What is PRP THerapy for Hair Loss?

Hair thinning is a major concern for many adults, whether it is brought on by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or from years of over styling.   Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a state-of-the-art nonsurgical procedure for men and women that is showing remarkable results in slowing down, stopping, and reversing hair loss.  PRP has shown promising results in patients with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. Our skilled team at Lincoln Park Aesthetics is proud to provide this innovative treatment.  By mixing a powerful solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, we can help strengthen your hair, resulting in longer, thicker, healthier locks.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for PRP Therapy?

Any person suffering from hair loss is potentially a candidate for PRP therapy, but those with early hair loss usually yield the best results.  PRP is best suited for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is an inherited type of hair loss that mostly occurs on the top of the head. In women, this may look like a widening part with regular hair thickness on the back of the scalp.  Patients with areas of "poor quality" hair growth on the scalp and normally reacting hair follicles have the greatest results with PRP hair regrowth treatments.

Our PRP for Hair Loss Technique

Lincoln Park Aesthetics uses PLASMA IQ the first FDA class II cleared plasma energy device.

Plasma IQ is the latest advancement in aesthetics that delivers focused, controlled plasma energy to safely and effectively create microinjuries on the skin, renewing and restoring it.  

PRP therapy is a minimally invasive procedure. The session begins with obtaining a little bit of your blood and placing it in a centrifuge machine, which rotates the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the remainder of the blood elements. Next, a local anesthetic is administered to your scalp and the platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced into regions of your scalp that are bald or thinning.  Microneedling is then performed with the Plasma Pen which creates trauma and micro-channels. This allows the PRP  to be absorbed deep into the skin.  

What can I Expect after prp hair therapy?

There is usually no significant downtime required following this procedure.  Patients may develop some discoloration, minor swelling, and mild discomfort to the treated regions. These symptoms can last up to 48 hours.  PRP is not a permanent alternative for hair loss, follow-up treatment is recommended every 12 – 18 months.  PRP does not grow new hair follicles in areas where you are already bald. It is used to reverse the the size of the hair follicle so it will produce fuller, healthier, longer hair fibers.
