We welcome men and women in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and surrounding South Florida neighborhoods.
What Is PRP Treatment for Hair Loss?
PRP therapy is a non-surgical procedure in which platelet-rich plasma (PRP), concentrated from the patient’s blood, is injected into the patient’s scalp to help stimulate and reawaken dormant hair follicles and promote healthy hair regrowth.
At Bawa Medical, we take PRP therapy a step further. Once the PRP is created from your blood, we combine it with calcium chloride to form PRFM. PRFM is a gel-like substance, featuring a scaffold which remains within the area of the scalp being treated for a longer period of time for more significant results.
How Much Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Cost in Boca Raton, FL?
The cost of PRP therapy depends on many factors including the size of the treatment area and the number of PRFM injections you need. At Bawa Medical, we will work with you to create a tailored treatment plan and review the cost of your treatment during your initial appointment. We accept many form of payment, including CareCredit® financing.
What Is the Difference Between PRP and PRFM?
Where PRP is purely platelet-rich plasma injected back into the body, PRFM (platelet-rich fibrin matrix) mixes the PRP with a precise amount of calcium chloride. This converts fibrinogen in the plasma to fibrin, and the fibrin matrix functions as a three-dimensional scaffold that helps to maintain and protect the platelets at the site of their injection. By protecting the platelets, this scaffold allows the release of the growth factors to be sustained over longer periods of time.
What Are the Benefits of PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Besides the obvious benefit of a richer, fuller head of hair, one of the main benefits of PRP therapy for hair loss is that it’s a non-surgical procedure. You can enjoy thicker and healthier hair growth without the cost and downtime of surgery. After your PRP therapy procedure, you can immediately return to your normal activities.
PRP therapy for hair loss also works very well with complementary procedures and treatments like medications and hair transplantation.
How Is PRP Therapy Performed for Hair Loss?
When using PRP therapy to treat hair loss, the process is undertaken in three steps.
First, your provider will draw blood from your arm and place it into a centrifuge, where it will be spun rapidly in order to separate fluids of different densities in your blood into three distinct layers. The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) layer will be used in the procedure and the red blood cells and platelet-poor plasma will be discarded.
Finally, the PRP will be drawn into a syringe and injected strategically into the areas of the scalp targeted for treatment. In most cases, PRP therapy will require at least three treatments around four to six weeks apart, while maintenance treatments will be required around every four to six months.
