Hair Loss | Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma commonly know as PRP is the portion of our blood that contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. These growth factors have shown to increase blood flow, stimulate the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. Injection of these growth factors to the scalp has shown an increase in hair count and hair thickness.

Who Is a Good Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Candidate?
PRP therapy is an ideal treatment for men and women who are experiencing thinning hair, reduced hairline, or growing bald patches. However, those with early hair loss tend to respond best to PRP treatments.
PRP Therapy Consultation & Procedure Information
Dr. Fardad Forouzanpour of the Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group will access your individual situation & discuss what results you can expect. We offer the most innovative techniques and the quickest recovery times in the safest environment possible.
What Happens at My Consultation?
During the consultation the client’s medical history is reviewed including history of tobacco use and medications. Using aspirin and/or other blood thinners can potentially increase the risk of bruising and swelling at the injection sites.
How is the Procedure Performed?
During the treatment client’s blood is drawn and is spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and plasma from the Red Blood Cells. PRP replacement therapy uses the patients own blood hormones and growth factors to stimulate the hair follicles. These injections provide nutrients needed to promote hair follicle growth.
What are the Common Side Effects?
Side effects are rare and they may include swelling, bruising, infection or scar tissue formation at the injection sites.

Clients usually see results within two to three months.
For best results, the treatments are typically performed once a month for the first four months and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on individual response.
Initially the clients notice a decrease in hair shedding, followed by early regrowth followed by increased hair length and hair density. It is recommended to continue providing the growth factors and stem cells needed for optimal results every three to six months.
It is crucial to keep in mind that although Platelet Rich Plasma treatments are beneficial to stimulate hair growth, however they are part of a program to treat hair loss. Other treatment options include oral medications such as spironolactone or Finasteride as well as topical products like Rogaine.
