PRP for Hair Loss Treatments:
Treat hair loss as soon as possible with PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, in Wellesley. This treatment is focused on boosting your body’s natural healing to restore hair growth in the scalp. A PRP injection can treat thinning hair and restore hair to bare patches of scalp, and it is effective for all hair types. It can also support hair growth for hair transplant patients.
A PRP treatment for hair loss requires the expertise and artistry of a skilled professional. We will evaluate your hair condition and help you visualize the possible results of PRP for your hair.
What Is PRP?
PRP is a treatment that utilizes the body’s healing process. The body naturally heals damaged cells when platelets are delivered through the bloodstream. PRP contains natural growth factors that signal cells to “turn on.”
With PRP injections, platelets and plasma are taken from the patient’s blood, concentrated in a lab, and prepared for injection into the area of thinning hair. The PRP injections will stimulate collagen and elastin production and restore hair follicles to their growth phase, promoting hair growth.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP?
PRP for hair loss candidates must be in overall good health and have realistic expectations. This treatment requires a commitment to a healthy lifestyle that will help prolong the benefits of PRP. A PRP injection is also less invasive than a hair transplant. Those who prefer a quick treatment with no downtime can come in for PRP for hair loss.
PRP treatment can also support hair growth in hair transplant patients. This treatment is highly customizable to promote hair loss prevention and hair regrowth.
Since the treatment requires collecting blood from the patient, it may not be suitable for people with medical conditions affecting blood health. Please consult with us if you are considering a PRP treatment.
Your PRP Consultation
A PRP consultation will involve an assessment of the hair’s overall condition. We will help you visualize the possible results and timeline for the treatment.
You will be asked about your complete medical history before confirming your eligibility for the procedure. Be ready to discuss current medications and allergies to help us plan a safe and comfortable treatment process.
The experts at Premier Dermatology can also assess any potential medical causes for your hair loss and recommend additional medical therapies as indicated, such as Finasteride, oral or topical Minoxidil, or Spironolactone.
There are essentially no limitations after PRP injections for hair growth. However, we often recommend avoiding alcohol and exercise on the day of injections to minimize bruising.
