Dr. Kumar specializes in the PRP hair loss therapy. PRP therapy is a non-surgical, minimally invasive option for both men and women experiencing thinning hair and hair loss. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy combined with ACell powder, then injected into the scalp, activates stem cells in the scalp tissue. This promotes the body's own tissue-regeneration mechanism that stimulates the growth centers in the hair follicles.
To create platelet-rich plasma, clinicians take a blood sample from the patient and place it into a centrifuge. The centrifuge rapidly spins the sample, separating the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrating them within the plasma.
From there the PRP solution is injected into the target areas and is proven effective in treating pattern baldness, preventing hair loss and promoting new hair growth.
PRP is ideal for patients seeking a natural hair restoration solution. PRP harnesses the restorative benefits to provide you with a natural, fuller and thicker head of hair.

Patients may experience some minor pain, minimal bleeding or redness around the injection sites. Some patients have reported mild headaches or a sensation of tightness of the scalp. These side effects typically resolve within 1-2 days post PRP therapy treatment.
Depending on your hairline and hair density goals, multiple treatment sessions might be suggested. These appointments are generally spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. It is recommended to receive maintenance treatments every 6 to 12 months in order to maintain your results.
Hair loss can have many different causes and making a decision on the best treatment for your specific hair loss experience is Dr. Kumar's goal. Upon contacting our office and scheduling your consultation, you'll be asked a variety of questions to identify your hair loss timeline, desired hair goals and the best process to reach those goals. If PRP Therapy is the right path for you, Dr. Kumar will work with you to schedule the series of appointments and have you on your way to thicker, regenerated hair.
