Why I Recommend PRP
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is revolutionizing hair loss treatment and I’m thrilled to be able to offer it to my patients. PRP injections can effectively regrow hair without the need for surgery and produce a very natural look. PRP is created using your body’s own regenerative blood factors, so there is no risk of allergic reaction.

We understand that hair loss, at any age, can be embarrassing and unattractive.

How does a Platelet-Rich-Plasma Treatment for Hair Loss Work?
Your PRP treatment at the Dermatology Institute of Southern California offers solutions that are two-fold: the procedure will stimulate hair regrowth while working to slow down future hair loss. As the name suggests, the procedure works through injections of blood with a particularly high concentration of plasma, injected directly into the patient’s hair follicles.
The platelet-rich blood is drawn from the patient, plasma is separated in a centrifuge, and the injection is then positioned into the various locations around the scalp that are being targeted. The special, micro needle is extremely thin and the great majority of our patients report little to no pain. And, because the blood is drawn from the patient’s own body, the risk of complication or rejection is eliminated.
Results after PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP is an out-patient procedure, which means there is no surgery involved and downtime is minimal. The innovative treatment produces results are reliable and natural in the least invasive way. The procedure can produce great results as a stand-alone treatment, but can also be recommended in conjunction with other hair loss techniques. It is important that patients understand that results can be slow and gradual. Generally, results will begin to transpire after the first two or three months, and will be most noticeable around the six-month mark.
Who is a Candidate for PRP?
Hair loss can occur in both men and women, and this procedure is designed with that in mind. PRP is equally effective as a way to counteract female pattern baldness as it is for our male patients. The best candidates for a PRP treatment are patients who have slight to moderate hair loss, who want to take charge and regain confidence in their look.
During your consultation, Drs. Behroozan and Gutierrez will assess your condition in person and recommend the best course of action for you. We are happy to go over any remaining questions and concerns you may have upon your visit to our Santa Monica or Beverly Hills office.
