PRP Hair Restoration
PRP Hair Restoration, also called ProPlasma™, is a non-surgical treatment that utilizes the body’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP) to help restore hair in patients with pattern hair loss. We’re proud to offer PRP hair restoration procedures in both Austin and Houston Texas!

How is PRP Hair Restoration performed?
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then spun down in a centrifuge and prepared by isolating the platelet rich plasma component, which naturally contains a large amount of growth factors. The plasma is mixed with a small amount of calcium to activate the platelets and this solution is re-injected into the patient’s scalp in areas that are experiencing hair loss or thinning.

How many treatments are needed?
Recommended protocol includes an initial series of three monthly treatments, followed by maintenance treatments approximately every 3 to 6 months.
Who is a good candidate for the treatment?
Anyone experiencing thinning hair of the scalp is potentially a candidate.
How long do results last?
The results of a series of PRP Hair Restoration treatments are not permanent since they only help to keep existing hair in the growing phase. Without maintenance treatments, hair density on the scalp will return to baseline (pre-treatment levels). However, results can be actively maintained with subsequent treatments every 3-6 months.
What other areas can be treated?
PRP injections may also be used to help improve thinning eyebrows. PRP Restoration is also commonly performed on the face, neck, and hands, where the platelet rich plasma is applied via microneedling rather than injected.
