PRP Hair Treatment in Houston, TX
Balding, thinning hair and hair loss are issues that affect both men and women, damaging self-image and causing a loss of self-confidence. Dr. Christopher Hankins, medical director at Premier Plastic Surgery, offers PRP hair treatments for residents in Houston, Pearland, Lake Jackson and the surrounding areas of South Houston.
What Causes Hair Loss?
For people of all ages, hair loss and balding can be a serious problem, both medically and personally. Hair loss can happen to anyone, and has various causes that are not always genetic. Some reasons for hair loss can include thyroid disease, anemia, chemotherapy, protein deficiency, or low vitamin levels. Other reasons may be more common, such as high stress or body changes in people who are in all stages of life.
The pattern of hair loss is different for the two sexes. Men tend to lose hair in a classic androgenic pattern, which is typically staged by a Norwood chart.
By contrast, androgenic hair loss in women tends to be more diffuse nature and is staged by the Ludwig scale chart. Both types of hair loss can be helped with PRP treatment.

Our goal is to help you feel more comfortable with hair loss and balding by providing an innovative treatment called platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP, for your hair loss. PRP therapy is used for a wide range of medical rejuvenation procedures, from facials to vaginal PRP therapy. Since it is an emerging therapy now being used on patients, not every plastic surgery in the area may offer it, but we do at Premier Plastic Surgery. Since patients have many questions about this exciting new hair therapy treatment, our plastic surgery professionals at Premier put together a list of commonly asked questions and answers for you to refer to:
How Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Work?
The process of platelet-rich plasma therapy is fast and efficient for patients. It requires small amounts of the patient’s blood to be collected, centrifuged, and re-injected into the treatment spots where balding occurs. The growth factors in your own blood contribute to the proliferation of reparative cells, and new hair can be stimulated to grow in the affected areas. It is completely safe, since it is the patient’s own blood. There is minimal pain involved, and numbing treatments can be used for patients who are sensitive to blood being drawn.
PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Results
The results of PRP therapy for hair loss vary slight from person to person. For optimal results multiple treatments are required. Our patients are typically able to see results after the fourth PRP treatment.
