What is PRP/PRFM Hair Restoration?

PRP hair restoration is a natural, non-surgical option for both men and women. PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma or Platelet-Rich Fibrin Matrix) is a component of your own blood that contains active growth factors and platelets that stimulate the stem cells located at the base of the hair follicle. This natural process stimulates the development of new hair follicles while improving the health of existing hair follicles. Injecting an isolated sample of PRP with at least 5-10x more concentration of platelets promotes healing and accelerates the formation of new cellular growth by nourishing the hair follicles by delivering nutrients and oxygen.

NuTress Hair Restoration Program Our hair restoration program is a perfect alternative for natural hair growth in men and women who may not be candidates for surgery, or as an adjunct to other intensive hair restoration procedures. We offer a 6 month program with 4 PRP treatments every 4-6 weeks apart and a 6 month supply of Viviscal Professional Supplements to encourage stronger and healthier hair growth.

What to Expect?

Our clinical team with meet with you to discuss treatment options. A treatment typically takes between 45min -1 hour. First, a small amount of your blood will be drawn in our office like any routine blood testing at your primary care physician's office. The blood is then put into a centrifuge which separates the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. A series of controlled injections of highly concentrated PRP are then administered to the scalp. After the procedure the most commonly reported temporary side effects are redness, swelling, bruising, tenderness, tingling/numbness and pressure at the injection sites. You may take Tylenol for pain and discomfort, although you most likely will not need to. This will diminish over the next 2-3 days. Call (847) 892-4007 to schedule a consultation with one of our experienced providers.
