Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is part of your blood that contains white blood cells and platelets that have specific growth factors to promote tissue regeneration and healing
The growth factors found in our PRP help stimulate the hair follicle to promote hair growth and prolongs the growth cycle.
The best candidates for PRP for hair restoration are people with androgenic alopecia. Androgenic alopecia is when you have thinning on top of the head or widening of the part with normal hair. PRP works the best for people with hair loss less than 3 years.
On average, one treatment a month for 3-4 months is needed initially. If the hair loss in moderate-to-severe, you may need 5-6 treatments initially. After completion of the initial series, you will need maintenance once every 4-6 months.
The results will vary. Some people will notice a decrease in shedding as soon as a few days after the first treatment, others may need more treatments before they see a decrease in shedding. Some people feel that their hair feels thicker and the texture has improved after the second treatment. It is possible that some people will not see any changes for up to 8 months.
It is important to have a consult with a provider regarding PRP for hair restoration. There are some medical conditions and medications that you may cause the PRP not to be as effective. It is important to make sure you have a consult on this procedure before proceeding with the treatment.
