About PRP Hair treatment

Hair loss is a major concern for a number of men and women, whether it's brought on by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or from styling products or practices. With current advances in research within the hair restoration field, new treatments are being made to help combat these issues. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an advanced nonsurgical procedure that is showing remarkable benefits in slowing down, stopping, and even reversing baldness. PRP has shown promising results in patients with alopecia areata or thinning eyebrows. Plastic Surgery Vegas is just one of a small number of cosmetic practices to perform this innovative treatment in Las Vegas, NV. By mixing a strong solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, our skilled team of specialists can help strengthen your hair, leading to longer, thicker, healthier locks.

Ideal Candidates

Any man or woman suffering from hair loss is potentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss usually yield the best results. PRP is best used for those with androgenic alopecia, which is an inherited type of hair thinning that commonly occurs on the top part of the head. For women, this could look like a widening part with regular hair density on the backside of the head. Those with parts of "weak quality” hair growth of the scalp with functioning hair follicles typically have the best results with PRP hair regrowth therapy.

PRP Therapy for hair loss

A minimally invasive procedure, the PRP treatment is a short, 60-minute in-office visit. The process begins with attaining a little bit of your blood and putting it in a specialized machine, which circulates the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood elements. After that, a local anesthetic is administered to your scalp and the concentrated platelet-rich plasma is introduced into parts of your head that are thinning or bald. Finally, microneedling is performed on the scalp to create micro-trauma and micro-channels into the skin, which triggers the PRP and permits it to seep deep into the skin. Our routine for nonsurgical management of baldness consists of an initial treatment and maintenance treatments roughly every nine months to one year.

What to Expect

There's no recovery period necessary following this procedure with almost no limits or restrictions. If anything, patients can develop some redness, minor swelling, and mild discomfort to the treated regions. These symptoms might last up to two days. While outcomes differ for every individual, aesthetic results are commonly noticed approximately 4 – 6 months after the first session and will continue to improve up to a complete year following treatment. As PRP is not a permanent option for reversing hair loss, follow-up treatments are suggested every 12 – 18 months. It is necessary to remember that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in locations where you're already bald. It's used to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will create healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

PRP Hair Treatment FAQS

Can PRP be combined with other hair treatments?
Yes. Since PRP uses a patient's own blood supply, there is no risk for an adverse reaction, which also means it is safe to combine with other therapies. During your consultation, we can provide some recommendations on at-home hair products that may help you attain a fuller head of hair. 

How often should I get PRP treatments?
Most patients receive three PRP treatments spaced about one month apart to start. On average, after the initial set of treatments, patients usually receive PRP hair treatments once every year. This can vary based on the severity of baldness, your overall health, and how well your body responds to the treatment. 

How effective is PRP therapy at treating hair loss?
The results of PRP therapy will be different for everyone as it depends on several factors, such as your unique condition and genetics. It's also important to have realistic expectations, which is why individuals should be patient with their results. It will take some time for your hair growth to become visible, but many of our patients have said it is worth the wait.
