Losing hair can be frustrating, but it’s not cause for despair. While it can be caused by genetics or medical issues and affect both men and women, there are options available that can help you retain the hair you have and stimulate the natural growth of your own hair. PRP therapy, or plasma injection therapy for hair, is a nonsurgical treatment that can put the brakes on hair loss. It can also be combined with other hair loss procedures and medications for results that will have you putting your hats in the closet for good.
What Are Plasma Scalp Injections for Hair Growth?
PRP therapy stands for platelet-rich plasma therapy. For this groundbreaking plasma injection hair therapy, blood is drawn from your own body, typically from your arm in a small amount that is about as much for a normal blood test, and it is processed with a centrifuge. In the centrifuge, the fluids are spun rapidly to separate out the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells. PRP therapy is used for different purposes, from helping wounds heal faster, to promoting cartilage growth, to encouraging hair growth.
The plasma injections are administered to the scalp for hair growth, directly into the problem areas. This plasma stimulates follicles to regrow, increases blood flow to the hair follicles, and encourages hair to grow back thicker. PRP injections are noninvasive, so no extensive surgery is required. There is absolutely no scarring and there are no stitches used in this treatment!
Results Do Take Time
Plasma injections for hair growth are scheduled in four treatments that are spaced four weeks apart. Then maintenance treatments will need to be scheduled every six months. While the results of some cosmetic procedures, like hollow temple filler, are instantaneous, PRP therapy results will take time. Minimal effects can be seen shortly after therapy, but the majority of the results will be recognizable after about a year. Most people notice how their hair volume and thickness are boosted, as well as better hair retention and regrowth.
It’s Most Effective with Other Treatments and Medications
While plasma injections offer results as a solitary treatment for hair loss, they can be much more effective when combined with other procedures and products. We recommend ARTAS, a hair transplant procedure that uses precision robotics that intelligently harvest and graft in healthy hair follicles. This minimally invasive procedure leaves no scarring. And unlike other hair transplant procedures that are lengthy, ARTAS treatments are relatively fast and have no need for staples or sutures during the process. This also means you’ll have a quicker recovery time than other hair transplant procedures. The ARTAS treatment is a permanent solution in which results can be seen over the course of a year, as the new hair grows. Combining ARTAS with plasma scalp injections for hair helps kick-start and maximize the regrowth process while quickening the healing process of the grafted hair.
Hair loss and lack of luster can also be exacerbated by stress, fatigue, medications, seasonal changes, pregnancy, and other conditions. Using hair products scientifically designed to improve luster, thickness, and strength will help to improve your hair’s appearance and can stimulate new growth.

Hair Loss Can Affect Everyone, Even Women
While shedding hair is a normal occurrence that happens to everyone, shedding more than average is a cause for hair loss and a sign you should see an expert for a consultation. For women, hair loss can be caused by genes, medications, dieting, vitamin deficiency, pregnancy, stress, or aging. Women most commonly experience female-pattern hair loss, which starts with thinning at the top. Women who are more likely to experience hair loss are those that have recently had a baby, women over 40, those receiving chemotherapy, women experiencing menopause, those who use harsh chemicals on their hair, and those who wear hairstyles like tight-pulling ponytails.
Get Help at the First Sign of Hair Loss
If you think you’re losing hair, getting a consultation with an expert as soon as possible is the best course of action. They can help you determine the cause and type of your hair loss. Once that is determined, they can help you with what treatments and medications are most appropriate. If your hair loss is stress or hormone-induced, it can likely be easily reversed. Other causes may simply be treated with noninvasive treatments like plasma scalp injections for hair growth, or surgical procedures may offer the best results.
