PRP Hair Treatment NYC
Hair loss or thinning hair is a common condition experienced by both women and men. It can happen at any age and can be attributed to a number of causes such as heredity, stress or a medical condition known as alopecia. To help patients suffering from hair loss for any of the reasons mentioned above, the professionals at Alinea Medical offer the most innovative hair loss treatments to restore the hair’s thickness, fullness and healthy appearance.
The most recent breakthrough procedure that’s very effective for restoring falling or thinning hair is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. PRP is a highly advanced, minimally-invasive cellular regeneration technique with years of research to back it up. It has been used successfully in sports medicine and as a cosmetic treatment known as the Vampire Facial and Vampire Facelift®.
PRP hair treatment is well documented to help patients regrow hair without surgery or chemical agents. Ideal candidates for PRP hair loss therapy are those who still have functioning hair follicles that have simply atrophied or become dormant due to age or genetics. PRP may not be a suitable option for treatment of baldness as it cannot resuscitate hair follicles that are no functioning.
How PRP Hair Treatment in NYC Works
The Mechanism Behind PRP Hair Restoration
According to research, PRP therapy helps to regrow new hair in a number of ways. Within two weeks following their first PRP treatment, test subjects appeared to have “increased epidermal thickness, number of new hair follicles and keratinocytes (cells which produce keratin).” There was also considerable increase in vascular formation (small blood vessels) at the treatment site compared to baseline subjects. Clinicians observed that PRP therapy can promote natural hair growth, increase hair counts and thickness by boosting blood supply to the hair follicles. The same clinical study also noted that no complications were present in any of the participants, further strengthening the safety claims of PRP treatment for hair loss.

The PRP Hair Loss Treatment Process
Frequently Asked Questions About PRP Hair Loss NYC
PRP hair restoration treatment involves using your own blood platelets to stimulate hair follicles that are thinning or have stopped producing hair. This technique has shown to be highly effective at slowing down hair loss and helping patients grow thicker, stronger and healthier hair.
The number of PRP sessions needed to achieve satisfactory results will be determined by your goals and the condition of your hair. Initially, your doctor may recommend starting with several treatments spaced four weeks apart. After that, you will be required to have additional treatments 2-3 times per year to maintain results.
The entire procedure normally takes less than 30 minutes. Harnessing the PRP only takes 10-15 minutes (this including drawing blood and centrifuge). The PRP treatment itself can take anywhere from 5-15 minutes, depending on whether other adjunct treatments such as Microneedling are performed.
Individual results with PRP therapy can vary. There is some noticeable improvement several weeks after each PRP treatment, full results can take up to 6-12 months.
Providing patients have dormant hair follicles, PRP can reactivate them to produce thicker, fuller and healthier hair. This is possible because the growth hormones in the patient’s blood platelets work to stimulate the inactive hair follicles. After several treatments, PRP therapy can help to improve blood supply and nutrient delivery to the hair follicles.
Since PRP involves injections, there may be some minor discomfort. There may be some pain management options available, however. Your doctor will discuss all the treatment details and anaesthetic options with you prior to treatment.
The advantage of PRP is there’s no downtime immediately after the procedure. You are advised not to shower or wash your hair until the evening. Additionally, you’ll be advised to avoid using harsh or irritating hair products for 48 hours.
No, PRP does not cure baldness which is a medical condition known as Alopecia. As long as you still have dormant hair follicles, evidence shows that regular treatments can significantly improve follicle count and hair density.
A comprehensive consultation and assessment with Dr. Ammar will help you determine if PRP hair restoration is right for you. After reviewing your health history and condition of your hair, you’ll be advised if PRP can help you achieve your hair enhancement goals.
