FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is PRP?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy involves the following steps: First, the blood is drawn in our office. Then, the blood is spun down in a centrifuge, which allows for separation of the components. Afterwards, platelet-rich portion is removed and injected into the scalp. The activated platelets in the PRP release growth factors that stimulate the hair follicles.
What does the PRP treatment do?
PRP helps stimulate natural hair regrowth, decrease hair loss, and increase hair density and thickness.
Am I a good candidate for PRP hair restoration?
If you are in overall good health, have weak hair follicles, and are experiencing small areas of alopecia areata on your scalp, you are an ideal candidate for this treatment.
Patients who are undergoing cortisone therapy, have low blood pressure, or are smokers may not be good candidates for PRP hair restoration.
Additionally, patients with blood disorders may not be ideal candidates for this treatment, particularly if these disorders affect platelet count or the ability to clot properly.
What is the treatment schedule like?
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.
What are the benefits of getting PRP treatment?
PRP is a way that hair growth can be stimulated, which is beneficial for patients who are not good candidates for a hair transplant or for those who cannot afford the downtime of a transplant.
What kinds of results can I expect?
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.
Looking over PRP hair restoration before and after photos is the best way to see how your results may look. 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.
Can both men and women use this treatment?
Yes, this treatment is safe and effective for both men and women.
What kinds of hair loss can be treated with PRP?
The most common form of hair loss treated with PRP is androgenetic alopecia, which is otherwise known as male pattern baldness in men or female pattern hair loss in women.
Will I experience any side effects?
A minority of patients may experience mild soreness and swelling, which should resolve within 24 hours.
How long should I plan on a treatment session lasting?
Each session will take about 30-45 minutes.
How soon after treatment can I go back to my normal routine?
You can immediately resume your normal activities after treatment with no need for recovery time or downtime. However, we ask you to refrain from heavy exercise the day of your treatment.
How much does PRP therapy for hair loss cost?
PRP hair restoration costs between $650 and $1,300 per treatment. The exact price will depend on the details of your treatment.
