PRP Hair Restoration Explained

What is PRP Hair Restoration?

PRP, known as platelet-rich plasma, is a cosmetic procedure used for hair restoration. PRP is recommended for those suffering from hair loss due to stress, hormonal changes, family history, postpartum hair loss, post-hair transplant, use of medication and more. It is a minimally invasive, non-surgical solution to help grow and preserve the thickness of your hair.

Simply put, the scalp is injected with PRP, stimulating the hair follicle. Blood is drawn from the arm and then placed in a centrifuge. Once the blood is processed through the device, platelet-rich plasma is separated from white and red blood cells. After the extraction, the platelet-rich plasma contains the specific growth factors that work together to aid in regrowing and thickening the hair. Throughout multiple sessions, an individual can reach their hair goals.

Who Is It For And Am I A Candidate?

PRP Hair Restoration is ideal for individuals experiencing general thinning hair or hair loss. Several factors can contribute to hair loss, and sometimes these can be out of one's control. This can include:

  • Excessive stress
  • Hormonal changes or imbalances
  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Lifestyle
  • Medication
  • Medical Conditions
  • Family history
  • Postpartum Hair Loss
  • Post Hair Transplant

The treatment is a great choice to help stimulate recently lost hair back into the growth phase and can ultimately help boost one's confidence as well.

Am I A Candidate?

If you are facing hair loss or are experiencing hair thinning, our PRP service may help you achieve your hair goals. During your consultation at MD Skin Lab, your physician will assess your health history and relevant factors to see if the hair growth treatment is a good fit for you.

How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

The physician will draw your blood and then place it into a centrifuge to separate it into different components. This division process produces red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelet-rich plasma. Following this procedure, the physician will inject the PRP into the designated treatment zones.

What Areas Can Be Treated With PRP Hair Restoration?

The PRP Hair Restoration procedure treats the scalp, beard, and anywhere that hair has been grown, focusing on the primary sections where the hair loss is present. Additionally, the entire head can be treated to help preserve thickness.

Is PRP Hair Restoration Safe?

PRP is a safe treatment; it offers a minimally invasive and non-surgical approach to hair growth. Keep in mind that since it is from your own body, it is natural, and you cannot get any foreign body reaction or allergy. We recommend doing your research and selecting a clinic like MD Skin Lab, where you are treated by trusted healthcare professionals.

What Will Occur During A PRP Hair Restoration Appointment?

When you first arrive at MD Skin Lab in Toronto, one of our physicians – Dr. Soreya Dhanji or Dr. Vishaal Govan, will greet you at the door. You'll then be taken to the treatment room, and the process will be explained. Next, your physician will take down a detailed history of your hair loss, including when it started, whether it is related to stress, male/female pattern baldness, hormones, or even alopecia. Your physician will also take photos. Once the consultation has been completed, your physician will decide if you are a good candidate for PRP and, if so, develop a bespoke plan tailored to your hair goals.

A blood sample will be drawn from the arm for the PRP appointment. The blood that has been collected gets put through a centrifuge which separates the plasma (growth factors) from the white and red blood cells. Next, the scalp is cleansed. Your doctor will also provide Pronox (laughing gas) for pain management to make the procedure more comfortable.

Next, the concentrated plasma is injected into the scalp. Sometimes microneedling can also create minuscule punctures to allow the PRP to penetrate the scalp more deeply. When the process has come to completion, your physician will explain how to care for your scalp. Your physician is there to answer any questions that you have related to the PRP Hair Restoration treatment.

How Long Will A PRP Hair Restoration Appointment Take

Typically, the procedure takes about 30-45 minutes. PRP Hair Restoration is non-surgical and minimally invasive, which means you'll be able to get back into your regular activities almost immediately.

What Does The Treatment Feel Like?

An individual may feel discomfort during the procedure, but the treatment is well-tolerated by most patients.

In the area where the blood is drawn at first, the patient may feel a slight pinch similar to the feeling of having a blood test performed. Pronox is also provided for pain management and a comfortable experience. Some pressure or a subtle pinch may be felt during the injection, but it varies from person to person.

What Can I Expect After A Treatment?

Within the first few days after the procedure, mild discomfort may be experienced, including swelling and redness in the treated scalp area, though rare. Secondly, some itchiness or soreness may be encountered. However, all of these will subside after a couple of days. Relief can be found with over-the-counter pain medication. You can ask your physician for aftercare tips, and they'll happily provide direction!

Post-treatment, our physicians highly recommend protecting your head from the sun. It is best to avoid abrasive hair products that may irritate the scalp.

How Many Appointments Will I Need And When Will I See The Results?

Since each individual has different hair, there isn't a one-size-fits-all answer. PRP Hair Restoration may require anywhere from 3 to 6 sessions initially to see a noticeable improvement in hair density and fullness.

As long as you have some active hair follicles, hair density and fullness improvement should be seen 4 to 6 months after your initial treatment. Depending on your situation and hair growth goals, your physician may recommend 3 to 6 sessions a month apart. That would be followed by a subsequent treatment every 3 to 6 months to maintain results.

Will I Experience Any Side Effects?

Although this varies based on each individual, some side effects may be experienced at the injection site, such as mild itching, redness, soreness, or tenderness. Any side effects listed will subside within a few days after your treatment. Taking a pain medication such as Tylenol is fine as it can help alleviate discomfort.
