.
