PRP after Hair-Transplant

Table of Contents

What is PRP ?

PRP is a concentration of platelets and other growth factors found in the patient’s own blood. It is created by spinning the patient’s blood in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and other growth factors from the red and white blood cells. Once the platelets and growth factors are concentrated, they are injected into the scalp, where they work to promote wound healing, reduce inflammation, and stimulate the growth of new hair follicles.

How Can PRP Help Improve Hair Transplant Results?

PRP has been used successfully to improve the results of hair transplants. Studies have shown that PRP can increase the survival rate of transplanted hair follicles, as well as increase the thickness and density of the transplanted hair. This is because PRP helps to nourish the transplanted follicles and provide them with the necessary nutrients to thrive. Additionally, PRP can help to reduce the risk of scarring, which is common after a hair transplant procedure.

In addition to improving the results of a hair transplant, PRP can also be used to help reduce hair loss in the areas of the scalp that were not transplanted. This is because PRP can help to stimulate dormant hair follicles and promote hair regrowth in those areas.

PRP and Hair Transplant

Hair transplants are a great way to restore your hair and give you a full head of hair once again. However, to get the best results from your transplant, you may want to consider adding Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to your treatment protocol. PRP is a powerful tool that can help improve the results of your hair transplant and give you a fuller, thicker head of hair.

When Should You Consider Using PRP?

PRP can be used to improve the results of any hair transplant, whether it’s a traditional strip-harvesting transplant or a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure. The best time to consider using PRP is right after your hair transplant: After your hair transplant, schedule a series of PRP treatments to help optimize the results. This will stimulate the transplanted follicles and help them to heal more quickly and effectively.
