PRP Hair Treatment

Having a head of thick, full, hair is something we all want. But as we age, as our bodies change, so does the density of our hair. Whether it is postpartum issues from childbirth, hereditary genes, medical issues, or our diets, hair thinning and hair loss can affect our self-esteem and the way we view ourselves. However, with the introduction of advanced technology and innovation, there is a treatment that can help reverse hair loss. PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, has gained wide attention in the cosmetic and medical world for its ability to restore hair loss. 

If you are considering PRP hair restoration in the New Jersey area, come and see the hair restoration expert team at Geria Dermatology. We how important it is to look and feel your best, safely and comfortably. 

Our practice is conveniently located to serve PRP hair restoration patients in Rutherford, Verona, Bergen, and Essex Counties.

What is a PRP Hair Treatment?

PRP Hair Restoration is a non-surgical treatment designed to treat hair loss. The process involves drawing blood from your bloodstream, processing the blood in a centrifuge, and then injecting the platelets deep into the scalp to reach the bottom of the hair follicle. This process stimulates a specialized population of cells named dermal papilla cells, which play a critical role in hair growth. 

Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications for the most effective results. Our dermatologists can help plan out a treatment that caters to your specific needs. A PRP hair treatment consists of 2-3 appointments for the best results, with maintenance treatments as an option to consider every 4-6 months. 


What are the benefits of a PRP Hair Treatment?

Our dermatologists perform PRP hair treatments on male and female clients. Here is a list of what PRP hair restoration can treat: 

  • Hair thinning
  • Stimulate growth after Alopecia loss
  • Restore thickness to hair density
  • Restore receding hairlines
  • Restore shine and vibrance to hair


This is by no means an exhaustive list of what PRP can treat and benefit. When you schedule a consultation with us, our specialists will walk you through a more extensive list of benefits and potential side effects, discussing how the treatment can help your hair loss problem.

Who are the best candidates for PRP Hair Treatment?

If you have experienced natural hair loss from aging, you might be a good candidate for PRP hair restoration in the New Jersey area. If you have Alopecia and want to know how PRP hair restoration can potentially benefit you, speak with our team of specialists as there may be instances where it can be effective. It is important to note that PRP hair restoration is not a cure for Alopecia. When you discuss your needs with our specialists and what you are looking to achieve with this treatment, we recommend having a realistic goal in mind. 

For patients who are generally healthy, and who are not excessive smokers or heavy drinkers, PRP hair restoration can have a huge benefit for your hair. If you have any serious medical issues that require medication, discuss this with our team, as we will never recommend a treatment that could be potentially harmful, or not benefit your needs.

What’s the
First Step?

The first step on the road to achieving youthful, vibrant skin is to book a consultation with one of our specialists. During the consultation we will discuss every aspect of the treatment with you, so you know what to expect. From the tools being used to the price of the treatment, you will have all the information you need. Your assigned specialist will take the time to look at the areas on your skin and face that you are looking to improve and assess how PRP hair restoration will benefit you. If we have any concerns, these will be discussed during your consultation, as we will never recommend a treatment or procedure that may potentially have adverse effects. This is also your opportunity to learn more about the treatment and ask questions you may have.

What to expect on the day of a PRP Hair treatment

Before coming to your appointment at Geria Dermatology, your provider may give you pre-procedure instructions to follow. On the day of your appointment, when you arrive at our practice, you will fill out paperwork before being taken into the treatment room where your provider will walk you through the process. 

A topical numbing agent is applied before the PRP session to ensure your comfort.

The first step in a PRP hair restoration treatment is to draw your blood. The blood draw is typically taken from your arm. 

The second step is where the blood is placed into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities), to extract the plasma. After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into three layers:

  • Platelet-poor plasma
  • Platelet-rich plasma
  • Red blood cells

The third step in the process is to inject the platelet-rich plasma into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth. Depending on the areas being treated, the entire process can roughly take 1-2 hours. 

There is no downtime required after a PRP hair restoration treatment, and you can resume regular activities. Your provider will equip you with all the information you need for the recovery period following your first appointment.

PRP Hair Treatment Recovery

There is no downtime after a PRP hair restoration treatment, but it is important not to place any extra pressure on the treatment areas. Your provider may recommend avoiding hats and certain types of restrictive head covering for a day or two. 

It is typical to feel some slight irritation or itchiness on the treatment site which you can alleviate with over-the-counter pain medication. Once your first appointment is complete, Dr. Geria and his team will continue to assess your new hair growth in your follow-up appointments.

How much?
