At PotozkinMD Skin Care and Laser Center, our board-certified dermatologists are experts in treating hair loss with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP).

Who benefits from Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) as a hair loss treatment?

Millions of people are experiencing hair loss– and there are many different reasons that you may be experiencing it. No matter what the cause is, it’s frustrating and can make you feel helpless.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment for hair loss is a three-step procedure performed in our facility that can trigger natural hair growth and increase the thickness of the hair by boosting blood supply and growth factory delivery to the hair follicles. 

Platelets in your blood are responsible for regenerating cell growth. They secrete growth factors that can stimulate tissue regrowth and heal wounds. These growth factors work as your body’s messengers to signal hair follicles and skin cells to function.

PRP treatments work by injecting high levels of platelets into the scalp. When these platelets reach the hair follicle, they encourage hair growth. 

PRP is not a treatment approach for everyone experiencing hair loss. At your consultation, our team will assess the following before determining if you are a candidate for PRP:

  • Your scalp and extent of your hair loss
  • The underlying reason you are experiencing the condition
  • A general examination, taking your other health conditions into consideration

What are some expectations for PRP treatment for hair loss?

How long it takes to complete the procedure depends on the size of the treatment area. Typically, you should expect it to take 45-60 minutes. The three steps of the procedure are as followed:

  • Step 1 - We draw blood from your arm to be used for the procedure
  • Step 2 - Your blood is placed in a centrifuge, and a machine will spin blood to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) from the platelet-poor plasma and red blood cells
  • Step 3 - The PRP is injected into areas of your scalp we are targeting for new hair growth

Androgenetic Alopecia (also known as male or female pattern hair loss) is the most common hair loss type we see and treat. The cause is due to a combination of hormonal and genetic factors. Platelet-rich plasma treatments have a proven track record of helping patients with this type of alopecia reduce their hair loss. It also improves the density of the hair regrowth and increases hair thickness.

PRP works best for people who are showing early signs of hair loss. The sooner treatments begin, the better, as the hair follicles likely haven’t been dormant for a long period of time.

It’s important to note that PRP treatments are not a cure– they are treatments that could help improve your condition. Multiple treatments are needed to optimize results, and there will be maintenance treatments needed going forward. 

We know that dealing with hair loss is a sensitive issue and distressing for some, which is why it’s so important to find a hair loss expert that you trust. We are a board-certified dermatologist-led practice and take your skin and hair health very seriously. If you’ve experienced hair loss and would like our take on treatment approaches, we invite you to book a consultation with our team.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
