PRP Therapy for Hair Loss:
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration is a very recent non-surgical hair loss treatment alternative to FUE. This technique is recommended for patients suffering from hair loss/thinning, or for patients looking for a follow-up treatment to accentuate their FUE hair transplant result.
The aim of this procedure is to collect plasma containing high concentrations of platelets from the patient’s blood and inject them into areas of hair loss. The platelet rich plasma contains growth factors which will stimulate the hair follicles and trigger hair growth in problem areas.
Continued PRP treatment session are recommended monthly for the first 3 to 4 months and then every 3 to 6 months thereafter for optimal results.
PRP medical treatment can be broken down into 3 steps:
Step 1: blood is drawn from the patient and collected in anticoagulant tubes using standard methods.
Step 2: the tube containing the blood sample is then centrifuged to separate the red blood cells from platelet rich plasma.
Step 3: the platelet rich plasma obtained is then injected into the scalp to stimulate hair growth.
Since PRP is a pain free and risk-free procedure that uses the patient’s own plasma cells, the risk of irritation is very low. Most people can resume their daily normal activities almost immediately after having a PRP injection.
After the first 3 or 4 sessions, drastic decrease in hair loss will be noticeable to the patients. Following this shortly, significant hair regrowth and increased hair lengths will begin to appear. The treatment should continue to maintain hair growth as mentioned previously.
PRP therapy sessions are generally 1 hour long.
The surgeons and technicians will make the final decisions regarding our patient’s candidacy upon consultation, but in general the defining factors include:
Hair loss or thinning:
Men and women suffering from hair loss or hair thinning are considered to be good candidates for this treatment.
Good physical health:
Being in reasonably good health is advisable to prevent the risk of future complications.
