WHAT TO EXPECT
What is PRP Hair Loss Therapy?
PRP hair loss therapy Commonly known as the Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy; it involves use of a serum that is extracted from your own blood. It is loaded with growth factors that helps miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier again, resulting in healthier, thicker hair.
Who is PRP Hair Loss Therapy good for?
PRP is a fantastic innovative treatment especially good for clients that
**Have hair loss relatively recently. PRP does not work as well on hair follicles that have been dormant for many years, clients with this issue may need multiple treatments or more invasive treatment.
**Have hair thinning or wispy hair. Clients with these hair types cannot only see hair regrowth but in some cases better conditioned hair.
**Have hair loss due to stress or illness. PRP is noted for containing a lot of healing factors, if hair loss is from stress or sudden illness PRP can help and again in some cases improve the condition of the hair.
What happens during the PRP treatment?
A trained member of staff will draw blood from your arm and spin it in a centrifuge to separate it into in three layers: platelet-poor plasma, platelet-rich plasma, and red blood cells. The platelet-rich plasma is singled out for use in your treatment. Meanwhile your scalp is numbed before the platelet-rice-plasma is carefully injected into your skin, so the fluid is applied exactly at the level of the hair follicles. For some treatments, the doctor may use a micro needling device to make tiny punctures in your scalp and then spread the PRP onto the area.
When will I see results from the treatment?
Look for results between three and six months after treatment. However, keep in mind that many factors can affect when results appear and how pronounced they are. These factors include your sex, age, hormonal balance, blood flow, and more.
When will I see results?
PRP requires ongoing treatment. PRP for hair loss is not a ‘once and done’ procedure as it requires ongoing maintenance for lasting results. We recommend a course of three with 6 monthly/ a year top ups to maintain hair.
What is the recovery time?
You will need little or no recovery time after a PRP treatment. There may be some pain where you have been injected for a day or two. It is common for patients to have a bit of swelling on the site or surrounding areas, It should last for about 48 hours and should get better. This is common especially when micro needling is performed. It is a normal part of the recovery
