Understanding the Role of PRP Scalp Therapy in Fighting Baldness

By: Michelle Eyler, ANP-BC


A common misconception is that hair loss only happens to men as they reach middle age and beyond. In reality, both men and women of almost any age can experience thinning hair, a widening part, and even baldness — all of which can be frustrating and take a toll on a person's self-confidence. Despite the multitude of over-the-counter hair growth products available today, many are ineffective or require constant upkeep. Hair transplant surgery, on the other hand, comes with a number of downsides — from a lengthy recovery period to scarring and, in some cases, unnatural-looking results. At Ageless Skin and Laser Center, board-certified nurse practitioner Michelle Eyler and our dedicated team are proud to help patients tackle their hair loss in a natural and modern way with PRP scalp therapy in Hagerstown, MD.

Why is my hair falling out?

If it seems like you are starting to lose more and more strands each time you take a shower or style your hair, it may not be in your imagination. Many people struggle with excessive shedding, thinning, and other forms of hair loss, which may be the result of one or more factors, such as:

  • Stress
  • Genetics
  • Dietary insufficiencies
  • Underlying medical condition
  • Overstyling
  • Harsh products

If you notice that your part is getting wider, you're developing bald spots, your hairline is receding, or your hair simply looks and feels progressively thinner, you may benefit from nonsurgical PRP scalp therapy for hair loss.

How does PRP therapy stimulate hair growth?

PRP, which stands for platelet-rich plasma, is a powerful substance found in a person's blood. PRP contains bioactive proteins, growth factors, and other nutrients that can help to stimulate the body's natural healing and regenerative properties. When injected into the scalp for hair loss, PRP therapy can:

  • Increase hair thickness and volume
  • Promote new hair growth
  • Strengthen existing hair follicles
  • Calm scalp inflammation
  • Boost circulation in the scalp
  • Reduce itching, flaking, and scalp irritation

With PRP scalp therapy, patients can once again enjoy a denser, fuller, more youthful-looking head of hair without the need for incisions, scarring, or prolonged downtime.

What happens during a PRP scalp therapy treatment?

Your PRP hair growth treatment at Ageless Skin and Laser Center will begin with a standard blood draw from your arm. The tube of blood will then be placed in a double-spin centrifuge, which allows up to 7 – 10x more PRP serum to be produced compared with single-spin systems. A topical numbing cream can be applied to your scalp to reduce discomfort, and the PRP will then be injected into strategic areas of the scalp using a fine needle. Over time, patients will notice increased hair growth, density, and strength thanks to the natural healing and regenerative properties found in their own blood.
