What are the common side effects and is the procedure painful?
PRP scalp therapy involves minimal recovery time, and many patients feel comfortable enough to resume their day or return to work after the treatment. Side effects are rare since the patient’s own blood is being utilized and it requires no incisions, scars or sutures. Side effects may include swelling, temporary nerve injury, bruising, infection or scar tissue formation at the injection sites. Most often there is only tenderness at injection site, pinpoint bleeding and transient redness. We may apply a topical anesthetic numbing agent to the scalp prior to the procedure.
When should I expect to see results?
Clients usually begin to see results within three months.
How many times do I need to repeat the procedure?
For best results, the treatments are typically performed once a month for the first four to six months and then every three to six months thereafter, depending on individual response to therapy.
Will these treatments prevent further balding or hair loss?
Initially clients notice a decrease in hair shedding, followed by early regrowth, followed by increased hair length and hair density. It is recommended to continue providing the growth factors and stem cells needed for optimal results every three to six months.
