Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a proactive treatment option for male and female patients experiencing thinning hair or hair loss. It’s an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for hair loss sufferers who require stimulation of hair growth.
How PRP Works And What To Expect During The Procedure
Blood is drawn from a patient and is then spun in a centrifuge, separating the plasma from the rest of the patient’s blood. Following this, the PRP is then injected into the treatment areas of a patient’s scalp. His or her hair is washed prior to returning home. The entire process takes approximately 80 minutes to perform
What to Expect Following Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Treatment
Fortunately, recovery from PRP treatment is simple and minimal. Some patients may experience mild soreness and swelling of the scalp may be pronounced for up to 6 hours after PRP treatment, though these symptoms generally resolve completely after two days. Patients should refrain from vigorous physical activity until swelling has completely abated.
Who Is An Ideal Candidate for Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?
This unique treatment option is well suited for patients who are experiencing mild thinning and want to restore affected areas with fuller, thicker hair. Good candidates for platelet rich plasma (PRP) are men and women who have experienced natural hair thinning or hair loss.
Ideally, the treatment is suited for people who are healthy overall and have realistic expectations about the nature of treatment and what can be achieved.
It’s essential that patients understand all of the risks and benefits associated with the procedure.
Poor candidates for the procedure include heavy smokers, drug users, and people with a history of alcohol abuse. People who suffer from systemic conditions that affect the blood and skin are also poor candidates for the procedure.
To maximize the results of PRP, a laser hair therapy (LLLT) program is recommended.
