What is PRP THerapy for Hair Loss?

Hair loss is a significant concern for a number of adults – whether it is caused by age, genetics, hormones, health conditions, or styling products. With current advances within the hair restoration industry, new procedures have been created to help combat the issue. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a common and proven nonsurgical treatment for individuals – showing remarkable results in slowing, stopping, and even reversing baldness. PRP has also shown promising outcomes in individuals with alopecia areata or thinning eyebrows. Jaimie DeRosa, M.D., F.A.C.S. of DeRosa Center Plastic Surgery is one of only a small number of hair restoration surgeons to provide this revolutionary treatment in Palm Beach, FL. By combining a powerful solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, Dr. DeRosa can help strengthen your hair, resulting in thicker, longer, healthy locks.

Ideal Candidates

While anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP therapy, patients with early hair loss usually yield the best results. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, an inherited type of hair loss that typically occurs along the top part of the head. In women, this can sometimes look like a broadening part with regular hair density on the back of the head. Patients with areas of "weak quality” hair growth typically have the best results with PRP hair regrowth treatments.  This treatment works best in areas where there are still hair follicles present.

Our PRP for Hair Loss Technique

A nonsurgical process, PRP therapy requires just one short, one-hour in-office visit. The process starts with drawing a small amount of your blood and putting it in a specialized machine, which circulates the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood elements. After that, we use a specialty delivery system, called Aquagold FineTouch , to comfortably deliver the platelets and growth factors right to your hair follicles.  Concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into areas of your head that are thinning. 

What to Expect

There's no downtime after this procedure, with virtually no limits or restrictions. We do recommend to hold off on hair washing for at least 12 hours so that the platelet rich plasma and growth factors do not get washed away.  Patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild discomfort in the treated areas. These symptoms can last up to 48 hours. While outcomes differ for every individual, aesthetic results are generally noticed around 4 – 6 months after the initial treatment and will continue to improve for up to a year following treatment. Since PRP is not a permanent option for hair loss, we recommend a series of 3 to 4 treatments every 4-8 weeks and then follow-up sessions are suggested every 12 – 18 months. It's essential to remember that PRP doesn't grow new hair follicles in locations where you are already bald. It's used to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce fuller, healthier, longer hair fibers.
