What is Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet rich plasma, or PRP, is a substance created using your own blood, and can be used in the treatment of male and female pattern baldness. The process begins by drawing a vial of your blood, which is then placed in a centrifuge. In the centrifuge, the red blood cells are separated from platelets and plasma. The resulting PRP is rich in proteins and growth factors which stimulate your body to awaken dormant hair follicles to reactivate them, causing them to once again produce healthy strands of hair. Come and try stem cell hair growth in NYC with Dr. Wolfeld.

How is PRP Used for Hair Loss?

Once PRP is created, it is strategically injected into areas of the scalp which are suffering from diminished hair growth. PRP has many uses in the medical field and has been used for decades as a healing product for:

  • Tendons
  • Ligaments
  • Muscles

PRP has also become widely used in facials as part of the increasingly popular “Vampire Facial.” The growth factors in PRP help to stimulate many of the body’s natural processes such as collagen and elastin production, tissue repair, and hair growth, and can be very effective for treating the early stages of hair loss.

What Can I Expect During PRP Hair Restoration in NYC?

Your PRP hair restoration in NYC will begin with Dr. Wolfeld drawing a vial of your own blood. Once the blood is separated and the PRP is ready for injection, Dr. Wolfeld will carefully administer a series of small injections to your scalp to encourage hair regrowth.

A topical numbing agent may be applied to provide more comfort during the process. The PRP injections will stimulate your hair growth and provide greater density of hair if your hair is becoming finer and thinner. Each treatment for stem cell hair growth in NYC typically takes between 30 and 45 minutes to complete.
