For years, platelet-rich-plasma has been praised for its ability to stimulate the body’s natural healing properties, aiding in cell regrowth and regeneration. Now, the power of PRP can be put to use to revive the appearance of your hair. At New England Center for Hair Restoration, we offer HD-PRP to residents of Boston and the surrounding New England communities. Find out if this procedure could be right for you.
What is HD-PRP?
NE Hair uses platelet-rich plasma, harvested from the patient’s blood to stimulate dormant hair follicles to begin growing hair once again. Platelet cells secrete growth factors to promote cell regeneration when activated. This technology can be used for a host of medical and cosmetic purposes including hair loss, joint pain, and muscular issues. NE Hair recommends high density PRP (HD-PRP) over commonly used preparations.
How Much Does HD-PRP Cost?
The cost of each HD-PRP procedure is calculated on an individual basis. This allows us to tailor treatment to the individual’s specific needs and desired outcome. We will calculate your personalized pricing during your consultation. At that time, we can also discuss your preferred payment method, as well as our convenient financing options with Prosper® and Advance Care Card.
Am I a Good Candidate for HD-PRP?
If you are experiencing hair loss and are seeking a more natural procedure that is minimally-invasive, HD-PRP could be right for you. However, the best way to determine your candidacy for this is to schedule a consultation. This will give us the opportunity to address your concerns and determine the best path forward.
How Does HD-PRP Work?
Use of stem cells and HD-PRP to treat hair loss is the best non-invasive technique to unlock the power of your cells to grow hair. The procedure uses sources readily available in the body to initiate cell interaction and regeneration. It is clear as to why hair restoration using stem cells and PRP is preferable to other methods of hair restoration:
- Known side effects are rare
- Performed using local anesthetic
- No visible scarring after the procedure
- Minimal downtime
- Natural, long-lasting results

What is Recovery Like After HD-PRP?
The beauty of HD-PRP is that it requires minimal recovery and downtime. This means that you can return to your daily routine without delay.
How Long Will My HD-PRP Results Last?
The results of your HD-PRP treatment are designed to be long-lasting. However, as with any procedure, results will vary depending on the individual. Ultimately, the best way to understand how HD-PRP may work for you and your body is to schedule a consultation.
