PRP for Hair Loss

Men and women suffering from hair loss also typically suffer lower self-esteem and confidence due to the condition. If you’re struggling with hair loss, PRP hair restoration may be the answer for you. We are happy to offer hair restoration at select Genesis Lifestyle Medicine locations.

What is PRP hair restoration?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration is a hair loss treatment that utilizes your body’s own plasma to promote new hair growth. Within our blood, there is plasma. Within the plasma are platelets. And within those platelets are growth factors, which grow cells and repair tissue. Over a series of treatments administered via PRP hair injections, these growth factors can help men and women who have certain hair conditions — especially androgenetic alopecia — to restore hair growth.

How does PRP hair restoration work?

Platelets are like our body’s very own ambulance. When we become cut or wounded, our platelets rush to the rescue by preventing the bleeding. This helps the injury heal as quickly as possible. This same “rescue team” can be applied to dormant hair follicles to stimulate brand new hair growth. They work by encouraging inactive hair follicles to begin an active growth phase.

During a standard PRP hair restoration session, blood is taken from a vein and placed inside a device that separates the red blood cells from the plasma. The plasma, rich with platelets and growth factors, is then added into a syringe, which is then administered into the scalp — where it goes to work re-growing hair. 

PRP hair restoration treatment details

When you arrive for your PRP hair restoration treatment, your scalp will be cleansed, and you will be given a topical anesthetic to help minimize any discomfort. First, a small amount of blood will be taken from one of your veins.

That blood will be put into a device that spins until the red blood cells are separated from the plasma. Once separated, the plasma is then placed inside a syringe so that it can be directly injected into targeted areas of the scalp.

These PRP hair injections are reported to be very tolerable with the help of the topical anesthetic. The treatment length varies from patient to patient, but typically takes about an hour and a half.


PRP hair injections allow you to return to your regular daily activities directly after your appointment. However, some patients do experience soreness, swelling, itching, or pinpoint bleeding at the injection sites. These side effects will subside quickly.

What to expect

There are a couple things that those interested in PRP hair restoration should be aware of:

Hair regrowth from PRP hair injections is a process. It does not provide immediate results. Many patients require multiple sessions to get and/or maintain the results they want. Those undergoing PRP hair injections should be fully aware of everything involved in the procedure, and should also be given an estimate of how long it may take to see a result.

The type of hair loss you have may not respond to PRP hair injections. Because hair loss is caused by different things (stress, genetics, age, certain medications, illness, etc.), not every treatment gets the same results because each treatment will target a different cause.

Good candidates for PRP hair restoration

If you’re considering PRP hair restoration in Nashville, you may be a perfect candidate. The best candidates for this treatment:

  • Are healthy
  • Are experiencing hair loss, particularly hair loss caused by androgenetic alopecia
  • Understand that getting results from PRP hair injections is a gradual process
