What Is PRP Hair Restoration?

Hair loss and thinning affect both men and women. Hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, or heredity may cause it. Whatever the cause, hair loss can impact self-confidence and appearance. Hair restoration with platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injections is an effective way to regenerate dormant hair follicles and stimulate hair growth using the platelets from the patient’s very own body. Dr. Pontell offers some of the best PRP hair treatments in Philadelphia.

How Does It Work?

Hair restoration procedures are performed using platelet-rich protein injections that include certain growth factors that stimulate the regeneration of new cells and new hair growth. By injecting platelet-rich plasma into the tissues of the scalp, the additional platelets and growth factors act as catalysts to help strengthen existing tissues and stimulate new growth on all levels, from the scalp to the hair itself. A hair restoration process is used to prevent further hair loss and to help maintain a healthy scalp.

What to Expect With PRP Hair Restoration

When you come to the Aesthetic Facial Plastic Surgery Center for hair restoration in Philadelphia, we will draw your blood in our facility as though you were having lab work done. We use a closed, sterile centrifuge system to spin the blood, separate out the platelets, and eliminate any substance that could interfere with tissue regeneration and healing. 

Platelet-rich plasma is prepared to contain many times the average concentration of platelets in the blood. After we treat your scalp with anesthesia to ensure your comfort during the procedure, our physician will inject the PRP into your scalp to stimulate hair growth. We will clean your hair after treatment, and you may return to routine activities the next day.

Platelets in PRP promote and accelerate tissue healing, regeneration, and new cellular growth, while growth factors stimulate the growth of hair follicles. The purpose of PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. By being proactive, the scalp can maintain healthy hair growth for more extended periods of time.


Are there side effects?

How effective are PRP injections?

Are there side effects?

Platelet-rich plasma is a mixture created using the patient's blood and plasma. This is a very low-risk procedure. The procedure is minimally invasive and often produces effective results in just a few treatments. Hair restoration techniques that involve PRP injections may result in mild swelling and inflammation. They can also result in tenderness at the injection sites. In most cases, these side effects will be minor and dissipate within a day or two of the treatment. This type of hair restoration treatment works on male and female patients and can be used for hair loss, no matter the cause.

How effective are PRP injections?

While we cannot guarantee how effective PRP injections will be in each patient, we have seen patients significantly increase hair density, thickness, and strength. PRP injections include growth factors that stimulate the regeneration of cells and tissues. The growth factors introduced into the scalp during a hair restoration treatment work to help heal damage while nourishing and enhancing the body's ability to begin to heal itself. With continued hair restoration treatments, the newly formed cells, scalp tissues, and hair will start to take hold and produce the type of results people seek.
