How Long Does PRP Work? And How Often Is It Used for Hair Loss?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is becoming more popular in many areas of medicine, especially as a way to help hair loss. The patient’s blood is used in this new process to help hair grow and restore hair follicles. As more people look for non-invasive ways to get their hair back, questions about how long PRP effects last and what other uses it has become more important.
For how long does PRP work?
How long the effects of PRP last depends on many things, including the person’s general health, how much hair loss there is, and the exact steps that were taken during treatment. Most of the time, people start to feel better after a few rounds, and the effects can last for months.
Studies show that maintenance sessions might be needed to keep the effects of PRP treatment going. These follow-up appointments, which are set up at times suggested by the treating doctor, help keep the hair healthy and may make the results last longer.
How PRP is Usually Used for Hair Loss
Androgenetic Alopecia (Male and Female Pattern Baldness)
Androgenetic alopecia is a genetic disease that causes hair loss and thinning and has shown promise in treating it with PRP. When PRP is injected directly into the damaged areas, the growth factors and cytokines in the plasma make hair follicles work better and make hair thicker.
For Alopecia Areata
People who have alopecia areata, an autoimmune disease that causes patches of hair loss, may feel better after PRP treatment. It’s the growth factors in PRP that help reduce inflammation and speed up hair growth in damaged areas.
How to Get Better After Hair Transplant Surgery
A lot of the time, PRP is used along with hair transplants to improve the results. If you put PRP on the transferred area, it speeds up the mending process, lowers inflammation, and helps new hair follicles grow.
