PRP for Hair Growth
PRP has been shown to improve hair density and promote follicular proliferation. Here at Natural Medicine of Seattle, we’ve developed a Hair Restoration Program using PRP to slow hair loss and thinning.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is the fastest trending regenerative option for hair regrowth. The procedure is very straightforward and fairly quick. A regular blood draw is performed to collect your blood, which is processed in a centrifuge. The platelets are then removed from the blood sample and injected into your scalp while you relax comfortably.
Why platelets? Long known for wound healing, platelets produce growth factors. At high concentrations, growth factors stimulate the hair follicles, invigorating the follicular stem cells, promoting new hair growth.
Will It Hurt?
We provide the option to use a topical numbing cream, but many of our patients do great without it! You will feel little pricks and some pressure. The scalp injections usually take about 10-15 min. Your scalp may feel slightly uncomfortable and tight afterwards, which usually decreases within the day.
How Fast Will My Hair Grow Back?
We recommend 4 monthly treatments of PRP, followed by reassessment 2-3 months later. Typically hair growth can be seen by the 3rd treatment, as hair takes about 3 months to cycle and turnover. In the meantime, our patients note a reduced rate of hair loss, with stronger and thicker shafts of hair. The volume of hair regrowth will vary depending on the person and cause of the hair loss. You will be given at-home tools to continue promoting the process.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Lauren Procopio for about 3 years. I have used her specialty in therapeutic I.V. to avoid the flu this year twice, as well as Iron I.V. to treat my iron anemia. I am thankful there are options available for a self employed practitioner to maintain my health, avoid time loss, and walk the health talk. The treatments available go way beyond this and I highly recommend her as a Naturopathic Doctor.”
