PRP Hair Restoration is a procedure undergone by both men and women who are suffering from hair loss or thinning along the scalp. The procedure can help to drastically increase a person’s overall quality of life, thanks to a boost in confidence and mood that comes with feeling better about one’s appearance.

Many people have contemplated undergoing a PRP Hair Restoration procedure, but have many questions about how the aftercare might affect their lives and whether there may be any complications. The following are some of the most frequently asked questions about this unique procedure, to help alleviate some concerns and allow potential patients to make a well-informed decision.

Platelets are naturally extremely rich in the connective tissue growth and healing factors. The bodies first response to tissue injury is to deliver platelets to the area. Platelets initiate repair and attract stem cells to the injury. Injecting these growth factors into damaged hair follicles stimulates the natural repair process. In order to maximize the healing process, the platelets must be concentrated and separated from the red blood cells.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I drink alcohol after my procedure? You should avoid alcohol for at least three days before and after your procedure, as imbibing could result in slowed healing.

Can I smoke cigarettes? It is preferred that patients avoiding smoking cigarettes for a minimum of three days after their procedure. Those who avoiding smoking tend to have better results and fast healing times than those who continue to smoke.

Will I be in pain after my procedure? It is possible that you may feel a minimal to moderate amount of discomfort following the procedure, but this should steadily and significantly lessen over the next few hours.

Can I take anything for my pain? Yes. You can take Tylenol for any pain or discomfort you experience, according to the dosage instructions available on the bottle. Avoid any inflammatory medications, like Ibuprofen, however, as a triggering of the body’s natural inflammation response is necessary for optimal results.

Can I continue taking my normal medications before and/or after the treatment? If you take blood thinning medications, you can take them for at least three days before and three days after the procedure. This could potentially lead to excessive bleeding and disrupt the natural healing process. If you are taking any other long-term or over the counter medications, consult with your technicians or your primary physician to find out if it is safe to continue taking.

Can I wash my hair after the procedure? You should wait to wash your hair until at least 24 hours have passed. If possible to go longer without washing, you should try to do so. When you do wash your hair, use a shampoo that is free of sulfate. You should also avoid any haircare products (like gel, hair spray, mouse, etc.) for a minimum of three days after your procedure.


Following the proper aftercare instruction provided in the answers above is pertinent to a fast recovery. If any new questions arise, it is advisable to discuss them with the trained professional doing your procedure. They will be able to answer any questions you have pertaining to aftercare or the procedure itself.

Scalp micropigmentation is a procedure which allows for tiny, permanent points to be made along the scalp. These points resemble normal hair growth in areas where a man might no longer grow hair. Many men have contemplated the idea of undergoing a scalp micropigmentation procedure, but feel unsure what associated benefits make it worthwhile. Below, we’ve listed out the primary benefits.

1: Scalp Micropigmentation Looks Realistic

Scalp Micropigmentation can simulate hair growth in areas where hair no longer grows, and the results are realistic. It also makes the scalp look fuller in areas where there is thinning hair. This is accomplished over several different sittings, with tiny points created closer and closer together over each sitting.

2: Scalp Micropigmentation Allows Men to Feel Natural

Unlike other methods of hiding or fixing hair loss, you can be natural about what you do with your hair. There is no risk of the hair falling off or out, or washing off. Men can exercise, swim, sleep, and do anything else they’d normally do without fear of the hair disappearing and revealing the fact that they suffer from hair loss issues.

3: Scalp Micropigmentation Boosts Confidence

When men feel better about the way they look, they are able to be more confident. This confidence can go far past feeling good about the way a man looks and transfer into the rest of his life. He might feel more confident about an upcoming job promotion, or about asking out a woman he’s had his eye on for some time. This can create a significantly better quality of life than when the man was worried or felt down about his hair issues.

4: Scalp Micropigmentation May Boost Mental Health

When a man feels self-conscious about his appearance, it is possible that he will start suffering from depression or anxiety. This is because these two mental issues stem from ongoing stress. Once the issue is fixed with scalp micropigmentation, men may experience a boost in happiness that helps dispel any associated depression or anxiety they may have previously suffered.

