PRP Hair Restoration Q & A

Why am I losing my hair?

Hair loss, or thinning hair, happens to both men and women. You might go through hair loss, simply because it runs in your genes. In some cases you could lose your hair if you:

  • Don’t have enough protein in your diet
  • Are pregnant or going through menopause
  • Have recently gone through a trauma
  • Are under a lot of stress
  • Have thyroid disease
  • Have low iron (anemia)

Because losing your hair can be a warning sign of an underlying condition, it’s important that Dr. Heidari runs some lab work to see if any of these conditions apply.

What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, uses your own powerful cells to stimulate hair growth. During your treatment, Dr. Heidari draws blood and processes it. She then puts your blood sample into a machine called a centrifuge, which separates your PRP from other blood components.

This highly-concentrated PRP has natural components that can heal damaged cells in your scalp and help new hair follicles form and grow. Once Dr. Heidari has your PRP ready, she’ll numb your targeted hair loss areas and inject the solution.

Are there benefits to choosing PRP over other hair restoration options?

Yes! PRP is one of the most modern hair restoration options available. Many men and women prefer PRP over other hair restoration and regrowth options because PRP:

  • Is non-surgical
  • Is individualized to you, based on your cells
  • Has a quick recovery time
  • Leaves you with natural looking results
  • Can be done in about 30 minutes per session
  • Stimulates hair growth naturally

Will I need more than one PRP treatment?

Possibly, although it’s going to depend on your amount of hair loss and how quickly you respond to your PRP treatment. It’s typical for men and women to need a PRP treatment once every four to six months.

Once you get that full head of hair you want, you might need to come in occasionally throughout the year for routine maintenance sessions. The frequency of these sessions will depend on the cause of your hair loss and whether you’ve started losing hair again. Dr. Heidari can go over what you should expect during your consultation.
