What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) hair restoration is a non-surgical treatment that combats hair loss and promotes hair growth. This innovative procedure involves drawing a small amount of the patient's blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets and growth factors, and injecting the PRP into the scalp. These growth factors stimulate hair follicles, improving their function and promoting the growth of thicker, healthier hair. PRP hair restoration is a safe, natural, and effective solution for those seeking to rejuvenate their hair.

Platelet-Rich Plasma & Growth Factors

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of your blood that contains a mix of platelets and growth factors. These growth factors are essential proteins that are pivotal in tissue repair and regeneration. When used for hair restoration, the platelets and growth factors are extracted from your blood, processed, and injected into the scalp. This helps stimulate dormant hair follicles, promotes blood circulation, and fosters hair growth, making it a natural solution for hair restoration.

How PRP Hair Restoration Works

PRP hair restoration catalyzes the body's natural healing processes. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains growth factors and cytokines that are pivotal in tissue regeneration. During the procedure, a small amount of the patient's blood is drawn and centrifuged to isolate PRP. This PRP is then carefully injected into the scalp, where it stimulates stem cells and promotes angiogenesis, leading to increased blood flow. The activated stem cells, in turn, stimulate hair follicles, leading to hair thickening and regrowth.

Your PRP Hair Restoration Session: What to Expect

During PRP hair restoration, a small amount of blood will be drawn from your arm, just like a regular blood test. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge to extract the platelet-rich plasma (PRP), which is rich in growth factors. Once the PRP is ready, your provider will carefully inject it directly into the areas of your scalp requiring treatment. This process takes less than an hour and is relatively painless. You can resume your daily activities without downtime.

Side Effects, Recovery, and Results

After the treatment, you may experience mild redness or swelling at the injection sites, but these effects typically subside within a day or two. It's essential to follow your healthcare provider's aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. You can generally return to your regular activities immediately after the procedure, as there is no downtime, but strenuous workouts should be avoided for a day or two.

Results from PRP hair restoration may vary among individuals, but many patients begin to notice improvements in hair thickness and texture within a few months. To achieve optimal results, 3 to 6 sessions may be necessary, spaced a few weeks apart. The effects of PRP hair restoration can be long-lasting, often lasting up to a year or more, but occasional maintenance treatments may be recommended to sustain the benefits.
