Losing your hair can result in a loss of self-confidence and serve as a reminder that you are aging. Maybe you have tried several different medications and therapies to restore your hair.
If you haven’t found something that works for you, Anti-Aging & Regenerative Associates proudly offers a promising treatment known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair restoration®. This therapy offered in Daytona Beach, FL could be just what you’re looking for.
What Is PRP?
PRP is a therapy that involves drawing your blood, processing it, and injecting it into your scalp to increase the supply of blood to hair follicles to stimulate hair growth and thickness.
This therapy has been around since the 1980s, and research shows it is a promising method for hair restoration. It gives hope to people like you that we can turn back time and make you confident to look in the mirror again.

The PRP Process
After an evaluation where we determine whether you qualify for PRP hair restoration®, there are three steps in the process a staff member performs:
- Step One: We will make you comfortable and draw blood from your arm.
- Step Two: We will place your blood into a centrifuge that will spin rapidly for ten minutes to separate into three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells.
- Step Three: We will use a syringe to draw the platelet-rich plasma layer and inject it into locations on your scalp requiring hair restoration.
Most PRP hair restoration® appointments are quick, taking around 30-60 minutes to complete, and you will need three sessions over four to six weeks.
Having your blood drawn can make you feel nauseous and dizzy. You may also sweat, look pale, experience a drop in your heart rate or blood pressure, and even pass out.
We will do everything we can to help you relax and ensure you feel fine before leaving our office.

Potential Side Effects of PRP Hair Restoration®
PRP hair restoration® uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t any potential risks. While you are not at risk of a communicable disease, you could experience the following side effects:
- Blood vessel and nerve damage: Since the therapy requires a blood draw and multiple injections, you could experience potential damage to blood vessels and nerves.
- Injection point calcification: You could experience a calcium deposit buildup in the blood vessel.
- Allergic reaction to anesthetic: We use an anesthetic as part of the therapy, so let us know if you are allergic to anesthetics.
Other side effects include:
- Temporary bleeding from injection sites
- Scar tissue
If you experience any of the above side effects, please inform us right away. Side effects are rare, non-life threatening, and should disappear shortly after treatment.

Does PRP Hair Restoration® Actually Work?
While PRP hair restoration® won’t cure baldness, it can improve the appearance and thickness of your hair, especially for men and women with thinning hair or male or female pattern baldness symptoms.
In one study by the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery, patients reported an increase in hair count and a reduction in hair loss. This gives PRP hair restoration® a theoretical scientific basis as an effective treatment option, although future research is necessary.
How Long Does PRP Hair Restoration® Last?
Naturally, you want to know how long the treatment will take to work and if the results will last. You will need four to six therapy sessions to begin achieving results. In addition, you should be able to enjoy 18-24 months of new hair growth.
Unfortunately, these results are not permanent. You will need maintenance sessions at least every four to six months.
The Cost of PRP Hair Restoration® in Volusia County, FL
We are a cash practice and do not accept insurance, which generally considers PRP hair restoration® a cosmetic procedure and does not cover it anyway. So, you should be aware you must pay for this treatment out of pocket.
That being said, the cost will vary depending on your location, the quality of the equipment, how many injections you need, and whether you choose to add nutritive components, such as hair growth supplements, to your treatment.
