Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS PRP FOR HAIR LOSS?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a hair treatment that involves collecting platelets found in your own blood to benefit from their natural healing power. Concentrated platelets contain significant growth and healing factors, which are components that enhance and accelerate your body’s ability to self regenerate.
PRP is the only available technology that works with increased levels of all your naturally occurring growth factors, making it extremely useful for hair growth and restoration treatments.
IS PRP SAFE?
Not only has PRP been heralded as a revolutionary way to stimulate and restore hair growth, but it is also one of the safest cosmetic hair growth options available today. But, despite the prevalent opinion of PRP’s safety and its benefits within medical literature, it is still in the early stages of scientific research for subsequent FDA approval.
AM I A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR PRP?
Overall, PRP is a safe and natural treatment for men and women looking to restore their confidence and to regain a lush head of hair. Although to be a good candidate for PRP treatment you must not have a history of genetic or stress related hair loss conditions, such as scarring Alopecia.
It is important to conduct careful research about your hair loss pattern, with an experienced physician, to assess if it is the best procedure for your health and goals.
HOW IS THE AFTERCARE?
The best thing about PRP treatments is that there is minimal to no downtime required. After the procedure, you’ll be instructed to follow simple recommendations, like avoiding hair dryers for 48h and hair dyeing for a week. On the other hand, having a warm shower is encouraged, as it can help to stimulate blood flow in the treatment area. Overall, the recovery process is not expected to be painful at all but, in case of any discomfort, you can take over the counter pain reliefs.
