Frequently Asked Questions

What is PRP hair treatment?

PRP hair treatment is a non-surgical procedure that uses the patient’s own blood plasma, enriched with platelets, to stimulate hair growth and improve hair density. The platelets contain growth factors that are believed to promote the regeneration of hair follicles.

How is PRP hair treatment performed?

During a PRP hair treatment, blood is drawn from the patient, and the platelet-rich plasma is separated through a centrifugation process. The concentrated PRP is then injected into the scalp in areas of hair loss or thinning.

How does PRP stimulate hair growth?

PRP contains growth factors that can promote hair follicle health, improve blood circulation in the scalp, and stimulate dormant hair follicles, potentially leading to hair regrowth and thicker, healthier hair.

Who is a suitable candidate for PRP hair treatment?

PRP hair treatment is generally suitable for individuals experiencing hair thinning or hair loss, including both men and women. It is probably most effective for people who are early on in their hairless and when combined with other therapies. A consultation with us can help determine if it is suitable for you.

How many PRP sessions are needed, and how often?

The number of PRP sessions and the frequency of treatments vary based on individual factors such as the severity of hair loss and the desired results. Typically, 3 sessions spaced at least a month apart are recommended to start, with maintenance sessions every 4-6 months advised to sustain the results over time.

Is PRP hair treatment painful?

Some patients may experience mild pain or discomfort during the procedure or temporary soreness afterward, but it is generally well-tolerated. At Elite Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, we offer Pro-Nox which is a combination of nitrous oxide and oxygen gas that helps patients relieve pain, stress, anxiety, and overall discomfort.

What are the potential side effects of PRP hair treatment?

PRP hair treatment is generally considered safe, as the patient’s own blood is used. Side effects are rare but may include mild swelling, redness, or bruising at the injection sites. These typically subside within a few days.

How soon can I expect to see results from PRP hair treatment?

Results from PRP hair treatment can vary among individuals. Some patients may start to notice improvement in hair quality and thickness within a few months after treatment, while others may require multiple sessions to observe noticeable changes.
