PRP for Hair Restoration
At our practice in Lafayette, Louisiana, we see both women and men seeking hair restoration for thinning hair and baldness. There is no shortage of products and treatments available that promise to restore thick, full hair, but few deliver real results. Dr. J. Kevin Duplechain is committed to offering treatments that have proven themselves to be effective and safe, such as NeoGraft® and platelet-rich plasma therapy, or PRP. In addition to creating measurable results, PRP doesn’t require any downtime or special lifestyle changes.
Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an innovative technology that’s been widely used in other fields of medicine for years. For example, orthopedists often use platelet-rich plasma to speed and enhance healing after certain types of injuries.
Your blood is made up of a number of components, including platelets. Platelets contain growth factors which nourish your body’s tissues and aid in the healing and regenerative process. When these platelets are isolated and applied directly to your scalp, they can help stimulate re-growth in your hair follicles. PRP can be performed on its own or as an adjunct to the NeoGraft procedure.

PRP therapy is a nonsurgical, outpatient procedure performed right here in our Lafayette office. The treatment begins with a simple blood draw, similar to what you’d experience for a cholesterol test or other lab work. Dr. Duplechain processes the blood in a special device that separates the platelets from other components. Once the platelets have been isolated, Dr. Duplechain gently injects them into your scalp, where they immediately go to work nourishing and fortifying your hair follicles, and stimulating regrowth.
Each injection feels like a brief pinch, and your entire appointment is complete in less than an hour. It is perfectly safe to get right back to your regular activities after treatment.
We recommend a series of treatments, spaced several months apart, for maximum regrowth.Back to Top
