PRP therapy is a medical procedure that involves drawing your blood, processing it in a centrifuge to extract protein-rich platelets, and then injecting this plasma serum into the area where hair restoration is desired. The natural growth factors in the plasma trigger new hair growth and nourish the hair by increasing circulation to the hair follicle.
If you’re interested in natural, non-surgical hair regrowth, it’s likely you’re a good candidate for PRP therapy. If you have severe anemia, low platelet count, active cancer or certain medical conditions, you may need to consider another option such as a hair transplant.
Hair loss treatments with PRP offer the following benefits:
The team of experienced providers at Eternal Hair and Esthetics often recommend PRP therapy as a follow up to a hair transplant procedure, for optimal hair restoration.
Your provider first draws your blood, usually from your arm, and you’ll wait about 15-20 minutes while the blood is processed in the centrifuge. When the serum is ready, you’ll receive a topical numbing cream, and/or a local anesthetic. Your provider will then inject the plasma into the target area.
Eternal Hair and Esthetics uses an FDA-approved closed sterile system during your PRP procedure, so there is minimal risk involved in the procedure. The process typically takes about 45 minutes to complete, and there’s no downtime following treatment.
The number of recommended treatment sessions varies depending on a variety of individual factors, including the area being treated. In most cases, 3-6 sessions spaced 4-6 weeks apart are recommended. PRP therapy should be repeated yearly for best results. Your provider may also recommend maintenance treatments a few times a year.
New hair regrowth is gradual, so it can take up to six weeks for results to be visible. Within about eight weeks of treatment, you’ll be enjoying thick, healthy hair in the target areas.
