How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?


March 13, 2024

Platelet-rich plasma treatment, or PRP, is a minimally invasive therapeutic treatment used to encourage hair growth. It is among the most advanced methods on the market to facilitate hair growth, with almost nothing else quite like it.

Your own blood is rich in platelets. These platelets contain growth factors that, with the right scientific treatment and application, can be redirected towards your scalp. This treatment can result in natural hair growth without the use of external chemicals.

How Does PRP Work?

The patient has a blood sample extracted first. A centrifuge is then used to separate the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells with the aid of top-of-the-line scientific equipment.

A numbing cream might be applied to your scalp or the area to be treated. Once the cream has taken effect, the PRP is placed into a syringe and injected into the target area.

The PRP stimulates the stem cells at the root of the hair follicles. The growth factors in the PRP work their magic and further improve blood flow into your scalp. Each hair follicle is given the potential to start growing new hair again.

This is a simple treatment with almost no pain whatsoever for most patients. It only takes around 30 minutes to complete.

What Are the Benefits of PRP?

PRP stands out among other hair-regrowth methods for using your body’s own growth factors and redirecting them towards a more desirable area. Hair loss is significantly reduced in most people.

The treatment requires a few months to work its magic. It naturally assists your hair follicles to reach maturation. PRP can improve the thickness of hair and the quantity of hair on the scalp. Wispy patches of hair, with time, become fuller and more luxurious manes.

What Sort of Aftercare Is Necessary?

Most people can immediately return to work after PRP treatment without having to deal with downtime. Tylenol may be recommended post-treatment. A warm shower is recommended in all cases to encourage comfortable blood flow into your scalp, and rest and recuperation help the results along.

PRP works fantastically in conjunction with additional hair-regrowth treatments. We might recommend spironolactone or finasteride to complement your treatment for maximum hair-regrowth potential, along with anti-thinning oral or topical medication. You will need to return once or twice a year for touch-ups and annual maintenance sessions.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP?

Any person who is in good health is qualified for PRP treatments. The best candidates tend to be those with early hair-loss patterns where the follicles are healthy but the early stages of hair thinning and hair loss are occurring.

People who suffer from androgenic alopecia are also ideal for this treatment. Individuals with lupus or thyroid conditions and those taking blood thinners should stay away from this treatment until they recover their health.
