What Is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Hair thinning is a major concern for many men and women, whether it is caused by genetics, age, hormones, medical conditions, or years of overstyling. With recent advances in research in the hair restoration field, new procedures are being created to help combat the issue. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is an advanced nonsurgical treatment for people that is effective in slowing, stopping, and even reversing baldness. PRP has shown promising outcomes in patients with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. Board-certified family nurse practitioner Catherine Curtin at Beauty & Fly Aesthetic Wellness offers PRP therapy for hair loss in Bridgehampton and Bronxville, NY. By combining a powerful solution of hair growth factors and bioactive proteins, Catherine can help to strengthen the function of your hair, leading to longer, thicker, healthier locks.

Am I A Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
Anyone with thinning hair may be able to benefit from PRP therapy, but this treatment tends to be more effective in those who are still in the early stages of hair loss. PRP is best suited for those with androgenic alopecia, an inherited type of hair loss that typically occurs along the top part of the head. In women, this might appear as a broadening part with normal hair thickness on the back of the scalp. Patients with areas of "weak quality" hair growth on the scalp with still functioning hair follicles usually have the best results with PRP hair regrowth treatments.
How Does PRP for Hair Loss Work?
A minimally invasive process, PRP therapy for hair loss is a short one-hour in-office visit. The treatment begins with obtaining a small amount of your blood and placing it in a special machine, which spins it at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood elements. After that, a local anesthetic will be used on your scalp and the platelet-rich plasma is introduced into areas of your head or eyebrows that are bald or thinning. Finally, microneedling is performed on the area to cause micro-trauma and micro-channels into the skin, which activates the PRP and enables it to seep deep into the skin.
What to Expect After PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
There's absolutely no downtime after this process, with almost no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some discoloration, minimal swelling, and mild discomfort to the treated areas. These symptoms can last up to two days. While results differ for each individual, aesthetic results are generally seen approximately 4 – 6 months after the initial treatment and can continue to improve up to a complete year following treatment. As PRP is not a permanent option for reversing hair loss, repeat sessions are recommended every 12 – 18 months. It's essential to be aware that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in places where you're already bald. It is utilized to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce fuller, healthier, longer hair fibers.
