Hair Restoration At The West Institute
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a natural treatment used to help restore hair growth and increase hair thickness, amount, and length.
PRP is a three-step medical treatment in which blood is drawn, separated, and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth. When injected, platelet rich plasma and its growth factors can increase blood supply to hair follicles and encourage cellular activity, which results in increased thickness in the hair shaft and stimulation of hair growth.

Is Hair Restoration Right For Me?
If you’re concerned about hair loss and have contemplated or tried medications like Rogaine or Propecia, or hair transplant surgery, then consider PRP therapy. It is a safe and effective way to reduce hair loss and stimulate new hair growth. Dr. West will meet with you to see if PRP is the right treatment to help you restore hair loss.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Patients will first note decreased hair shedding, followed by early regrowth, resulting in increased hair thickness and length. PRP treatment is recommended as an initial series of three-to-four sessions spaced at four-to-six-week intervals, followed by less frequent maintenance treatments.
