Hair Loss Q & A

How does platelet-rich plasma address hair loss?

Your blood contains platelets, which contain tremendous healing factors that help boost hair growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from your own blood. Dr. Riddle takes a sample and then processes it to greatly concentrate the platelet count.

This PRP is effective in stimulating activity in dormant hair follicles and can lead to a return of hair growth and fullness.

What should I expect at a PRP hair restoration session?

Dr. Riddle injects PRP into your scalp with very fine needles. She expertly identifies the areas where you’ll receive the most benefit. The compound stimulates your hair follicles to grow more hair and strengthens existing hair.

Each PRP session lasts about 75 minutes.

How many hair loss treatments will I need?

Both men and women require multiple treatments, usually about 10 in total. These are applied over the course of 4-6 months. Dr. Riddle creates a customized treatment plan depending on the extent of your hair loss and how your hair follicles respond to the hair restoration treatments.

What other hair restoration treatments are available?

Dr. Riddle also recommends specific vitamins and laser therapy to address hair loss. Low-level laser therapy boosts circulation and thus stimulates hair follicles to grow hair. These additional methods may be used in addition to PRP therapy or on their own.

When are the results of hair loss treatments noticeable?

Hair restoration takes time. You’ll notice decreased shedding and improved hair texture and thickness after about two weeks of treatment. To achieve significant changes in hair length and fullness, it takes 3-6 months.

What are the benefits of PRP and other hair restoration therapies?

Restoring a full, thick head of hair boosts your look and self-confidence. Platelet-rich plasma therapy, laser treatments, and vitamins are noninvasive or minimally invasive, so you don’t have to undergo uncomfortable, messy hair transplants. Plus, these treatments are all-natural, which means you don’t have to worry about your body rejecting a chemical compound or medication.
