PRP Hair Restoration in Oklahoma City
Restore Your Natural Hairline
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has proven to be very beneficial for both men and women who are suffering from hair loss. PRP is a non-surgical option for patients who want to stimulate hair growth for aesthetic purposes, or if they have a condition that causes hair loss.
Some in the medical community agree that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft.
PRP hair restoration therapy is a 3 step process. First, a patient’s blood is drawn in the office, similar to a routine blood test. Human blood contains stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential growth factors that assist in the regeneration of tissue and healing.
The blood is then spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated. It is then removed from the rest of the blood. The concentrated PRP is injected into the scalp in areas that need increased hair growth. There is no sedation involved with this procedure, so the patient is then free to drive home without assistance.

Why Try PRP hair restoration in Oklahoma City?

Complements Other Approaches
If you've already had a hair transplant or other procedure to reduce hair loss, PRP injections can help improve your existing results.
Unlike more invasive hair restoration methods, there is no downtime after PRP therapy, so you won't need to take off from work or coordinate a driver.

The PRP Hair Restoration Process
What to Expect
Before your PRP injections in Oklahoma City, you'll meet with one of our providers for an initial consultation. We will discuss your hair loss concerns, goals, and sensitivities to find the best approach for you. Based on this consultation, we will create a personalized treatment plan for your needs.
The first step in the PRP hair restoration process is to draw your blood, place it in a centrifuge, and isolate the PRP growth factors from the red and white blood cells.
Your provider will then inject small amounts of this PRP into the scalp to help stimulate hair growth in areas of thinning or total loss.
