How does PRP hair restoration work?
During a PRP hair restoration treatment, a small amount of your blood is drawn and processed to extract the PRP. The PRP is then injected into the scalp in areas where hair thinning or hair loss has occurred.
The growth factors present in PRP promote the growth of hair follicles, stimulate the dormant hair follicles, and prolong the active growth phase of the hair cycle. This can result in increased hair thickness, improved hair quality, and a reduction in hair shedding. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the scalp to minimize any discomfort during the injections.
The number of PRP hair restoration sessions required can vary depending on the individual’s specific condition and desired results. Generally, a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart is recommended, followed by maintenance sessions at regular intervals to sustain the benefits.
It’s also worth mentioning that PRP hair restoration may be combined with other hair loss treatments, such as medications (e.g., minoxidil) or hair transplant surgery, to achieve optimal results.
