Hair loss is an extremely common condition that many of us face, the severity can range from hair thinning to bald spots. There are many modern hair restoration techniques available, and they all have advantages and disadvantages.

Platelet rich plasma therapy is a very effective treatment, but it doesn’t create hair growth overnight. We are often asked by our patients “How long does it take for PRP to work on hair?” The simple answer to this question is PRP hair treatment takes one to six months to start showing visible results.

What Is PRP Hair Treatment

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment is a modern hair loss treatment designed to promote hair growth and restore hair density. This therapy involves drawing a small blood sample from the patient, processing it to extract the platelet-rich plasma, and injecting it into the scalp.

The growth factors in the PRP stimulate dormant hair follicles, encouraging new hair growth and improving the health of existing hair. Many patients opt for PRP therapy as it leverages their own blood, reducing the risk of any potential side effects and promoting natural hair growth.

What You Can Expect During Your PRP Hair Loss Treatment At Aventus Clinic

During this assessment, a healthcare professional will review your medical history and discuss any certain medications you might be taking. Once confirmed as a suitable candidate, you will schedule your appointment to meet Dr. Suhail Alam, who will perform your treatment.

Upon arrival at the clinic, exceptional patient care is provided to ensure your comfort. The PRP hair treatment process takes between 30-60 minutes. A small blood sample is drawn and processed to concentrate the platelet-rich plasma. Your scalp is numbed before the PRP injections are administered to the affected areas. These injections are designed to stimulate hair growth by targeting dormant hair follicles. After the procedure, you will receive detailed aftercare instructions to support your recovery and enhance the beneficial effects of the treatment.

PRP Results Timeline – What You Can Expect

Understanding the timeline of PRP hair treatment results can help set realistic expectations and highlight the gradual progress of hair restoration. Here, we break down the process into three key phases to give you a comprehensive overview.

Initial Treatment and Early Weeks

In the initial stages of PRP hair restoration which includes the first few weeks after your treatment, patients often report a tingling sensation on their scalp. This is often a sign of the growth factors beginning to activate dormant hair follicles. It is normal to not see any significant visible results for the first month, with most reporting noticable results between months three to six.

Noticeable Changes at 3-6 Months

Between three to six months after starting platelet rich plasma injections, patients typically start to notice significant results. New hair growth becomes visible, and areas of thinning hair show increased hair density. During this phase, the PRP injections continue to stimulate hair follicles, enhancing the hair growth cycle. Patients often observe healthier hair with improved thickness and a reduction in hair thinning.

Long-Term Results and Maintenance

At the 6 month mark, the full results of PRP treatments will be achieved. Many patients report increased hair growth and improved scalp coverage with overall thicker and healthier hair. Maintenance treatments are recommended to sustain and enhance the results achieved. We recommend keeping up with maintenance sessions every six to twelve months.
