Promote New Hair Growth
HPIHair Partners Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that is performed in our clinic by an experienced medical professional. PRP uses your bodies own growth factors, found in plasma, to enhance stimulation of new hair growth. Because PRP is collected from your own blood, it is 100% natural with no risk of allergic reaction or rejection.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment work?
Our blood plasma contains active growth factors which can promote hair growth. These growth factors have been extremely effective resulting in a fuller, healthier looking head of hair.
During your PRP session, a blood sample is collected and spun in a centrifuge that separates the PRP, platelet poor plasma (PPP), and red blood cells. A numbing agent is used for comfort and a thin needle is used to inject the PRP into the scalp with a special blend of vitamins. After your PRP session, microneedling can be preformed and the PPP can be applied for additional growth benefits.
For maximum efficiency, we recommend a series of 3 PRP treatments, 6-weeks apart. Maintenance therapy includes one PRP session every 3-6 months. A follicular scan and photographs will be taken to track progress. PRP can be used in conjunction with appropriate medications and low light laser therapy. Individual results may vary.

"I truly believe in PRP and doing maintenance treatments. Recently, many of my friends have commented on my hair. They have noticed an increase in hair growth. Also, it's nice when unsolicited people notice it. It gives me the reassurance to keep doing it." - Jessica F.
PRP for Hair Growth Study Results
PRP for hair growth is a relatively new procedure for the management of different types of alopecia, with androgenic alopecia (female and male pattern baldness) being the most common. In a study conducted by Khatu, More, Gokhale, Chayhan, & Bendsure (2014) PRP was found to be highly effective in the regrowth of hair with a high patient satisfaction rate. Over a 12-week period, the average gain of hair follicles per cm2 was 22.09.
