PRP For Hair Loss Q & A

What causes hair loss?

It’s normal for everyone to lose as many as 100 hairs a day, but when you’re losing clumps, and your scalp is showing, it’s easy to feel embarrassed or discouraged. During your normal growth and shedding cycles, new growth replaces shedding hair, so you don’t even notice the change. It’s when your normal growth cycle is interrupted that you lose large quantities of hair. Reasons for that interruption in your growth cycle include:

  • Stress
  • Hormonal changes
  • Illness or disease
  • Certain medications
  • Genetics

Your provider works with you to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss.

What is PRP for hair restoration?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. One of the components of your blood is platelets, which carry important growth factors that providers and chiropractors are extracting and using with great success.  

For hair restoration, your provider draws your blood and separates the platelets in a centrifuge. He or she injects the platelets directly into your scalp to provoke hair follicle growth.

Since the platelets are from your own body, the treatment is natural and safe. It’s a noninvasive alternative to hair transplant surgery.

Who’s a good candidate for PRP for hair loss?

You’re a good candidate for PRP therapy at All Island Dermatology if you have unexpected hair loss and want to halt or reverse it. If you have a receding hairline, thinning hair, or bald patches, you can benefit from hair restoration with PRP.

How soon will I see results from PRP for hair loss?

It takes a few weeks for your dormant hair follicles to come back to life after PRP injections. All Island Dermatology recommends that you have one treatment per month for about six months. Each procedure takes about an hour and requires no downtime.

You’ll begin to see hair regrowth in about three or four months. Your provider helps you determine if you need to return periodically for additional treatments.
