Sullivan Dermatology is proud to offer an advanced and successful solution for hair loss. Platelet rich plasma therapy, (PRP Therapy), can restore healthy, full hair for men and women dealing with thinning hair and bald spots. PRP therapy employs high concentrations of platelets from your own blood to help promote hair growth, and prolong the growing phase of the hair cycle. It is based on research showing that platelets are a rich source of growth-factors that can stimulate cell growth and collagen production.
During your treatment, we will draw your blood and concentrate it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets-and-growth-factor-rich plasma from the blood. The platelet-enriched plasma is then injected into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. You may experience a mild feeling of pressure at the injection site, but otherwise, the treatment has virtually no side-effects. Dr. Sullivan administers the treatments monthly for three months to four months; touch ups may then be performed every six months. Your injection schedule will depend on your age as well as your genetics and hair-loss pattern and amount of hair loss.
Patients generally see an improvement after three months of ongoing treatment. After that time, patients can expect significant improvement in hair growth. Schedule a PRP Therapy consultation today to learn more about this gratifying transformation available at Sullivan Dermatology.
