Revitalize Your Hair with PRP

Hair loss is a common concern that affects individuals of all ages, genders, and backgrounds. The impact of thinning hair on self-esteem and confidence can be significant, motivating many to seek effective solutions. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration has emerged as an innovative non-surgical treatment that utilizes the body's natural healing abilities to promote hair regrowth and address hair thinning.

The Spiegel Center features expertly trained, board-certified facial plastic surgeons dedicated to delivering innovative cosmetic and aesthetic surgery results to people from throughout the Boston area, New England, and across the country. With their exceptional surgical proficiency, our specialists prioritize helping patients restore lost hair and regain thicker, denser, natural hair.

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP Hair Restoration involves using a patient's own platelets and a serum rich in growth factors and then placing these into the scalp. Growth factors play a vital role in healing and rejuvenation, stimulating cellular repair, collagen production, and tissue regeneration. When applied to hair restoration, PRP is believed to rejuvenate hair follicles, promote hair growth, and enhance hair quality.  Our doctors have published studies showing the efficacy of PRP for improving hair quality and thickness.

PRP hair restoration offers a non-surgical solution for both men and women dealing with hair loss. By utilizing the body's own healing properties, PRP injections stimulate hair growth and improve hair thickness. This innovative approach addresses hair loss concerns in a natural and effective way.

What are the benefits of PRP hair restoration?

  • Natural approach: PRP Hair Restoration capitalizes on the body's innate healing mechanisms, minimizing the use of synthetic substances.  We are getting your body to create an environment for enhanced hair growth.
  • Minimally invasive: PRP treatments involve only small injections, eliminating the need for surgical procedures and lengthy recoveries.  
  • Safe and low risk: Since PRP is derived from the patient's own blood, the risk of experiencing allergic reactions or complications is very low.  A small bruise is the most likely complication, and that is not common.
  • Improves hair quality: PRP not only promotes hair growth but can also enhance hair thickness, texture, and overall quality.

Who is a candidate for PRP hair restoration?

Candidates for PRP hair restoration are those experiencing mild to moderate hair loss, thinning, or shedding. Both men and women with hereditary hair loss, known as androgenetic alopecia, can benefit from PRP treatments. Ideal candidates have a stable hair loss pattern and realistic expectations about the potential outcomes.

What does the procedure entail?

The PRP hair restoration procedure typically involves the following steps:

  • Blood collection: A small amount of the patient's blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test.
  • Centrifugation: The blood is placed in a centrifuge, a device that spins at high speeds to separate the platelets from other components.
  • Platelet-Rich Plasma Extraction: The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is extracted from the blood and prepared for injection.
  • Microinjections: The PRP is injected into the targeted areas of the scalp using fine needles. These injections are strategically administered to stimulate dormant hair follicles and encourage growth.

Recovery process

One of the appealing aspects of PRP hair restoration is its minimal downtime. Most patients are able to resume their regular routines immediately following the procedure. Some mild redness or minor swelling at the injection sites can occur and usually subside within a day or two.

Results and expectations

While individual experiences vary, it's important to manage expectations with PRP hair restoration. Initial results may take several weeks to become noticeable, and multiple sessions are typically recommended to achieve optimal outcomes. Patience is key, but consistent treatments over a period of months can lead to gradual hair regrowth and improvement in hair quality.

Risks and considerations

PRP hair restoration is generally safe and well-tolerated. However, as with any medical procedure, there are some potential risks:

  • Soreness: Patients sometimes experience some slight discomfort around the injection sites, but this is usually temporary.
  • Infection: There is a low risk of infection around the injection sites.
  • No guaranteed results: While many patients experience positive outcomes, PRP hair restoration may not work for everyone.
  • Allergic reactions: Since PRP is derived from the patient's own blood, the risk of allergic reactions is minimal.

Patients who are considering PRP hair restoration should refer to a certified medical professional to determine if the treatment aligns with their needs and expectations.
