PRP Hair Treatment


At our Ferrer & Monaghan Vein and Aesthetic Center locations in Horseheads and Ithaca, NY, we offer PRP treatments that improve the complexion, combat aging, reduce the appearance of acne scars, and promote hair growth. These treatments are natural, powerful, and effective, and they deliver gradual results, but the results are also noticeable and risk-free. Whether you want to improve your skin or promote hair growth, we can design a unique treatment plan using your PRP to improve your appearance.

PRP Hair Treatment in Ithaca, New York

PRP treatments are growing in popularity among patients who want to take a natural approach to hair care, yet still achieve dramatic results. If you’re not willing to compromise your health with harsh topical ingredients to promote hair growth or aren’t ready to commit to invasive treatments, we want to introduce you to our PRP treatments. PRP treatments use platelet-rich plasma to repair damaged hair follicles and awaken dormant ones to promote hair growth.

How They Work

PRP is platelet-rich plasma, and we can only use the PRP that’s found in your blood. We perform a standard blood draw with an IV to collect a blood sample which we will place in a unique device called a centrifuge.

The centrifuge uses gravitational forces and spins the blood sample rapidly for several minutes, which separates the PRP from the plasma. We then isolate the PRP and prepare it into a topical or injectable solution to use during your treatment process.

PRP Hair Growth Platelets

How It Works

Microneedling is a powerful and natural treatment on its own, but the results get even better when you add PRP or PRF to the process. PRF stands for platelet-rich fibrin and is also found in the blood. We obtain it the same way we obtain PRP. To begin the treatment, we will apply a topical numbing solution to your skin which will help maintain your comfort during the needling aspect of the treatment.

We will use the SkinPen, which is a pen-like device fitted with a sterile, single-use needle cartridge, and once it’s activated, we’ll glide it across your skin’s surface. The SkinPen will create tiny microchannels, which are also punctures and micro-injuries on the skin’s surface. Then, we will apply topical PRP or PRF after obtaining it from your blood to your skin. The PRP and PRF will absorb into those channels to help enhance your treatment results.

When To Expect Results

Patients typically notice the best results after scheduling at least three sessions spaced four weeks apart. 

Hair Restoration Treatments with PRP

Hair restoration treatments don’t have to be surgical to work. We offer hair restoration treatments with PRP as well as PDO thread treatments specifically designed for the scalp to help men and women grow fuller, healthier hair.Whether your hair has thinned due to genetics, the aging process, lifestyle, environmental factors, or certain health conditions, we can design a natural treatment plan with PRP and PDO threads to help stimulate your body’s natural ability to grow hair. These hair restoration treatments don’t rely on unnatural ingredients or chemicals to promote hair growth but instead use natural and safe methods that work.

How the Treatment Process Works

After taking a sample of your blood during the treatment, we’ll prepare it into an injectable form and make a series of strategic injections into different areas on the scalp where you want to promote hair growth. You won’t see immediate results, but your hair will begin growing thicker, fuller, and healthier in your designated treatment areas in the weeks following your first session. You may need several sessions to achieve your desired results. However, as soon as you begin treatment, the PRP’s growth factors and regenerative aspects will begin working to heal hair follicles and promote improved scalp health.

Enhancing Your Hair Restoration Treatment Plan with PDO Threads

Not only do we offer hair restoration treatments with PRP, but we also offer PDO threads designed for the scalp. PDO threads are made of polydioxanone and are used during surgical procedures. They’re safe and fully absorbable, and when used in cosmetic treatments, their presence in the skin’s foundational layers promotes increased collagen and elastin production. We can use these threads for hair restoration by injecting them into different areas of the scalp to accelerate hair growth and stimulate collagen and elastin production. We take every measure to ensure patient comfort during this treatment process. If necessary, we can add additional treatment options to your hair restoration treatment plan, including Pronox or other hair growth medications. Together, different hair growth treatments can work to help you regrow your hair and improve your scalp health.
