WHAT IS PRP THERAPY FOR HAIR LOSS?
Hair thinning is a major concern for a number of patients and could be caused by age, genetics, hormones, health conditions, styling products, or poor hair practices. With recent advances in research within the hair restoration field, new procedures have been created to help combat the issue. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an innovative, nonsurgical remedy for individuals that is showing remarkable benefits in slowing, stopping, and reversing baldness. PRP has also shown promising outcomes in individuals with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. Avanti Medical Center is just one of a small number of hair restoration centers to perform this innovative treatment in Lehi, UT. By mixing a strong solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins, the skilled meddical professionals at Avanti can help strengthen your hair, resulting in thicker, longer, healthy locks.
OUR PRP FOR HAIR LOSS TECHNIQUE
PRP therapy for the hair is often completed during a one-hour in-office visit. The process starts with obtaining a little bit of your blood and putting it in a specialized machine called a centrifuge, which rotates the blood at high speed to remove the platelets from the unneeded components. After that, a local anesthetic is applied to your scalp and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into the areas of your scalp that are thinning. Then, microneedling is performed on the scalp to cause micro-trauma and micro-channels to the epidermis, which triggers the PRP and allows it to seep deep into the skin.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS FAQ
Do the PRP injections for hair loss hurt?
No, most patients don’t find the PRP injections painful. Before we begin, the scalp will be completely numbed with a local anesthetic to keep patients comfortable throughout the procedure. After they’re done and the anesthetic wears off, some patients may experience mild soreness or tightness in the treatment area, but this is normal and typically resolves within a few days.
How much does it cost to have PRP therapy for hair loss?
The cost of your PRP therapy treatments will depend on your level of hair loss and the number of injections needed to reach your hair restoration goals. During your consultation, we will examine your hair and listen to your goals to help create the perfect treatment plan for you. Then we can estimate the costs of your treatment regimen.
Can you combine PRP injections with other hair loss treatments?
Yes, you can. In fact, many patients choose to combine PRP therapy for hair loss with other treatments such as topical medications, light therapy, microneedling, and more. During your consultation, we can talk about the various options and combinations that can best help you achieve the thicker, fuller head of hair you want.
How often will I have to get PRP treatments?
Every PRP for hair loss treatment regimen is unique to address each patient’s specific hair restoration needs. In general, most patients will see the best response with about 3 – 5 sessions and a maintenance session at 3 – 6 months after their regimen is finished.
