PRP for Hair Loss

Balding or thinning hair can make you self-conscious and cause you to look older than you feel.

Dr. Suzanne Yee is one of the few surgeons performing PRP for hair loss—a short, simple process that can increase hair growth and thickness.

Here's why so many men and women turn to our Little Rock, AR, practice for this innovative procedure...

Top Reasons to Choose PRP Treatment

Simple Treatment

Each PRP treatment can be completed in about 90 minutes. During this time, Dr. Yee's highly trained team will draw blood, separate the platelet-rich plasma from other fluids found in the blood, and reinject it into areas of the scalp that lack hair density. For the best results, we recommend that you undergo at least four sessions with two maintenance treatments scheduled each year thereafter.

Affordable Cost

In most cases, PRP treatment is much more affordable than traditional methods of hair restoration. While surgical hair transplant costs can range from $4,000 to $15,000, the PRP system has gained popularity because of its low costs, which make it a feasible option for virtually all patients.

Low Risk of Side Effects

Many men and women also choose PRP because of its effectiveness and its low level of risk associated with treatment. Because the procedure is non-surgical and uses your own blood, there is virtually no recovery time, and very little risk of infection or scarring.

Let's look at how PRP can encourage hair growth...

PRP hair restoration involves three fundamental steps.

Hair Restoration - Platelet-Rich Plasma

Hair loss can be a significant issue for both men and women.  Often times this issue is due to a genetic trait that can leave people feeling confused and helpless. There are options that are available through prescription drugs and other “natural” remedies, but these carry with them the potential for unwanted side effects. Another option may be to utilize surgery to gain the desired results; however, this can often times be very expensive and not treat the medical problems that may be underlying.  Fortunately, there is now a way to treat hair loss without the undue cost or the risk of side effects; this treatment is known as Platelet – Rich Plasma.

HOW PRP WORKS

A platelet is defined as: “a small colorless disk-shaped cell fragment without a nucleus, found in large numbers in blood and involved in clotting.”  These platelets act like signal callers that instruct your tissue to regenerate and multiply.  These signal callers contain healing growth factors that help to heal wounds and speed up recovery time.  Ultimately, PRP allows the body to regrow healthier stronger tissue.

Science has now discovered new benefits for regrowth and thickening of the hair.  Stem cells and growth factors work together reverse the miniaturization of the hairs follicle and shocks dormant hair follicles back into the growing stage.

PRP FOR HAIR LOSS

There are 3 primary steps to the safe and effective injection process of PRP:

  1. Blood is drawn using a specific tube.  That blood is then placed into a centrifuge (this is a machine with a rapidly rotating container that applies centrifugal force to its contents, typically to separate fluids of different densities or liquids from solids).
  2. After 10 minutes of the centrifuge process a syringe is used to collect and draw up all of the concentrated platelets.
  3. Using a small needle the platelets are injected directly into the scalp, in strategic areas that are marked as needing the most improvement.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT PRP

Two of the most commonly asked questions regarding PRP for hair loss are: does it hurt?  Am I a candidate?

Most physicians will utilize anesthetic to limit any discomfort the patient may feel. Ultimately it is important to talk to Dr. Yee to determine what the right option is for you.
