PRP Hair Restoration by Dr. Hughey

PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma is a revolutionary new treatment that harnesses your body’s own ability to stimulate hair growth. We do a simple blood draw from your arm and behind the scene, we siphon off the plasma that contains your platelets that are naturally rich in growth factors. Platelets stimulate wound healing and cellular growth.

We inject PRP into your scalp, and when the PRP comes into contact with your senescent or sleepy hair follicles, these growth factors can stimulate these hairs to wake up and start growing again.  PRP offers both men and women a chemical-free option to stimulate hair growth.  What could be better than your own Growth Factors? Nothing added- 100% natural and all yours.

We start with a series of three treatments spaced 6 weeks apart.  After this initial series, if you are improving, we continue the PRP treatments approximately every 8-12 weeks to maintain the stimulation to the hair follicles.

Come in now for your PRP consultation with one of our providers to hear more about how PRP works.
