PRP therapy uses your own blood to aid in the recovery process, address hair loss, and result in healthier hair. Using natural growth factors, PRP has been shown to make hair stronger while encouraging new growth at the same time. This non-surgical treatment can be completed right in the office within about an hour. The procedure typically takes three treatments, once per month. This may sound great to you, but you may also wonder: how much does PRP cost?
Unfortunately, PRP for hair loss is not typically covered by insurance as they consider the treatment to be aesthetic in nature. We understand this is a concern for many of our patients. Thankfully we offer many flexible payments and financing options for our treatments and services to make them affordable for anyone.
There are many factors that will affect how much PRP costs and your PRP treatment. It’s important to note that not all PRP therapy is the same, and the differences in protocols can affect the results. While PRP therapy has become quite popular and offered by a variety of practices and med spas, we were one of the first medical practices to really specialize in PRP for the treatment of female hair loss. Because we don’t know how those practices are performing the PRP therapy, we can’t compare our treatments to theirs. However, we do know that our protocols are based on extensive research and the experience that comes with completing thousands of PRP treatments.
Here at Medi Tresse, a special PRP kit is used that separates the plasma portion from the blood. We believe our kits are the best in the industry, giving us the highest possible concentration and preparation of PRP.
We are the female hair loss experts, and we know that PRP therapy should only be given to patients who are the best candidates for success. It’s not the best treatment option for all types of hair loss, which is why our knowledge and experience in this matter is unparalleled. Because we only recommend PRP therapy to patients we believe will see results, you know you can trust our recommendations.
With that in mind, there are five main factors that will determine your price tag for PRP for hair loss as you navigate which providers to choose.
Many practices opt for the utilization of only a test tube in the preparation of Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) due to its cost-effectiveness; however, this method may not yield optimal results. Medi Tresse utilizes FDA-cleared test kits, which, while incurring a higher cost, deliver superior outcomes.
At Medi Tresse, a rigorous evaluation process involving the assessment of various leading FDA-cleared PRP kits using a platelet counter was conducted to choose the kits that exhibited top efficiency and consistency.
Studies have shown that the optimal platelet concentration for PRP needed for hair restoration is around 1.5 billion platelets per ML. Test tubes and smaller kits may be less expensive, but do not collect enough blood to generate sufficient PRP at the optimal platelet concentration recommended for hair loss.
Everyone's platelet count is unique. This means reaching the optimal platelet concentration for a patient can only occur if the baseline platelet count is known. In order to better ensure the patient is getting the optimal concentration with their treatment, we utilize a platelet counter. This allows us to customize the treatment to the specific patient.
We have performed more than 7,000 treatments across all of our locations, making us the trusted local experts in PRP. We use protocols and processes for treating female hair loss developed by Dr. Mary Wendel. A practicing physician for more than 35 years, she was listed among Boston Magazine’s Top Doctors in 2021.
While any medical practice can provide PRP therapy, only a hair loss specialist can ensure that it is the best treatment option.We have enough experience and industry knowledge to understand that while PRP is a great treatment option, it’s not meant for all types of hair loss. We make sure you are an ideal candidate for PRP before recommending it. We want all our patients to have the best shot at successful results as possible.
