PRP (Platelet-Rich-Plasma) Hair Restoration
Losing your hair is one of the ungraceful results of aging that you may wish did not exist.
Thinning hair can be stopped with Platelet Rich Plasma, also known as PRP, and the addition of A-Cell™. PRP Therapy has been clinically proven to regenerate and enhance the growth of weak hair follicles. This procedure is not able to grow new hair, but it is able to provide thickness and fullness to your existing hair. Essentially, it is providing nutrients to the follicle or bulb that produce your hair strand. It is similar to crops. The better the soil and seeds the better the harvest. It has been in use in the medical field for two decades, and Dr. Cummins may recommend this treatment during your consultation.

Platelets play a crucial role in tissue repair in the body, and they release growth factors to areas that are injured or damaged. First, a blood sample is drawn from the patient. The platelets are then separated from the blood, and mixed with A Cell Matristem, an FDA-approved product. The A Cell Matristem helps with wound healing and acts as a scaffold for the PRP and other regenerative cells, helping to stimulate new hair growth. The PRP formula is injected with a thin needle into the scalp in the thinning or balding areas to increase and enhance hair growth.
PRP hair restoration is recommended for areas where the hair is thinning, as it will not grow new hair but instead strengthen and thicken existing hair.
You are not a candidate for PRP if you:
- Have medical conditions such as chronic liver disease, skin diseases or cancer, metabolic and systemic disorders
- Have undergone anti-coagulation therapy
- If you have type of platelet dysfunction syndromes
Dr. Cummins is directly involved in all consultations, and will help diagnose any pre-existing conditions that may be causing your symptoms.
There are many benefits to using PRP for hair restoration including:
- Slows the hair loss process
- Non-invasive procedure
- All natural, safe treatment
- Little to no downtime required
- Noticeable results within 60 days
- Affordable alternative to hats, wigs, or balding
The PRP Therapy procedure for hair restoration is a same-day procedure that requires little to no downtime for patients. Patients may shower and shampoo their hair as usual immediately following the treatment, and return to normal activities. Procedures are typically performed in a series of 2-3 treatments, and they can be repeated every 6-12 months for enhanced results.
For many patients, it can take between six to twelve months to see the highest rates of results, with noticeable thickness occurring in as little as a month after the procedure.
