One of our patients talks about her PRP Hair treatment
Hi Dr. Kelley. I wanted to tell you that after my last PRP treatment, my hair grew in. Not at 100%, but about 75-80%. I am very happy. Hopefully, this is the last time I will need this treatment. I want to tell you again. Thank you so much. I am very happy with my results”

A full head of hair is considered attractive and youthful. Men and women take pride in their hair and consider it key to feeling confident about their appearance.
Hair loss and hair thinning are becoming more common. With the increased popularity of hairstyles and hair extension procedures which can put pressure on the scalp and hair follicles, these problems are more common in people of all ages. Androgenetic alopecia is common in males and can occur at an earlier age due to genetics. Female pattern baldness is common and can be related to hormone changes.
Our Hair Restoration procedure uses PRP-platelet rich plasma which is derived from your blood. PRP is rich in growth factors that can rejuvenate the hair follicles.
We specifically use a high concentration PRP which has a platelet count that is 7-8 times the concentration of platelets in whole blood. This will provide more growth factors for improving hair loss.
A 60 ml blood draw with a double spin system is required to obtain the highest concentration of platelets.
With this stronger PRP, we are able to do fewer treatments and and we see more effective results.
Our Hair Restoration program incorporates PRP which is injected into the area of thinning. After the procedure, platelets release multiple growth factors. These growth factors decrease inflammation in the area, increase blood flow and can rejuvenate the hair follicle.
This procedure is successful in areas of hair thinning versus areas where there is total hair loss. It will not work if the hair follicles are dead. Typically new growth can be seen in 2 months and the best result in 6 months after the last session.
Maintenance treatments are required and timing varies from patient to patient, every 6 months to every year are typical.
- 1st High Concentration PRP hair session
- Home use of topical growth factors
- 2nd High Concentration PRP hair session
- Maintenance sessions every 6-12 months
In addition to PRP, it is recommended that nutritional support and a healthy home hair care regimen be used to maintain and support hair growth.
