Hair Restoration with PRP Q & A

What is hair restoration with PRP?

Hair restoration with PRP, also known as platelet-rich plasma, is a treatment that uses platelets from your blood to regenerate cells and stimulate hair follicles to regrow hair. 

Dr. Karlsberg uses PRP to treat androgenetic alopecia (male and female pattern hair loss) in men and women of all ages.

What causes hair loss?

Hair loss can result from numerous causes. Examples include:

  • Genetics
  • Older age
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Stress
  • Alopecia areata
  • Some cancer treatments
  • Poor hair care practices
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Scalp infections
  • Certain medications
  • Psoriasis
  • Childbirth
  • Thyroid disease

 

Regardless of what’s causing thinning hair, Dr. Karlsberg can reduce your risk of further hair loss and even reverse the condition to help you look and feel years younger. 

What are the benefits of hair restoration with PRP?

Hair restoration with PRP offers you numerous benefits. It can give you fuller, thicker hair to reduce signs of aging and help you gain confidence. PRP is a simple, fast procedure that can produce dramatic anti-aging results without any incisions, medications, surgery, or downtime.

Is hair restoration with PRP right for me?

To find out if you’re a good candidate for hair restoration with PRP, Dr. Karlsberg and his team review your medical history, examine your hair and scalp, and discuss your desired results. 

They let you know what to expect during the procedure to make sure it’s right for you. PRP is especially useful for patients with alopecia. 

What should I expect during the procedure?

When you arrive at Ventura Institute for Dermatologic Arts for hair restoration with PRP, Dr. Karlsberg takes a sample of blood from your arm and spins it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP. 

He can numb your scalp before injecting PRP into targeted areas underneath the skin. Dr. Karlsberg can also apply PRP topically to your scalp with a microneedling procedure. 

Additional hair restoration solutions include hair transplantation, medications, dietary supplements, and hormone replacement therapy.
