Let us answer your PRP Therapy Questions.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair is a non-surgical treatment option that uses a patient’s own blood to potentially stimulate hair growth and reduce hair loss.
What is PRP Therapy For Hair and How Does it Work?
PRP therapy involves extracting a small amount of a patient’s blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and then re-injecting this platelet-rich plasma into the scalp. The growth factors in the concentrated platelets promote hair follicle growth, potentially leading to increased hair density and thickness.
Is PRP Therapy Effective for Hair Loss?
PRP therapy can be effective for certain types of hair loss, such as androgenetic alopecia (pattern baldness). Its effectiveness varies from person to person. While some patients report positive results, it’s not universally effective, and more research is needed to fully understand its efficacy.
What Are the Side Effects or Risks Associated with PRP Therapy?
Safety is a major concern for most individuals. While safe, it’s best to inquire about the potential side effects, risks, and any long-term implications of undergoing PRP therapy for hair loss with you board-certified Plastic Surgeon.
How Many Sessions Are Required and How Often?
The treatment typically requires multiple sessions. Initially, patients may undergo monthly treatments for about three to four months, followed by maintenance treatments every 3–6 months. The exact number and frequency of treatments can vary based on individual response and the severity of hair loss.
How Much Does PRP Therapy for Hair Loss Cost?
The cost of PRP therapy can vary widely depending on geographic location, clinic, and the number of sessions required. Prices can range from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars per session. PRP therapy for hair loss is usually not covered by insurance as it’s considered a cosmetic procedure. It’s best to schedule a hair consultation with Davis Hair Restoration to get accurate costs.
