As we reach our middle-ages, we focus on things like wrinkles, weight gain and hot flashes. However, there’s one symptom of aging that sneaks up on us – hair loss. Often times, we don’t even think about our hair until we start losing it. As the hair starts falling out, most of us go right to “Dr. Google” to find a miracle shampoo or supplement to combat hair loss. To much of our disappointment, the so called “miracle shampoo” that we spend a fortune on only camouflages our thinning hair for a brief moment before we’re back to square one looking for the next best thing!  

While aging is inevitable, hair loss doesn’t have to be. If you have visibly thinning hair, weakening hair strength, a decrease in hair volume or loss of scalp coverage, you may be a candidate for PRP Therapy for hair restoration.


prp-therapyPRP therapy for hair restoration is suitable for both men and women and is a non-surgical, totally natural alternative medical procedure used to treat hair loss or thinning of hair. PRP, or Platelet Rich Plasma, is obtained by drawing a patient’s own blood, removing the red cells and concentrating the platelets, and then reinjecting it back into the patient’s scalp – after numbing, of course. Platelets can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special Platelets not only prompt the formation of new cellular growth, they also stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.

Although results vary, PRP has been used successfully in medical disciplines for years. Since the enriched plasma has been produced from the patient’s own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP therapy. Also, since part of the PRP consists of a concentrated amount of white blood cells – which are the body’s natural defenders against infection – infections are extremely rare. If you’re interested in PRP therapy to combat your hair loss, schedule your consultation with Dr. Mitchell today to see if PRP is right for you!
