PRP Hair Loss Therapy Treatment Plan
- Blood is drawn from the patient just as it is when he or she is having a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge down to a high concentration so that the platelets are concentrated to up to three times the normal blood values.
- A topical anesthesia (normally 1% lidocaine) is applied to the scalp in the areas to be treated to mitigate discomfort.
- The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma is then injected into the scalp using a special micro needle. Typically, the treatment takes 60-90 minutes and involves dozens of injections depending upon the number and size of the areas being treated. The treatment requires about eight sittings, each two weeks apart, for best results.
- No sedation or medication is given the patient during the procedure. So the patient is able to drive and use machinery immediately after treatment.
- Patients can expect to see a fuzz of new hair growth after their fourth treatment. But PRP not only promotes new hair growth, it also strengthens hair follicles to prevent further hair loss and make thinning hair thicker.
