Thinning hair is often an embarrassing issue to have. Whether you’re a man or a woman with thinning hair, over-the-counter products don’t quite seem to work anymore.

At Optimal Health & Skin, we provide PRP therapy for hair loss to the residents of Miami, Homestead, and the neighboring cities of South Florida.
What is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component that makes up red blood cells. These platelets are rich in proteins and growth factors which are found to help promote cell turnover and rejuvenate the body’s natural processes. When PRP is used to treat thinning hair, these proteins and growth factors also help to prolong the growth phase of the hair cycle, therefore providing you with thicker, fuller hair. Because PRP therapy for hair loss is a minimally invasive procedure, it does not produce scars like other hair thickening procedures do.
How Much Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Cost?
Each individual will require a different approach to their PRP therapy for hair loss to get the most impressive results*. In an effort to fully customize each procedure to the individual, we price each procedure on a case-by-case basis. The cost of your procedure will be calculated at the time of your consultation, so that you can make the most informed decision regarding how to move forward.
That said, we understand that cosmetic dermatology procedures are often an out-of-pocket expense. In an effort to ensure our services are accessible for all of our patients, we gladly accept a wide range of payment options, including convenient financing through CareCredit®.
Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
If you are suffering from thinning hair and are looking for a minimally invasive and natural solution, PRP therapy for hair loss may be right for you. However, the best way to determine your candidacy is to schedule a consultation. This will provide you with the time you need to speak with our team and create a plan to achieve your results.
How is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Performed?
PRP Therapy for hair loss is a simple, minimally invasive procedure. Prior to your treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your scalp. This will ensure you are comfortable throughout your procedure. While waiting for your scalp to numb, your blood will be drawn and put into a centrifuge to extract the platelets and PRP. Once numb, the PRP from your blood will be strategically injected into areas the scalp affected by hair loss.
What is Recovery Like After PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Because PRP therapy for hair loss is a minimally-invasive procedure, there is no formal downtime or recovery period. Patients often experience soreness, swelling and bruising in the treatment area, however, this typically fades on its own within a few days. We do advise you wash your hair prior to treatment and avoid getting your treated area wet for 24 hours.
How Long Will the Results of my PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Last?
We recommend getting regular monthly treatments for about three to four months to see your PRP therapy results. How long each patient’s results last depends on their body’s natural reaction to the treatment process. Because hair loss is a complex condition, we advise regular maintenance treatments as well to help you achieve optimal results.
PRP Therapy for hair loss is the ideal minimally invasive solution for patients who wish to have thick, full hair without the scars and downtime associated with traditional hair transplantation procedures.
