Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss Available at Chic la Vie Med Spa In Las Vegas
What is PRP treatment for hair restoration?
PRP non-surgical hair restoration consists of the application of your own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) topically and by injection into the area of thinning hair to stimulate new hair growth and improve health and texture of existing hair.
How does PRP treatment work?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. Highly concentrated plasma contains platelets that release growth factors; these growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of your existing hair.
Is there any discomfort and downtime with this treatment?
We use a numbing agent to make the treatment very comfortable. There may be minimal tenderness and mild swelling in the injection sites for 3-5 days following the treatment.
How long does it take for a single treatment?
The entire treatment, including preparation of your PRP in our office, cleaning your treatment area, and injection of the PRP into the scalp typically takes less than an hour for most patients.
What results should I expect from my PRP treatment?
PRP contains a rich and concentrated mix of cytokines and growth factors which can be activated and injected into the areas of thinning hair; leading to stimulation of dormant hair follicles and hair regeneration. It has been observed that, at the very least, PRP treatment improves hair health, strength, individual hair diameter and prevents further hair loss which can maintain the current number of hairs and improve the health and quality of your current hairs; and at best induce new hair growth the degree of which varies from person to person.
PRP has been shown to induce new hair regeneration in both male and female pattern hair loss, decelerate hair loss in men and women, make finer hairs thicker, Increase density and strength of hairs. Medications, nutrients and Extracellular matrix can be added to PRP to enhance the results of hair regeneration following PRP treatments.
How many treatments will I need for hair restoration?
We recommend starting with 4 treatments, four weeks apart for the best results for most people with thinning hair as an initial treatment. You will need maintenance treatments every one to two years thereafter to maintain the results of your PRP hair regeneration treatment.
How soon will I see results from my PRP treatment?
Although you will start to see improvement in hair texture, a thickness of hair shaft and growth of new hairs in the treated area within two weeks after treatment, it typically takes three to six months from your initial treatment to see measurable results.
Does PRP treatment need to be repeated for the prevention of hair loss?
Unfortunately, the results of PRP treatment for hair regrowth are not permanent. Nothing can change your genetic predisposition for hair loss and hair loss will return if no maintenance type treatment is done. Most patients male pattern hair loss and female pattern hair loss who respond to PRP hair loss treatment, require repeat treatment anywhere between 12-24 months after their initial treatment.
As with your initial treatment, it may take another three to six months to see measurable improvement in hair density. Subsequently, PRP may need to be repeated periodically depending on your individual response to PRP therapy, your genetics, the extent of your hair loss and if you are using any other adjunctive treatments with your PRP hair loss treatments such as topical minoxidil, oral Propecia, etc. Additional treatment frequency will also depend on your hair treatment goals.
What are the side effects of PRP treatment for thinning hair?

- There is a small risk of bruising and of infection at the injection site.
