PRP hair treatments can help you maintain a thicker, healthier head of hair, and ward off hair loss. The procedure uses your body’s natural healing abilities to stimulate enhanced hair growth for stronger, thicker hair. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, boosts your naturally occurring growth factors to trigger healing in the skin and scalp.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, a natural product created from a small sample of your blood, drawn at the beginning of the procedure. The blood sample is placed in a centrifuge that separates the blood into multiple layers, one of those being the PRP. The PRP has an abundance of growth factors that are involved in wound healing and natural tissue growth. When injected into the scalp, it sends signals to your body to regenerate the area – including your hair follicles.

The benefits of PRP as a treatment for hair loss

The benefits of using PRP to promote healthier, thicker hair include:

  • PRP is harvested from your own body, so there is no chance of an adverse reaction
  • PRP promotes natural healing, helping to strengthen blood flow and cell growth in the treatment areas
  • PRP is thought to help existing hair follicles to strengthen and grow
  • Non-invasive treatment
  • No downtime involved

To find out if you are a candidate, schedule a consultation with Dr. Nick Slenkovich at Colorado Plastic Surgery. He and his team will be able to answer any questions that you may have about PRP to trigger the natural regeneration of hair follicles.

What is the PRP hair treatment procedure?

PRP treatments for your scalp and hair start a blood draw, as you would expect in any blood test. The platelet-rich plasma is then separated for use in your treatment. Topical or local anesthesia may be administered to your scalp before the procedure. The PRP is strategically injected into the areas of your scalp with thinning hair. After the procedure, you can return home with a few post-treatment instructions to maximize the effectiveness of the treatment, which could include avoiding sun exposure to the area, avoiding certain medications or other hair treatments.

When will I see results?

Results become visible within about six months, especially if you have had a full course of treatments. Most patients are recommended to have PRP treatments three times, four to six weeks apart, for best results. Afterward, maintenance treatments may be necessary every year or more frequently.

What are growth factors?


A growth factor is a natural substance that when released in its natural form, attaches itself to a receptor on a target cell. The healing properties of PRP are well-established in the medical field, where PRP is often used to speed wound healing. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors in PRP signal the cells to restore and function properly. Every person is different in how they respond to treatment, but if you are experiencing excessive shedding, thinning hair, or are in the early stages of hair loss, you should consider undergoing PRP hair restoration.

PRACTICE UPDATE RE: COVID -19 SITUATION

SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM DR SLENKOVICH:

Your safety is our number one priority. Please know that we join our community in taking advised precautions to limit the spread of the Coronavirus. For the time being we are planning on continuing practice as usual, with some additional precautions.

We have always routinely wiped down our office and patient exam chairs with medical-grade sanitizing wipes. We will expand this to include door knobs, toilet and faucet handles and will have hand-sanitizer available to you at check-in.

No staff will be allowed to come to work with a cough or fever, or if they have had contact with anyone with confirmed Coronavirus. We kindly ask for the same considerations from you. If you have any flu-like symptoms or have recently traveled, please call the office to reschedule your appointment.

We appreciate your flexibility as we will be limiting routine follow-up appointments over the next few weeks and ask patients to not bring friends and family members to their appointments to avoid the amount of patients we have in the office at one time.

We will also be offering virtual consultations throughout this period. We have always performed them for our out of town patients, which we have plenty, but we are now extending this service for local patients as well, in accordance with the recommended social distancing.

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please call and let us know.

Sincerely, Dr. Slenkovich & Staff of Colorado Plastic Surgery Center
