Frequently Asked Questions
PRP therapy for hair loss is initially performed as a series of three treatments, spaced 4 weeks apart. After completing the initial series, maintenance is recommended with one treatment every 6-12 months.
Results from PRP therapy vary and are typically seen within six months of the first treatment. The best outcomes are seen on patients who have hair thinning, but not completely bald spots on their head. It is important to understand that results will vary and there is never a guarantee of success.
A multi-therapy regimen for optimal results may also include topical and oral medications as well as nutritional supplements.
Each session will take about 30-45 minutes.
