PRP Hair Restoration
What is PRP?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.
When are results seen?
The best PRP results for hair loss are often seen after four months after the start of treatment. Many patients require at least two sessions, and the number of treatments and the treatment duration is determined during your consultation.
How long does it take?
The procedure takes about 30 minutes to perform and one may return to work after treatment.
Will it work?
A 2017 study out of Italy also found male patients had increased hair and density in areas where doctors used PRP therapy. Dr. Khetarpal says it takes about three months to see an improvement. After that time, most of her patients – both male and female – have regrown 30% to 40% of the hair they've lost. PRP can have up to a 90% success rate.
Can I do something to increase its benefits?
PRP works well with other hair loss remedies such as minoxidil, medicines and transplant.
