PRP Hair Therapy at the Center for Hair Restoration in Pennsylvania

Your body has amazing natural abilities – including the capacity to heal itself. PRP, or platelet rich plasma, has been used for decades in the medical field.

Only recently, the healing properties of this blood product have come into use in hair restoration. Dr. Heil is one of the doctors that has a lot of experience on the subject of hair restoration and will give you arguably the best PRP Pittsburgh has to offer.

How Does PRP Work?

If you are genetically programmed to lose your hair, the follicles in certain zones will slowly just stop producing hairs, and you will experience the onset of balding. PRP is a blood product with special properties. Your blood is made up two main components – red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets.

PRP contains growth factors and cytokines that have stimulate hair follicle function and health.

These blood components send a message to your cells, triggering them to function correctly, and produce thicker, healthier hairs.

If your hair follicles are starting to produce finer, thinner hair, you are the perfect candidate for our PRP hair restoration in Pennsylvania. It is also an excellent additional procedure following hair transplants, as it provides the growth factors to cause more of the transplanted follicles to once again get to work producing healthy, thick strands of hair.
