Hair loss and hair thinning are common problems for both men and women. PRP (platelet rich plasma) is an advanced, non-surgical technique to promote hair regeneration. The procedure may be used as a standalone injectable treatment or in combination with other hair restoration anti-aging techniques such as laser based hair regeneration.   Rejuvenate Medical Spa is one of the leading facilities providing cutting edge aesthetic and anti-aging procedures, including PRP therapy for hair restoration. Led by board certified physician Dr. Bijan Farah, the med spa provides state of the art technology and techniques for hair restoration and various other non-surgical procedures. The med spa receives patients from Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and surrounding areas.  

Rejuvenating Defunct Hair Follicles

Hair follicles that have stopped producing new hair are generally believed to be completely dead. However, recent research reveals that in many cases, the unproductive follicles are not dead, but merely lying in a dormant, injured, compromised or other defunct state. These follicles may still be capable of spurring hair growth for five to eight years after they turned dormant. The natural platelet rich plasma or PRP in the human body contains powerful growth factors that can activate adult stem cells within these unproductive or defunct hair follicles. PRP can also promote localized cell growth and the formation of new blood vessels to feed the regenerated hair follicles. Rejuvenate medical spa is one of the leaders in providing this highly promising PRP treatment to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, Woodland Hills, Tarzana, CA, and nearby areas.  

Candidates for PRP

Any man or woman who is bothered by the loss or thinning of hair, but does not wish to choose surgical hair transplant procedures, may be a good candidate for PRP injection therapy. This innovative solution is ideal for people suffering from a variety of hair loss related medical concerns, such as male pattern hair loss, hypotrichosis, female pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, alopecia totalis, and other hair loss conditions.  

PRP Procedure

PRP injection therapy can be used on the entire scalp or a selective area. The PRP expert will draw a small sample of the patient’s blood and process it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP and activate its growth factors. Once the PRP has been isolated, the med spa expert will apply a local anesthetic to the target area of the scalp. The PRP will be injected directly into the target area, focusing on areas that are more severely affected by hair loss. A very fine gauge needle is used in a matrix pattern across the scalp to optimize the regenerative power of the PRP.  

Recovery and Results

Recovery is usually easy and any discomfort can be addressed with over the counter pain medications. PRP treatment may lead to excellent new hair growth and improvement in hair density and thickness in many of the patients. Results can be visible in about two months, but the full effects of PRP treatment will be established in about four to eight months.
