Alternatives to Hair Loss Surgery: Is Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy Right for You?


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has been used for decades to regenerate damaged tissue. Numerous studies have shown that introducing platelet-rich plasma to the scalp can stop hair loss and increase the density of hair.


PRP therapy is a relatively simple procedure that uses platelets from your own blood - which is why the risk is so low. These platelets will help your scalp tissue regenerate and encourage healthy hair growth.



During the appointment:


🩸First, you will have blood drawn from your arm (similar to what you'd experience during a routine blood test). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🩸It takes around 10-15 minutes for the PRP injection to be prepared, which is then injected into your scalp.



After the appointment:


🩸You may experience just some minor sensitivity from this procedure. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🩸Hair loss will decline almost immediately after your appointment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🩸After a few weeks, you should begin to notice hair regrowth. This regrowth will be thicker due to an increase in the blood flow to the follicle. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🩸With continued treatment, patients are able to maintain consistent hair growth.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

🩸Because PRP is a non-surgical procedure, there is no recovery period..
