PRP Therapy for Hair Restoration in Fort Washington, PA


Hair loss is a major concern for many adults, whether it is caused by age, genetics, hormones, poor nutrition, medical conditions, or styling practices and/or products. At Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute, we approach hair restoration from both a medical and cosmetic perspective. We perform a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine the cause of hair loss and then an extensive consultation on each patient’s individualized options. We develop a treatment plan using multiple modalities of hair restoration including injections of platelet-rich plasma.

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a premier nonsurgical treatment for men and women that is showing remarkable results in slowing down, stopping, and even reversing hair loss. PRP has also shown promising outcomes in patients with alopecia areata and thinning eyebrows. Spa 361 at the Dermatology and Skin Cancer Institute is one of only a small handful of dermatology practices to perform this innovative therapy in the Greater Philadelphia area. By combining a powerful solution of growth factors and bioactive proteins, we can help strengthen the growth function of your hair, leading to longer, thicker, healthier locks.

Dr. Aradhna Saxena specializes in Hair Restoration with PRP. Her approach is to combine various oral and topical treatment modalities to obtain a synergistic effect.

Another modality to use in conjunction with PRP is Lower Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT). LLLT is a noninvasive, pain-free treatment that uses low-intensity light to stimulate biochemical changes in cells, helping repair tissue and reduce inflammation. The first FDA-cleared, all-LED hair loss treatment for men and women is the Revian Skin Cap which has been clinically proven to stop hair loss, grow healthy new hair, and improve volume & appearance. REVIAN RED utilizes 620 nm of LED light to stimulate the release of your own natural stores of nitric oxide. Nitric oxide is important to hair growth for many reasons, but it was recently discovered that nitric oxide reduces DHT production by binding to 5-alpha reductase molecule. Revian is also unique in that the cap is linked to an app on your phone that reminds you to use it daily for 10 minutes. Visit Revian for more information.

Any person experiencing hair loss is potentially a good candidate for PRP treatments, but those in the early stages of hair loss tend to respond best. PRP is best used for patients with androgenic alopecia, which is a genetically determined type of hair thinning that commonly occurs along the top of the head. In women, this can sometimes look like a widening part with normal hair thickness at the back of the head. Patients with areas of “weak quality” hair growth on the scalp with still functioning hair follicles usually have the greatest success with PRP hair regrowth treatments.


A minimally invasive procedure, PRP therapy is an approximately 40-minute in-office visit. The process begins with applying a topical anesthetic to your scalp to minimize any pain during the procedure. Then we acquire a small amount of your blood and place it in a special machine that spins the blood at high speed to separate the platelets from the rest of its components. The spinning also concentrates the platelets which are full of growth factors. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma is reintroduced via injection into areas of your scalp that are thinning or balding.  Our protocol for the nonsurgical management of hair loss consists of a boost of four monthly treatments and then maintenance treatments approximately every 3 to 6 months.


There is no downtime following this procedure and virtually no limitations or restrictions. If anything, patients may develop some redness, minimal swelling, and mild tenderness of the treated areas. These symptoms may last up to 48 hours. While results differ for each patient, cosmetic results are most often seen around 4 – 6 months after the first treatment and will continue to improve for up to a full year following treatment. 

We have achieved wonderful results with PRP therapy for hair loss. Almost all patients will notice less hair shedding and increased hair density within the first few months of treatment. Thereafter, we hope to get new terminal hairs by the PRP helping to reverse the miniaturization of hair follicles so they will produce healthier, thicker, longer hair fibers.

We often add combination therapies to get your a synergistic effect. Each treatment plan is customized, so call 215.361.3376 to schedule your consultation today!
