PRP Hair Restoration in Princeton, NJ
Are you concerned about losing your hair? If you are in the initial stages of balding, are experiencing excessive shedding, or your hair is thinning, you deserve to find out about the natural way to trigger hair growth. PRP hair restoration works for both men and women to reactivate hair follicles that are becoming dormant and producing thinner, finer hair strands. The best results of this treatment are achieved in the preliminary stages of hair loss.
What is PRP hair restoration?
Aging hair follicles shrink in size, then become dormant, eventually unable to produce hair. PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has the capacity to stimulate natural regeneration. At Hazen Plastic Surgery, we use PRFM which is a platelet-rich fibrin matrix that strengthens the PRP and increases the benefits of hair restoration by 15% as well as speeding up healing time. The PRP is derived from your own blood and is injected into the thinning areas of your scalp, sending a signal to the follicles to regenerate. The stem cells in the hair follicles are triggered to restore and produce healthy, thick strands of hair. The PRP serum is rich in growth factors, a natural component in your blood that speeds healing and cell growth.
Is PRP hair restoration right for me?
Men and women both suffer from natural hair loss. Thinning hair may be the result of genetics, stress, or a side effect of some medications. Men typically first experience a receding hairline, and then thinning hair at the crown of the head. While nature may dictate hair loss, you have the option to slow the process with PRP hair restoration using PRFM for more effective results. With women, the hair loss occurs differently, first noticeable at the part, or by excessive shedding. PRP hair restoration can help you keep hair loss at bay, by keeping the hair follicles nourished and functioning as nature intended.

Hormone-related baldness and PRP hair restoration
One of the most common types of hair loss is termed “AGA,” or “androgenetic alopecia.” This is a genetic condition that affects men and women. Men may begin to experience hair loss as early as the twenties and see the hairline receding. Women typically are affected in the forties, with hair loss occurring all over the scalp, and new hair thinner and finer. At one time, there was little hope of avoiding inherited balding, but with PRP hair restoration, either performed on its own or in conjunction with hair growth medications or advanced hair transplants, can allow you to maintain a healthy head of hair and avoid genetic balding.
PRP hair restoration – the treatment experience
Your journey to healthier hair starts with a blood draw, just as you would expect at the doctor. Your scalp will be numbed with an anesthetic. The blood is processed to create the PRP serum, and once your scalp is numbed, is loaded into syringes, and injected into the thinning areas of your scalp. We may perform microneedling on the scalp as an option. All our PRP hair restoration treatments are 100 percent customized and geared to be most effective for the individual.
Your recovery from PRP hair restoration
The recovery time after PRP hair restoration is minimal. You are free to return to your usual activities following your treatment. You could experience some minor pain and swelling at the injection sites. You will need some patience to enjoy the results. As the PRP affects the hair follicles, they begin to regenerate, with increased hair growth and thicker strands appearing within a few months. You may need a series of treatments, performed every six to twelve months to achieve optimal results of this groundbreaking hair restoration treatment.

Does PRP hair restoration work?
Scientific research has revealed that PRP hair restoration is effective. In a study, most subjects experienced hair regrowth.
Can PRP hair restoration treat balding areas?
This treatment must be performed in the initial stages of balding. Once the area is bald, the follicles cannot be restored. PRP hair restoration must be performed before you are bald. However, if you are planning to undergo a hair transplant, the addition of PRP can help the transplanted hair follicles become established and healthy in the new location.
Will I have to take time off work?
No. PRP hair restoration does not have a long or difficult recovery time, and merely involves a series of injections of PRP into the thinning areas of your scalp, after which you can return to your usual activities.
How much does PRP hair restoration cost?
Every person is different, but generally, PRP hair restoration treatments are more affordable than hair transplant techniques or the long-term cost of hair growth medications. Many people who are losing their hair are overjoyed to undergo a treatment that is natural, effective, and safe.

How long will my results last?
You should enjoy the results of your treatment for about one year, after which you can undergo another treatment to keep your hair thicker, healthier, and fight back against natural balding and hair shedding.
How many PRP hair restoration treatments will I need?
The best results can be achieved with a series of PRP injections, performed each month, typically four. This allows the PRP to reach the hair follicles that are going dormant and ensure they are activated and coming back to life.
What does the PRP do?
Hair loss is related to “miniaturization,” when the hair follicle shrinks in size. This is the underlying cause of baldness in both men and women. The PRP sends a message to the follicle, triggering natural cell growth, restoring the ability to produce thick, healthy hair strands. If you are in the preliminary stages of balding, undergoing this treatment now can make a dramatic difference, warding off the advance of genetic balding.
