Achieve a Fuller Head of Hair with PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy harnesses the power of your body’s own platelets to stimulate hair growth. A small amount of your blood is drawn and processed to extract the plasma, which is injected into the areas of the scalp where hair is thinning. PRP contains growth factors that promote hair follicle regeneration, improve hair thickness, and increase the number of hair strands. This safe treatment provides natural-looking results without downtime.

The Science Behind PRP Hair Restoration

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a high concentration of growth factors that can promote tissue regeneration and healing. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors in the PRP stimulate dormant hair follicles, increase blood flow to the scalp, and promote the proliferation of new cells, resulting in thicker, healthier hair growth. Furthermore, growth factors also increase blood flow and nutrient supply to the hair roots, which leads to increased hair thickness and reduced hair shedding.

Your Complete Hair Restoration Experience

Before PRP hair restoration, you should avoid taking blood-thinning medications or supplements, such as aspirin or fish oil. You should also wash your hair thoroughly on the day of the treatment and avoid applying any styling products. Make sure to discuss any concerns with your provider beforehand and follow their specific instructions for preparation.

During your PRP hair restoration session, your provider will draw a small amount of your blood and process it to isolate the platelet-rich plasma. They will inject the PRP into the areas of your scalp where hair is thinning. The procedure typically takes about 45 minutes, and you can return to your daily activities immediately afterward.

Side Effects
PRP hair restoration is a safe and well-tolerated procedure with minimal side effects. You may experience mild swelling, redness, or tenderness at the injection site, but these typically resolve within a day or two. Some patients may also experience temporary hair shedding in the treated area, which is a normal part of the hair growth cycle.

PRP hair restoration requires no downtime, and you can return to normal activities immediately. You may experience mild swelling or redness at the injection site, but this typically resolves within a day or two. You should avoid washing your hair for the first 24 hours after the treatment and follow your provider’s specific post-treatment instructions for optimal results.

You may start to notice an improvement in hair thickness and density within 2-3 months after your treatment. The results continue improving over the following 6-12 months and can last up to 2 years. Regular maintenance treatments can help maintain the results.

The number of PRP sessions you need depends on the severity of your hair loss and your desired results. Most patients require 3-4 initial treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, for optimal results. Follow-up treatments every 6-12 months can help maintain the results.
