How Does PRP® Hair Regrowth Work?
The PRP® Hair Regrowth treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete. First, a blood sample is obtained which is specially processed to produce the PRP. A local anesthetic is then administered to completely numb the scalp treatment area. The PRP is then administered via a series of injections over the full scalp or in a localized treatment area such as the eyebrows or beard.
The recovery from the procedure is typically uneventful. *Pain is easily managed in most cases with non-narcotic pain relievers such as Ibuprofen. Some mild swelling of the forehead is occasionally seen one to two days after injections. This is normal and will typically resolve in 48 hours. Avoiding vigorous activity is recommended until the swelling is gone. There is no other downtime or noticeable effects of the procedure. Patients can wash their hair normally immediately after the injections.
*New hair growth can be seen as early as two months, but is typically *evident between four to eight months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment. To date, results have been maintained without additional injections for up two years in many patients, but no long-term data is yet available to conclude that this hair growth is permanent.
The PRP Hair Regrowth Treatment is a new procedure utilizing your body’s own blood to foster hair regrowth and thicken your existing hair follicles. This is a promising advancement for millions of people with thinning hair!
No surgery, drugs or expensive treatments are needed for this research-proven therapy. PRP relies on the patient’s own platelets. The patient’s own blood is put into a special centrifuge and the plasma is separated then injected directly into the patient’s scalp. Growth factors are found within the platelets and hair growth is stimulated, as well as thickening of the hair follicles. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.
