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 therapy, also known as PRP therapy, and nanofat for hair restoration are two of the most effective treatments options for hair loss. 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 your own blood that contains regenerative growth factors. When used for hair loss, PRP releases these growth factors into the scalp to stimulate natural hair growth and increase tissue repair to damaged follicles.

Regenerative Medicine procedures, including stem cell therapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy, have been used successfully for years in other fields of medicine, such as orthopedics and sports medicine. PRP therapy is proving to be increasingly effective in treating male- and female-pattern baldness. Numerous studies have shown it reduces hair loss, thickens hair, and increases the density of hair growth. Just last year, the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology published a review of clinical trials stating that PRP therapy was a promising treatment for androgenic alopecia.

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 Philadelphia Procedure

To prepare your PRP, blood is drawn and placed in a machine called a centrifuge. PRP is derived from your whole blood, so the platelets need to be separated from the red blood cells and white blood cells. This process occurs during centrifugation and the platelet concentration is increased. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected into your scalp to promote hair growth and the healing process. Your scalp is numbed with an anesthetic 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.

All PRP Is Not Created Equal

PRP Philadelphia Recovery and Results

PRP injections for hair loss require no recovery time and normal activities can be resumed immediately. For 24-48 hours following the procedure, there should be no alcohol or anti-inflammatory medications consumed (including aspirin), and no heavy exercise.

Since platelet-rich plasma injections use your own blood, the risks of an adverse reaction are rare. You may experience minor side effects such as temporary bleeding, and minimal pain and swelling at the injection sites.

Most Philadelphia patients will notice an increase in hair volume after approximately a month after your PRP treatment. You will continue to see volume improvements over 6-12 months following your treatments.

Nanofat for Hair Rejuvenation

Nanofat for hair regrowth (also called Autologous Lipocyte Micronized Injection or ALMI) is a revolutionary new procedure that uses your body’s regenerative growth factors in fat tissue to revive hair follicles. During the nanofat procedure, a small amount of fat is harvested from the love handles and then processed to separate fluids and produce a highly potent concentration of adipose-derived stem cells. Once the treatment area is numbed, the nanofat is precisely injected into the scalp. Nanofat not only strengthens weakened hair follicles but is also proven to assist with hair regrowth. This procedure produces long-lasting results with maintenance treatments every 2-3 years. Interval PRP treatments help maximize natural growth and stimulate new hair production.
