Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy has a fantastic range of applications due to its regenerative properties. It can promote tissue healing, rejuvenate aging skin, and even stimulate hair growth on the scalp. Face Forward in Houston, Texas, offers this premier treatment for patients wishing to restore hair on the scalp using this natural but incredibly effective therapy.
A Youth Elixir for Your Scalp
Hair thinning and loss are natural progressions of the aging process for most men and women as we age. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) injection is a novel procedure that uses your blood platelets, a type of cell that helps with healing throughout the body, to reverse hair loss and grow new hair potentially. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) can be administered via small injections throughout the scalp. PRP therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that can harness and amplify the natural growth factors your body uses to heal tissue to help trigger new hair growth. This is because PRP contains growth factors that support the body’s production of elastin and collagen in the soft tissues.

We are passionate about helping you make whatever cosmetic enhancements help you feel your best every day.

Results You Can Run Your Fingers Through
PRP has long been used to help athletes recover from injuries and promote healing after surgery. It has also been shown to be beneficial for helping the skin repair itself and even to regrow hair. PRP is thought to restore hair by increasing the blood supply to the hair follicle and adding growth factors to the area, which makes the hair thicker. Hair growth occurs over time, making the results appear gradually and naturally. Patients tend to be highly satisfied with the outcomes of their PRP hair restoration treatments.
Your Hair. Just Like Before.
The first step to receiving PRP therapy to restore healthy hair on the scalp is to schedule a consultation at Face Forward in Houston, Texas. Bring any questions you have about PRP for hair growth. Your aesthetic medical provider will ask about your medical history and aesthetic objectives to ensure that PRP is a safe and effective option for you.
The Science of Healthy Hair
Prior to your PRP Hair Restoration Houston aesthetic specialists will draw a blood sample and run it through a centrifuge to separate out the red blood cells and collect a high concentration of plasma only, which is rich in platelets. (Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP). The PRP is then placed into a syringe and carefully injected into areas of hair loss. You will typically have three treatments spaced out over the course of four to six weeks. It may take a number of weeks for results to become apparent. Hair growth should continue to increase and improve following each treatment.
Holistic Hair Restoration
Your scalp may be slightly sore for a day or two, but this will diminish quickly. There is no real recovery time needed following each session. Because PRP is made from your own tissue, the risk of an adverse reaction is almost none; you can bathe and wash your hair normally on the same day. Initial treatment consists of three sessions spaced four to six weeks apart. Depending on the results, Houston PRP Hair Restoration patients may wish to purchase more individual sessions soon or move to a maintenance plan.
It is recommended that you schedule a maintenance appointment every six to nine months to continue to see optimal hair growth. At Face Forward, we can help you determine the best regimen for your needs and keep you feeling confident every day.
Injections have minor discomfort, and a local anesthetic, ice, and vibrating distractor may be applied to ensure better comfort during the procedure.
There is a low risk of adverse side effects, including tissue or nerve damage, bleeding, or infection.
Cost depends on the nature and extent of your individual treatments. Schedule your consultation with our Houston PRP Hair Restoration providers to receive an estimate. PRP is generally a more cost-effective option than hair transplant surgery.
When used for hair restoration, PRP is considered a cosmetic treatment and is not covered by insurance.
