Patients who experience thinning hair can achieve a full head of hair naturally and safely using PRP for hair restoration. This revolutionary procedure is available for patients by visiting the office of board certified Philadelphia plastic surgeon Dr. Paul M. Glat.
PRP for hair restoration involves the use of Platelet Rich Plasma to stimulate the body’s own hair growth. It is an outpatient procedure that requires no downtime whatsoever. Since it is a minimally-invasive procedure, there is no discomfort with it either.
Patients often choose PRP because it is a simple and safe procedure that includes numerous benefits, including:
Dr. Glat will begin by numbing the area with a topical anesthetic. A staff member will then collect a sample of your blood so it can be “spun” in a special machine. This machine is designed to separate solids and liquids to create a solution that has an extremely high concentration of platelets. PRP is then put into a syringe that is injected just under the scalp’s surface. The procedure can take 60 to 90 minutes.
Wash your hair thoroughly just before a treatment session to ensure your scalp is clean. Avoid using hairspray or styling products on it during this time.
You can resume your daily activities immediately. You may experience a slight numbness in your scalp which should disappear in a few hours.
This will depend on the extent of thinning hair and the exact results you are trying to achieve. As such, the cost is different for everyone and can only be discussed after undergoing a consultation. We offer CareCredit® as a financing option. Also, check our Current Specials.
If you have thinning hair, PRP can be effective to help regrow thinning hair, but should not be used to fill in bald patches. Your scalp also needs to be free of any lesions or open sores.
