PRP for Hair in Bucks County, PA, and Hunterdon County, NJ

One of the latest, groundbreaking methods for hair restoration is platelet-rich plasma or PRP. Located in Doylestown, PA and Flemington, NJ, Buinewicz Plastic Surgery, led by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian R. Buinewicz, is proud to offer PRP therapy for hair restoration to both men and women near Hunterdon County, NJ and Bucks County, PA.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was discovered in the medical field as having many medical benefits, including healing tissues. PRP has quickly become one of the fastest-growing treatments in popularity for a number of medical conditions, including hair loss, as it is clinically proven to rouse the body’s own natural healing response. Dr. Buinewicz uses PRP therapy to stimulate the cells that promote natural hair growth in the comfort of his plastic surgery office.

How Does PRP Work?

Blood plasma has growth factors in it that support your body’s capacity to restore body tissue when you experience illness or trauma. Research has shown that when PRP is singled out in the blood, it can be used to accelerate healing.

What is PRP for Hair Restoration?

By isolating the plasma and growth factors for treatment, Dr. Buinewicz is able to help patients restore their own hair without surgery. Hair restoration with PRP is an outpatient procedure and produces less discomfort than other hair restoration methods.

Benefits of PRP for Hair Restoration

Patients prefer PRP for hair restoration when they want a treatment that:

  • Is relatively quick and easy.
  • Has fewer risks associated with it and less risk of adverse reactions.
  • Triggers natural hair growth without surgery.
  • Protects hair follicles from miniaturization.
  • Is appropriate for both men and women.
  • Provides gradual, natural results.

How is PRP for Hair Restoration Performed?

For the majority of patients, the procedure for PRP therapy takes less than an hour to perform. Dr. Buinewicz gathers a small amount of blood into a special tube which is then placed in a centrifuge and spun in order to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. Your scalp is then cleaned with antiseptic, and the PRP is injected into the treatment area. A device with hundreds of tiny needles is used to create micro-perforations in your scalp. This microneedling allows the PRP to penetrate the deeper layers of the scalp, thus promoting better hair growth. Dr. Buinewicz may also apply more PRP during or after the microneedling procedure, in some cases.

For best results, Dr. Buinewicz may recommend follow-up treatments every two to four months.

Preparing for PRP for Hair Restoration

The day of your procedure, wash your hair, paying special attention to your scalp. Refrain from using styling products, as they can inhibit the penetration of PRP into your scalp.

Recovery from PRP for Hair Restoration

You may feel some numbness or sensitivity of the scalp after the microneedling and PRP treatment. These symptoms usually last only a few hours. There are no restrictions on your daily activities following your hair restoration procedure.

How much does PRP for Hair Restoration Cost in Bucks County, PA?

The cost will vary from person to person as hair restoration treatment is customized to fit each patient’s unique hair loss pattern. Dr. Buinewicz will explain the extent of your specific procedure with PRP during your one-on-one consultation, and we will provide a complete cost analysis after this initial appointment. Buinewicz Plastic Surgery strives to make PRP therapy for hair loss accessible and affordable for everyone desiring a non-surgical, minimally invasive option for hair restoration.

Is PRP for Hair Restoration Right for Me?

To be considered an ideal candidate for hair restoration using PRP, you should first work with your primary care physician to understand the underlying cause of your hair loss. If you have a medical condition that causes hair loss, the improved hair volume after PRP therapy could be temporary. Once your physician determines that you do not have such an underlying condition, or the condition is under control, you may be a good candidate for PRP therapy. Dr. Buinewicz will take the time to assess your hair volume, quality, and coverage to further determine if PRP therapy is the best option for you and your hair restoration goals.

What to Expect During your Consultation

Your one-on-one consultation appointment with Dr. Buinewicz is an opportunity to learn about hair loss from an expert. Dr. Buinewicz will examine your hair and scalp, making sure to explain his findings in a way that helps you feel confident about your choice to undergo hair restoration treatment. You will be given all of the information necessary to make an informed decision about whether or not PRP therapy is the right path for you.
