- $450 for a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair-restoration treatment (a $900 value)<p>
The PRP hair-restoration treatment works to regenerate hair growth via injections of human growth factors in the scalp. The PRP injections can help increase circulation to hair follicles, stimulate follicle growth, and thicken the hair shaft. <p>
First, the technician draws a small amount of blood from the patient to create the PRP, and then cleans the scalp and numbs it with a local anesthetic. The technician then injects the PRP with a syringe, and applies it topically with a dermaroller, which allows it to deeply penetrate the scalp. After the treatment, patients might experience inflammation or tenderness for several days.<p>
