Carney Hair Restoration Clinic in Virginia Beach offers several treatments for androgenic alopecia, or male-pattern baldness, including Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) injections. PRP injections offer a quick and simple treatment for regrowing hair in thinning areas, as well as strengthening hair follicles to prevent further hair loss. Depending on the extent of hair loss, a treatment plan utilizing ARTAS hair restoration for men and PRP injections may be recommended.
How Does PRP treatment for male-pattern baldness work?
PRP is derived from the patient’s blood. We withdraw a small amount of blood, then spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood. The plasma is then mixed with a special activator, and injected just above the dermis layer of the scalp, in very small amounts to the entire scalp. The PRP helps repair blood vessels and promote cell growth, acting as a kind of super fertilizer to tired and dying hair follicles. It has been shown to have very good results in the hair growth and thickening.
PRP injection treatment often requires multiple treatments to satisfy a patient’s hair regrowth goals. During your consultation at the Carney Hair Restoration Clinic in Virginia Beach, Dr. Carney will evaluate your hair loss and work with you on a treatment plan to meet your goals.
Enhancing PRP hair regrowth treatment results
Dr. Carney often combines PRP with other non invasive techniques to regrow thinning hair, like LLLT, or Low Level Laser Therapy. Specific frequencies of light can stimulate cellular activity and promote tissue repair and regeneration. The Theradome utilizes LLLT to increase blood flow within and around thinning hair follicles, strengthen them and promote regrowth. Treatments may vary, but generally, the helmet is worn for 20 minutes, two to three times a week in the privacy of your home. These LLLT helmets are available as needed, based on the treatment plan that Dr. Carney prescribes for each individual loss.

To augment your hair restoration treatment, we suggest using Theradome. The Theradome helmet is a laser-based device for regrowing and maintaining a head full of healthy hair. Before hair restoration, Theradome can lay the ground work for a successful treatment by improving cell health. After a treatment, Theradome can reduce inflammation and increase hair retention.
Theradome is easy to use, light weight and cordless, ensuring hair loss treatments never burden your lifestyle. It is recommended that the Theradome device be used twice a week, for just twenty minutes a day – the sooner you begin the sooner you’ll see results!
