Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy

At T3 Hair Preservation in Birmingham, we are pioneering an innovative approach to hair restoration known as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy for our patients from Huntsville, Montgomery, Tuscaloosa, and across Alabama. This therapy has great potential and produces effective results with minimal risks.

How Does PRP Treat Hair Loss?

To start, we use the patient’s blood products that contain platelets and activated growth factors to stimulate the follicles, producing thicker, healthier hair shafts. In a PRP session, the patient’s blood is drawn and processed into PRP.

We utilize advanced technology that allows blood to be separated into highly concentrated PRP. In fact, T3 is the only practice to use the Arteriocyte Magellan® device for PRP, which creates a higher concentration of PRP than devices used by other practices. These factors can be directly injected into the scalp at the follicle level or applied onto the scalp after micro-needling. It is a simple, easy process that takes less than an hour. After washing their hair, patients can return to work the same day. There are no side effects associated with PRP.

Michael S. Beckenstein MD, FACS

Dr. Beckenstein is one of the leading hair preservation and restoration specialists in the South and treats each patient personally. The board-certified plastic surgeon combines exceptional technical skill with a personable demeanor to create a relaxed environment for the men and women concerned about hair loss.

Credentials You Can Trust

This therapy is the ideal option for patients in the early stages of hair loss or thinning. Like laser therapy, it is a great option for women who have more limited choices than men. PRP is additionally a great supplement to hair replacement therapies seeing as it helps grafts regenerate. Laser treatments can be used in tandem with PRP.
