PRP Hair Restoration is a groundbreaking treatment that harnesses the natural healing properties of your blood to stimulate hair growth. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is extracted from the patient’s blood and then injected into the scalp or combined with microneedling to promote hair growth. This procedure is particularly effective for thinning hair and bald spots, offering a non-surgical solution for those looking to restore their hair’s natural density and fullness. Suitable for both men and women, results typically become noticeable within a few months, with the full effect visible after several sessions. The longevity of the results can vary, but many patients experience benefits for up to a year or more.
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a concentrated portion of your blood containing many platelets. These platelets are rich in growth factors crucial in healing and regeneration.
PRP shots refer to the direct injection of Platelet-Rich Plasma into the scalp to boost hair growth by rejuvenating the hair follicles.
PRP with microneedling involves using tiny needles to create micro-injuries on the scalp, followed by the application of PRP. This combination enhances the absorption of PRP, further boosting its effectiveness in promoting hair growth.
Individuals experiencing hair thinning, early stages of hair loss, or those with certain alopecia conditions are typically good candidates for PRP Hair Restoration. However, a consultation with a specialist is recommended to determine suitability.
Most patients notice improvements within a few months of their initial treatment. However, multiple sessions might be required to achieve optimal results.
The duration of results can vary, but many patients experience the benefits of the treatment for up to a year or more. It is possible to prolong the effects with regular maintenance treatments.
There’s minimal downtime associated with PRP Hair Restoration. Some patients might experience mild swelling, redness, or bruising near the injection sites, but they subside within a few days.
Before the treatment, it’s advisable to avoid excessive sun exposure and refrain from taking certain medications like blood thinners. Post-treatment, patients should avoid washing the treated area for at least 24 hours and protect the scalp from direct sunlight.
The treatment begins with drawing a small amount of blood, which is then processed to extract the PRP. Depending on the chosen method, PRP is either injected directly into the scalp or applied post-microneedling. The procedure is relatively painless, with some patients experiencing only a mild sensation or discomfort.
