How does PRP for Hair Loss Work?
PRP for hair loss is similar to other PRP treatments for injuries and dentistry. The patients’ whole blood is removed, similar to getting a simple blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood, separating the platelets from the other cells. The platelets are then injected into the surface of the scalp at various intervals and angles. Growth factors in the platelets stimulate the hair follicles to heal and produce healthy hairs.
How Long Does PRP take?
PRP is best administered in 3 sessions, one month apart. Each session takes about 30-45 minutes.
Does PRP hurt?
The injections are not as deep as a typical flu shot, but as the process is fairly extensive, a topical anesthetic is applied prior to the injections.
How Long Does PRP take for hair to grow?
Normally patients begin to see results after the second treatment.
How much does PRP for Hair Loss Cost?
The cost of PRP treatment at Freedom Clinic is $900.00 per treatment.
Does PRP have any downtime or after effect?
There is no downtime aside from the procedure itself. A slight bit of redness on the scalp, as well as bumps at the injection sites will only last a few hours.
