PRP Therapy for Thinning Hair in Women

The Solution to Get Thicker, Fuller Hair is in You

Many women are concerned about thinning hair or loss of hair on specific areas of their scalp. Losing hair can become a very emotional issue for women. There are many reasons why some women experience hair loss, including:

  • Age
  • Hereditary factors
  • Hormonal imbalance (caused by pregnancy, menopause, and certain drugs)
  • Emotional factors (such as stress and anxiety)
  • Hair damage caused by external factors (dyes, chemicals, styling tools)

Hair Restoration Treatment

The Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an innovative hair restoration treatment that works by injecting platelet rich plasma into specific areas of the scalp. Platelet Rich Plasma injections are made of a serum containing your own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth. The procedure is meant to:

  • Recruit new hairs to grow
  • Invigorate and revitalize existing hair
  • Stimulate the stem cells that are around the follicles to get thicker

The therapy is non-surgical, with little to no side effects or risk of allergic reaction*.

What Are Platelet Rich Plasma Injections For Hair Loss?

Human blood is composed of red blood cells (93%), white blood cells (6%), and platelets and plasma (1%). Platelet rich plasma (or Platelet Rich Plasma), concentrates on separating that 1%, creating a concentrated serum of platelets. Although they are known for their coagulating properties (to stop bleeding), platelets also release growth factors that recruit reparative cells and, hence, revitalize and heal tissues. In other words, platelets are cells that help soft tissue to heal and grow new cells. For this reason, Platelet Rich Plasma injections have a long history of success in treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions.

In cosmetic medicine, Platelet Rich Plasma injections are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue. In hair restoration therapy, Platelet Rich Plasma results have been very promising and offer an effective solution to hair growth and thickening for a majority of patients.

Platelet Rich Plasma Injections are highly effective for both men and women. Benefits include*:

  • No risks of allergic reaction
  • Minimal pain or discomfort
  • Safe, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
  • Minimal side effects

Benefits Of Platelet Rich Plasma For Hair

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) stimulates cell growth in the injected area. Platelet Rich Plasma aids the hair growth process, without the use of chemicals or foreign substances. Platelet Rich Plasma does not cause allergic reactions or infections, because the injected plasma comes from the patient’s own body.

Platelet Rich Plasma benefits include*:

  • Improved hair texture and thickness
  • Increase in hair volume
  • Hair looks healthier

How Does The Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Treatment Work?


Injections And Microneedling

Platelet Rich Plasma is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves hair growth* and naturally reverses thinning hair.

When Platelet Rich Plasma is inserted into the skin, the injection causes a small injury that activates the platelets and allows them to do what they do best: generate growth. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are extremely above their normal concentration (which is what happens during the Platelet Rich Plasma treatment), it boosts the follicle’s ability to become thicker.
