HOW MANY PRP SESSIONS ARE NEEDED?
The hair follicle-stimulating results of PRP treatment for hair regrowth is NOT permanent. Most patients who undergo PurePRP®, require repeat treatment in about 4 months. Because hair typically grows at a rate of 1/4 inch per month it typically takes three to six months to measure the improvements from PRP using scalp analysis tools and six to twelve months to “see” results in the mirror or in photos. Over time, PRP may need to be repeated depending on the patient’s response to therapy, hair loss condition, adjunctive treatments and goals. By monitoring the hair growth over time, we can determine when the improvement in hair growth from PRP slows down or plateaus, eliminating guesswork as to when to administer PRP again. At that time, additional treatment with PRP may be necessary in order to maintain the desired results.
