Contrary to popular belief, hair thinning and hair loss doesn’t usually indicate that your hair follicles are gone. Instead, they are likely dormant, unable to move through the natural cycle of growth and regression. PRP is an excellent solution to this problem that can help people avoid less desirable approaches such as hair transplants or medication. When injected in the scalp, PRP can produce new stem cells in the root of the hair follicles. This process essentially wakes up the follicles so that they start producing hair again. PRP also stimulates beneficial blood flow that can encourage normal hair growth.

For hair restoration, the typical PRP session frequency is one treatment a month for four or six months, depending on how well the hair responds. Typically, the best growth can be seen several months after your initial round of PRP appointments. From there, two maintenance sessions a year are usually enough to sustain the results.
