How does PRP for hair loss work?
In PRP, a trained technician uses your own blood and spins it using centrifugal force to separate the components of the blood: the white blood cells, red blood cells, platelets and plasma. Separation of the blood takes from eight to 10 minutes. Once the components are separated, the plasma or liquid of the blood and the platelets are combined. Plasma contains hundreds of various proteins that specifically promote healing. PRP can be used in many applications related to the skin, hair and overall health.
For hair regrowth, the trained technician injects the PRP directly into the scalp.
How many treatments do I need?
Our PRP specialist will start with three treatments and then assess how your hair responds. Even when you complete all 3 treatments, you will continue to see the benefits for months afterward as the PRP works with your body to stimulate collagen. Patient’s should follow-up with a treatment about once a year.
How long does a typical treatment take?
Each treatment session will typically take an hour and a half. We take before photos of the hair loss area to be treated. Numbing cream is applied and while the cream is activating we draw a very small amount of blood to begin separation of the components of your blood.
How will it feel after PRP hair regrowth treatments?
PRP is injected into the affected site. Patients will likely experience redness, a sensation of warmth, and mild to moderate swelling at the treatment area and in treating hair regrowth, PRP can make the scalp feel a sensation like tightness. However, these sensations show that the platelets are working and are typically common. Swelling always occurs after the injection of the fluid into the skin. The increased healing cells in PRP aid in the body’s recovery process.
Results of PRP Hair Treatment
Many participants report that they observed increased hair growth, and they were happy with the effectiveness of the treatment. They noticed fuller and thicker hair after the treatments. Collagen takes as long as three months to produce, which means that you might notice improvements for weeks after treatment.
Results will vary, depending on several factors. If you have been ill, suffering with stress or if you smoke, collagen production might take longer.
