What is PRP Hair Loss Treatment?
PRP Therapy is a low risk, highly effective treatment for hair loss that is sweeping the hair replacement community … and it’s now available right here in the Durango area.
PRP is effective for both men and women at correcting established hair loss; from thinning eyebrows to a preventative treatment combating the very first signs of hair loss.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This plasma is the part of your blood that controls clotting and healing and stimulates the growth of new skin.
PRP Therapy has been used in the medical community for years as a way to decrease healing time for wounds. In fact, PRP therapy has had a strong presence in orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery fields for two decades.
Doctors in the hair replacement community have recently begun to explore the benefits of PRP on hair follicle stimulation and hair regrowth, and the results are remarkable.
PRP is a natural way to stimulate your own hair growth with cells from your own body. It is the ultimate way to manage and reverse your hair loss and get your confidence back. Because the PRP is based on your individual cells, it’s a highly effective treatment for men and women, and can be used with other treatments for even more impressive results.
Take control of your appearance and live your life with a fuller, healthier head of your own hair!

A New and Innovative Process to Rejuvenate Your Hair Growth Naturally
The Treatment Process:
The platelet rich plasma therapy treatment is straightforward.
- Hair restoration begins by drawing blood from the patient.
- It is then spun in a centrifuge which separates the blood from the platelets and plasma.
- After the platelets and plasma are prepared, they are injected just under the scalp in areas where hair growth is desired.
Platelet rich plasma therapy is safe because the patient’s own blood products are used so there is no chance of rejection. PRP has long been used by orthopedists to promote growth and healing of tendons.
