What is a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment? 

PRP treatments supply natural proteins, cytokines, stem cells, and other bioactive growth factors to the treated areas. These growth factors, found in platelet-rich plasma, have the potential to reverse hair loss and stimulate new hair growth.  

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work? 

PRP therapy involves drawing a small amount of blood, like that needed for a basic lab test. The blood is then placed in a sterile tube and spun in a centrifuge to separate its components. The red and white blood cells are divided from a high concentration of platelets and the clear plasma fluid. The PRP, containing platelets, is injected into the patient’s scalp to reach the subdermal space where the hair follicle bulb resides. The platelets in PRP can potentially stimulate the growth of hair follicles by activating stem cells and other cells in the hair follicle’s microenvironment. The plasma with high concentrations of platelets aids in promoting hair growth by prolonging the hair cycle’s growth phase and increasing hair thickness. This stimulation of the hair follicle assists in cell and wound healing, collagen production, and hair regrowth while inhibiting further shedding. The primary goal of using PRP in hair restoration is to prompt inactive hair follicles to enter an active growth phase. 

Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration 

PRP hair restoration is a popular choice due to its simplicity and numerous benefits. It contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth and slow down hair loss. PRP is non-surgical, minimally invasive, with little to no risk of reaction. It effectively stimulates hair follicle growth, reduces miniaturization, and works for both men and women. The results are subtle and natural. 

Before During and After

What to Expect Before a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment 

Before treatment, our team of experienced practitioners will provide you with a personalized skin care regimen designed to enhance your overall results. Our skilled and dedicated practitioners in Neenah and Plover will work closely with you to create a tailored plan that perfectly aligns with your unique needs and helps you achieve your desired aesthetic goals. 

What to Expect During a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment 

PRP treatment begins with the application of a local anesthetic to ensure comfort and numb the treatment area. While waiting for it to take effect, a blood sample is collected and placed in a centrifuge to isolate and activate the PRP and necessary growth factors. Once separated, the platelet-rich plasma is carefully injected just below the scalp’s surface using a fine-gauge needle. The injections follow a precise pattern, focusing on the areas of severe hair loss. A typical procedure usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes. 

What to Expect After a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment 

After a treatment, it is normal for your scalp to feel slightly numb. However, this sensation should subside on its own within a few hours, allowing you to freely resume your normal activities.
