Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a safe and efficient procedure for hair restoration. Based on the principle that human blood and platelets possess all the essential elements needed for tissue, PRP is designed to produce natural hair regrowth through the collection of your own blood. The process consists of drawing a small amount of blood that is spun to create supernatant plasma, which is then injected into your hair loss area. The procedure lasts for 30 minutes with little to no discomfort during the injections. In the treated area, improvements in hair texture can be seen within two weeks. However, after the initial treatment it typically takes 3 to 6 months to see measurable results. The number of treatments needed depends on each individual patient, the desired outcome and your recommended treatment plan.
