PRP Therapy in Atlanta, GA
Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is one of the newest techniques for treating hair loss. The Hair Transplant Center of Atlanta, led by Dr. Frederick T. Work, Jr., offers PRP therapy for hair restoration for men and women who live in and around Buckhead, Vinings, and Sandy Springs.
The benefits of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) was discovered in the medical field as a natural substance for healing tissues. PRP is clinically proven to stimulate the body’s natural healing response and is now one of the fastest-growing treatments for a variety of medical conditions, including hair loss. Dr. Work performs PRP therapy in his office to stimulate the cells that promote natural hair growth.
How Does PRP Work?
The plasma in your blood contains growth factors that support your body’s ability to regenerate tissue when you have a wound or illness. Research in Europe and the U.S. have shown that PRP, when isolated in the blood, can be used to expedite healing.
What is PRP for Hair Restoration?
By isolating the plasma and growth factors and using it for treatment, Dr. Work is able to help men and women regrow their own hair without surgery. The procedure is performed on an outpatient basis and the procedure produces less discomfort than other hair restoration procedures.
Benefits of PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP for hair restoration is preferred by men and women who want a treatment that:
- Is quick and easy.
- Has fewer risks associated with adverse reactions.
- Triggers natural hair growth without surgery.
- Protects hair follicles from shrinking (miniaturization).
- Is appropriate for both men and women.
- Gives gradual, natural results.
How is PRP for Hair Restoration Performed?
The procedure for PRP therapy takes less than an hour for most men and women. Dr. Work draws a small amount of blood into a special tube. The tube is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Your scalp is cleaned with antiseptic and the PRP is injected into the treatment area. A device with hundreds of tiny needles is used to create micro-perforations in your scalp. The microneedling allows the PRP to penetrate the deeper layers of the scalp and promote hair growth. In some cases, Dr. Work may apply PRP during or after the microneedling procedure.
For best results, Dr. Work may recommend follow-up treatments every two to four months.
Preparing for PRP for Hair Restoration
The day of your PRP treatment for hair loss, wash your hair and pay special attention to cleaning your scalp. Avoid using styling products, as these can interfere with the penetration of PRP into the scalp.
Recovery from PRP for Hair Restoration
Your scalp may feel numb or sensitive after the PRP treatment and microneedling. The symptoms typically last only a few hours. PRP therapy requires no restriction on your activities.

Is PRP for Hair Restoration Right for Me?
To be considered for PRP for hair restoration, you should first work with your primary physician to determine the underlying cause of your hair loss. If you have a medical condition that causes hair loss, the improved hair volume after PRP therapy could be short lived. Once your physician determines that you do not have an underlying condition or the condition is managed, you may be a good candidate for PRP therapy. In general, Dr. Work will assess your hair volume, quality, and coverage to determine if PRP therapy is the best option for you.
What to Expect During your Consultation
Your consultation is an opportunity to learn about your hair loss from an expert. Dr. Work examines your scalp and hair, explaining his findings in a way that helps you feel confident about your choice to undergo PRP therapy and other hair restoration treatments. If PRP therapy for hair loss is right for you, Dr. Work explains the treatment and anticipated results.
