How Long Does PRP for Hair Restoration Last
The first round of treatments will give you a few visits to see initial results. After that, it’s just touch-ups every year or so for maintenance as new hair begins growing in place.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from PRP for Hair Restoration?
There is no recovery time following a PRP appointment. You may feel a mild discomfort during and following the procedure, but the sensation will dissipate after roughly 3 days. Local anesthesia may be utilized to reduce the soreness, and proper pre-procedure and post-procedure care is necessary.
What Is PRP for Hair Restoration?
PRP for hair restoration uses innovative platelet-rich plasma (PRP) technology whereby a clients’ own blood is drawn to extract the PRP and then injected into the scalp where hair loss/thinning is present. Platelets are the components of our blood that contain multiple growth factors and nutrients. This procedure stimulates new growth of the hair.
Are You a Candidate for PRP for Hair Restoration?
PRP hair restoration may be for you if you suffer from hair thinning or hair loss. Before PRP treatment, you should book a consultation with one of our specialists. If most or all your hair has been lost and there’s no sign that it will grow back anytime soon, the procedure may not be able to restore what was once there. This procedure is perfectly safe for all genders.

How Is PRP for Hair Restoration performed by Dr. Christopher Pavlou
A sample of your blood is spun in a centrifuge, which separates the highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma from the other components of the sample.
Platelet-rich plasma releases growth factors when injected into the scalp, causing increased tissue rejuvenation and growth. This procedure is unique because your natural tissue is used to rejuvenate yourself without foreign substances or surgical intervention, eliminating the risk of immune rejection or complications.
