PRP Hair Restoration: Costs, Procedure, Success Rate

PRP hair restoration, or Platelet-Rich-Plasma therapy, often nicknamed ‘liquid gold’ or the Kardashian-approved ‘vampire facial’, is becoming increasingly popular for treating hair loss. This treatment is now seen as the leading non-surgical option for both men and women experiencing patterned hair loss, thinning hair, or receding hairlines. In this article, we’re diving deep into everything about PRP hair restoration. We’ll explore how the procedure works, what you can expect in terms of costs, and the success rates associated with this innovative treatment. So, let’s delve into the world of PRP hair restoration and understand why it’s becoming a go-to solution for many!

PRP hair restoration involves a simple but scientifically advanced process. Here’s a quick breakdown:

  1. Blood Collection and Processing: Initially, a small amount of your blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge, which spins the blood at high speeds. This process separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of the blood.
  2. Platelet Activation: The isolated PRP is rich in growth factors. These growth factors are crucial because they play a significant role in healing and cell regeneration, which is essential for hair growth.
  3. Application to the Scalp: The activated PRP is then carefully injected into the areas of your scalp where hair loss is evident. This part of the procedure is meticulously carried out to ensure that the PRP reaches the hair follicles that need rejuvenation.
  4. Post-Treatment Care and Follow-up: After the procedure, you might be advised on specific care routines and possibly additional treatments to enhance the effectiveness of the PRP therapy.

In terms of cost, PRP hair restoration varies depending on geographic location, the expertise of the clinician, and the number of sessions required. Generally, it’s considered a more affordable option compared to surgical hair restoration methods.

Success rates for PRP hair restoration are quite encouraging. Many patients report significant improvement in hair density, thickness, and appearance. However, results can vary, and it’s important to have realistic expectations and discuss these with your healthcare provider.

PRP hair restoration is not just about regaining lost hair; it’s about restoring confidence and improving overall quality of life for those affected by hair loss. With its growing popularity and positive outcomes, it’s no wonder why more and more people are turning to this innovative treatment

PRP Treatment is considered the top method in part because it has so many benefits. Let’s discuss:

    • No downtime and non-invasive: This one’s huge. You’ll be able to resume your lifestyle habits almost immediately after leaving our practice 
    • Relatively cost effective: PRP is considered to be quite cost-effective when compared to other treatment methods that provide subpar results and usually involve nasty chemicals.
    • Minimal discomfort: the treatment itself has been rated as a 1 out of 10 on the pain factor, with some clients even accidentally falling asleep during the procedure
    • 100% natural and therapeutic: There are absolutely zero pharmaceutical Frankenstein chemicals, strong acids or synthetic plumping agents involved in the PRP therapy process. Since PRP basically uses your own blood’s growth factors, there’s no chance that your body will have an adverse reaction to it. 
    • Long-lasting results: satisfaction has been reported to last for more than one year after only one or two PRP treatment sessions. Additionally, facial PRP injections have been shown to last longer than most other fillers, lasting a duration of 18 months or more.

The in’s and out’s of PRP Hair Loss Therapy

  • Collection Of Blood Sample: The first step of the procedure is taking either 30ml or 60ml of your blood, depending on which PRP option you decide to go with. Just for some perspective: when we donate blood, the standard is 500ml!
  • Separation Of Platelets from Other Components of Blood: We use a double spin centrifuge technique method in order to separate the platelets from the other blood components. The double spin method ensures an optimal concentration of platelets that are abundant in valuable essential growth factors.
  • Insertion Of PRP Into Affected Area with Multi-Layer, Micro-Droplet Injections:
    We inject the PRP extracted safely into the affected areas on the scalp with the use of U225 mesogun. Our U225 mesogun allows tiny droplets of PRP to be delivered into the treatment area at an accelerated pace with controlled depth, volume, and great precision. PLUS BIG BONUS: Using a mesogun allows us to omit the use of numbing cream (which can impact the end result), and it allows the procedure to be virtually painless.  We have even had clients doze off during treatment! Additionally, using a mesogun = virtually no bruising.

  1. Success Rate:  There has been an increasing number of studies published supporting PRP therapy as one of the most successful and effective non-surgical methods to treat hair loss without major side effects. PRP Therapy has been shown to be highly effective in treating both thinning hair and pattern baldness in both men and women predisposed to genetic conditions. The final results of a treatment can be expected to be seen after. 3-8 months. However, the response to this treatment is individualized with a broad spectrum of effectiveness. It does not work in all cases and patients are monitored throughout the regimen in order to assess the benefits of therapy.
