PRP for Hair Loss
ARE YOU LOOKING FOR A HAIR LOSS SOLUTION?
About 50 million American men and 30 million women have male- or female-pattern baldness. It can begin early in life, but is much more common after the age of 50, when more than 50% of men will experience some kind of hair loss.
PRP is equally effective as a way to counteract female pattern baldness as it is for our male patients. The best candidates for a PRP treatment are patients who have slight to moderate hair loss, who want to take charge and regain confidence in their look.
PRP THERAPY THAT PROMOTES HEALING IN INJURED JOINTS MAY HELP RESTORE YOUR LOST HAIR.
How does a Platelet-Rich-Plasma Treatment for Hair Loss Work?
Your PRP treatment at Innova Wellness Spa offers solutions that are two-fold: the procedure will stimulate hair regrowth while working to slow down future hair loss. As the name suggests, the procedure works through injections of blood with a particularly high concentration of plasma, injected directly into the patient’s hair follicles.
The full procedure takes less than 30 minutes. We will draw a sample of your blood, then spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. Then, it will be extracted and injected into the balding areas of your scalp. Most patients report minimal discomfort, if any, and return to work the next day.
Patients will return once a month for three months for another injection, then once every three to six months thereafter.
The procedure uses your own blood, and risks are minimal. Although highly unlikely, risks can include bleeding, hematoma, infection, and nerve damage. Patients who take anticoagulants and those with an active scalp infection, chronic liver disease or a low platelet count should not have PRP.

Who Can Benefit from PRP Injections?
Both men and women. Male balding and hair thinning is talked about extensively, but women do not often get the same benefit of widespread information. The fact is that women can lose hair, too, due to several different factors.
Those suffering from androgenic alopecia or other forms of alopecia. This is also known as male/female pattern baldness. It is a hereditary condition that affects around 80 million people in the United States alone.
A sizeable age range of people. Many successful clinical trials have been tested with people ranging from 18 to 72 years of age.
Those suffering from hair loss due to high stress levels. Since this condition is not chronic, it can be treated rather easily.
Those who have recently experienced hair loss. The more recent the hair loss occurred, the better your chances are of fixing it before it is too late for PRP injections.
Those with thinning or balding hair, but not completely bald people. PRP injections are meant to thicken, strengthen, and grow hair from follicles that are still functioning, however weakly this may seem.
