Thinning hair can be a frustrating — and sensitive — issue for men and women alike, and finding an effective solution is often a challenge! This is why we’re happy to share that we now offer PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment for thinning hair at Thibiant.
So, what exactly is PRP? PRP is a natural concentration derived directly from a patient’s own blood. It’s a rich source of specialized proteins called growth factors, which stimulate stem cell activity in dormant hair follicles. During this treatment, our team will use a fine needle to inject your own PRP directly into the scalp — leading to neovascularization, or the creation of a new blood supply to hair follicles in the treated area. This enhanced blood supply means more oxygen and nutrients reach affected hair follicles — leading to thicker and healthier hair! You’ll begin to notice visible improvements about six to eight weeks after your first treatment, depending on how quickly your hair normally grows.
We recommend beginning PRP treatments at the first sign of thinning hair, as this treatment is most effective when utilized early on. You should expect to come in for four treatments, each a month apart, and a maintenance treatment once every six months after the initial series. Don’t worry — while we recommend you wait 3-5 days before blowing out or coloring your hair, PRP treatments won’t otherwise impact your normal hair care routine!
