How is PRP hair restoration performed?
Dr. Glat will begin by numbing the scalp with a topical anesthetic. A blood sample will be drawn and processed in a centrifugal machine that separates solids and liquids. A serum is then created with an extremely high concentration of platelets, the specialized cells responsible for healing. The PRP is then placed in a syringe and carefully injected just beneath the scalp’s surface. The entire procedure can take 60 to 90 minutes.
How do I prepare for PRP hair restoration?
Wash your hair thoroughly just before a treatment session to ensure your scalp is clean. Do not apply any hair products, such as hairspray, gel, or other styling products.
What is the recovery time?
You can resume your daily activities immediately. You may experience slight numbness in your scalp, which should disappear in a few hours.

Is PRP hair restoration right for me?
If you have thinning hair, PRP can be effective to slow the thinning and stimulate healthy hair growth in dying follicles. It is not effective as a treatment to fill in bald patches, in which case a hair transplant might be appropriate. Your scalp must be free of any lesions or open sores for you to be safe to undergo this regenerative treatment.