5: Scalp Micropigmentation May Allow Men to be More Active

It’s hard to be active when worrying about whether a toupee will fall off or hair fillers will wash away. When a permanent solution like Scalp Micropigmentation is found, it might allow men to be more active. They can, for example, go swimming without fear or undergo activity that will cause them to sweat. Increased activity is great for both physical and  mental health. The average adult should be endeavoring to get at least half an hour of moderate activity each day to maintain cardiovascular health and a healthy weight.


The benefits listed above are just the five most prominent a man can receive when he undergoes Scalp Micropigmentation. The benefits listed above are not all-inclusive. There may be more benefits, based upon a man’s individual circumstances. Remember that results may vary slightly, due to unique situations and extensiveness of hair loss.

Generic Latisse Eyelash Growth Solution is a wonderful product that we are excited to offer to our clients.  It includes the same effective ingredients at half the price! 

This is a prostaglandin analog ophthalmic solution used to grow longer eyelashes, to thicken and it may also darken them.  You must be consistent in the use and should see results at approximately 6-8 weeks.

How to use:

It is recommended that you use after thoroughly washing your face and eyes, while the skin is clean and warm.  This will help with absorption of the eye lash growth serum. Using the small brush included,  pour a small droplet into the cap, then using your brush, apply directly to the skin of the upper eyelid at the base of your eyelashes.  Use it as if you are applying eyeliner but be certain to get as close to the lashes as possible. One droplet per eye is sufficient.  Always do this on clean eyes otherwise it will not absorb well.  Do this nightly for 6-8 weeks.


If you are using any prescribed products for your eyes you should consult with your eye doctor before using.

If you are sensitive you may experience itchiness or redness.  If this happens, it usually subsides with continued use as your skin adjusts.

Hair restoration PRP is a relatively new way to combat a thinning scalp or overall hair loss. During the procedure, blood is extracted from the patient and is spun in a special machine called a centrifuge. The purpose of this machine is to separate the platelets from the red blood cells to create a rich plasma.

This ‘Platelet Rich Plasma’ or PRP is then injected back into the scalp to help stimulate the dead and/or damaged hair follicles. This can create new growth or create healthier, thicker growth – depending on what the exact hair loss issue is.

The reason this works so well is that the platelets help immediately begin “healing” the damage done by the cooccurring punctures a patient will receive. These two things will cause the body to heal itself, thus rebuilding collagen and natural hair follicles simultaneously.

Preparing for Your Appointment

If you’ve decided to try hair restoration PRP to help your thinning hair or balding scalp it is important you be well informed on what is needed before the procedure. This will both keep you safe, allow you to heal effectively, and help see the most positive results.

To help you better prepare for your appointment, we’ve created a short listing of the most common questions regarding preparations for hair restoration PRP.

Can I color my hair before the procedure?

Yes. You can color your hair up to three days before your procedure but should avoid it in the one to two days before.

Can I continue taking natural supplements before my procedure, or are there adverse reactions with them?

That depends. Anything that thins the blood should be discontinued at least one week before your treatment, but preferably ten days. This includes multivitamins, as well as any supplements containing vitamin’s E or A, ginko, cod liver, flax, garlic, or essential fatty acids. You can, however, continue taking iron and vitamin D supplements.  

Can I drink?

You should avoid drinking alcoholic beverages at least three days before your appointment.

Can I smoke?

If possible, we suggest limiting your smoking habits for three days before the procedure. It is preferred you stop smoking altogether but limiting is more helpful than nothing.

Can I shampoo my hair the day before?

Yes. You can even shampoo the morning of your appointment.

Can I use other hair loss treatments before my procedure?

Yes. It is safe to continue hair replacement therapies.

Is there anything else I should know?

Yes. There are a few things you should do in the day or two before your procedure. These are as follows:

  • Ensure you are adequately hydrated the day before. This includes a minimum of six glasses of water, spaced out throughout the day. You should also have one bottle of water directly before your session.
  • Eat a normal breakfast or lunch the day of your procedure, as this helps keep blood sugars stable.
  • Please avoid any anti-inflammatory medications for a minimum of three days before your session. This includes Motrin, Ibuprofen, naproxen, aspirin, Advil, and voltaren, among others. You may, however, use Tylenol as necessary for pain or discomfort.

