PRP Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration is a non-invasive, natural treatment for thinning hair. Once injected into the scalp, PRP releases growth factors which increase circulation to the hair follicle and activates the growth phase (anagen) of the hair cycle, while turning down the shedding phase (telogen). PRP has been shown to increase hair thickness and number of hair follicles. It can be used for hair loss secondary to a variety of causes including aging, hormones, nutritional deficits and chronic disease.  It is most effective when the underlying cause of the hair loss is concurrently addressed- please consult with your FoRM physician or other doctor about addressing the root cause of your hair loss..



The steady progression of my hair thinning has stopped. PRP really works! I love that my hair is getting thicker and thicker, PRP is a great solution to hair loss. Dr Kai is very professional and makes you feel at ease. I'm really glad I made the choice to have PRP treatments.

Q: How does PRP for Hair Restoration work? +
A: PRP contains growth factors which stimulates proliferation of cells. When injected into the scalp, this effect activates the growth (anagen) phase and turns down the shedding (telogen) phase of the hair cycle. Studies have shown that PRP increases both the number of active follicles as well as hair thickness.
Q: What should I expect during my PRP for Hair Restoration treatment? +
A: At the beginning of the visit, a small amount of blood, which will be used to create the PRP, is drawn from the patient. As the PRP is processed in the centrifuge (using a double-spin approach), the scalp is then prepped for the procedure and before pictures are taken. PRP is then injected just under the skin of the scalp with very fine needles in the targeted areas.
Q: Does this procedure hurt? +
A: A local anesthetic and buffering agent is mixed with the PRP to improve comfort during the treatment. Most people tolerate the procedure well, reporting mild discomfort from the injections. Mild soreness in the treated area may linger for 1-2 days following the procedure. Although often unnecessary, Tylenol and ice can be used after the procedure to address lingering discomfort. A local anesthetic prior to the procedure may be administered if desired, please consult with the doctor performing the procedure.
Q: Who is the best candidate for this procedure? +
A: PRP Hair Treatment is a safe choice for many patients with thinning hair and hair loss. The treatment is most effective for those with diffuse thinning, early balding, and receding hair lines. Advanced hair loss does not typically respond to treatment.
Q: How many treatments do I need? +
A: The recommended course of treatment includes 3 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart. A maintenance treatment is recommended every 6-12 months depending on individual needs.
Q: When should I expect to see results? +
A: Peak results occur 6-9 months following the initial treatment.
Q: How much does each treatment cost? +
A: Costs of the procedures varies, but typically range between $500-800, depending on individual need. Discounts are available for pre-purchase of 3 treatments. Please set up a 15 minute complimentary consult to discuss treatment and cost options.
Q: Are there studies on PRP for Hair Restoration? +
A: Yes, there are several small scale studies on PRP for Hair Regeneration that suggest that PRP is effective and safe for hair growth. Many of our patients report satisfaction with the results. Considering its excellent safety profile and relatively low cost, PRP hair treatment is a promising treatment option for patients with thinning hair. Please see Resource page for links to studies.
