PRP - Hair Restoration for Men and Women

Sharon Littzi, M.D. performs PRP therapy for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is an exciting non-surgical option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for thinning hair.

HOW DOES PRP WORK?

The PRP used for the treatment is derived from your own blood. The blood is spun in a special tube and centrifuged to extract the clear platelet rich plasma. This plasma contains many growth factors which are activated and released into the scalp as the PRP is injected. These growth factors(see diagram below) stimulate hair growth and cause hair to grow faster, thicker, and healthier.

HOW DO YOU PERFORM THE PROCEDURE?

The PRP (Platelet rich plasma) is part of your blood and is specially prepared by spinning down the plasma cells to a high concentration. This highly concentrated PRP is prepared then injected into the scalp. The patient’s hair is then washed and the patient may drive home without any assistance. No sedation or medication is given during the procedure. It’s a very simple straight forward process. After 3 treatments, follow up is usually every 6 months.

IS PRP FOR ME?

PRP is safe and natural because the procedure concentrates the growth factors containing cells from your blood that are then injected directly back into the area where it is needed. PRP should not be considered a “cure” for hair loss and no guarantees can be made about outcomes. No claim of PRP efficacy in promoting hair growth can be made because there is no FDA approval that would allow such claims to be made. However, in our office we see over 85% effectiveness.

CAN I USE OTHER MEDICAL THERAPIES?

Absolutely. In fact, we encourage it and prescribe PRP therapy as a compliment to a nonsurgical or surgical approach. For those patients who are not eligible for surgery or who want to delay hair restoration surgery, PRP can be combined with placenta, stem cell protein matrix or other nutrients to improve outcomes. In addition, we have a full line of topical nutraceuticals for hair loss. Hormone and extensive vitamin testing is also performed in our office.
