How does PRP treat hair loss?
PRP has natural growth factors that are derived from your own body’s blood cells. For both male and female pattern hair loss, PRP therapy involves administering platelet-rich plasma to the areas of the scalp or area of the body experiencing hair loss. With the correct amount of PRP and the level of injection, PRP treatments have shown effective results for preventing hair loss and regrowing fuller and thicker hair in those areas — even where hair growth has stopped. PRP may also be used to promote hair growth in the beard areas. Consult today.
What is Platelet-Rich Plasma and how does PRP work?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is a high concentration of platelets surrounded by its own plasma. By withdrawing some of your own blood (similarly to a lab test), PRP is derived from your own body by separating the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma using special centrifuge technology. An expert physician will administer the PRP via precise injection into the area being treated. Using your own PRP is effective for rejuvenation procedures (similar to an injectable filler) for the face, body, skin and hair. It can promote healing of the skin, restore volume loss, and treat hair loss in men and women.

Male and Female Pattern Baldness
Commonly experienced symptomsof female and male pattern baldness include: receding hair lines, hair thinning on the crown (bald spot), thinning where the hair is parted, and significant volume loss, even an appearance of irregular patches of missing hair.
Women and men experience alopecia for a variety of genetic, hormonal, and lifestyle factors. Baldness, often associated as a sign of aging, is a hereditary trait and can start amongst even younger individuals. For those experiencing hair loss, it can be extremely difficult to deal with mentally and socially, and many have resorted to temporary or permanent coverups (such as sprays/powders or tattooing) along with an ongoing search for the proper hair loss remedies to prevent losing more hair. Hair transplantation candidates may have sufficient follicles from other areas to move with advanced techniques.
PRP treatment for hair loss provides hair loss patients with a natural treatment with effective results to regrow hair as well as add volume. PRP Treatments are available at our Woodbury, New York offices. Dr. Anthony Buglino is a board certified surgeon performing cosmetic procedures for the face and body.
