Hair growth is impacted by many factors. Genetics, hormonal imbalances, illnesses and many other influences can affect hair growth or cause hair loss. For those with thinning hair, finding effective treatments to slow down hair loss and improve hair growth is possible. At City Facial Plastics in NYC, we offer options for treating hair loss, including PRP therapy.
Dr. Gary Linkov at City Facial Plastics is an experienced facial plastic surgeon and hair restoration specialist. His understanding of the skin, hair and biological factors that impact hair loss allow him to offer the best options for treatment. Not only does Dr. Linkov provide the most advanced options in hair transplants, but he also can recommend other treatments to slow hair loss, like our PRP treatments.
What are PRP Treatments?
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is used in many medical applications. This substance is obtained from a patient’s own blood. A small sample is filtered through a centrifuge to remove a high concentration of platelets. PRP contains growth factors and other elements that are vital for healing. It is used to help rejuvenate and heal tissue in surgical applications for joints, skin and even hair follicles.
For hair loss, PRP treatments stimulate hair growth and restore health to the hair follicles. Injections of PRP are placed into the scalp. Microneedling can also be used to stimulate healing and activate the growth factors in PRP.
We use PRP treatments for our patients receiving hair transplants to give their newly-transplanted follicles the best chance for survival. PRP treatments can also be used for those with thinning hair to help slow the hair loss process and even improve the thickness of their hair growth.
