What is platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and why is it important?
Platelet-rich plasma is a naturally occurring substance derived from human blood. PRP is taken from each patient for their specific treatment, making it a safe and effective option. The growth factors and important proteins found in the platelets that give PRP its name have been used for decades to improve healing in soft tissue injuries. Now, this substance is being used for a wide range of aesthetic rejuvenation techniques including as a method of improving hair growth in patients with age-related hair loss or thinning.
Does microneedling hurt?
Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy. It involves rolling a specialized tool over the skin to create hundreds of tiny injuries and microchannels in the scalp. This process can improve the appearance of many common aging concerns as it provokes the body’s natural healing response, which includes the collagen creation. When used in conjunction with PRP, it allows for deeper penetration of the PRP substance and helps support its many benefits. Microneedling is not a painless procedure. However, the needles used for microneedling are very small and fine, and your provider can use a topical anesthetic to improve your comfort during your treatment.
Am I a good candidate?
PRP and microneedling for hair regrowth will typically require a series of scalp treatments that will be completed every few weeks for 3 months. This will help optimize your results and improve your chances of seeing a more dramatic improvement. PRP microneedling for hair loss works best in patients who have recently begun to notice significant hair loss, as these follicles are more likely to benefit from the improved collagen production.
What is the recovery like for this procedure?
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits of PRP and microneedling is that they require zero downtime for recovery. You will want to avoid washing your hair for as long as possible following your treatment because it will allow the PRP to be effectively absorbed into the microneedling channels. However, you can return to your normal activities immediately following your appointment and wash your hair with your normal shampoo and/or condition the same day or the next morning, depending on your personal preference.
When will I notice results?
Most patients will notice improvement after approximately 4-6 weeks. An initial treatment regimen will generally require monthly treatments for 3 months. Following your initial treatment plan, you can always schedule a touch-up if you feel like your scalp could use an extra boost. Because PRP and microneedling are both extremely safe procedures with virtually zero risk of complication, there is no limit to how many treatments you can schedule in the future.
