PRP Hair Restoration In Honolulu, HI


PRP Hair Restoration


Whether it be caused by aging or genetics, many men and women suffer from hair loss. Of course, some people are not bothered by their new look, many are not quite ready to let go of their locks. Dr. Larry Schlesinger and his team at Breast Implant Center of Hawaii are here to help you regain your mane with a very natural, non-surgical procedure. Hair Restoration with PRP can help you turn back the clocks. We’ve included more information about the treatment below for your edification.

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a natural serum derived directly from your cells to initiate regeneration. When performed with hair restoration, the treatment will renew blood supply and proper nutrients in run-down hair follicles, which stimulates the hair growth process and helps fill in problematic areas of receding or thinning hair. Injections of PRP allow us to obtain a deeper penetration of PRP into the scalp thereby amplifying hair restoration capabilities.

On average, most patients require a series of three treatments every six weeks to achieve optimal results, followed by a maintenance treatment every six months to receive desired results.

In addition to the growth factors that Platelet-rich plasma can provide for hair restoration, there are other anti-aging benefits as well, which include:

  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF): promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2): promotes the growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation
  • Insulin-Like Growth Factor – (IGF): a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
  • Keratinocyte Growth Factor (KGF): an important endogenous mediator of hair follicle growth, development, and differentiation
  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF): promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation
  • Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b): promotes the growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF): promotes blood vessel formation

First Steps

What’s the First Step?


If you’re interested in getting a fuller head of hair in Hawaii, the first step is to schedule a PRP Hair Restoration consultation. During your appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to meet with Dr. Schlesinger and discuss your goals for the treatment. He will evaluate your hair and ask you some medical questions to ensure that you’re a good candidate for the procedure and that you’ll have a successful treatment and recovery.

Once Dr. Schlesinger has collected all the necessary information, he will create a customized procedure plan for you. If you’re happy with the program and would like to move forward with it, our Patient Coordinator will help you schedule your treatment date.


What to Expect on the Day of PRP Hair Restoration

On the day of your PRP Hair Restoration, we will first make sure that you are comfortable throughout your treatment. Most patients find that they can tolerate the hair growth injections without the need for a topical numbing cream, but if you prefer to use some, we are more than happy to oblige.

Your treatment will begin with your blood being drawn and placed into a centrifuge. Once the PRP is separated, it will be collected and placed into a syringe. Dr. Schlesinger will meticulously place the injections across your scalp, spacing them approximately half an inch apart in areas of thinning or receding hair.

The entire process takes around 30 minutes but can take a little longer depending on the amount of work required.

PRP Hair Restoration Recovery

After you are finished with your first session, you will be able to go home to recover comfortably. While the recovery period involved with PRP Hair Restoration isn’t much, you may still be a little sore from the treatment. You will be able to shower and wash your hair as soon as getting home, however, if you experience any pain or discomfort, do NOT apply an ice pack to your scalp as the cold can inhibit PRP activity. If you are experiencing any soreness, you may take over-the-counter pain medication as directed.

During the first few hours after your session, your scalp will be a little pink or red in the treatment area. You should also wait one or two days before returning to your usual hair maintenance, such as blow drying, coloring, curling, etc.

We insist on encouraging our patients to follow any post-procedure instructions we provide as this initial recovery period is vital in restoring hair thickness and volume.

What is the cost?

How Much Does PRP Hair Restoration Cost in Hawaii?

The cost of PRP Hair Restoration in Hawaii will depend on several factors. These factors are based on how much treatment is needed and how you respond to the restoration process. The best way to find out the price for your restoration is to come in for a consultation and get an evaluation by Dr. Schlesinger.

Once he understands what you will require to get a full head of hair again, he will create your procedure plan and our Patient Coordinator can use that information to provide you with a pricing sheet that will break down everything for your treatment.
