For the restoration or prevention of hair loss and thinning, consider Autologous Conditioned Plasma (ACP), commonly known as Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical, time-efficient, and discreet hair treatment that is receiving a lot of praise for its preliminary clinical results. Book now for a complimentary consultation to learn more!
Our procedure for Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment in San Francisco begins by centrifuging (separating) blood to remove the red blood cells. What’s left, is a high concentrate of hundreds of naturally-occurring assorted proteins including growth factors, somatic cells, and other cytokines.
These growth factors are essential for overall cell health and function, including signaling cells to regenerate and repair tissues. The PRP hair treatment has the potential to repair and regenerate damaged cells to restore and maintain hair growth for stronger, thicker, and healthier hair.
The PRP hair treatment we use here in San Francisco has long been used in the medical fields of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery, dentistry, and sports medicine. Though it is not an FDA-approved therapy for hair loss yet, there are extensive studies pending that leverage Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) as a non-surgical option for hair restoration.
Minimal side effects include tenderness and a “tight” feeling. These symptoms usually resolve within 24-48 hours.
At Pacific Plastic Surgery Group we that see most patients are able to return to normal day activities immediately post PRP treatment. Patients should avoid exercise the first 24 hours, limit sun exposure for 48 hours, and hair color the first 72 hours post-PRP treatment. Avoid anti-inflammatory medications (Advil, Motrin, Iburprofen, etc.) for 3-7 days post PRP hair treatment in San Francisco.
Each PRP hair treatment begins with a complimentary consultation with one of our trained medical providers. After creating a customized treatment and you are deemed a good candidate the procedure will be scheduled. Some blood tests may be recommended prior to treatment to ensure good candidacy.Schedule a Consultation
For optimal results, the recommended protocol is 4 initial treatments spaced 1 month apart with a maintenance PRP hair treatment every 4 months (this is an on-going procedure, we think of it as the “Botox” for hair).
