What Is Hair Restoration With PRP?

In cases where a hair transplant or hair topicals is not desirable or necessary, PRP is a low-risk option for those seeking help with hair loss. Men and women alike can benefit from hair restoration with PRP. Although results do vary on an individual basis, it has been statistically shown to trigger natural hair growth. Hair restoration with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is an innovative, non-surgical, regenerative technique. Since PRP is taken from your own body, there’s no chance of a bad reaction or your body rejecting it when it is administered to the scalp. When introduced to the scalp and existing hair follicles, platelet-rich plasma triggers the body’s natural regenerative abilities. In the restoration of hair, the growth factors contained in PRP are thought to aid in the growth or thickening of hair produced by follicles that are in a dying phase.

What Does The Process For Hair Restoration With Prp Entail?

Hair restoration with PRP involves the following steps:

  • PRP is isolated from a small amount of your blood.
  • A local anesthetic is applied to the scalp.
  • The PRP solution is injected into various points around the scalp.
  • The entire procedure generally takes 45 minutes to an hour for a single treatment.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

Practitioners will often want you to have multiple treatments within the first four to six weeks in order to stimulate the scalp and achieve healthier hair growth.

Typically after the initial treatments, as many as four sessions are scheduled during a twelve-month period. This is because most patients will schedule repeat treatments every three to four months.

Am I A Candidate?

If you are experiencing the onset of hair loss or have been experiencing thinning, hair restoration with PRP might be an option for you.

During a consultation with Dr. Egrari, you will discuss your medical history and any medications that you may currently be on so that he can determine whether or not the use of PRP is appropriate for you. If possible, Dr. Egrari may also suggest an alteration to your medication to allow you to undergo the treatment.

Factors that may disqualify you from the procedure are:

  • You are currently on blood-thinning medication.
  • You are a heavy smoker.
  • You’ve experienced certain diseases such as cancer.
  • You have a history of heavy drug or alcohol use.
  • You have a low platelet count.
  • You have other systemic disorders.

Be sure to fully disclose your medical history and any medications or supplements you may be taking, as they could interfere with or pose risks during treatment.

What Is The Cost Of The Procedure?

The procedure cost varies based on location and the practitioner. On average, the cost of hair restoration with PRP ranges from $1500 to $3500 for the initial package of treatments. The subsequent treatments will vary in cost based upon patient need. This may vary depending on the equipment used and if any nutrients or other components are added to the PRP injected into the scalp.

How Long Is The Recovery Time?

Recovery time is minimal, as the anesthetic will wear off quickly and the tenderness of the scalp will ease within a day or so. Due to the non-invasive nature of the treatment, the recovery is very simple. Factors that may extend recovery time include adverse reactions to the anesthetic, infection, or damage to blood vessels in the scalp. Using a board-certified practitioner such as Dr. Egrari will reduce the likelihood of the procedure causing complications.
