PRP Hair Restoration Q&A

What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP)?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a concentrated solution derived from your blood cells. 

To obtain the PRP solution, your Wellness Med Art practitioner takes a small sample of your blood and puts it in a centrifuge machine that spins at a high speed to separate the solids from the liquid plasma. They collect the platelets and reintroduce them into the plasma, which creates the solution.

What conditions does PRP hair restoration treat?

Before scheduling treatment, your professional practitioner first assesses your scalp and hair growth to determine if you’re a candidate for PRP hair restoration.

Hair loss can result from several conditions, including:

  • Pattern baldness (male or female)
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Nutrient deficiencies
  • Thyroid disease
  • Alopecia areata (an autoimmune disease that attacks hair follicles)

Whether you experience temporary or permanent hair loss, PRP hair restoration may help. 

How does PRP hair restoration work?

At Wellness Med Art, a Hair Stem Cells Plus physician administers your PRP hair restoration. Treatment for hair regrowth begins with making sure the targeted areas in your scalp are numb. Once the PRP solution is created, it’s ready for injection with a very fine needle into your scalp, where your hair is thinning.

The procedure takes up to 80 minutes; you might have some mild swelling for about 4-6 hours after your injections. But don’t worry. The side effects shouldn’t last more than 48 hours.

The PRP hair restoration process increases the blood supply to your hair follicles, which may trigger natural hair growth and increase the thickness of your hair shaft. 

What results can I expect with PRP hair restoration?

After your procedure, no downtime is required. Soon after your treatment, your dormant hair follicles may start to come back to life. You should begin to see new, fine baby hair start to grow in and also notice less hair loss. For many, hair growth occurs in 5-8 months. However, the best results occur about one year after treatment.

Your practitioner can help determine if you need additional or periodic PRP hair restoration treatments.
