Questions and Answers
Q: Will treatment be painful?
A: Most patients report very minimal discomfort during treatment. There may be some delayed pain and swelling, but these symptoms are easily managed with at-home care.
Q: What types of hair loss can it address?
A: PRP hair restoration is appropriate for most types of hair loss, but the results will be most effective in cases of early thinning in the scalp. With men, this tends to mean a receding hairline and a bald patch in the back of the head. Women may see more widespread thinning with a larger gap developing along the part.
Q: How many treatments will I need?
A: To see continued results, PRP hair restoration will require between 4-6 initial treatments followed by maintenance treatments every 3-6 months. At first, you will want to see your hair restoration specialist for treatment once every 4-6 weeks for the core set of treatments. After that, you should schedule subsequent appointments at intervals of 3-6 months, depending on your doctor’s recommendations.
