How it Works?
What To Expect
The collection of the PRP usually only takes 10-15 minutes. The actual treatment itself often takes as little as 3-5 minutes.
This quick treatment follows a simple, 3-step process:
Step 1: A collection tube is used to draw your blood which is placed into a centrifuge.
Step 2: After 10 minutes, the platelets are concentrated and drawn into a syringe.
Step 3: With a small needle, the platelets are injected strategically into your scalp in the areas where hair is thinning.
Treatment will vary based on your needs. Initially, you may require several treatments spaced one month apart. After the initial treatment, many patients receive treatments 2-3 times per year to maintain the results of hair growth.
Benefits of PRP for Hair Loss
- Increases hair thickness
- Triggers and maintains hair growth
- Controls hair growth cycle
- Decreases hair loss
PRP is a great option alone or as an adjunct treatment post-hair transplant for many patients who suffer the devastating effects of hair loss. PRP is not for all patients. During your consultation you will receive a proper diagnosis of your hair loss and a treatment plan.
Does the Procedure Hurt?
There may be some minor sensitivity not unlike other injections, but it’s over in 3-5 minutes.
Is There Any Recovery Time?
There is no downtime or long recovery process. You may even take a warm shower the evening of the treatment. Avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.
Is This A Cure For Baldness?
PRP is not a cure for baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). The medical condition remains. However, there is great evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and even increase hair density.