Microneedling PRP is sometimes called a Vampire Facial. Despite being a useful, minimally invasive procedure, which benefits the vast majority of individuals, there are a lot of myths surrounding it. These myths can withhold individuals from the associated benefits and cause misconceptions to arise about those who have received the treatment. Today we plan to clear up the most common myths to increase public awareness about what microneedling PRP really is.

What is Microneedling PRP really?

Microneedling PRP is a combination treatment of both microneedling and PRP. During microneedling (also known as collagen induction therapy) many tiny pinpricks are made in the area needing assistance. Most often it is done on the face but can be used elsewhere on the body.

This causes the body to begin healing the area because it believes it has been injured. When it does this, new collagen is produced which creates a healthier, more youthful appearance. The procedure can be done to assist with fine lines or wrinkles, sun damage, scarring, discoloration, or even acne and other skin conditions.

PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma.’ The addition of PRP to microneedling assists in quicker recovery and overall better results. During the procedure a small amount of plasma is injected back into the skin before or after the procedure to help prompt a quicker body response.

Common Myths – Busted

Myth #1: Another person’s blood is used in the procedure.

Truth: The blood isn’t really blood at all. It’s plasma, rich in platelets, which is produced from your blood but isn’t technically the same thing. Also, it is only your blood which is used in the procedure for safety purposes.

Myth #2: My body can reject the blood used.

Truth: Since it is your own blood there is no risk of rejection. Your body is literally filled with the same stuff.

Myth #3: It’s super painful.

Truth: While pictures seen online make the procedure seem excessively painful, most patients report feeling only minimal discomfort. A special numbing gel can be used to help lessen the discomfort, but it is rare that any patient states it’s super painful. This does, of course, depend entirely on your own pain thresholds.  

Myth #4: Results are immediate, and you only need one session to get them.

Truth: While microneedling PRP may seem like a miracle, the results are not immediate, and it is rare that only one session is necessary. Since the procedure works with your body’s own healing mechanisms, it can take a few weeks to see final results. This is safer, however, and lasts longer.

The number of required sessions will vary from person to person, but between three and six is typical for moderate issues.

Myth #5: You’ll leave the office looking like you just got into a fight – and you’ll feel like it too, for days.

Truth: You should feel fine upon leaving the office, although your face (or other areas) may feel painful for a few days. You may experience minor bruising and swelling up to a few days after the procedure, but you shouldn’t look like you “got into a fight.”

If you’re looking for the fountain of youth, you may just be in luck. Many experts and patients are labeling the new Microneedling PRP procedure as just that. Continue reading below to find out all about this unique procedure, including why it works so well at turning back the clock – for your face, at least.

What is PRP?

PRP stands for “Platelet Rich Plasma.” Plasma is one of the four main things making up everyone’s blood. Platelets are another, along with red and white blood cells. Platelets are what is responsible for the body’s natural healing process, thanks to the fact they contain a ton of proteins called growth factors.

To make sure that the plasma used in this procedure has a high concentration of platelets, a special process is used that separates the red blood cells from the white.

What is the Process?

The process of PRP is simple. The steps are broken down below.

Step 1: Blood will be drawn from the person who is getting microneedling down. It is placed into a tube containing a special separator gel.

Step 2: The vial of blood is placed in a machine called a centrifuge. This spins and blood so the platelets can be separated from one another.

Step 3: The special PRP is now ready to be used, and is extracted from the vial using a small, thin needle.

Step 4: The plasma is delivered into the patient through the Microneedling process. Most often, this is the face.

