How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma Work for Hair Restoration?
Your Krauss Dermatology provider will begin your treatment by taking a sample of your blood. Spinning this blood in a centrifuge separates it into layers using a proprietary system called Selphyl. PRP forms a layer that contains plasma, the liquid component of blood, and an enhanced number of platelets. These are activated by Selphyl’s advanced system prior to injection.
When injected into your scalp, healing and growth factors in the PRP activate dormant hair follicles. They also stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, nourishing your follicles for more robust hair growth.
How Much are Platelet-Rich Plasma Injections?
Platelet-rich plasma treatments usually require a series of injections, and costs will vary depending on your location, your provider, and how many treatments you need. A series of 4 treatments costs $2,400. Maintenance treatments are $600 each. Since each person’s pattern of hair loss is different, a consultation will help us estimate your expected cost.
Does PRP Work With Other Hair Restoration Treatments?
Because PRP uses components of your own blood, it will not interfere with other hair restoration treatments. PRP provides a powerful boost to the results of prescription medications, supplements, topical treatments, and other hair growth methods. We will recommend products that work synergistically with PRP to give you even better hair growth.
