What is PRP for Hair Loss?

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. PRP therapy is a technique that uses the active growth factors in blood plasma to promote hair growth. The result is naturally growing hair in the months following treatment. We recommend PRP for hair loss to any patient who is struggling to find an effective hair loss solution.

PRP for Hair Loss Benefits

PRP for hair loss can be an effective, long-term solution for hair loss. Additional benefits include:

  • No required downtime or recovery
  • Comfortable, non-surgical treatment
  • Safe treatment that is compatible with all patients
  • Effective treatment that can deliver results in as little as three months

How is PRP for Hair Loss Administered?

The first step of treatment is collecting a blood sample. The sample is placed in a centrifuge to produce platelet-rich plasma by separating the platelets from the surrounding blood cells. After this is complete, Dr. Shari Hicks-Graham injects the PRP into the scalp using a very fine needle. The process involves very little discomfort, although an anesthetic can be used if needed. After injection, the treatment is complete. The PRP begins working immediately to stimulate inactive hair follicles, inducing hair growth in thinning or balding areas.

PRP for Hair Loss Recovery

PRP therapy for hair loss requires no downtime. Patients are able to resume normal activities immediately following treatment, including showering and washing hair. However, we recommend that patients avoid hair dyes and other chemicals for a few days following treatment.

When Will I Notice Results?

You can expect to see results within two to three months of treatment. However, it can take as long as a year for the full results of treatment to be visible, as the results gradually improve over the months following treatment. In some cases, patients may need to have multiple PRP therapy treatments to achieve their desired results. These treatments are typically scheduled at least a month apart for optimum results. Since your results improve over time friends and loved ones are less likely to notice a procedure has taken place.
