Regrow, Renew, Rejuvenate: PRP Hair Restoration at Elite Plastic Surgery

We understand how hair loss can affect your confidence and overall happiness. Our PRP Hair Restoration treatment is part of our effort to offer advanced solutions that can help you regain your best look and feel. Our team is dedicated to guiding you through the process of revitalizing your hair with this safe and effective procedure.

The Science Behind PRP

PRP therapy uses the healing power of your own blood to help restore hair. During this treatment, a small sample of your blood is taken and spun in a machine called a centrifuge to separate it into its different parts.

Component Function
Red Blood Cells Transport oxygen
White Blood Cells Fight infection
Platelets Aid in clotting and growth factors
Plasma The liquid part of your blood

The platelets play a crucial role in healing wounds and regenerating tissues. After they are separated, the platelet-rich part is injected back into the scalp in areas where the hair is thinning.

Growth factors within platelets include the following:

  • Epidermal Growth Factor: Stimulates cell growth.
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor: Promotes healing.
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor: Improves blood flow.

By reintroducing these growth factors, PRP therapy helps stimulate dormant hair follicles to enter an active growth phase.

Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss

  • PRP sparks natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle—enhancing hair shaft thickness
  • As PRP uses your own blood, the risk of allergic reactions is significantly reduced
  • Recovery after PRP sessions is short, allowing you to return to daily activities promptly
  • PRP can be effectively combined with other hair loss procedures or medications to boost outcomes
  • Particularly useful for androgenetic alopecia—commonly known as male and female pattern baldness—PRP has shown benefits across different hair loss conditions
  • If you're not a candidate for hair transplant surgery, PRP can be an alternative or an addition to your hair loss treatment regimen

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP for Hair Loss?

PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy may be suitable if you:

  • Have mild to moderate hair thinning or hair loss
  • Are in good health without underlying disorders that could hinder healing
  • Have realistic expectations about the results
  • Prefer a non-surgical treatment option
  • Are in the earlier stages of hair loss

The following conditions may affect your suitability for PRP:

  • You're on blood thinners or have a history of heavy smoking
  • You have been diagnosed with conditions like chronic liver disease, skin diseases, or cancer
  • You have any blood disorders or platelet dysfunction syndromes

What to Expect Before, During, and After

Initial Consultation at Elite Plastic Surgery

During your first appointment at Elite Plastic Surgery, we will concentrate on learning about your hair restoration objectives and assessing whether PRP therapy is a good fit for you. We will review your medical history and discuss past hair loss treatments. It's crucial to have realistic expectations and to express any concerns or questions you may have.


Before your PRP session, you'll be given specific instructions to ensure the best outcome. These typically include:

  • Avoiding blood-thinning medications, such as aspirin, for a week before treatment
  • Not using harsh hair products or treatments for a few days before the procedure

The PRP Injection Process

The PRP Hair Restoration involves three main steps performed during a single visit:

  • Blood Draw: A sample of your blood is taken, usually from the arm.
  • Processing: The blood is placed in a centrifuge to isolate PRP.
  • Injection: The PRP is then injected into the scalp, where hair growth is desired.

You may feel a small amount of discomfort during the injections, but a local anesthetic can be used to minimize pain.

Recovery and Results

After the treatment, you may feel some tenderness or swelling at the injection sites, but this usually disappears within a day or two. It's important to follow the aftercare instructions for proper healing. Here's what you can expect:

  • Avoid washing your hair or doing strenuous activities for at least 48 hours
  • It may take several weeks before you start to see improvement in hair growth
  • You might need multiple sessions, about a month apart, to get the best results
