Thank you for your recent inquiry regarding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy for hair restoration. This exciting new technology has rapidly evolved over the past several years to become the preferred method of hair loss therapy. Platelet rich plasma has a long history in surgery as it has been used to heal the body after surgery. Platelets are the component of blood involved in wound healing and collagen regeneration.
PRP therapy is a simple office procedure with minimal downtime. Dr. Burns uses the Eclipse PRP system which has been proven to deliver the most pure and highest concentration PRP for superior clinical results. In the scalp, this is very important for optimal results. For hair restoration, PRP is injected directly into the scalp in areas of hair loss and is also done in conjunction with microneedling which places extremely small holes in the skin where the PRP can penetrate to the hair follicle base. In addition, PPR can also be placed using a microcannula to limit pain, bruising and swelling. The combination of microneedling with PRP provides a double stimulus for hair regrowth: both from the microneedling hair induction process and from the PRP growth factors. In places where microneedling will not deliver the PRP; microcannula injection can place the PRP without bruising.
Generally, a series of 3 initial treatments are done spaced about one month apart. After 6 months, enough hair follicles have been stimulated to see a good improvement. Hair growth then continues for 12 to 24 month before additional treatments are necessary to maintain the result. Each treatment session takes about 30 minutes and is done using local anesthetic so that patients can drive themselves to and from the appointment. There is minimal swelling, bruising, or pain and a very rapid return to normal activity.

Dr. Burns is also nationally recognized expert in Botox and Facial Fillers achieving the highest levels with Allergan, Galderma, Suneva, and Merz.  Dr. Burns practices a natural technique where volume is added following careful planned facial aesthetic endpoints.  Dr. Burns is President of the prestigious Dallas Plastic Surgery Insitute, the nations largest plastic surgery practice.
