FIGHT HAIR LOSS
Learn how platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can help you
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses the patient’s own blood to promote hair growth and reduce scarring from hair transplant surgery. The treatment involves drawing a small amount of blood from the patient and then processing it to concentrate the platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial substances found in the blood.
The scalp PRP treatment involves injecting the concentrated PRP directly into the patient’s scalp, where it can stimulate hair follicles and promote new hair growth. This can be an effective treatment for both men and women who are experiencing hair loss or thinning.
In addition to promoting hair growth, scalp PRP can also be used to smooth out the scars left behind by hair transplant surgery. By injecting the PRP into the scar tissue, the growth factors and other substances can help to regenerate the damaged tissue and improve the appearance of the scar.
Scalp PRP treatments typically require multiple sessions to achieve the best results, and the exact number of sessions required will depend on the individual patient’s needs and goals. Most patients begin to see results within a few months of starting treatment, and the results can last for up to a year or more.
It’s important to note that scalp PRP therapy is not a guaranteed solution for hair loss or scarring, and results can vary from person to person. However, it can be a safe and effective option for many patients who are looking for a non-surgical way to promote hair growth and improve the appearance of their scalp

How does PRP therapy work for hair growth and scar reduction?
PRP therapy uses the patient’s own blood to concentrate growth factors and other beneficial substances, which are then injected into the scalp or scar tissue. This can help to promote hair growth and regenerate damaged tissue, reducing the appearance of scars.
Is PRP therapy painful?
Most patients find the procedure to be relatively painless. A local anesthetic may be used to numb the area before the injections are administered.
How many treatments are required?
The number of treatments required will depend on the individual patient’s needs and goals. Typically, several treatments are required to achieve the best results. Most patients see improvement after 3-4 treatments, with maintenance treatments needed every 6-12 months.
Are there any side effects or risks associated with PRP therapy?
PRP therapy is generally considered safe, with few side effects. Some patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, or discomfort at the injection site. In rare cases, infection or allergic reaction can occur.
Is PRP therapy effective for everyone?
PRP therapy is most effective for patients with mild to moderate hair loss or scarring. It may not be effective for those with advanced hair loss or extensive scarring. It’s important to discuss your expectations and goals with your healthcare provider before starting PRP therapy.
How long does it take to see results?
Most patients begin to see improvement within a few months of starting treatment, with continued improvement over time. The results can last for up to a year or more.
How does PRP therapy compare to other hair restoration treatments?
PRP therapy is a non-surgical treatment that uses the patient’s own blood to promote hair growth, while other treatments such as hair transplant surgery or topical medications may be more invasive or require ongoing use. PRP therapy may be a good option for patients who are not candidates for other treatments or who are looking for a non-surgical alternative.
