If you are struggling with hair loss, you may have already tried a range of treatments to stop your hair from balding. However, if you haven’t had the results you desire, this may be a good time to try one of the latest and most effective hair restoration treatments now available – platelet-rich-plasma (PRP) therapy.
What is PRP Therapy for hair loss?
PRP therapy for hair loss is a simple, non-surgical procedure that uses platelets taken from the patient’s body to promote hair regrowth. PRP contains a concentration of active growth factors that promote tissue regeneration and healing. PRP therapy is an effective treatment for hair loss in both men and women.
How PRP stops hair from balding
A small amount of the patient’s blood is drawn from the arm, and then spun in a centrifuge at high speed to separate the plasma from the blood cells. The solution containing the plasma and platelets is then injected directly into the areas of the scalp where hair loss has occurred.
When injected into the scalp, the growth factors help to regenerate the hair follicles and promote hair growth.
Is there any downtime
There is minimal to no downtime after PRP therapy, as most patients are able to return to work the next day.
How many treatments will you need?
Doctors typically recommend 3 sessions to get the best results. Sessions are spaced 4-6 weeks apart (learn more).
When will you see results?
The results of PRP therapy for hair loss can be seen within 3 months.
