Platelet Rich Plasma

How long does it take to recover from Platelet Rich Plasma?

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy first involves having blood removed from an arm vein. The blood is spun down in a centrifuge and the Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into areas of the scalp in order to treat hair loss.  While many injections are given, there is no recovery time required after the injections are given. Dr. Kindred will explain the procedure to you and alleviate any concerns you may have before the procedure, and her staff will assist to assist to ensure you have a pleasant experience.

How much does Platelet Rich Plasma therapy cost?

PRP therapy begins with the active phase consisting of three separate treatments over 12 to 18 weeks. Maintenance treatments are recommended every four to six months.  The cost of the treatment is $1500 to $3500 for the first three treatments.  Please feel free to contact Kindred skin and hair office or leave us a message and we will provide you with all the necessary details.

What is Platelet Rich Plasma therapy used for?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has traditionally been used for several different things, such as muscle, tendon, and ligament injuries. Research shows that PRP is effective in improving natural hair growth by flooding the follicles with natural growth factors. Dr. Kindred has vast experience with PRP and relies on it daily for hair loss patients.

What are the benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

The benefits of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) are still being studied.  Recent research, however, indicates that men and women who receive this treatment have 30 to 40 percent more hair growth in areas where PRP therapy is given.  Hair density increases and hair will be thicker after these types of treatments but it takes about three months to see improvements. For more information book a consultation today with Dr. Kindred's office.
