What is PRP THerapy for Hair Loss?
Hair thinning is a major concern for many men and women, whether genetics, age, hormones, health conditions, or styling products or practices bring it on. With recent advances in research within the hair restoration field, new procedures are being made to help combat the problem.

PRP has shown promising results in patients with alopecia areata or thinning eyebrows. Our Glow Aesthetics + Wellness team is just one of a small handful of hair restoration specialists to provide this revolutionary therapy in Wapello, IA. By combining a powerful solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins, Our team can help strengthen your hair, resulting in longer, thicker, healthier locks.
what can I expect from PRP therapy for hair loss?
A nonsurgical procedure, the PRP therapy is a short one-hour in-office visit. The procedure starts with drawing a small amount of your blood and placing it in a special machine, which rotates the blood at high speed to remove the platelets from the remaining portion of the blood components. Next, a local anesthetic will be administered to your scalp, and the platelet-rich plasma is introduced into parts of your head that are bald or thinning. Finally, microneedling is performed on the scalp to cause micro-trauma and micro-channels to the epidermis, which triggers the PRP and permits it to penetrate deep into the skin. Our protocol for nonsurgical management of baldness consists of an initial treatment and maintenance treatments approximately every nine months to one year.
There's no downtime following this process with no limits or constraints. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minor swelling, and mild tenderness in the treated areas. These symptoms can last up to 48 hours. While outcomes differ for each patient, cosmetic results are commonly noticed approximately 4 – 6 months after the initial treatment and can continue improving up to a year following treatment. As PRP isn't a permanent solution for hair loss, repeat sessions are suggested every 12 – 18 months. It is crucial to note that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in locations where you are already bald. It is utilized to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce fuller, healthier, longer hair fibers.
