How long does PRP last for hair loss?
How many PRP treatments are needed for hair loss?
The number of PRP treatments required will be different for each patient and dependent on several factors. The amount of hair that has been lost and the area being treated will be the largest factors on determining how many treatments will be needed. Once treatments have started, the original estimate of expected treatments can change based on how the body responds to the treatment. An initial treatment of PRP will consist of multiple sessions spaced out over a period of several months. It is recommended to get the treatments in 4-6 week intervals with the number of sessions ranging anywhere from three to six, or more depending on the patient. Patients should expect to see results of PRP treatment by the four month mark after their first session. If at that point, there are no noticeable results, PRP therapy may not have been the right treatment for your hair loss.
What is the success rate of PRP hair treatment?
As PRP is still a fairly new treatment option for hair loss, there is no confirmed success rate available. Research and clinical studies are ongoing on the effectiveness of PRP hair loss treatment but some studies have shown to have a great success rate for hair regrowth in many of their patients. Results and success at this point can also be open to interpretation and based on each treated individual’s idea of what success is for their hair loss treatment. PRP hair loss treatment is not a one and done procedure, it will require multiple sessions in order for noticeable results to be visible. With any type of change that happens over an extended period of time, patients should take a before picture that they can refer back to during their treatments in order to gauge how effective the treatment is for them, and if they are in fact seeing their hair grow back and fill in the thinning areas.
Can PRP regrow hair?
Research and studies continue to be performed on PRP treatments for hair loss to fully understand its capabilities and success rate. So far results have shown that PRP treatment can cause hair to regrow provided that the hair follicle is still intact and alive. PRP treatment works as a type of regenerative medicine that provides proteins and growth factors into the damaged cells in the body, including the hair follicles, to stimulate healing using the body’s own platelet-rich plasma. If the hair follicles have stopped growing hair due to some form of damage, PRP therapy can be used to repair the hair follicles, causing the hair to starting growing again.
