PRP for Hair Restoration Q & A

How does PRP for hair restoration work?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) for hair restoration is the latest and most natural way to restore your natural hair growth. This innovative treatment begins with a simple blood draw to extract a solution of platelets and growth factors — your PRP.

Your dermatologist injects your PRP into multiple locations throughout your scalp. Depending on your level of hair loss, your dermatologist can use a small needle or a microneedling tool to help your PRP penetrate through to the growth centers of hair follicles.

PRP quickly goes to work and enhances blood flow to hair follicles. With this surge of blood come nutrients and oxygen, which help follicles thrive. This effect awakens dormant (or inactive) hair follicles and helps enhance the health of currently growing follicles. Over a series of treatments, your hair growth dramatically improves, and thinning hair becomes a thing of your past. 

Am I a candidate for PRP for hair restoration?

PRP for hair restoration is a safe and highly effective solution for both men and women. You may be a candidate for this groundbreaking treatment from Nelson Dermatology if you:

  • Have thinning hair
  • Are generally healthy
  • Have intact hair follicles in the treatment area
  • Lose more than 100 hairs in a single day

The sooner you begin PRP hair restoration treatments when you experience hair loss, the easier it is to prevent serious issues like male-pattern baldness or a receding hairline. 

When will I have hair growth with PRP treatments?

You should notice that you have healthy sprouting hairs within about three months of beginning your PRP hair restoration plan at Nelson Dermatology. It can take up to 6-9 months for you to experience more dramatic hair growth.

To achieve your best hair growth results, Nelson Dermatology providers usually recommend about 3-4 PRP treatments, each spaced about a month apart. Once your PRP hair restoration plan is complete, it’s important to come to the clinic 2-3 times each year for maintenance treatments (to prevent further hair loss).
