Hair Restoration With PRP: How Many Treatments Are Needed?
If you want to experience the best results from this treatment, you must be consistent. You need to attend regular treatments as recommended by your technician. While no patient’s treatment plan will look identical, regular treatments will help you experience the best and most noticeable hair growth long term. Typically, patients will attend monthly treatments for three to four months and then, based on their results, will continue treatments every three to six months.
Your technician will evaluate your results and determine how many sessions you will need and how frequently you should schedule treatments to achieve your desired results. Knowing that treatment results require time and consistency can set your expectations so that you can go into this treatment knowing that your commitment to the process will help you achieve beautiful hair.
What Is Hair Restoration With PRP?
Hair restoration with PRP is a treatment that uses platelet-rich therapy to heal and restore damaged hair follicles so that you can experience renewed hair growth. This treatment is completely natural and capitalizes upon the power within the human blood in PRP to heal the body from the inside out.
Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors, healing properties, and regenerative capabilities and, when injected into the scalp, will stimulate healing, regrowth, and strengthen the hair follicles.
How Does It Work?
PRP therapy is a versatile treatment that can restore and heal the skin on different areas of the body as well as the face and the scalp. When used for hair restoration, PRP will be retrieved from your blood through a standard blood draw. One of our experts will take a blood sample typically from a vein in your arm and then place that sample in a specialized medical device called a centrifuge.
The purpose of a centrifuge is to rapidly spin the blood to separate the PRP from the plasma. After the blood sample spins in the centrifuge for a specific period of time, the PRP will rise to the top of the sample so that it can be extracted, separated from the rest of the blood, and prepared in an injectable form. During the treatment process, your technician will administer PRP into targeted areas on your scalp.
Specifically, it will be injected into those areas where you have experienced hair loss, a receding hairline, balding, or poor quality hair. The administration process of the injectable PRP will look different for different patients. Since different patients have unique goals regarding hair restoration, we will evaluate your problem areas and then determine where to inject the PRP to help you reach your hair goals.
A Quick Treatment
The injection process is quick and virtually painless but will help initiate a healing process within the body to which topical products and hair medication will not even compare. The entire appointment will take 30 minutes to complete.
When Will I See Results?
Hair growth takes time, so you won’t see immediate results after your treatment is complete, but those results will appear. With every treatment that you complete, you’ll be providing your body with more powerful growth factors that it can use to continue to heal the hair follicles on your scalp and promote healthier, thicker, beautiful-looking hair.
Most patients begin to notice results within two to three months of beginning the treatment process, and those results will continue to appear in the months following your treatment as you continue to undergo regularly scheduled sessions. We can provide you with a more concrete idea of what kind of results you can expect from your treatment plan.
How Do I Begin the Treatment Process?
The first step in this process is an initial consultation at our office. It’s important that we can meet with you in person to evaluate your specific problem areas and then design a treatment plan that’s right for you. Once you undergo an initial consultation, we can schedule your first treatment and begin your hair transformation the natural way.
Is There a Way That I Can Enhance My Results?
The best way to promote beautiful results is to attend regularly scheduled sessions as recommended by your technician. However, there are some habits you can instill in your daily life to help you achieve the best results.
By focusing on a lifestyle that promotes healthy hair, you can improve the quality of your existing hair and create the healthiest bodily environment to promote your future hair growth. Once that hair begins to grow, if you already have developed healthier habits, you can maintain the health and quality of that new hair long-term.
Eat a Healthy Diet
Your diet will affect the health and quality of your hair, so it’s important that you eat the right foods to promote hair health. Healthy fats, berries loaded with antioxidants, and nutrient-rich foods will help nourish your scalp and promote the healthiest post-treatment hair growth. Additionally, adding a nutritional supplement to your diet that promotes healthy hair, such as one that contains biotin, can help build on your treatment results and improve your existing hair.
You can add some of the following foods to your diet to promote the healthiest hair growth possible:
- Leafy green vegetables
- Lean Proteins
Heat is one of the most damaging elements that negatively affect hair. Many women use heat on a daily basis to style their hair and, as a result, experience breakage and damage. Taking a break from heat will do wonders for your hair and help it become stronger and healthier.
Letting your hair air dry and avoiding heated hair tools will help your hair recover and repair from heat damage. However, if you cannot avoid styling your hair with some form of heat, invest in a heat protectant product that will keep your hair from being extremely damaged by your hair tools.
If you’re a swimmer, use a gym pool, or have a home pool that contains chlorine, regular use will negatively affect your hair. However, there are different products that you can invest in that can help protect your hair from chlorine.
Applying these products before or after exposure to chlorine can keep your hair moisturized, help prevent dryness and breakage, and promote the healthiest hair possible. Additionally, rinsing your hair with cold water after being in chlorine can also help remove the chemicals from your hair and help protect it.
Invest in Scalp Exfoliating Products
PRP for hair restoration will help heal and renew damaged or dormant hair follicles. One way that you can help this process along as you wait for your results is to use a scalp exfoliator. Your scalp experiences dryness and buildup just like your face does, and if you don’t take the necessary steps to exfoliate your scalp, you won’t ever experience true scalp health. Using some exfoliating products in tools will help you maintain a healthy scalp possible.
Consider Installing a Water Filtration System
City water is full of harsh chemicals and elements that can negatively impact your hair. If you don’t have the means or ability to install a water filtration system in your home, you can attach a filtration shower head that will help filter your shower water so that you can avoid damaging your hair.
Use a Weekly Hair Mask
Applying a moisturizing and nourishing hair mask to your hair each week will help you keep your hair moisturized so that it can have a healthy, shiny appearance. You’ll be amazed at how a moisture-rich mask can improve the quality of your existing hair, and regular use will help protect your new hair growth as well.
Who Is a Candidate?
Anyone who has experienced hair loss makes a good candidate for hair restoration with PRP. One of the benefits of this treatment is that no one is excluded from using PRP to improve their scalp because there is no risk of an allergic reaction. You cannot be allergic to your own blood, so you won’t have to worry about any adverse or allergic reaction when you begin this treatment.
