PRP Therapy

Want Thick, Full Hair?

PRP Therapy at Knox Dermatology

The Knox Dermatology team is among Dallas-Fort Worth’s most established providers of platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) for hair loss. Dr. Wooming was one of the first physicians in the DFW Metroplex to offer PRP, which is among the newest–and highly promising–treatments shown to regrow hair on the scalp with no more than a series of injections. And unlike other therapies, PRP hair restoration therapy is a non-surgical alternative that can safely treat both men and women with pattern hair loss.

The procedure is done using a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp. The injection then:

  • Releases growth factors and produces new blood vessels
  • Increases blood supply to the follicle
  • Increases hair shaft size (thickness) and health
  • Triggers and maintains the hair growth phase
  • Controls the hair growth cycle
  • Decreases hair loss


A growing number of clinical studies show the effectiveness of PRP in addressing certain types of alopecia, or patterned hair loss. It is not a surgical procedure. It is a simple, three-step process that has been featured on programs such as ABC’s Good Morning America.

  • A blood draw is taken from your arm. Your blood contains platelets that help repair blood vessels that are damaged, and we now know can also help stimulate hair growth.
  • To get these platelets in a high concentration, your blood is placed in a machine called a centrifuge that spins rapidly, separating out the platelets from much of the other material that makes up your blood.
  • The platelet rich plasma is injected just underneath the scalp to stimulate the regrowth of your own hair.

The right results

As one of the first physicians to offer PRP in Dallas-Fort Worth, Dr. Wooming has used PRP to help men with thinning or patterned hair loss regain their confidence, and women who have fine or thinning hair achieve the thicker, fuller locks they always wanted.

Before beginning PRP, you will meet with Dr. Wooming to discuss your goals and whether PRP therapy is right for you based on your type of hair loss. PRP is not for all types of hair loss, which is why it is important to have a highly experienced dermatologist like Dr. Wooming determine if it is the right approach for you.

Once the platelet rich plasma is harvested from your blood, Dr. Wooming will apply a numbing solution to the area of your scalp where the injections will be administered to minimize or eliminate any discomfort.

You will receive these injections over four sessions, spaced one month a part.

To maintain results, plan to receive a follow-up injection session once every six months or so, and you may also combine PRP with medications or creams that help sustain the improvement.

It typically takes three to four months to start seeing noticeable results, but patients are pleased to look in the mirror to see their hair coming back!


Better than transplantation

Hair transplantation is an expensive, drawn-out process that involves surgery and can be disruptive to patients’ lives. For many patients, PRP is an ideal alternative because it is fast, easy, and less expensive while allowing patients to achieve the same results.

How many treatments are required?

Treatment will vary based on your needs. Initially, your provider may recommend several treatments spaced one month apart. After the treatment, many physicians suggest maintenance treatments two to three times per year.

How does PRP work?

Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

Doctors have now discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jump starting dormant hair back into the growth stage.

  • Step 1
    • A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
  • Step 2
    • The concentrated platelets are drawn up into a syringe.
  • Step 3
    • Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.

Is PRP time consuming?

No, collecting the PRP usually only takes 10-15 minutes, And the PRP treatment itself is even faster.

Does the procedure hurt?

There may be some sensitivity. However, we utilize effective anesthetic solutions to minimize any potential discomfort.  

Is there any recovery time?

There is no downtime or a long recovery process. You may take a warm shower the evening of the treatment. In addition, it is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.

Is this a cure for baldness?

PRP is not a cure for baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). The genetic medical problem will always remain. However, there is great evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and even works to increase hair density.
