PRP Injections Pasadena, CA

The hair follicles can be affected by a myriad of factors that impact their performance. Degeneration of the skin and surrounding tissue can affect the follicle and hair growth. There are regenerative treatments that may help stimulate hair follicle repair and stimulate hair growth. At Pasadena Hair Transplant, we offer PRP injections for hair loss as one of our non-surgical hair restoration treatments.

What Is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is an autologous treatment that is derived from your own blood. Platelets are vital for tissue repair and can stimulate the release of growth factors. PRP is created by taking a small sample of blood from the patient, then filtering the blood through a centrifuge to separate the components. The platelets are separated to create a dense plasma that is “rich” in platelets.

PRP has been used in medical treatments for decades. It can aid in faster wound healing as well as improve the appearance of skin for cosmetic treatments. In hair restoration, PRP injections are used in a few different ways to improve hair growth and tissue repair in the skin and scalp.

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP injections can be used as a non-surgical hair loss treatment and to accompany hair transplant surgery. As a hair loss treatment, a series of PRP injections into the scalp can be helpful to repair damaged hair follicles and possibly stimulate hair growth. PRP injections work best when performed in a series of treatments every 3-4 weeks over a few months.

PRP treatments may be recommended to accompany FUE transplant surgery. The growth factors can help the skin heal faster and may stimulate faster hair growth from the transplanted follicles and in the donor area. Our hair restoration specialists at Pasadena Hair Transplant can discuss whether PRP injections for hair loss may be right for you.

There are innovative new treatments available for hair restoration. If you are experiencing thinning hair or bald spots, contact our team at Pasadena Hair Transplant.
