The Power to Regrow YOUR Hair

Have you noticed your hair starting to thin? It's subtle and hardly visible, but it's there just the same. Fortunately, there is a way to bring back your own naturally-growing hair and keep the bald spots at bay.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a safe way to stimulate hair regrowth using the healing power of your own body. Often used for sports-related injuries, PRP can also be used to restart dormant hair follicles and stop baldness in its tracks. This is your opportunity to stop feeling self-conscious and reclaim your power to regrow your hair.

Tri Valley Plastic Surgery

Tri Valley Plastic Surgery serving Walnut Creek, California, exists to serve people in the Bay Area and meet their aesthetic needs. From dramatic surgical procedures to noninvasive treatments, we can help everyone reach their full beauty potential.

What causes hair loss?

There is no single agreed-upon cause of hair loss. Genetics, disease, diet, stress, and lifestyle can all play a role. It is estimated that 50 million men in the USA are afflicted with male-pattern baldness. However, many people don't realize that female-pattern hair loss affects about 30 million American women.

In many cases, PRP can help combat thinning or baldness, especially where aging and genetics are primary factors. It's important to keep in mind that hair restoration with PRP is a treatment, not a cure. Ongoing hair care and periodic treatments are usually required to stave off the effects of balding in the long term.

What is Hair Restoration?

As we age, it's natural for hair production to decrease. As many as 50 percent of men and 25 percent of women see some hair loss by the time they're 50 years old.

At Tri Valley serving Walnut Creek hair restoration treatments using PRP seek to undo this damage by using the platelets found in your blood to “reboot” the dormant follicles and regrow hair. Blood is separated into four parts: red blood cells, white blood cells, platelet-rich plasma, and platelet-poor plasma. The platelets and growth factors in the plasma help our body heal but can also be used to restart hair growth in follicles that the aging process has shut down.

Am I a Good Candidate for a Hair Restoration?

Hair restoration treatments with PRP work best for patients with mild to moderate hair loss.

People who have conditions related to their heart, circulatory system, or blood should not undergo PRP treatments. This can include patients with bleeding disorders, high blood pressure, and those who use blood-thinning medications. Also, people with chronic liver diseases should not do PRP, and pregnant women should also delay the procedure.

Your Hair Restoration Consultation

When you meet with one of our skilled providers to discuss your interest in hair restoration with PRP, we'll carefully assess your current condition, go over your medical history, and discuss the goals you have for your treatment. We'll take the time to answer all your questions and address any concerns you may have. Our goal is for you to feel educated, empowered, and comfortable throughout our journey together.

How does Hair Restoration with PRP work?

The process begins by drawing a small amount of your blood. This serum will be processed in a centrifuge to separate into its constituent parts. The PRP is then collected and prepared for injection. This portion of your treatment usually takes about 45 minutes, but you will be relaxed and comfortable.

Your treatment specialist uses a syringe containing your PRP to inject the fluid into your scalp. Multiple injections around the treatment area are made to yield the most balanced results possible. Often, several treatment sessions are required, typically about one month apart, to accommodate for and work with your hair's natural growth cycle.


Your Hair Restoration Recovery

Recovery after PRP treatments is simple and painless for most patients. Some people may experience mild side effects like:

  • Itching
  • Swelling
  • Tenderness
  • Headache

Your provider will give you detailed aftercare instructions, but they typically include advice such as:

  • Avoid stress on the treated area
  • Protect your skin from the sun
  • Refrain from intense physical activity or exercise for at least two days
  • Follow all recommended hair care practices

Hair Restoration Results

Patients can expect to see results within six months of their final treatment with PRP. This typically looks like a noticeable improvement in hair thickness and health.

Because each person's body is different, results will be different too. Multiple treatments are usually recommended, and an ongoing commitment to hair care is critical to making your results last.
