How PRP Can Help Restore Your Hair

How PRP Can Help Restore Your Hair

The numbers surrounding hair loss in men and women in the United States are eye-opening — half of women experience thinning hair and the opposite sex has it even worse, as 85% of men have considerably thinner hair by the age of 50.

If you’re displeased by the effect that thinning hair has on your appearance, but you’re hesitant to undergo painful and invasive hair transplant solutions, our team here at Pain Medicine Consultants has the perfect solution. 

It’s called RestorationPlusMD, and here’s a look at how we can use it to combat thinning hair, naturally and relatively painlessly.

A four-step process toward more hair

You might ask yourself why a pain management practice offers hair restoration. The answer is simple: We use the same regenerative medicine practices that we do to heal tissue damage.

Since we understand the power of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, when it comes to healing, we also understand that the approach has other applications, such as hair restoration.

While PRP therapy lies at the heart of our hair restoration services, it’s only part of a comprehensive four-step process that promotes natural hair growth. These steps include:

PRP therapy

We draw some of your own blood, separate out the platelets, and then inject the concentrate into your scalp. The platelets contain growth factors that encourage follicular health and development, as well as additional vascularization.

Red light therapy

Once we administer your PRP injections, we apply a low-level laser light to your scalp using an iRestore® headset. This light encourages better circulation in your scalp, which supports follicle health.


We also supply you with certain supplements that encourage follicular health, such as vitamins A, B, C, D, and E, as well as iron.

Specialized shampoo

Lastly, we provide you with a specialized shampoo that contains biotin for healthy hair growth.

As you can see, our approach to hair loss is comprehensive, effective, natural, and relatively pain-free.

Candidates for RestorationPlusMD

If you’re interested in undergoing hair restoration with us, there are a few things you should consider. First, these treatments work well in areas where your hair is thinning. If your scalp is fully bald and shiny, we won’t be able to resurrect the hair follicles.

Second, you will likely require a series of PRP injections, as well as red light therapy sessions, so be prepared to visit with us more than once. We space the PRP injections apart by two months, and we generally recommend three rounds for optimal results.

Outside of these considerations, our hair restoration carries little to no risk or discomfort, and we’re sure you’re going to love the results.

To get started on your hair regrowth, please contact one of our offices in Pleasanton, Pleasant Hill, or Corte Madera, California, to schedule an appointment.
