Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration
Conveniently located to serve Dublin, OH
Dr. Sumit Bapna is uniquely qualified to offer platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration in Dublin, OH. Platelet Rich Plasma is a highly concentrated blood plasma that can maximize your hair transplant growth.
What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration?
This injectable treatment contains platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), and other bioactive proteins that are used to promote wound healing, tissue repair, and hair growth. Patients choose PRP injections to both prevent hair loss as well as stimulate new hair growth in dormant hair follicles.
Typically, PRP injections are given every 4 weeks until your ideal results are achieved. If you suffer from severe hair loss, Dr. Bapna may use PRP injections in combination with your Hair Transplant Surgery to facilitate a more successful outcome.

I can’t begin to tell you how happy I am with my new look after having a hair transplant. Although it’s only been a few months, I can see the hair growth and thickness where I had no hair. I haven’t involved myself in swimming or water skiing for years because of the way I looked. I can see light at the end of the tunnel regarding my sports and I couldn’t be happier. The procedure was essentially painless and there was no need to take time off from work. Thank you.
PRP Hair Loss Injections
PRP injections can be used in many ways during hair transplant surgery. Dr. Bapna can use this concentrated platelet-rich plasma to soak each extracted graft as well as spray the formula on donor and recipient areas of your scalp.
Not only does PRP work to stimulate healthy hair growth, but it also aids in wound and scar healing at your surgical site. Patients benefit from a maintenance treatment of PRP injections to accelerate recovery and results. These treatments are usually repeated 3 to 5 times every month, beginning the month after your hair transplant.
Candidates for PRP Hair Restoration
Anyone dealing with a recent case of hair loss is an ideal candidate for platelet rich plasma hair restoration, mainly because it is easier to reactivate hair follicles that have recently gone dormant. Those showing the first signs of thinning hair can get this hair restoration procedure, too.
Patients with lupus or thyroid disease may suffer from more hair loss and may not be good candidates for platelet rich plasma hair restoration. The same applies to patients on blood thinners.
Your Platelet Rich Plasma Hair Restoration Consultation
To find out if you’d make a good candidate for the PRP hair treatment. you must first schedule a consultation with Dr. Sumit Bapna. During your consultation, Dr. Bapna will closely assess your hair to help develop a treatment plan that’s catered to your individual needs.
If you are currently experiencing the early stages of hair loss such as thinning hair and bald patches, then PRP hair restoration may be a good fit for you. Ideal patients should be in good physical health and have realistic expectations.
During the procedure, blood gets drawn from the patient. The tube of blood is placed in the centrifuge to separate the plasma and platelets from the other elements of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the target areas on the scalp. Since this process uses an extremely thin microneedle, patients say they feel minimal to no pain at all.
Because the platelet rich plasma is formulated from the patient’s blood, the risk of rejection or complication is greatly reduced. The entire treatment may last for an hour, and patients may need several sessions for optimal results.
Platelet rich plasma hair restoration is an outpatient procedure, and no downtime or recovery time is required. Ice packs or cool air may be used to reduce pain or discomfort, if any is present. Refrain from typical hair maintenance activities such as processing, coloring, or blow-drying.
It may take several weeks to notice the effects of your PRP treatment. The results may be more noticeable after six months. To optimize results, consistent treatments will be necessary.
How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost?
PRP hair restoration treatments are patient-tailored, so the price can vary. The size of the treatment area and number of injections needed to achieve your desired outcome will affect the overall cost. After determining the best hair restoration treatment approach for you, Dr. Bapna will be sure that you are provided with complete pricing details.
