PRP injections are a non-surgical hair loss treatment for hair restoration, hair follicle health, and scalp hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma injections (PRP) are a potent regenerative serum used in the non-surgical treatment of hair loss. PRP concentrate serum contains growth factors that aid in the healing of damaged hair follicles, and create thicker, denser hair growth. This non-surgical hair restoration can serve as an effective treatment for androgenetic alopecia (female pattern and male pattern baldness), thinning hair, and bald spots.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a substance that is thought to promote healing and tissue regeneration when injected. PRP is a concentrated preparation of a patient’s own plasma and platelets from centrifugation of blood that contains numerous growth factors that stimulate tissue regeneration. PRP is used in many medical settings including orthopedics, dentistry, plastic surgery, and dermatology. PRP has been found to be very effective in both facial rejuvenation and hair restoration.
What are the side effects of PRP facial rejuvenation?
Minimal: Expect minimal swelling, bruising and redness for 12-24 hours.
How can PRP be used in facial rejuvenation?
PRP can be used for a PRP Microneedling Facial, as part of a PRP Facelift and also as part of a PRP Facelift Plus procedure as described below.
PRP Microneedling Facial
A PRP Microneedling Facial involves topically applying PRP to the face followed by microneedling the skin. This process facilitates the penetration of the PRP into the skin and thereby enhancing remodeling and collagen production. Treatment results are improved skin texture, tightness and brightness. Optimal results occur after 4 treatments performed 4 weeks apart.
A PRP Facelift involves the direct injection of PRP into areas of the skin that need rejuvenation. The PRP helps to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and tighten and firm the skin through the production of collagen, elastin and other youth restoring factors. We recommend a series of two treatments four weeks apart with an optional third treatment if necessary.
PRP Facelift Plus
Our PRP Facelift Plus combines a PRP Facelift (direct injection of PRP into the skin) with strategic placement of dermal fillers. The combination of treatments restores facial volume, lifts and tightens the skin, improves skin texture and tone and smooths away both deen and fine lines and wrinkles. PRP not only provides a complete facial rejuvenation it also prolongs the longevity of the dermal fillers used.
