How Can PRP Work for Hair Loss?
Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors that thicken, strengthen, and stimulate all aspects of the hair. To begin, your blood is collected and spun in a centrifuge to separate the “good” blood from the not-so-good blood and red blood cells. The good blood has a high concentration of growth factors necessary for healing and hair growth. By injecting a patient’s own blood into the scalp, the skin is given what is needed to thicken the hair follicle, strengthen the hair, and stimulate new growth.
How Do I Know It’s Working?
Since there are many degrees of hair loss in men and women, the results may vary and may take a longer amount of time for people who are experiencing more hair loss. It is recommended that patients come to Park Avenue Medical Spa for their PRP treatment at least three times in one-month intervals to achieve the desired results. When you come in for your private consultation, Dr. Tchelebi will be able to tell you how many treatments should be expected to attain the luscious locks you want. After a series of treatments, patients can begin to see hair growth within a few months.
There is no downtime with this treatment; however, some patients may experience a tender scalp for a few days following their PRP injections.
