What is PRP Hair Growth Treatment?
PRP Hair Growth Treatment is a non-surgical option to help restore loss of hair and thicken existing hair. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections are concentrated with specialized proteins and growth factors that are commonly used to help the body recover from injuries. PRP hair therapy uses the body’s own blood platelets to promote new hair growth in balding or receding areas where existing hair follicles are present. This treatment increases hair count and hair thickness and speeds up the growth phase of the hair cycle without surgery or downtime. This treatment is performed at The Skin Center in Pittsburgh, PA.
Benefits Of PRP Hair Growth Treatment:
- Stimulates hair growth in balding areas
- Thickens existing hair
- Increases hair count and regrowth

PRP treatment for hair loss is a three-step process in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into targeted areas of the scalp where current hair follicles exist.An expert RN injector begins the treatment by drawing a small collection of blood from the patient’s arm. Next, the blood is transferred to a centrifuge and spun down into three separate layers: Platelet Poor Plasma, Platelet Rich Plasma, and red blood cells. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then extracted and prepared for injection into the areas of hair loss to stimulate hair growth.
The injection process is the quickest part of the treatment. Injections are made across the scalp, approximately half an inch apart in the areas of thinning hair. PRP is directly injected into the patient’s hair follicles that need increased hair growth.
