Thinning Hair? We Care!

By: Dr. Andrea Hui Austin



Hair loss affects both men and women, and can be devastating to self image and emotional well-being. While over 85% of men experience hair loss by age 50, women account for 40% of hair loss sufferers. We are pleased to offer Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, an exciting nonsurgical treatment for patients who are suffering from non-scarring types of hair loss. PRP is a safe and natural procedure that harnesses the powerful regenerative potential of your own plasma to encourage hair regrowth.

PRP contains platelets and other growth factors that encourage growth by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in and around the hair follicle. We have already been using PRP to enhance our MicroPen procedures, and seen beautiful results. Platelets promote healing, accelerate the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, respond to injury, and support new follicle growth. Using PRP in hair restoration helps stimulate the inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. Even if the patient has

experienced many years of hair loss, these follicles can “wake up” and start growing hair again; thin hair shafts will thicken, and patients can see and feel more hair.

The PRP procedure is performed in-office. After drawing your blood, we isolate your unique plasma, numb the scalp and inject the PRP into the treatment areas. You can wash and style your hair normally the next day. We recommend 4 initial PRP treatments spaced 1 month apart, and maintenance treatments every 4-6 months. Results are often visible after the first treatment. While this is not an FDA approved treatment, and your individual results may vary, we are excited to help you achieve the best, most healthy head of hair possible.
