PRP for Hair Loss in Philadelphia, PA

Hair loss affects more than 50 million men and women in the U.S. And whether it’s hereditary, caused by hormonal changes, or medical changes, it’s often unwanted. If you’re looking for a natural, minimally invasive option to thicken your hair, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair loss is one of the most effective treatment options. At Lumen, we use the most innovative technology available in the Philadelphia area to help you combat thinning hair and retain existing hair.

What Is PRP?

PRP is a concentration of platelets in the blood that contains regenerative growth factors. When used for hair loss, PRP releases these growth factors into the scalp to stimulate new natural hair growth and increase tissue repair to damaged follicles.

PRP Hair Loss Procedures

PRP can be used as a standalone treatment to regenerate hair. It can also be added to a hair transplant procedure to help retain existing hair and improve the success of the implanted hair follicles.

Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss

Men and women suffering from hair loss and shedding can benefit from the restorative effects of PRP. The growth factors found in PRP provide the following benefits:

The PRP Procedure

To prepare your PRP, blood is drawn and placed in a machine called a centrifuge. During centrifugation, the platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into your scalp to promote hair growth and healing. Your scalp is numbed with local anesthesia to minimize discomfort. The procedure is fairly quick, taking approximately 1-1.5 hours. For optimal results, we recommend 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart and maintenance treatments every 6-12 months.
