PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires up to five treatments 4-6 weeks apart.
Maintenance treatments assist with maintaining the desired results and are recommended every 4 – 6 months. ( Recommendations are individualized and will be assessed by WFD Provider).
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).
After about 5 – 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:
- Platelet-poor plasma
- Platelet-rich plasma
- Red blood cells
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth and topically applied along with Microchanneling/Microneedling. PRP has sufficient theoretical scientific basis to support its use in hair restoration. Combined with other treatment modalities enhances and improves the overall outcome and satisfaction with results.
** Results vary among individuals however it is important to complete a medical history and be sure to let your WFD Provider know if you consume any form of tobacco including chewing and vaping. **
