What Is The Treatment Like?
During a PRP procedure, your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelets and plasma. The plasma is then combined to growth-activating serums and injected into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. This helps repair blood vessels, promotes cell growth and stimulates collagen production. Patients usually receive injections monthly for three months, then have follow-up treatments every three or four months for two years. The injection schedule will depend on your specific needs. Most patients see decreased hair shedding, followed by regrowth and increased hair length.
Following the treatment, ice packs and Tylenol may be used to minimize pain. Bruising and redness can occur but usually resolves within a week or two. Because PRP uses your own platelets, there is little to no risk of a negative reaction or infection.
