PRP Hair Restoration for Men
Thinning hair and hair loss in men can often be successfully treated with a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure that utilizes your own stem cells to stimulate regrowth. Dr. Leslie Smith uses an advanced Selphyl® and Platelet Rich Fibrin matrix to stabilize hair loss and boost the new growth of dense, natural looking hair.
Signs of Hair Loss in Men
There are a range of reasons for male hair loss and thinning hair in men, the most common being Androgenic Alopecia, or male pattern baldness. This genetic condition can begin as early as the teen years or early 20’s for some patients and early intervention can reduce the impact on the hairline and overall hair density. Recognizing the common signs of male pattern baldness can help men seek treatment early and help maintain a fuller head of hair.
Common signs of hair loss in men include
- Receding hairline
- Thinning at the crown or back of the head
- Curly hair growing near the ears and nape of the neck
If you notice changes in the thickness or texture of your hair or any of the above-mentioned signs of androgenic alopecia, schedule a consultation with Dr. Smith in our Minneapolis office to evaluate the condition of your hair and discuss the need for treatment.

Hair Restoration FAQ
How many treatments are needed?

Am I a candidate for hair restoration using Selphyl-PRP?
Dr. Smith will meet with you to evaluate the condition of your hair and determine if this type of treatment will meet your needs.

Those with moderately thinning hair or early changes in the hairline will typically experience the best results.

Is PRP hair restoration painful?
Most patients report little to no discomfort during their treatment and return to their normal daily routine immediately afterward.
