Hair loss affects men and women, and traditional techniques require extensive surgery and recovery. PRP hair restoration is a minimally invasive treatment that is proven to slow hair loss and help regrow healthy hair. Texas Dermatology offers PRP hair restoration for residents of San Antonio, Kenedy, New Braunfels, and other areas of Texas.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration relies on platelet-rich plasma from your blood to stimulate hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that contains growth factors that can trigger new cell development within the tissues. PRP has been used throughout the medical community for decades, and now the power of growth factors has been harnessed for hair restoration for men and women.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
The cost of PRP hair restoration does vary and is based upon the degree of hair loss, size of the treatment area, and the number of treatments that are needed for best results. This information is determined during your consultation with one of our dermatology practitioners. After the appointment, we will provide a total cost and explain our financing options through CareCredit®.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration?
- Does not require incisions, so there are no scars
- Completely natural hair growth pattern
- No downtime
Can PRP Hair Restoration Help With Male Pattern Baldness?
PRP hair restoration does help with male pattern baldness. This type of hair loss is genetic and causes a distinctive pattern of balding that begins at the temples and makes the hairline recede. Men also experience thinning and balding on the crown.
Can PRP Hair Restoration Help With Hair Loss in Women?
Women tend to experience a general thinning of hair over the entire scalp. PRP hair restoration is a great option for women because we can focus on the areas that are losing hair without surgery, hair transplants, or a lengthy recovery.
How is PRP Hair Restoration Performed?
PRP hair restoration begins with us extracting the platelet-rich plasma from a sample of your blood. Very little blood is needed for the procedure. The blood is processed in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from other components. The PRP can be applied directly to the scalp when combined with microneedling.
What is the Recovery Like After PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration does not require any recovery or aftercare.
What is the Prognosis After PRP Hair Restoration?
Your hair has a standard growth cycle, and you may notice that some hairs fall out after the treatment. This is normal. Those follicles will regrow new hair shafts, and over time, the shafts will grow longer and stronger than before your PRP hair restoration treatment.
