PRP Hair Restoration


Do you wish you could restore a full head of hair without having to undergo a time-consuming and invasive hair transplant procedure? Fortunately, there are many alternative options to hair transplant surgery for treating hair loss.

A non-surgical injection called PRP (platelet-rich plasma) can stimulate the growth of fuller, thicker hair while slowing down genetic hair loss. PRP injections are an essential choice for those who desire a quick, safe, and effective enhancement of their appearance.

Dr. Bonadi offers PRP hair restoration in Reno, Nevada.

What Can PRP Hair Restoration Do?

Stimulate Hair Growth


The high concentration of growth factors found in PRP is capable of stimulating dormant hair follicles. PRP injections can result in new hair growth and increased hair density and thickness.

Prevent Further Hair Loss


PRP hair restoration can be applied proactively to prevent hair loss and the miniaturization of the hair shafts. Injecting the plasma at the level of the hair follicles can improve their growth cycle and prevent thinning hair.

What Is the PRP Hair Restoration Process?

PRP Hair Restoration Consultation


Your scalp will be carefully examined during your consultation to assess the amount of balding or recession in your problem areas. Our highly trained medical aestheticians will discuss your goals and desires for your hair restoration to determine if PRP injections are the ideal solution for your needs. All your questions regarding the PRP harvesting, purification, and injection process will be answered before moving forward with treatment.

PRP Hair Restoration Procedure


PRP hair restoration begins with the platelet harvesting phase. A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient’s body, much like a standard blood test.

The harvested blood is immediately purified using modern centrifuge technology that results in plasma concentrated with platelets, growth factors, and bioactive proteins.

After purification, the platelet-rich plasma is ready for injection into areas throughout the scalp. PRP injections will release growth factors and proteins into these areas to stimulate hair growth and promote healthy hair cycles.

What Are Your Concerns About PRP Hair Restoration?

Recovery


How Long Does PRP Recovery Take?

PRP hair restoration uses a non-surgical injection process that requires zero downtime. Treated areas of the scalp may appear slightly inflamed. Some patients may experience tenderness or irritation at the injection site. However, these side effects should resolve quickly. Patients are expected to be able to return to normal activities immediately after treatment.

Scars


Do PRP Injections Cause Scarring?

PRP injections will not scar the skin. Unlike hair transplants, PRP hair restoration does not require any incisions.

Cost


How Much Do PRP Injections Cost in Reno?

The cost of your PRP injections will vary depending on your unique treatment plan and other factors such as the number of necessary sessions and any treatments performed in combination with your PRP hair restoration. Financing options are also available.

Pain


Are PRP Injections Painful?

PRP injections cause little to no pain. Topical numbing agents can be applied to the injection sites when needed.

Frequently Asked Questions About PRP Hair Restoration


  • What are the side effects associated with PRP hair restoration?

    PRP hair restoration is a safe treatment with very little chance of complication or risk. Some potential side effects of PRP include:

    • Redness
    • Irritation
    • Change in sensation
    • Swelling
  • Am I an ideal candidate for PRP injections?

    PRP hair restoration treatment may be a good option for men and women who feel self-conscious about hair recession, thinning hair, or the formation of small bald spots. Ideal candidates also have realistic expectations for their results and understand the limitations of PRP hair restoration.

    At your consultation, Dr. Bonaldi can determine if you are an ideal PRP candidate. Read our blog for tips on how to prepare for your consultation.

  • How soon will I see my results from PRP hair restoration?

    Progress should appear within two weeks of your initial treatment, although PRP hair restoration may take between four and six months to see fully developed results.

  • How many PRP treatments will I need for my hair loss?

    Some experts suggest three sessions within a year to produce optimal results. Age, genetics, and the amount of hair loss you experience will influence a single treatment’s longevity. Your aestheticians will recommend when you should receive additional hair loss treatments.

  • How long will my PRP hair restoration treatment take?

    The length of a session will be based on the amount of hair loss you wish to treat with PRP injections. Generally, a single session lasts between 30 minutes and an hour.

  • Can PRP injections be used for other treatments besides hair restoration?

    PRP injections are often used in conjunction with non-surgical treatments, especially for facial rejuvenation. PRP can be used with microneedling to minimize the appearance of fine lines, scars, and poor skin tone. The microneedling device will create microscopic injuries on the surface of the skin. PRP is then applied to these same areas to stimulate collagen production and the growth of healthy skin cells.

    Micropeel treatments, medical-grade facials, and oxygen facial treatments may complement microneedling with PRP for healthier and younger-looking skin.
