Hair Restoration

in Scottsdale, AZ

Hair loss in men and women can be caused by numerous factors, including heredity, genetics, age, hormonal imbalances, and life events (such as pregnancy and stress). Whatever the cause, thinning hair and complete hair loss can cause people to feel self-conscious.

Instead of feeling frustrated about your hair loss, cosmetic options are available to help thicken and regrow your hair. And one of the most successful and transformative hair restoration treatments is PRP (platelet-rich plasma) injections. This nonsurgical treatment effectively increases cell generation in your scalp to help reactivate new hair growth.

At Arizona Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Spies and his team look forward to helping you look and feel your absolute best.

What Are the Benefits of Hair Restoration?

Increased Hair Growth

We tend to think that a full head of hair is indicative of youthfulness, health, and beauty. For patients experiencing hair thinning or loss, hair restoration treatments with PRP injections can help hair regrow to give men and women thick and healthy hair.

Natural Treatment and Results

One of the best aspects of PRP injections for hair restoration is that you can regrow your natural hair, and the method to achieve this is through PRP taken from your own blood. With natural hair restoration, you can expect gradual results with hair growth occurring over time to give you long-lasting improvement.

Improved Confidence

With a head full of natural, thick hair, you can look forward to feeling your best. No longer will you need to feel embarrassed by hair thinning or loss that causes you to cover your hair with hats and other headwear. After your PRP injections, you can find yourself more comfortable and confident in how you look.

What Can Be Achieved With Hair Restoration Treatments?

Improved Hair Growth

Improved Hair Growth

PRP contains growth factors that help stimulate and reawaken dormant hair follicles, allowing for increased hair growth.

Thicker Hair

Thicker Hair

Not only will your hair continue to grow, it will also come in thicker and healthier. This is thanks to the regenerative powers of PRP.

Less Hair Loss

In addition to promoting hair growth, PRP also helps lessen gradual hair loss. For many, this is just as important as additional hair growth.

Hair Restoration Treatment


One of the most important aspects of any plastic surgery procedure or cosmetic treatment is your consultation. At your hair restoration consultation, you will be able to discuss your hair restoration goals, and our specialist will have the chance to evaluate your condition to develop a treatment plan for you.


For your PRP hair restoration treatment, a topical anesthetic, injection of local anesthetic, or Ice will be applied to your scalp in the area(s) where you are experiencing hair thinning. This will ensure that you do not feel any pain or discomfort during your treatment.

Blood Draw

While you wait for the topical anesthesia to work, blood will be drawn from your arm. This blood is placed in a centrifuge, which separates the platelets, plasma, and red blood cells.

PRP Injections

After the PRP is separated from the other blood cells, it is put into a syringe. The platelet-rich plasma is then injected directly into various parts of your scalp. The PRP helps to increase the blood supply to the dormant and/or weakened hair follicles, which helps improve growth factors in the hair follicles.


Recovery Icon Recovery

After your PRP hair restoration treatment, you will likely experience some redness and temporary numbness at the injection site. These side effects will dissipate within a few hours.

Because of the nature of this treatment, no downtime is required. This means that you should be able to return to your normal, daily activities immediately following your treatment session.

Scars Icon Scars

Hair restoration with PRP uses injections to stimulate the follicles. Because no incisions are made, there are no scars following treatment.

Pain Icon Pain

Since a topical anesthesia can be used for PRP injections, your hair restoration treatment is nearly painless.

Cost Icon Cost

As with any cosmetic treatment, hair restoration costs vary from patient to patient and depend on several factors, including the extent of correction needed. At your consultation, you will be given a cost estimate for your procedure.

Hair Restoration FAQs

Am I a candidate for hair restoration?

PRP hair restoration is a minimally invasive, nonsurgical treatment that can help men and women who suffer from thinning hair. At your consultation, our specialist will evaluate your condition to determine that PRP hair restoration can help you.

Ideal candidates are non-smoking men and women with realistic expectations for their results.

How long does PRP hair restoration take to complete?

Though the specific treatment time varies for each patient, PRP hair restoration generally takes 60 to 90 minutes to complete.

Is hair restoration safe?

PRP hair restoration is a safe and FDA-cleared procedure that can help men and women of various ages achieve a fuller, healthier head of hair.

How many treatments will I need?

Most patients need three to four initial PRP treatment sessions (spaced four weeks apart) to achieve optimal results. These initial injection treatments can help to restore a fuller head of hair; however, if follow-up treatments are not performed, the results may fade. The majority of patients can achieve satisfactory results with yearly maintenance treatments.

When will I see my hair restoration results?

PRP hair restoration treatments do not offer immediate results. Instead, you should expect a gradual improvement in the quality of your hair over the next two to three weeks after your treatment. Final results should be apparent after 12 weeks.

Are there any risks associated with hair restoration treatments?

As with any cosmetic procedure, some side effects and complications are associated with PRP hair restoration treatments, including:

  • Pain at the injection site
  • Temporary redness at the injection site
  • Bruising
  • Infection
