FAQs: PRP Hair Restoration
From our experience, treatment intervals should include monthly sessions for the first 3 months, then a fourth treatment 6 months later (for a total of four treatments over 12 months), followed by maintenance treatments every 12 to 18 months.
The treated follicles need time to go through the normal growth phases before results are appreciated. Early signs of new growth are often visible between the 2nd and 3rd treatments, though improvements can appear earlier on or take longer, depending on the individual.
Cost of treatment is $450/ procedure.
The use of PRP for hair restoration is a newer development in the field of regenerative medicine. There are numerous studies showing really positive outcomes for patients with use of PRP for increased hair thickness and development of new hair follicles.
