1. Consultation and Planning
When you come to a consultation at New Life Cosmetic Surgery Center, we will assess your hair thinning concerns to determine if you are a good candidate for PRP. You will learn how the procedure works to create more hairs in each follicle, thicken your current hair shafts, and decrease shedding. PRP is the newest trend in regenerative medicine and used for skin wrinkles and in orthopedics for joint pain and arthritis. The growth factors found in your plasma are condensed and work like miracle grow for your hair and just for you!
On the day of your procedure, you can drive yourself to and from the office. A small amount of blood is drawn and then as you relax in our cosmetic procedure room, it is spun down in a centrifuge to isolate the growth factors. Your scalp is then treated with the Platelet-Rich Plasma and then cleaned up.
You should sleep in a reclined position for the first couple nights to decrease swelling and discomfort. You will be able to shower and go about your normal activities the following day.
You should limit your activity for about 3 days after your procedure. You should eat a healthy diet and as much protein as possible to promote good healing.
You will notice your hair becoming thicker over the next 3 months. It often takes 3 treatments to notice a significant difference in your hair. Treatments can be performed about a month apart.
Remember that everyone is different. Recovery times and progression is not the same for everyone. The times stated are typical for healthy individuals healing from this procedure. The normal progression of healing may be different for those with health problems, smokers, and those who have unforeseen complications after a procedure.
With Platelet-Rich Plasma Scalp Treatments, you will get fuller, thicker hair without surgery. You will love how your hair looks and feels. PRP can give you the confidence you need to feel great about yourself. Individual results may vary.
