Platelet Rich Plasma HAIR RESTORATION

Platelet Rich Plasma is a state-of-the-art product for both male and female pattern hair loss that has been scientifically verified to help restore hair restoration without the discomfort or downtime associated with invasive procedures.

HOW DOES PLATELET RICH PLASMA FOR HAIR RESTORATION WORK?

With Platelet Rich Plasma for hair restoration, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back to the growth stage.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT DURING MY PLATELET RICH PLASMA TREATMENT FOR HAIR RESTORATION ?

Platelet Rich Plasma is injected into the vascular layer of the scalp causing the hair follicles to become healthier and stronger, producing robust hair growth. A typical treatment takes just over an hour to perform.

WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT AFTER MY PLATELET RICH PLASMA TREATMENT FOR HAIR RESTORATION ?

Patients begin to see thicker, natural hair growing back in areas that have been treated with PRP therapy. Patients will notice that their scalp looks and feels a lot healthier, and otherwise thinning hair slows down. Patients usually require a series of approximately 1-4 treatments approximately 4 weeks apart.  

See post-procedure guidelines.

HOW LONG WILL MY PLATELET RICH PLASMA TREATMENT FOR HAIR RESTORATION LAST?

Platelet Rich Plasma treatment will provide a gradual increase in hair restoration. Follow up appointments should be booked 3 months after the initial treatment series. Patients usually require maintenance treatments 2-3/year.

WHAT ARE THE SIDE EFFECTS OF PLATELET RICH PLASMA TREATMENT FOR HAIR RESTORATION ?

Patients can resume activities immediately. Most common side effects are some tenderness to the scalp following the treatment. Your health care practitioner will review all the rare potential side effects at your complimentary initial consultation.
