Who can benefit?
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Process involves drawing blood from a patient, spinning the blood, and separating out part of the plasma that has a very high concentration of platelets. Platelets are important in clotting, but also in wound healing because they contain hundreds of growth factors. Once the platelet rich plasma is generated, it is then injected back into the same patient's scalp, a process known as an autologous injection. The growth factors in PRP work to stimulate the natural growth factors present in the skin and hair follicles. Individual results may vary based on participation and individual health evaluation.
What does it cost?
Remember it takes several sessions for most patients to see results.
Single Session : $800
Package of 4 with 3-month supply of Votesse hair supplements: $3200 or 10% off
Who performs the procedure?
Board certified dermatologist Dr. Reena Jogi personally will evaluate each patient and perform the procedure themselves at their office, Village Dermatology.
How often are treatments done?
Treatment usually consists of three to five sessions spaced approximately 4-6 weeks apart. After a series of four sessions, maintenance therapy twice a year is recommended. The treatment is quick, easy, safe, and effective. Watch the video to see how it is done.
Does it hurt?
Our office uses a machine that blows cold air on your scalp during the procedure. While this air is blowing, the PRP is injected with tiny needles that feel like little bee stings. While there is a little discomfort, it is quite tolerable, and the injections are finished very quickly. Alternatively, nitrous oxide is also available in the office. Afterwards, patients feel a sensation of "fullness" in their scalp because of the volume of PRP that has been injected. Typically patients can resume their normal activity without any problems.
