Hair loss can have a profound impact on your self-confidence and often leads to psychological distress, especially in women. Many men struggle with losing hair, but up to 40 percent of those suffering from hair loss or thinning are women. There are effective hair growth treatments available at JUVA Skin & Laser Center in Manhattan including PRP therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is found in your blood. These platelets are lush with growth factors, which help heal injuries and reverse hair loss. When isolated, PRP can be injected into your scalp to stimulate hair growth. At JUVA, we typically combine PRP treatments with microneedling.
There are a few steps involved in the PRP therapy process including:
- Isolating PRP: Blood is drawn from one of your veins, and a centrifuge is used to isolate and separate the platelets, which are then put into a vial.
- Applying PRP to your scalp: Once the PRP growth factors have been detached and processed, our experienced dermatologist will reintroduce the PRP into the areas of your scalp that have lost hair using a series of injections.
- Repeated treatments: It’s generally recommended to have at least four treatments of PRP to achieve the best results—although, some have seen improvement after just one session with Dr. Katz.
Research has consistently shown PRP is an effective tool for hair loss (alopecia).
