PRP hair restoration is a treatment that uses components from your blood to enhance hair growth in balding or thinning areas.
While treating your hair loss is entirely optional, many people experiencing hair loss decide to pursue treatment so they can maintain a full head of natural hair. While PRP hair treatment doesn’t work for all types of hair loss, it can be effective for many.
During PRP hair treatment at Self Care LA, Dr. Kothakota washes your hair to remove any bacteria before stamping the PRP into your scalp with microneedles. The product enhances results while microneedling stimulates blood flow to the area to nourish the follicles.
PRP contains parts of your blood that play key roles in your body’s natural healing process, so it helps heal follicles that are damaged and no longer growing hair.
PRP comes from a sample of your own blood, which Dr. Kothakota draws during the initial phase of your appointment. He centrifuges the sample for about 10 minutes, which helps red and white blood cells separate from the platelets.
Blood platelets gather together to help heal bodily damages when you get an injury. They release growth factors, which stimulate reparative processes at the injection site. Plasma is your blood’s liquid base.
Dr. Kothakota or a PA performs a full consultation to assess your hair loss and your goals. He determines a customized treatment plan based on his findings during the consultation, including how much blood he’ll need to use for your sample.

While you receive a customized treatment plan, Dr. Kothakota doesn’t try to encourage you to fill your treatment plan with a bunch of unnecessary additions or procedures. He can help you decide if PRP is your best choice or if you should consider alternatives like stem cell fluid therapy.
