Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
At Northwest Hair Restoration in Tacoma, Washington, Dr. Robert Niedbalski offers platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy to stop hair loss in its tracks and stimulate hair regrowth. The treatment is ideal for those who are in the early stages of hair loss.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a concentration of platelets and plasma derived from your own blood. PRP is a rich source of specialized proteins called growth factors and cytokines that promote hair growth and healing.
The treatment is a simple in-office procedure. We obtain a small sample of your own blood and process it in our lab. The sample is spun at a high rate of speed in a special centrifuge to separate the PRP from other components of blood. Dr. Niedbalski will administer the PRP in a series of injections in the targeted areas of your scalp, which takes approximately 10 minutes. There is no downtime post-treatment, and you can resume your regular activities immediately after the procedure.
For optimal results, PRP injection therapy should be administered 3 - 4 times a year.
With or without hair restoration surgery, the use of PRP injection therapy can promote healing and boost the growth of new hair.
