What is PRP Therapy?
Our human blood contains essential proteins that help with tissue regeneration and healing. PRP Therapy has been a widely known process for many different types of wound healing procedures and has worked wonders for hair loss treatments. PRP Therapy for hair restoration is a treatment that requires collecting blood of the patient and then processing that blood so that only platelet-rich plasma remains. The PRP is then injected into the patient’s scalp to stimulate hair growth. This method of hair restoration is non-surgical, making it an ideal solution for many women.
Is it Painful?
The procedure is not painful for the patient. Anesthesia is applied to the scalp area during the injection phase. Once the PRP blood is injected into the scalp, the procedure is complete and the patient can go home immediately afterward. The PRP will begin to stimulate inactive hair follicles to promote new hair growth.
Does it Work?
PRP Therapy for hair restoration has yielded very successful results for most patients. As with many hair growth solutions, the results will vary according to the patient. PRP therapy can also be used in conjunction with other treatments for maximum results if needed. It typically takes 2 to 6 months to start seeing results after your first session. It is suggested that PRP Therapy is performed regularly to see maximum hair growth, at least twice a year, depending on individual results.
