PRP for hair loss can restore a fuller, thicker head of hair. PRP results have proven to be effective in both men and women suffering hair loss. This advanced hair restoration technique uses a patient’s own blood to effectively prevent hair loss, and stimulate new hair growth.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a highly concentrated blood plasma that contains growth factors and other bioactive proteins that are known for facilitating wound and tissue healing. Research suggests that this process may serve as a safe and effective treatment option for male and female pattern hair loss. Patients benefit from this treatment by experiencing a considerable slowdown in hair loss to no further hair loss, and 50 % of patients can see their existing follicles regrow thicker, stronger and faster.
PRP treatments are safe for most people as it involves an autologous substance made from your own blood.
- Treatment Length: 60 minutes. 3 to 4 treatment sessions are recommended spaced 4 weeks apart.
- Downtime: You can resume normal activities immediately post-treatment. We recommend taking a warm shower to stimulate your scalp and circulation 12 to 24 hours post-procedure. Avoid harsh chemicals and dyes for at least a week. Bruising is a possibility but will resolve naturally.
- Results last: Studies have shown a significant increase in the rate of hair growth between 3-6 months. Yearly follow-up treatments are recommended as PRP unfortunately will not cure baldness.
