About PRP + Hair Loss
Hair loss is a major concern for many women and men, whether it is caused by age, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, or from styling practices, and/or products. With recent advances in research in the hair restoration field, new treatments have been created to help combat the condition. Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is an innovative nonsurgical treatment for men and women that is showing remarkable results in slowing down or stopping hair loss. PRP has also shown promising outcomes in patients with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. We take PRP one step further with Pure PRL Plus treatments that combine a powerful solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins to strengthen your hair growth, leading to longer, thicker, healthier locks.

"I have previously shared my love of Dr Duncan and her care. However, I need to add special props to Patient Care Coordinator Jahira Garrett and Virginia Marx, RN, Nurse Practitioner.I can’t say enough good things about Ms Garrett. She’s taken care of me for all of my appointments this year. She’s always so personable, reassuring, relatable and most importantly direct and honest.After needing some tweaking on a prior cosmetic procedure Ms Garrett got me in to an appointment quickly and well taken cared for by Ms Marx NP. Although I need a few more weeks to see the full results I’m already very pleased."- L.L. / Yelp / Jul 02, 2021
"I needed to have something looked at and couldn’t get a quick appointment at my usual Sugar Land location so I asked about Pearland. They had a cancellation that afternoon. I made the 30 minute drive and was seen by Alyx. (sp?) She was great. Took a look, diagnosed my issue and told me which of my medications to use. She answered all my questions.A Happy Customer"- L.R. / Yelp / Jun 16, 2021
Any individual experiencing hair loss is essentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those with early hair loss tend to respond best. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that usually occurs along the top of the head. In women, this may look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head. Patients with areas of "weak quality" hair growth on the scalp with still functioning hair follicles usually have the greatest success with PRP hair regrowth treatments.
A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy for hair is a 60 – 90-minute in-office visit. The process begins with drawing your blood and placing the sample of it in a special centrifuge, which spins it at high speeds to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components. The PRP will be put into a syringe to make it available for injection. You may talk to your injector about an anesthetic for your scalp before the injections begin. Multiple injections of PRP will go directly into the areas that are thinning or bald. If microneedling is performed on the scalp, it will create micro-channels so the PRP therapy applied topically can be absorbed deeply.
What to Expect
There is no downtime following this procedure with virtually no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild tenderness to the treated areas. These symptoms may last up to 48 hours. While results differ for each patient, cosmetic results are generally seen around 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and will continue to improve up to a full year following treatment. As PRP is not a permanent solution for hair loss, repeat treatments are recommended every 12 – 18 months. It is very important to note that PRP does not grow new hair follicles in areas where you are already bald. It is used to help reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.
