For patients searching for a minimally invasive and non-surgical solution for hair restoration, PRP treatment may be right for you. At American Mane Hair Restoration Center, we are proud to offer PRP treatment to patients experiencing hair loss or thinning.
Using PRP for Hair Restoration
To begin the treatment, we begin with extracting a small amount of blood from the patient. PRP, which stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma, uses your blood platelets to treat a variety of conditions. During this treatment, blood is drawn and then placed into a centrifuge which separates the plasma from the red and white blood cells. Plasma contains a high concentration of stem cells, platelets, and growth factors to help stimulate hair growth in the targeted area.
To help activate the platelets immediately, microneedling is used on the skin. Microneedling is a form of collagen induction therapy and is used to stimulate the body’s natural healing process. During the microneedling process, we introduce microscopic quantities of your PRP treatment into your scalp. The micro-injuries made by the needling process help your skin to absorb the serum.
Patients may experience minor discomfort, redness, and scabbing. Following treatment should subside within several days.

What is PRP Treatment For Hair Regrowth?
The PRP refers to, as we have already noted, Platelet-rich Plasma and is a treatment that takes the platelets from the patient’s own blood to enhance their body’s natural hair regrowth abilities or increase the results and recovery from traditional hair transplant surgery. Within the areas of tissue regeneration and cell therapy, there has been a lot of research continually carried out to progress PRP treatment’s ability to encourage, stimulate and even orchestrate activity within stem cells to enhance the healing of wounds and naturally rejuvenate hair and skin follicles.
Afterwards, you are likely to experience some minor discomfort, but this will normally only last about 7 days.
