What to expect from a PRP therapy for hair loss or thinning
Most patients require three treatments that are spaced 4-6 weeks apart. The Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) is drawn up into a syringe and injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth. The injections are given over about three minutes and there are about 13 of them. The process can be quite painful because the scalp is very sensitive to injections because it has a lot of blood vessels and nerves.
How is PRP for hair restoration different from other forms of hair procedures?
The only other hair restoration procedure is hair transplantation via methods like punch-grafting, micro-grafting, or slit-grafting. This is a surgical procedure that removes hair-bearing skin from the back of the scalp and creates grafts to attach to the balding areas. It requires local anesthetic and takes anywhere from four to eight hours with a recovery time of a few days. Other options for hair loss are medications such as Rogaine and Propecia. Rogaine is only 10 to 14% effective and Propecia must be continuously taken to maintain results.
