Are you struggling with hair loss or thinning hair? Look no further than PRP Treatment! By using your body’s own natural healing properties, Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates collagen production, cell renewal, and tissue regeneration. In this article, we will dive into the world of PRP and explore how this state-of-the-art therapy has changed hair restoration.
Understanding Hair Loss
Excessive hair loss is a common problem that affects both men and women. There are several potential causes of hair loss which include:
- Medical Conditions
- Hair Styles
- Hormonal Changes
- Radiation Therapy
What is PRP treatment?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) uses your own blood platelets to stimulate collagen production, cell renewal, and tissue regeneration. The PRP hair treatment is created by separating the plasma from the rest of the blood using a centrifuge.
This concentrated plasma is then reintroduced into the scalp through injections, stimulating cell regeneration and the production of new hair follicles. PRP injection therapy has long been used by orthopedic doctors and reconstructive surgeons to encourage more rapid healing without the need for surgery.
This same treatment can have amazing outcomes when it comes to things like cosmetic facial rejuvenation.
A series of treatments may:
- Awaken dormant follicles.
- Increase blood supply.
- Trigger and maintain the growth phase.
- Provide nutrients to existing follicles.
- Increase hair shaft thickness.
- Decrease hair loss and hair fall.

How does PRP hair treatment work?
PRP hair restoration consists of a series of treatments in which the patient’s blood is drawn to be prepared for PRP. Once the formula is prepared, it is injected into the patient’s scalp.
The growth factors found in PRP work by activating cells in the hair follicles that stimulate hair growth. Once the treatment series is completed, patients walk away with a higher number of hair follicles that are stronger and less likely to fall out down the line. As with most cosmetic treatments, follow-up appointments after the initial series are often required for the patient to maintain their new hair thickness.
What to expect during your PRP treatment:
During your PRP treatment, you can expect the following:
- Blood draw: The nurse, or MD, will draw 23 mL of whole blood. Typically, from a vein in your arm.
- PRP preparation: The whole blood will be added to 2 mL of saline in the PRP Concentrator and spun in the centrifuge for 3 minutes to produce your own PRP.
- PRP injection: The PRP will be manually injected into your scalp using a fine needle.
- Comfort during treatment: Overall, the treatment is quite comfortable, and no numbing or pain management is required.
Who is eligible for PRP treatment?
While PRP therapy is autologous and has exceptionally low chances of being rejected by the body as a treatment, some patients are not suited for PRP treatment to begin with. Before any cosmetic procedure, you must consult a specialist from Jack Nathan MedSpa to determine if PRP is the right hair loss treatment.
Who is the best candidate for the PRP treatment?
You are an ideal patient for a PRP injection if you meet the following criteria:
- You are in the early stages of hair loss and have small areas with weak hair growth.
- You have weakened or inactive hair follicles.
- You’ve had a hair transplant and want to strengthen the donor follicles.
- You are physically healthy and have no existing bleeding disorders, thyroid diseases, or hepatitis.
- You don’t have skin cancer or active scalp infections.
Revivogen Scalp Therapy + PRP
Combining PRP treatments with other hair regrowth /scalp rejuvenation treatments raises the outcome by far. Microneedling with PRP can be combined with dermatologist-engineered Revivogen® MD hair restoration products which are found in all Jack Nathan MedSpa.
The added support of the additional hair regrowth treatment can pair well with the existing effects of PRP treatment, especially between treatment sessions.
Products such as Revivogen Scalp Therapy is a potent topical formula made of natural active ingredients scientifically proven to be the most potent anti-DHT compound available today. Revivogen Scalp Therapy works by blocking DHT in the scalp, decreasing hormone levels available. In addition to 6 DHT-blocking ingredients, Scalp Therapy contains two hair growth stimulators.
As a result, existing hair becomes thicker & fuller, while reactivate hair follicles produce new, healthy growth. In addition, Revivogen MD Scalp Therapy not only stimulates growth, but the treatment also reduces hair shedding.
It’s important to note that success rates can vary amongst patients; we know that PRP treatment is more likely to encourage hair growth in areas of the scalp where there is still much-miniaturized hair. It is unlikely to produce positive results when carried out on scalp patches that have experienced complete hair loss.
While there is no consensus on the exact success rate of PRP injections for hair restoration, it sits between 70-90% for the average patient. It tends to work better in younger patients beginning to experience the effects of genetic hair loss and thinning.
How many sessions of PRP are required to achieve optimal results?
The most common question we get from patients is how many sessions are required to achieve optimal results. This varies based on individual patient factors, including the cause of their hair loss, the severity of their hair loss, and others.
PRP is typically done in a series of treatments with the treatments being spaced 4 weeks apart. Most patients will start with a series of 3 treatments. After the initial 3 treatments, if the patient has obtained their desired result, maintenance treatments every 3-6 months is recommended.
