What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a restorative treatment that consists of a concentrated level of platelets that work to regenerate and repair damaged hair follicles and stimulate hair regrowth. When used for hair restoration, PRP therapy stimulates circulation in the treated area and brings nutrients to the hair follicles, resulting in healthier, fuller hair.
How many treatments will I need?
In order to achieve the optimal results of PRP therapy for hair restoration, we recommend a series of three to five treatment sessions spaced approximately six to eight weeks apart. Additional maintenance treatment sessions may be required for continued improvement in hair restoration.
Benefits of Using PRP for Hair Restoration
- Strengthens hair follicles
- Little to no downtime
- Promotes new hair growth
When will I see results?
Many patients will see a visible improvement in the thickness of hair in the treated area three to six months after a treatment session. Results of this treatment develop gradually as the growth factors in the PRP regenerate hair follicles at a cellular level. Results may vary from patient to patient depending on the severity of hair loss prior to treatment sessions. Multiple treatment sessions may be required in order to achieve your desired results.
Is there any downtime?
PRP therapy for hair restoration treatments have no downtime associated with them and most patients are able to return to their normal activities immediately after a treatment session. Some patients may experience some mild scalp tenderness for the first few days following a treatment session. Any discomfort can be managed using over-the-counter pain medication and ice packs. Patients should avoid using chemicals or hair dyes for at least 48 hours after a treatment session.
