Hair loss is a common cosmetic concern for both men and women and can often have a negative impact on body image and self-esteem. If you’re struggling to find a solution for this problem, you might consider PRP hair restoration, an innovative treatment option for hair loss that can help you to look and feel more like yourself again.*
Dr. James Koehler is an experienced cosmetic surgeon who is committed to taking a personalized, patient-centered approach. Eastern Shore Cosmetic Surgery offers PRP hair restoration to help men and women in the Mobile-Pensacola metro area effectively address hair loss.*
Are You a Candidate?
Virtually any man or woman who is experiencing hair loss could be a good candidate for PRP hair restoration, although those who are just noticing the beginnings of hair loss tend to see optimal results. PRP hair restoration can also be an appropriate solution to help trigger hair regrowth for people with alopecia and other similar conditions that might affect hair growth.*
About PRP Hair Restoration
PRP, which stands for “platelet-rich plasma,” is naturally found in everyone’s blood and contains a high concentration of growth factors. These growth factors can help to stimulate proper cell function and renewal, which, in the case of PRP hair restoration, can stimulate hair follicles in order to produce new hair growth.*
PRP Hair Restoration Costs
Eastern Shore Cosmetic Surgery offers three PRP hair restoration treatments for $2,500 or a single treatment for $1,000. Dr. Koehler and his staff would be happy to discuss cosmetic procedure pricing to help you better understand the costs associated with PRP hair restoration.
What to Expect
PRP hair restoration is a relatively simple two-step process. First, a regular blood draw is performed. The amount of blood that will be needed can depend on the size of the area being treated, and this is something that you can discuss with Dr. Koehler during your consultation.
A centrifuge machine is then used to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood. Once this is complete, the PRP is carefully injected into the area of your scalp where you’d like to target hair regrowth.
In most cases, the entire PRP hair restoration process takes about 30 minutes or less, and most people do not require numbing prior to injections and report minimal to no discomfort during the procedure.*
Risks and Complications
PRP hair restoration comes along with few risks, if any.* You might notice some minor discomfort or bruising directly after your procedure, but these side effects are generally mild and should resolve on their own over the next few days.*
Your New Look
For most people, you’ll see the best results after a series of 3 to 4 treatments spaced about a month apart. Within the first 2 to 3 months after treatment, you should start to notice a decrease in the amount of hair that comes out in your brush or while in the shower. Next, you should see signs of early hair regrowth, followed by the thickening and lengthening of your hair over time. Regular follow-up treatments every 6 months or so can help to maintain your results.*
