Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is aleading-edge cosmetic and hair restorationtreatment that’s now helping men and women look and feel their best. It can be used to reduce lines and wrinkles, and also restore thinning hair, but how many PRP therapy sessions do you need to see results?
What is PRP?
PRP involves the collection of blood from the patient, after which it is processed in a centrifuge to separate the blood components. PRP contains a high concentration of platelets, which help to promote healing in the body, and regenerate tissue. The PRP is then applied to the areas of the scalp when being used for hair loss treatment, or injected into the skin tissue in the case of facial rejuvenation.
How many PRP therapy sessions do I need
The number of PRP therapy sessions needed varies according to the specific condition being treated. If it is being used to treat wounds or injuries one treatment may be adequate, but more sessions are required when it is used for cosmetic applications.
For hair transplantation,PRP is injected into the thinning area of the scalp, and the growth factors in PRP help to stimulate the growth of the hair follicles. It may require 3-4 sessions to achieve the desired results.
When used as part of skin rejuvenation therapy, the platelets are injected into the skin where they encourage collagen growth, making the skin smoother and tighter. It may take about 3 sessions spaced a month apart, to gain optimal results.