Benefits of PRP

There are several benefits to choosing PRP microneedling in addition to the benefits of having the procedure done without the plasma delivery. The benefits are as follows:

  • There is little to no risk of having an allergic reaction since the PRP is derived directly from the blood of the person undergoing the procedure.
  • The procedure carries little discomfort.
  • Minimal downtime is necessary.
  • Helps to promote natural collagen production in the skin, which is responsible for the strength, elasticity, and youthfulness of skin.
  • The growth factors found in platelets also helps to stimulate the growth of new blood vessels, which are vital to skin health.

After the Procedure

Most people have little to no discomfort after the procedure, although some have mild swelling and bruising as a result of the microneedling. It is highly recommended that you avoid any public appearances like parties or public speaking events for 24 hours after receiving the procedure, just in case.

Since both microneedling and the complimenting PRP work with your body’s natural healing mechanisms, results are not immediate. Your skin will continue to improve over the course of a few months. During this time, you will notice your skin is firmer, smoother, and more youthful in appearance. If you have stretch marks, acne scars, or uneven skin tone, you should also notice a considerable improvement in these areas also.

For best results, most practitioners recommend three to five procedures with a minimum of four to five weeks between each session.

PRP has many modern uses, from a vampire facial to a specialized breast lift. Recent trials have been seeing how significant the procedure is in the process of minimizing the appearance of stretch marks. Can microneedling with PRP fix stretch marks? The answer is a resounding yes – but also a no. Continue reading to see what we mean.

What Is PRP?

PRP stands for ‘Platelet Rich Plasma.’ It refers to a process where blood is drawn from the person undergoing microneedling and is then separated so the plasma is isolated. The plasma contains high levels of platelets, which are responsible for healing the skin thanks to high levels of growth hormones.

When the PRP is injected into the skin before or after microneedling, it prompts a quicker and more effective healing process. This is key in why microneedling works, which shows why the use of PRP in vampire facials makes them so much more effective.

When PRP Can Fix Stretch Marks

With all this being said you would think that PRP would always be beneficial in fixing stretch marks. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. You can read below about when patients are not good candidates for the procedure.

If stretch marks are recent, however, PRP is a great choice for fixing them. This is because the body is already working towards healing the marks. The introduction to platelet rich plasma helps to make the process both more efficient and quicker.

When PRP is done within about a month of the stretch marks becoming visible, then the effects are that few remain. They will slowly fade over the course of several months, and what stretch marks do remain will be a very light purple or blue reminiscent of veins noticeable beneath the skin.

When It Can Not

If the stretch marks are older than a month old, PRP does not fix them the way most patients would like. Once the stretch marks have begun to fade the body is not actively working to heal them. They will become less noticeable over time, naturally, but the introduction of platelet rich plasma has the opposite effect most patients are looking for.

Instead of getting rid of them or having them fade, PRP can make them appear silvery in color. This contrasts with the skin so that the marks are more noticeable, despite the skin itself being healthier.

Additional Stretch Mark Tips

The best way to treat stretch marks is to stop them from every becoming an issue. The generous use of lotions or shea butter during pregnancy or when you notice the very first signs of marks is the best method.

Ensuring you keep weight gain or loss at a slow, steady pace is also important. This allows the skin time to adapt to the changes.

Finally, it is of the utmost importance that you always maintain proper hydration and a healthy, well-rounded diet rich in necessary nutrients and vitamins.



Starting with the bronze-skinned era of the 1970’s, recent generations have placed great emphasis on golden skin. On one hand, a nice tan could mean you’ve gotten plenty of vitamin D, fresh air, and (hopefully) exercise outdoors. On the other hand, rates of melanoma – the deadliest skin cancer – have tripled in the last three decades.

Current generations may still appreciate sun-kissed skin as much as previous decades, but they are also much more informed about the dangers. Thus, they use sunblock and limit their exposure much more effectively than in the 1970’s – when teenagers laid out soaked in baby oil for hours with a boom box.

Sun Bathing & The Skin Later

While it isn’t always immediate obvious, all that sun-soaking can really do a number on your skin. Sun damage can be anything from excessive wrinkling, perpetual dark spots, or just plain premature aging – if you’re lucky enough to avoid skin cancer and all of its effects.

Although many people are stating this wasn’t known back in the 70’s or even the 80’s, it should have always been common sense. Think about the cliché image of a leathery-skinned old farmer. How do you think he got that way?

