Hair Restoration with Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy
Both men and women experience thinning hair—at any age, for various reasons. Whether it would be cosmetic or medical, addressing hair loss can be a challenge for many. The technology behind regenerating hair growth has been limited to invasive surgical options or over-the-counter products that often don’t deliver desired results. Thanks to platelet-rich plasma (PRP) techniques, restoring hair growth can now be done naturally—by using your body’s own growth factors. Hair restoration with PRP can help you regain self-confidence and youthfulness.
At Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, WA, we offer PRP therapy that is currently used in various medical procedures for expedited wound healing, tissue repair, and reconstruction. This same technology can be used to naturally stimulate the growth of hair follicles, resulting in natural hair growth restoration.
How Does PRP for Hair Restoration Work?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair restoration is safe and effective. This FDA-approved treatment can improve hair regrowth and thinness as well as decrease hair loss. Our bodies contain the growth factors necessary to make hair regrow stronger and better. Therefore, PRP injections stimulate hair growth by the proteins and growth factors in the platelets that are drawn from your own body reducing the chances of immune system rejections. The proteins in the platelets will activate the inactivated hair follicles causing hair restoration in the treated areas.
At Concordia Star Medical Spa, our patients take advantage of PRP for hair restoration for the following reasons:
- Increased blood supply to the hair follicles in the treated areas
- Decreased hair loss
- Increased hair thickness or volume
- Minimal to no downtime
- Minimal to no side effects
PRP Hair Restoration and Hair Transplantation
What is the PRP Procedure Like?
Before your treatment, we will conduct a consultation to develop a treatment plan that works best for you. Our experts will assess your needs to deliver optimal results. When you come in for your treatment, a small amount of your blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich plasma. We then combine your own PRP with ACell technology to maximize its growth effects. ACell is an Extracellular Matrix (ECM) tissue-regenerating technology derived from animals and is used extensively in surgical procedures to enhance wound healing. As a “bio-scaffold”, combining ACell technology with PRP therapy produces new and accelerated hair growth to the areas it is applied to.
This treatment is typically administered by injecting the PRP + ACell mixture into the scalp which takes 1 – 2 hours with little to no downtime, depending on the patient and treated areas. The injection is performed solely by master physician injector Dr. Ladie Araña-Domondon.
How Long Does it Take to See Results from PRP?
Depending on the patient and the treatment areas, we recommend our patients receive PRP hair restoration retreatments within 4 – 12 months (depending on the type of baldness) to achieve optimum results. However, your retreatment plan may be different from other patients. Therefore, our experts will guide you in developing a specific plan just for you.
What Are the Side Effects of PRP for Hair Restoration?
The side effects of PRP hair restoration are minimal. You may notice some redness, mild headaches, or pinpoint bleeding after the treatment. These side effects are generally resolved after a few hours to days following the treatment.

"i’ve actually only been here for the hydrafacial (my mom got one too) but our experience was nothing below amazing!! super friendly, helpful staff and along with our facials, we got recommendations for products & overall care. i wasn’t pressured into buying anything at all but im very glad i decided to because i’ve never felt or looked better in my own skin, even a year after i got the facial. i got the pictured face pads as well as the elta MD tinted sunscreen and they’ve made the world of a difference in addition to my typical care routine. they’re on the pricier side of course, but dont be scared to invest in your skin!! i hope to be back for other services and work with the amazing dr domondon, who i’ve met at other events, soon :)"- A.D. / Yelp / Jun 29, 2022
"I have recently been treated by Dr. Domondon and I am very pleased with the results. She is definitely one of the best and I will definitely go back for more!!!🤩"- M.B. / Google / Jun 15, 2022
"Dr. Domondon is the best! I needed to keep my lip filler very natural looking for my job and she perfected that while still giving me the fullness and shape I wanted for my lips. She’s taken the time to build my filler to where I want it without anything drastic. I would recommend her to anyone, beginner or seasoned with cosmetic procedures! I’ve been going to this office for almost a year and I still get excited for every appointment!"- T.W. / Google / May 11, 2022
"I loved my experience here. I am almost 50 and have never had fillers or botox. I researched who to go to in and around the puyallup/tacoma area. Dr. Domondon’s name came up and was highly recommended. I am so glad I came to her!! She answered questions and told me what I would need to achieve the look I wanted. I am so happy. Botox is an absolute game changer! I would have done it years ago had I known the dramatic change it would make. I came back for fillers and my experience was great. The staff is wonderful. ❤️❤️❤️"- B.M. / Google / May 06, 2022
"So happy with my visit today with Dr. Domondon! I've been considering lip fillers for years but apprehensive to looking unnatural. I have a bad case of RBF which has worsened with age and gets frustrating with everyone thinking I'm always mad 😅; my small upper lip and natural assymetrical lip line that sometimes looks like a snarl 🤣, seems to make RBF more pronounced. I explained to her my concerns and she was very kind, patient and professional. She was honest in explaining the anatomy and healing process to maintain authentic expectations. She explained things in detail and worked seamlessly with her nurse. Her competence and experience is very apparent. The whole staff was very kind, professional and knowledgeable. Facility is very clean and well maintained. I am on day 0 s/p treatment and I am very pleased with the initial results! I look forward to future results as things settle with the lip fillers. Highly recommend!!"- B. / Google / Apr 29, 2022
PRP Hair Restoration FAQ
Can PRP hair restoration be combined with other hair treatments?
Yes, it can. To address specific concerns and enhance results, many patients combine PRP hair restoration with other treatments like topical medications, microneedling, laser treatments, and more. During your consultation, we will examine your scalp and listen to your concerns and goals to determine the proper treatment type for your needs. Some may see the best results with PRP therapy alone, while others may need multiple complementary treatments.
How often will I get PRP treatments?
In general, most patients will have a treatment regimen that includes three PRP sessions spaced one month apart. This can be modified according to your degree of hair loss and treatment goals. For more advanced hair loss, more initial treatments are typically recommended, which can be reduced as you start to see results.
Are the PRP injections painful?
No, most patients do not find PRP therapy for hair loss painful. While your PRP serum is being prepared, a topical anesthetic is used on your scalp to help reduce any possible discomfort from the PRP injections. After the injections, the scalp may feel somewhat numb and/or tingly, but this is only temporary, with normal sensation returning quickly.
