As we age, many men and women experience hair thinning or loss. Hair loss can contribute to adverse emotional side effects such as lowered self-esteem and loss of confidence. 

PRP treatments offered by PRP Expert Reena Jogi, MD in Houston, TX, provide patients with decreased hair loss and increased hair growth or length. 

Do you think PRP is the right solution for your hair loss or thinning concerns? Here’s everything you need to know about PRP treatments for hair loss!

PRP treatments are used to increase hair count, thickness, and the hair growth phase cycle. The innovative procedure is gaining popularity with patients interested in decreasing hair loss and thinning. PRP Treatments are used to rejuvenate the skin and hair for thicker, longer hair and less thinning over time.

How PRP Treatments Work

Can a natural treatment prevent hair from falling out?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, which is made from the patient’s own blood. The concentrated platelets collected in a blood sample are used to enhance the body’s natural growth factors and healing process. 

Growth factors are natural processes existent in the body and are accelerated by the PRP treatment. Results of the PRP treatment include the stimulation of hair growth and young-looking skin.

Plasma found in the blood contains both white blood cells and platelets. These natural components are rich in growth factors. When concentrated through the PRP process, the delivery of the plasma to the skin creates faster and more effective hair growth. 

Growth factors from the PRP treatments stimulate the activity of hair follicles. The increase of hair growth through PRP treatments is caused by:

  • Enhancing natural growth factors
  • Triggering the body’s natural healing process
  • Stimulating hair follicles
  • Increasing blood flow to the scalp

PRP Treatment Procedure

PRP hair restoration expert Reena Jogi, MD in Houston, TX, ensures that the PRP procedure is efficient and comfortable for patients. 

The process of the PRP treatment procedure is straightforward. After blood is drawn from the patient’s arm, plasma is separated from red blood cells using a centrifuge machine, which spins the tube of blood. Numerous injections are then made across the scalp at the level of the follicles. 

Platelet Rich Plasma treatments have been used clinically for years and offer many benefits, such as treatments for reconstructive and regenerative surgeries, arthritis, signs of aging, and other health issues. The process takes between thirty and sixty minutes. PRP treatments performed in-office with a PRP expert use local anesthesia to further increase patient comfort.

Results of PRP for Hair Loss

PRP treatments are used by PRP Hair Restoration Expert Reena Jogi, MD, to address a variety of hair loss causes and symptoms. Hair loss can occur due to a range of environmental, hormonal, and genetic factors.

PRP treatments are an effective solution for anyone experiencing hair loss or thinning. PRP treatments address hair loss and thinning caused by:

  • Aging
  • Androgenic Alopecia
  • Menopause and Andropause
  • Stress
  • Environmental factors
  • And more

PRP treatments effectively treat hair loss and thinning by stimulating hair follicles and increasing the active phase of hair growth. The process is the best solution for natural hair growth. Patients typically notice decreased shedding, which leads to increased hair growth and length.

PRP Treatment Cost

Depending on the area being treated, PRP treatments range in cost between $750 and $1,000 per session. To determine the cost of treatment and the number of sessions required for your hair restoration goals, contact Reena Jogi, MD, the PRP Hair Restoration expert, for a consultation appointment.

Many patients find for optimal hair regrowth, PRP treatments are scheduled every three to six months. Receiving PRP treatments on a long-term basis can continue to stimulate the body’s growth factors and stem cells responsible for increased hair growth and decreased hair thinning. The results of PRP treatments can be enhanced with other O-T-C medications prescribed by the dermatologist. 

PRP Safety and Side Effects

PRP offers a natural and organic solution to hair loss concerns. Since the process uses the patient’s blood, there is little to no risk of side effects caused by medications or inflammatory immune responses.

Many patients do not require numbing during the gentle and quick PRP procedure. Some patients experience mild bruising at the injection site following the treatment. PRP treatments require minimal downtime.
