What Is PRP for Hair Loss in New York City?
Platelet-rich plasma, also known as PRP, is the liquid portion of the blood that includes platelets, a specific type of cell in your blood containing tons of nutrients. Growth factors, cytokines, vitamins, and proteins within the platelets encourage cell production and tissue regeneration, and they are an essential element for healing damaged tissue. While PRP can be used for various applications (PRP Microneedling, PRP injections for skin rejuvenation, boosters for laser procedures, under eye dark circles), it is most notably used in stimulating hair follicles and sparking hair regrowth.
This therapy poses low risk with little to no side effects as PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood. In fact, Dr. Glodny considers PRP a type of “organic” therapy, free of harmful chemicals and/or medications. The risk of rejection or allergic reaction is, therefore, considerably low to non-existent compared to other injectable forms of treatment.

What Can I Expect During a PRP Hair Restoration Treatment in Manhattan?
During PRP treatment, your blood is drawn, and the PRP is concentrated before being administered. Concentrated PRP contains three to five times more platelets and growth factors than circulating blood. One of the most important aspects of PRP hair loss treatments is the density of PRP yielded from your blood. At Park Ave Derm we ensure the highest concentration possible by using the ProGen Eclipse system.
After the PRP is prepared, it is injected into the targeted areas of the scalp to slow down hair loss, thicken hair follicles and stimulate hair regrowth.
Since the dermatologists at Park Ave Derm are globally recognized hair experts, we typically recommend PRP therapy in conjunction with other forms of medical grade treatments in order to maximize the benefits you will experience. For example, Dr. Glodny employs a unique set of ingredients compounded at a local pharmacy which includes a mixture of the most effective medications and ingredients at the highest concentrations possible to supplement the benefits you can see with PRP therapy. Together, each treatment works to synergistically improve hair thickness and the rate of hair growth to ensure optimal results.

PRP for Hair Loss Procedure in NYC Overview
On the day of your PRP for hair loss procedure, we ask you to come to our office with clean hair and scalp. Dr. Glodny will review the details of your procedure and answer any final questions you have.
It is recommended that you arrive about 30 minutes prior to the start of your scheduled appointment to allow for the office to draw and process your blood. Some numbing medication (lidocaine 2%) is mixed with your PRP prior to injection therefore no topical numbing medication is typically used.
To start, our nurses will draw your blood from one of your preferred arms, similar to when you may have had blood drawn in the past for laboratory testing. Then, the blood will be placed into a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. Finally, after your blood has been processed and lidocaine 2% has been added the PRP will be injected into the areas of concern. Most often the PRP is injected from the frontal hairline back to the crown of the scalp.
The procedure typically takes between 15-20 minutes.
You may experience some soreness or tenderness at the injection sites for a few days after your PRP for hair loss treatment, especially when raising your eyebrow. This side effect will resolve about 1-2 days after your treatment.
