Discovered by orthopedic surgeons who needed a way to get pro athletes back in the game fast, the healing powers of platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can now help Houston area patients with hair loss. Using the patient's own blood, the PRP serum is created by separating the platelets that have concentrated levels of growth factor from the other components of the blood. The prepared PRP serum can then be injected or applied to the scalp to promote natural hair growth for stronger, thicker hair. Cosmetic Surgeon and board-certified Dermatologist Dr. Anthony Nikko offers Eclipse PRP therapy to patients who are in the early stages of thinning hair and minor bald spots, but also to patients after hair restoration surgery. After a SmartGraft hair transplant, Dr. Nikko can use Eclipse PRP therapy to nurture the newly transplanted hair follicles. Schedule a consultation at The Nikko Cosmetic Surgery Center in Houston, TX to learn more about the benefits of Eclipse PRP therapy alone or to boost hair restoration surgery. The Eclipse PRP system separates some of the most useful growth factors, including epidermal, transforming, vascular endothelial, and collagen stimulating.

His staff is always so sweet and helpful in answering the millions of questions I always ask! And Dr. Nikko so personable.

Eclipse PRP therapy can be used in different ways to help patients with hair loss. For patients who have early signs of thinning hair, PRP can be used to stimulate the natural hair growth so the patient can avoid a surgical hair restoration. Eclipse PRP can also be used as a post-hair restoration surgery treatment to aid the recovery of the transplanted follicles. During each patient's consultation, options will be discussed based on the patient's stage of hair loss and aesthetic goals. Eclipse PRP therapy can be a very good option for women who have hair loss caused by hormonal changes after pregnancy or menopause.
Eclipse PRP treatment will start with a small amount of blood being drawn from the patient. The blood is then processed in a machine to separate the platelets with growth factors from the rest of the blood components. Once the PRP serum is prepared, it can be injected into areas of the scalp with thinning hair or bald spots. To increase patient comfort, numbing cream or a local anesthetic is typically applied to the scalp. For best results, patients may need up to 8 treatments, each spaced about 2 weeks apart.
Recovery and Results
Eclipse PRP is a nonsurgical procedure, so patients should be able to leave after their treatment to recover at home or continue with light activity. Every patient will be given a list of post-treatment instructions that will be discussed before the patient leaves. These instructions include how to care for the hair and scalp, what to do, and what not to do. Since Eclipse PRP uses the patient's own blood, there is very little risk of an adverse reaction. Some patients will have temporary bruising and swelling in the treated areas of their scalp for several days. Since the Eclipse PRP treatment stimulates natural hair growth, it can take 2 – 6 months before patients begin to see results.
Patients typically pay between $500 and $5,000 for Eclipse PRP treatments. Eclipse PRP therapy sessions can be purchased individually or in a package for several treatments. Cost estimates as well as payment options will be discussed during each patient's consultation.
