How Long Does PRP Treatment Last?

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP hair restoration treatment can last from 6 to 12 months. Initial PRP treatment normally requires 3 sessions that are carried out over intervals of 4 to 6 weeks. After the treatment is complete, you require a single maintenance session. After this, you will need more single maintenance sessions carried out at intervals of 6 to 12 months.

PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. It is a nonsurgical treatment to restore hair affected by hair loss. The idea behind this treatment is simple.

First, a concentrated solution is prepared from your own blood sample. The solution is then injected into parts of your scalp undergoing hair loss. The evidence suggests that the PRP method is a promising solution to hair loss for certain patients. If it works for you then there is no need to spend money on expensive pharmaceutical products and transplant surgeries.

But one thing that you should remain aware of is that PRP treatment is not a permanent solution for hair loss unlike transplant surgery.                                                                                                                                                  

Here are further details on PRP treatment.

How PRP Treatment Works

Plasma is a fluid within your blood. There are 3 kinds of cells in blood:

  • (1) red blood cells – transport oxygen throughout your body
  • (2) white blood cells – prevent infections
  • (3) platelets – heal and repair wounds through blood clots and scabs

For PRP treatment you will need to give a sample of your blood. The sample is placed in a centrifuge. This machine spins the blood so that it separates into its 3 constituents: red blood cells, platelet-rich plasma and platelet-poor plasma.

For treating baldness, the fluid should contain about 5 times the normal platelet concentration. Platelets are responsible for releasing growth factor proteins that heal. These proteins are capable of stimulating the growth of certain kinds of tissues.

When the solution is ready, it is injected into tissue that requires treatment. One key benefit of PRP treatment is that in addition to being effective it is also very safe. this treatment already enjoys widespread use in facial skin rejuvenation and joint conditions.

Growing evidence suggests that PRP treatment works well for stimulating hair growth. The abundance of cytokines and growth factors in the concentrated fluid sample is capable of enhancing follicle function. Owing to safety and efficacy, the PRP method is now becoming a popular hair loss treatment. It is a good alternative to hair transplant surgery.
