Hair loss affects over 80 million men and women in the U.S.
At Montville MedSpa, we offer cutting-edge PRP hair restoration to revitalize your scalp and stimulate dormant follicles. With simple injections of your own plasma, our expert aestheticians can help you regain thicker, fuller hair.
What Causes Hair Loss?
Hair loss occurs for many reasons, like genetics, stress, hormonal changes, or malnutrition. Over time, follicles miniaturize and hair growth cycles shorten. Scalp tissue becomes impaired, suffocating follicles. Gradually, strands thin out and fall away.
While over-the-counter options like minoxidil help prolong the growth phase, they don’t treat root causes. For lasting restoration, innovative solutions like PRP are needed.
How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
First, a small blood sample is drawn, just like a routine lab test. This blood gets spun in a centrifuge, concentrating the platelets and growth factors that accelerate tissue repair.
Next, this platelet-rich plasma gets injected into your scalp at strategic points. When activated, the platelets release biological proteins that:
- Stimulate inactive follicles
- Prolong the growth phase
- Increase hair density and thickness
- Repair scalp tissue and blood vessels
- Reduce hair loss factors like inflammation and fibrosis
Who Is a Good Candidate for PRP?
If you have experienced substantial hair thinning or loss, PRP injections can help. PRP works for various conditions like:
- Androgenetic alopecia
- Telogen effluvium
- Female/male pattern baldness
- Alopecia areata
- Chemotherapy-related hair loss
- Postpartum hair thinning
Both men and women can benefit. PRP is safe for all skin types. The best candidates have mild to moderate hair loss. Those with advanced thinning may need extra treatments for optimal results.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration?
Unlike topical options, PRP triggers natural revitalization using your own plasma. No chemicals or medications required.
Simple and Safe
Injections are minimally invasive with no downtime. Side effects are mild like temporary redness or swelling.
Rather than masking hair loss, PRP treats root causes for lasting regrowth. Effects continue improving over time.
PRP repairs scalp tissue, tackles inflammation, and improves blood flow. This creates an optimal environment for hair to thrive.
What Can I Expect During My PRP Session?
From start to finish, your treatment takes about 90 minutes. Here’s what to expect:
- Blood draw of around 20-50mL
- Centrifuging blood to isolate PRP
- Topical numbing cream applied if desired
- PRP injections across treatment areas
- Light scalp massage to activate PRP
- Instructions for at-home care
Some minor soreness may occur at injection sites. Most patients resume normal activity right away. Maintenance treatments every three months help sustain results.

Frequently Asked Questions About PRP Hair Restoration
How does PRP therapy promote hair growth?
PRP therapy promotes hair growth by injecting concentrated platelets, which release growth factors, into the scalp. These growth factors stimulate hair follicles, promoting new hair growth and thickening existing hair strands.
What is the difference between PRP therapy and hair transplantation?
PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure that utilizes the patient’s blood to promote hair growth, while hair transplantation is a surgical procedure where hair follicles are moved from one part of the body to the balding area.
Can PRP therapy cure diseases causing hair loss like alopecia areata?
While PRP therapy can promote hair growth and reduce hair loss, it’s not a cure for diseases like alopecia areata. However, it can be an effective treatment option to manage symptoms and promote hair growth.
How long does it take to see results from PRP therapy?
Patients often start seeing results within three to six months post-treatment, with continued improvement over time.
Is the hair growth from PRP therapy permanent?
The hair growth from PRP therapy can last several months to years, but maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain the results.

Can PRP therapy address scarring hair loss?
