What is PRP for Hair?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, has many medical applications and has long been used in sports medicine to help the body heal. The blood contains certain growth factors that, when injected into the body, can accelerate healing and provide other benefits. By concentrating these growth factors into PRP, they can be easily injected and aid the body in healing and rejuvenation. When PRP is injected into the scalp, it stimulates hair follicles, triggering growth. This can be used to help enhance hair growth following a hair transplant, or to stimulate hair follicles that have been inactive. PRP can help patients achieve natural hair growth without the invasive techniques involved in other hair restoration treatments.

What is a PRP for Hair Treatment Like?
The first step in a PRP treatment is collecting a sample of blood from the patient. Then, the blood is placed into a centrifuge which removes the red blood cells to develop blood plasma that is rich in platelets. At this point, the PRP is ready for injection. The PRP is injected into various areas of the scalp depending on the patient’s treatment goals and hair loss patterns. The PRP treatment takes about one hour.
What Can I Expect After My PRP for Hair Procedure?
After PRP injections, patients are able to return to normal activities (including showering and shampooing the hair) within a few hours. Some patients experience swelling following their treatment, but this typically fades within a day or two. Patients will begin to notice an improvement in hair growth approximately three to four months after their treatment, with more significant results developing approximately one year after treatment. In some cases, patients will need multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, and annual maintenance treatments may be necessary.
