PRP can be injected into the balding scalp to potentially stimulate thin (miniaturized) hair to grow into thicker (terminal) hairs. Patients with thinning areas are the best candidates.

When PRP hair loss therapy is a useful approach, a qualified physician can begin your treatment at the time of your consultation and continue subsequent treatments at increasing intervals. During the visit six months after your first treatment, your response will be assessed. Follow-up treatments will be given twice a year based on your progress.

The long-term benefits of PRP treatments for hair loss are not yet known. All patients receiving PRP treatments are followed closely to determine effectiveness and if other therapeutic modalities may be needed.

About Schweiger Dermatology Group

Schweiger Dermatology Group was founded to help make excellent dermatology care accessible throughout the Northeast. In 2010, Dr. Eric Schweiger started the practice with a single location in Midtown Manhattan. When he saw the need for high-quality dermatology care that did not require weeks or months of waiting to see a qualified provider, his vision of a multi-location practice was born.
