SkinPen with plasma is a great option for treating thinning hair or baldness. Hair restoration using your blood’s own plasma may help people with androgenetic alopecia, which is a common type of hair loss that affects both men and women. It may also help people with alopecia areata, which is an autoimmune condition that causes patchy hair loss. Most of the studies found that injections of plasma reduced hair loss and increased the diameter of hairs and the density of hair growth.
Hair restoration with plasma is a treatment that uses platelets from your own blood that contain growth factors and healing properties to stimulate hair growth in people with hair loss. First, our Medical Assistant, Alex, draws a sample of your blood, which is processed in a centrifuge to separate the platelets from the other blood components. Then, our Medical Aesthetician, Erica, injects the plasma into the scalp, where it can activate the cells in the hair follicles and promote the production of new hair. Hair restoration with SkinPen microneedling and plasma hair restoration is considered a safe and natural treatment, as it uses the person’s own blood and does not involve any chemicals or drugs.
During your follow-up appointment, Erica evaluates your results and discusses any necessary next steps with you.
Hair restoration with plasma is not recommended for patients using blood thinners, are heavy smokers, have a history of alcohol or drug misuse, have acute or chronic infections, cancer, chronic liver disease, chronic skin disease, hemodynamic instability, hypofibrinogenemia, metabolic disorder, platelet dysfunction syndromes, systemic disorder, sepsis, low platelet count, or thyroid disease.
Is Hair Restoration Painful?
Hair restoration with plasma may cause some pain or discomfort during and after the procedure, depending on your pain tolerance and sensitivity.
Some people may experience mild to moderate pain at the injection site, swelling, headache, itching, scalp tenderness, or temporary bleeding. These are normal side effects and usually subside within a few days.
To manage pain, numbing cream is applied before the treatment and patients are advised to take a pain reliver such as acetaminophen following treatment.

How Many Nonsurgical Hair Restoration Treatments Will I Need?
Studies have shown that an improvement in hair growth, thickness, and density can typically be seen within 3-6 months, though some patients notice increased hair thickness following the second treatment. Patience is important, as hair grows in cycles. In most cases, a series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart is required to achieve desired results, but results may vary depending on each individual’s condition, goals, and response to treatment.
For best results, maintenance treatments are required every 4-6 months following your initial series of treatments.
Erica recommends using a gentle, pH-balanced shampoo that does not irritate the scalp or strip the natural oils for the first few days after treatment and a topical minoxidil, a medication that stimulates hair growth, such as a shampoo or foam. Apply gently and massage the scalp lightly to stimulate blood circulation.
An oral finasteride, a medication that can prevent further hair loss, can be taken as directed by your provider.
However, you should consult with your doctor before using any of these products, as they may have side effects or interactions with other medications.
