What Is PRP Therapy?
To begin, we’ll discuss exactly what PRP is. PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, and it is a medical treatment in which plasma injections are directed into your scalp. The proteins and other chemicals in the PRP trigger natural hair growth by increasing blood supply to the hair follicles. When the follicles get more nutrients from the blood, they will grow thicker and more healthy than before.
How Does The PRP Process Work?
To get the platelet-rich plasma needed for this treatment, we start with your own blood. We will take a small amount of blood, typically from your arm, and then place this blood into a centrifuge so that the parts of the blood are separated. After a short amount of time, the PRP portion of the blood will be separated from the rest. The PRP can then be injected into your scalp to begin its work in strengthening the follicles. Since we are taking parts of your very own blood and placing them back into your body, you never have to worry about the safety of this procedure.
How Long Does PRP Take?
As far as the treatment process for PRP, it is done relatively quickly. Typically the longest part of the appointment will be waiting for the blood to separate in the centrifuge so the PRP can be removed. Overall, each treatment will take about an hour.
To begin seeing results from your PRP treatment will take a bit longer. It can take between a few weeks and a couple of months to start seeing major improvements. This all depends on the speed of your hair growth and how much change you are hoping to see. In many cases, having several treatments will be ideal so that you can get the best and longest-lasting results. Typically, we will treat once a month until either we recommend other treatments or you are satisfied with the results.
