Platelet Rich Plasma is a natural hair loss solution because growth factors isolated from the patient’s own blood are used to improve the overall health of your scalp, rejuvenate hair follicles, stimulate hair-production and add thickness to thinning hair. PRP has been used to treat sports injuries and regenerate joints for several years. Now this innovative technology is available for hair restoration in our NYC office.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is a new and innovative hair loss treatment that is 100% natural. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is extracted from the patient’s own blood, and injected into the scalp to stimulate the hair growth process. During this procedure, Dr. Goldenberg isolates platelet rich plasma, creating a solution of growth factors which halt hair thinning and loss and promote new hair growth.
The PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) found within a person’s blood contain hundreds of different “growth factors” which – when injected into the scalp – repair dormant and damaged hair follicles and promote hair growth.
During hair loss process, hair either becomes thin to the point where it can’t grow any more, or it simply falls out to due to lack of nutrition and support from the body and does not regrow. The growth factors found in PRP are able to “wake up” thinning and weak hair follicles, as well as support ongoing follicle health. This stops hair thinning and loss and promotes hair growth. PRP hair loss treatment has been proven in clinical trials to provides uniform and consistent hair restoration results in both men and women.

Dr. Goldenberg then administers a series of Platelet Rich Plasma injections into the scalp. The enriched formulation is designed to initiate the natural hair-growth process. Each PRP hair loss treatment is performed in under an hour.