The good news, however, is that there is some hope for your skin. There are some procedures which have the ability to reverse at last some of the significant damage to your skin. Foremost among these is Microneedling PRP.

How Microneedling Can Help

Although many are under the assumption this microneedling trend is brand new, it’s really not. In fact, it has its origins deeply rooted in ancient Chinese medicine with the art of acupuncture.

During microneedling a super-thin needle no larger than an average strand of hair punctures the skin 1K times per minute. These miniscule, barely noticeable puncture holes tell your body it has been injured – like when you scrape your elbow or knees riding a bike as a kid. The immune system then reacts by “healing” the area. This results in healthier skin after.

It sounds painful, but most patients state there is only a mild discomfort after and only pressure during. To be on the safe side, most doctors utilize a numbing gel prior to beginning to further minimize any discomfort or pain which may be experienced.

Benefits of Adding PRP

The addition of PRP to the microneedling process is fairly new, and its height to popularity has largely been credited to Kim Kardashian and her Instagram post. Whatever the reason, it has been proven to have considerable additional benefits when combined with the already effective method of microneedling.

PRP stand for “Platelet Rich Plasma.” During this part of the procedure, a patient has a small vial of their blood drawn. Using a special separator gel and a spinning machine, the plasma is separated from the rest of the blood. This plasma, rich in growth hormones, is delivered to the face where microneedling has occurred. Alternatively, it may be placed on the skin prior to microneedling.

It has been shown that using PRP renders microneedling as much a 40% more effective at increasing collagen, and also speeds up the healing process considerably. This ultimately results in two large benefits: (1) less microneedling procedures are needed to obtain maximum results, and (2) less downtime is required after each session.


Scalp micropigmentation is giving hundreds of balding men the confidence they need to face the world again – without a baseball cap, trucker hat, or beanie within their constant reach. The cosmetic hair loss solution began in England and has since made its way to the states, where it has taken the market by storm.

What is Scalp Micropigmentation?

This procedure is a non-invasive treatment option for people who suffer from a variety of hair loss issues. This could include full balding, thinning hair, or a receding hairline. The procedure can be performed on either gender, but professionals state that around eighty percent of patients are men.

The reason men make up the vast number of patients is thanks largely to the fact that two-thirds (or more) of men will suffer from hair loss of some degree by the time they reach age 35, and significantly thinner hair by the age of fifty. Women, on the other hand, do not tend to see balding or thinning hair until they are much more advanced in age.

How Does It Work?

Scalp micropigmentation works by using a special pigment which is injected via a permanent makeup machine which has been equipped with a microneedle. This machine then lightly penetrates the skin to create the illusion of tiny follicles on the scalp. This essentially produces the little dots most people associate with stubble or “five o’clock shadow.”

Primary Benefit

The primary benefit to such a procedure is the appearance of hair, which leads to increased confidence. This confidence is a very big deal. According to psychological research studies, elevated levels of confidence are associated with a higher potential of getting those things you want. This might include a date (or follow up night out), a job, promotion, and many more.

Unlike other forms of hair loss remedies, this one is permanent. That means you can go swimming, work out at the gym, or take that early morning run without fear that anything will slip, drip, sweat off, or otherwise embarrass you.

Secondary Benefits

Although the appearance of natural hair growth and confidence are the primary benefits associated with receiving scalp micropigmentation, there are many secondary benefits which should not be overlooked. These include (but may not be limited to):

  • Decreased levels of stress, anxiety, and depression
  • No more embarrassment or insecurities revolving around appearance
  • No more need to carry or wear a head covering everywhere
  • Look younger
  • No more purchasing expensive (and sometimes untrustworthy) hair regrowth serums

Although some people do not mind being bald – and in fact, embrace it as a lifestyle choice once hair begins to thin – the look is not for everyone. If you feel uncomfortable or lack confidence because of thinning hair or a bald head, it may be worth looking into the procedure. It comes with limited risk at a moderate cost – especially in comparison to other hair loss treatment methods.
