As we age, our hair follicles respond to changes in hormones, diet, and lifestyle by slowing down and going dormant. Dormant hair follicles means thinning hair, and for some individuals, noticeable hair loss. This hair loss can also affect both sexes, with about 50 million men and 30 million women experiencing at least some hair loss.
There are seemingly hundreds of different over-the-counter and prescription strength hair loss treatments available. PRP hair restoration has recently surfaced as a possible treatment as well. PRP hair restoration harnesses your body's own regenerative potential to stimulate dormant follicles, without chemicals and systemic medications. During treatments, blood is isolated by Dr. Berger from clients, treated in office to isolate the prp, and then injected directly into the client's scalp. Essentially, client's are using their own body's growth factors to grow new hair!
PRP can be amazingly effective. Studies have shown PRP hair treatments can increase hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of hair. In 2019, a study even showed PRP treatments to be more effective in addressing hair loss than Rogaine. This makes PRP hair restoration a desirable and successful treatment for both men and women looking to achieve significant hair regrowth in a low-risk and natural way.
Very little downtime is required for PRP microneedling. The skin will initially appear red, like a sun burn. This effect will last 1-2 days. On the day of treatment, you will not want to wash your face or apply product to your face until the following day. Ideally, do not wear makeup for 3-4 days after treatment to allow the skin's microchannels to fully close.

Anyone experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP hair restoration, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a hormonally-derived form of hair thinning that typically occurs along the top of the head. In women, this may look like a widening part-line with normal hair thickness at the back of the head.

PRP facials, also known as "vampire" facials are named after the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that is taken from the patient's own blood. PRP is the portion of your blood that contains cell components called platelets and their growth factors. Together they can trigger cell proliferation, speed healing, and stimulate tissue regeneration. With the PRP facial, the result is a noticeably fresher appearance of the skin, and reduction in fine lines and crepey-ness due to new collagen formation. Only a small vial of blood is required for the procedure, and a centrifuge is used to separate the valuable plasma from the rest of the blood components. The PRP is then infused into the skin via the microneedling treatment.
