PRP Works Wonders
On Thinning Hair!
For hair restoration injections we use the technique of harvesting PRP and injecting into the dermal layers of your scalp.
During the procedure a topical numbing agent is applied to the target area. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is extracted from the patient's blood. Then additional numbing injections are given prior to the PRP injection & micro-needling of the scalp. The treatment generally takes 60 minutes to complete. For best results, it is recommended that patients undergo as many as three treatments, with at least a month of healing time between each session.
The procedure has no associated down time.

The End Result
Platelets promote cell growth and regeneration. As the term “platelet-rich plasma” suggests, platelets are generally about five times more concentrated in PRP than in regular blood. When injected deep into the scalp to reach the bottom of the hair follicle, stimulation of a specialized population of cells named dermal papilla cells happens. These cells play a critical role in hair growth.
It is important to note that it can take time to see the complete results of a PRP injection but they are lasting. In fact, most patients enjoy the results of their treatment and continued improvement for six to 12 months after the original injection.
Most patients are very happy with the results of their PRP injection procedures and studies show that the results of treatment are oftentimes better than the results from topical creams such as minoxidil (Rogaine) and other non-invasive procedures.
The End Result
We recommend a peel to accelerate the natural exfoliation process which will keep your skin looking fresh.
For those with sensitive skin or minor issues an enzyme peel produces the following results:
Controls acne, shrinks pores, and removes blackheads
Diminishes fine lines and wrinkles, and some scarring
Reduces age spots and redness
For those with more severe issues the chemical peel is best when it comes to:
Diminishing fine lines and wrinkles
Smoothing pigmentation and acne scars
Shrinking large pores
Tightening sagging skin
Depending on your skin type and need we can help find a treatment that is right for you.
What Does PRP Do?
Studies suggest that Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Injections as a treatment for thinning hair stimulates follicles, enhances microcirculation, and promotes regrowth of new healthy hair.
The highest quality PRP is harvested from your own blood, providing a naturally occurring injectable for cellular support.
PRP are regenerative powerhouses which contain an extremely high concentration of various growth factors and other bioactive proteins. For people with thinning hair there is a growing body of evidence that PRP helps many types of hair loss; both as a standalone treatment for thinning hair and as an add-on therapy to those undergoing hair transplants.
Is the procedure painful?
As with any injection type therapy there is some pain & irritation. The scalp can be a very sensitive area, so we take every precaution to limit the pain to a tolerable level. During the procedure a topical numbing agent is applied as well as additional numbing injections to the target area to make the patient as comfortable as possible. Patients generally experience a feeling of tender skin for a few days afterwards.
How many sessions will I need?
Typically patients need more than one treatment. It's common for patients, depending on the severity of the issue that is being addresses, to need 3 or more treatments.
How long does it take?
The process usually takes around 60 minutes, but can take a little longer in some cases.
How is urinary incontinence diagnosed?
The condition is diagnosed mainly on the pattern of symptoms. Keeping a urinary diary (a record of daily urination, urine accidents and fluid intake) can help your health care provider determine patterns and establish the working diagnosis. The provider will also ask questions about your general health, your history of incontinence, past surgeries, illnesses and any medication you're taking. A physical examination, including a pelvic exam, will be done, and a urine sample will be tested.
Sometimes other, more complicated tests may be needed to establish or confirm the diagnosis or to guide treatment.
How does incontinence relate to age?
Incontinence should not be considered to be a normal condition of aging. Elderly patients should be evaluated in essentially the same way that patients of any age should be evaluated. Incontinence is certainly more common as patients age, but incontinence can be seen in children, adolescents, and adults.
Why should I care about my bladder control problem?
People often live with incontinence without seeking help. Many cases can be cured or controlled with appropriate treatment. Urinary incontinence is the second leading cause of institutionalizing elderly people. The problem can contribute to decreased socialization, decreased quality of life and depression. Getting up at night to urinate also increases the risk of falling and fracturing a hip.
