What is PRP?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a natural, safe, and non-surgical solution for thinning hair. The simple, safe, and effective process uses your own blood plasma to stimulate hair follicle growth, leading to thicker, fuller hair.
Benefits of PRP include: stimulating hair growth, reducing bald spots and thinning hair, safe and simple to administer, and no risk of rejection from your body since your own plasma is used.
How It Works
Plasma in your blood is protein-rich and known to promote cell growth and regeneration. PRP uses rich plasma from your own blood to combat hair loss.
The procedure is simple and non-surgical. First, blood is drawn and passed through a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood around to separate components, allowing us to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. Your plasma is then injected into your scalp. The process stimulates your hair follicles and encourages growth — just by injecting plasma from your own blood!
We recommend 3 sessions, 30 days apart for the initial treatment plan. After that, one booster session per year is usually more than adequate to keep your results.
Only at DiStefano do we include a fourth treatment of PRP at no extra charge with the purchase of your initial 3 sessions.
The simple procedure is safe and effective. It is best suited for hormone-related hair loss, which can affect both men and women, and is most effective on thinning hair. If hair follicles have been completely lost, PRP may not have an effect. In this case, you may see better results from a surgical procedure such as FUT or FUE.
