About PRP for Hair Loss

Are you suffering from male or female pattern baldness or hair loss? PRP therapy is quickly gaining popularity for hair loss treatment because it is an effective, minimally invasive treatment. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is your body’s natural healing properties found in the blood. The healing and growth factors in PRP can stimulate hair follicles and hair regrowth for a thicker, fuller head of hair and is a scientifically proven benefit for hair regrowth.

Who is a Candidate?

Men and women with early hair thinning can benefit the most from platelet-rich plasma treatment, especially those with androgenic alopecia. Severe balding may require more invasive methods such as a hair transplant to achieve optimal results. PRP is safe for most patients because the PRP injections are obtained from your own blood. There are no foreign ingredients or chemicals used in the injections.

Dr.Willis and staff are incredible! They treat their patients with such high respect and make you feel right at home during your procedure. They are experienced and dedicated to making things right. You leave the office feeling really good about yourself and the work they’ve performed! I’ve had Fillers and Botox but would recommend anything!

Dr. Willis did a wonderful job with my surgery. He explained everything very well beforehand so I knew what to expect throughout the process. I would highly recommend Dr. Willis for any plastic surgery procedures. His patient care coordinator Leah is excellent and always available to assist with any questions and concerns.

Dr. Willis and his team are phenomenal! From their patient-centered care to their willingness to collaborate with other physicians my experience was a resounding success. I highly recommend having a conversation with them.

Dr. Willis and his staff were amazing! Very calm, clean and professional atmosphere. They were inviting and attentive. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I went in for a consultation and had my lip filler procedure in the same day. Quick and painless. The results are perfect. I highly recommend Dr.Willis and taking advantage of the referral program. 10/10!

PRP Treatment

PRP treatments use a three-step process. First, a vial of blood will be drawn from your arm to harvest the platelets used during treatment. The blood is rapidly spun in a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the PRP necessary for your injections. Once the blood has been separated, a concentration of platelet-rich plasma is injected into your scalp in the areas of hair loss or balding. A topical anesthetic or regional nerve blocks can be applied before these injections to minimize your discomfort during treatment.

Recovery

Recovery from PRP injections is minimal and most patients can resume all normal activities immediately after treatment. However, you should avoid hair dyes and other products with harsh chemicals so that you do not damage the healing injection sites on your scalp or the newly forming hair follicles. Results can typically be seen 6-12 months after treatment and the new hair growth will continue to grow naturally with the rest of your hair.
