PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for hair restoration is a hair loss treatment that can also treat many other health conditions. It involves drawing and the processing of one’s blood. After processing the blood, the plasma is injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth. Often, medical practitioners combine this therapy with other hair loss treatments for optimal results. The experts at Persona Medical Spa can help determine if this treatment is right for you.
The PRP Therapy Process
PRP Therapy is a 3-step treatment. Using PRP for hair restoration will take anywhere between 60 and 90 minutes. Often, patients need to undergo maintenance treatment every 4 to 6 months.
The first step in developing a PRP preparation is to draw blood from the patient. The second step is to spin the blood sample in a centrifuge to separate platelets from other blood components. After centrifugation, your medical aesthetic provider will extract the platelet-rich plasma and inject it into the areas of thinning hair.
How Does PRP Work?
Laboratory studies have revealed that concentrated PRP can improve hair growth and also reduce inflammation that can cause hair loss.
PRP for hair restoration makes use of the growth factors within the platelets. These growth factors stimulate hair follicle cells, initiating new growth.
Since therapy results differ from patient to patient, our medical aesthetic consultant will consult with you prior to your treatment. You will learn more about the treatment and have the opportunity to discuss your expectations.
How Effective Is PRP for Hair Restoration?
After undergoing PRP therapy, many patients achieve very noticeable results. To some, this treatment surpasses their expectations, and overall, this is one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for inducing hair growth.
Candidates for PRP Treatment
If you do not have a history of scarring Alopecia or Telogen Effluvium (temporary hair loss often caused by stress), you’re one of the best candidates for PRP for hair restoration.
You may need several treatments to achieve the best results. Therefore, as a candidate for PRP, you should be patient and have realistic expectations. Initial treatment sessions include 4 appointments scheduled monthly with maintenance sessions every 6 months.
The Recovery Period
Fortunately, there’s no downtime after treatment. You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after PRP therapy treatment. Unless your provider recommends otherwise, you can use shampoo, conditioner, or shower gel on the treated area 24 hours after your treatment.
