What is PRP / Stem Cell Therapy for
Hair Loss?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy has been used in sports medicine for decades. Today, this versatile treatment is used for skin and hair rejuvenation.

Blood is made up of many components, including red cells, white cells, platelets, and plasma. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors, which aid in the healing of wounds. Whenever the body sustains an injury, these growth factors jumpstart the healing process and encourage new cell turnover. PRP therapy harnesses the regenerative properties of blood platelets to create an ideal environment for healthy hair growth.

During treatment, blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelets. This platelet-rich plasma is then extracted. Next, the scalp is aestheticized, and the plasma is injected into specific areas. The growth factors quickly get to work by encouraging skin cell turnover, prolonging the growth phase of hair and stimulating dormant hair follicles.

Dr. Christopher Varona offers the most advanced and practical techniques for patients seeking PRP therapy for hair loss. He often performs this procedure with ACell, which is a multi-layer organic tissue matrix. This matrix contains additional growth factors and proteins that play a crucial role in reconstructing the skin and hair. When used in conjunction with PRP therapy, ACell can enhance the overall results and regrow hair faster. 

PRP for Hair Loss:  

Is It Right for You?

PRP therapy is minimally invasive, making it an excellent option for most people seeking hair loss treatment.

Ideal candidates include men and women who: 
  • Are seeking a treatment that provides gradual results
  • Are in the earlier stages of hair loss
  • Want to prevent future thinning
  • Have areas of weak hair growth with still-functioning follicles

PRP and stem cell therapy can also be combined with FUT or FUE hair restoration surgery to boost overall results. Depending on your ultimate goals and the extent of your hair loss, you may want to also begin a medication regimen, like Minoxidil (Rogaine®) or Finasteride (Propecia).

Frequently ASked Questions

PRP / Stem Cell Therapy

Patients who undergo PRP therapy can expect to see results within six months. However, when the procedure is performed in conjunction with ACell, results can be seen within two to four months. ACell boosts results by activating stem cells in the treated area.

PRP for hair loss produces long-lasting results. Most patients choose to have additional treatments every 12 months after their initial injections to maintain optimal levels of hair growth. 

PRP therapy is a relatively quick outpatient procedure. It usually takes less than an hour to complete.

Downtime is minimal with this procedure. Most patients immediately resume their regular activities after treatment. It’s typical for the treated area to feel somewhat tender afterward, but these temporary symptoms quickly resolve on their own. Patients should avoid exposing the treated areas to sunlight without sunblock or adequate sun protection.

Blending Artistry with Surgical Excellence

He is inspired by the way these treatments can completely change someone’s outlook, and he has spent the last decade perfecting techniques that produce natural-looking, long-lasting results. Dr. Varona approaches hair restoration from an artistic perspective; the graft sites are meticulously placed to match the patient’s natural hair.

Dr. Varona blends this artistic approach with superior surgical techniques to restore thick, healthy hair. He is one of the few surgeons who perform FUE extractions himself, and he uses specialized tools to manually control the depth, angle, and distribution of hair grafts for natural-looking density. This dedication to detail and artistry has made Dr. Varona one of the leading hair transplant surgeons in the field.
