Platelet Rich Plasma is a viable non-surgical option for those suffering with hair thinning or hair loss. Platelet Rich Plasma is the new standard for restoring hair without going under the knife.
What is PRP Hair Restoration?
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is a type on non-surgical therapy for both men and women suffering from hair loss. The treatment involves drawing blood and processing it until only the protein enriched cells remain. It is the gold standard solution for regrowing hair because Platelet Rich Plasma contains important proteins – growth factors – needed to stimulate natural hair growth. PRP is safe because it’s your own blood. And, it is easily combined with other treatments to maximize hair regrowth. View Natural Look Photo Gallery
How does PRP Hair Restoration work?
PRP Hair Restoration works by separating protein-rich cells from blood. These enriched cells contain cytokines and powerful growth factors that have been proven to stimulate hair regrowth and follicle function. When injected directly into the treatment area, the dormant hair follicles awaken and begin to generate new hair.
How is PRP Hair Restoration Performed?
PRP Hair Restoration begins with a simple blood draw similar to having routine lab work done. The blood is processed in a centrifuge separating the protein-rich cells, Platelet Rich Plasma. At Natural Look Medical Spa, we use the Eclipse Method which is the most advanced to harvest the maximum amount of quality PRP. This is a time where more is better. We use twice the amount of PRP to ensure a rapid response to the treatment site.
We also combine PRP with an additional step to maximize the effectiveness of PRP therapy. After your blood is drawn, a non-surgical erbium laser is used to awaken the follicles and prepare the treatment area for the injections of PRP. The combined therapies results in faster hair regrowth than PRP alone.
When will I start to notice a difference?
Results can vary, but typically visual improvements are seen within 3-4 months.
Who is a good candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?
Both men and women of all skin types are candidates for PRP hair regrowth. The best candidates for hair restoration treatments are those with weak-quality of hair growth and those with patches of alopecia areata. You will be advised during your complimentary consultation if you are a good candidate for PRP Hair Restoration.
How many treatments will I need?
The protocol for PRP Hair Restoration is three treatments to maximize hair regrowth. Each Laser/PRP treatment is done once a month- for 3 months – for a total of 3 treatments. You may notice less hair falling out and within three to four months notice new hairs in areas where hair was thinning. There is really not a cure for hair loss, but reliable methods for slowing hair loss and restoring areas of mild to moderate to thinning are available.
What causes hair thinning and hair loss?
There are several reasons for hair loss. Some may be permanent and other causes may only be temporary. The most common are: thyroid disorders, pregnancy, medications, physical trauma to hair follicles, diet deficiencies, extreme hair care, emotional stress, infections, or genetics.

Are there other treatments for hair loss?
Yes. Surgical hair transplants, wigs, and medications are alternatives to Laser/PRP.
How are results with PRP maintained?
Periodic PRP treatments are the best non-surgical option to maintain results. Even is you have had a hair transplant in the past, PRP will help to ensure you keep the hair already have.
How do you get started?
The best way to get started is to Schedule Your Complimentary Consultation with one of our hair restoration practitioners. They will review the step-by-step process to begin growing hair. Natural Look Medical Spa’s goal is to determine the cause of your loss and relieve the suffering of hair loss.

Natural Look was the first in northeast Florida to launch the Cellfina Treatment for Cellulite in 2016. Congratulations go to Amanda Peacock, ARNP, at Natural Look Medical Spa for being named 2017’s Best Provider of Cellfina for the treatment of cellulite. Natural Look was welcomed into the High Five Club 2018 as a premier provider of Cellfina.
It’s no secret cellulite cannot be dieted or exercised away. If that were true 89% of women wouldn’t be wearing their dimples. Women have been leery of such great results with cellulite treatments because there were not any real long term solutions. In the past, options usually included multiple treatments with a long term commitment to see any results…and, they were temporary. 45 – 60 minute treatment sessions week after week, month after month, and even year after year.
How do I get started to get rid of cellulite once and for all? Continue reading
Snoring disrupts healthy sleep patterns and can keep both you and your partner up at night. Poor sleep quality prevents the body from resting and rejuvenating. This can lead to chronic exhaustion during the day and take a tremendous toll on health and quality of life. The condition of sleep apnea, which always involves snoring, can even be life-threatening. Sleep studies have confirmed that sleep apnea causes breathing to stop during sleep.

Laser Hair Restoration in 8 weeks with
the Fotona Dynamis Pro
Restoring hair growth is nothing new, but HOW we are doing it in this millennium is new. Traditionally, surgical hair transplantation was the only option with small to large grafts of hair follicles transplanted from the donor site – usually the back of the scalp – to the areas of thinning or balding hair. With a cost that can range in the ten’s of thousands of dollars and require multiple transplants, surgical intervention is not always an option – not to mention the downtime and permanent scars.
Laser hair restoration as seen in the photos took weeks, not several months, to see results. Using a customized protocol, the energy from the laser stimulates dormant hair follicles without anesthesia or surgery. The Fotona PS03 handpiece is moved back and forth directly on the scalp several times with a crosshatch pattern. The area will appear red for 24 hours and showering is postponed to the following morning. The treatment area(s) may feel a little tight or swollen, but subsides within a few days and is not noticeable to anyone but the client. Continue reading

Changes in the upper face include heavy eyes, crow’s feet, deep creases between the brows, and fine to heavy horizontal lines across the forehead.
