Am I a Candidate for PRP Injections?

Thinning hair and textural changes are two of the most common signs of aging, and they can start earlier than you expect. PRP injections offer a natural way to restore healthier hair and skin or boost your existing treatments. This treatment uses your body’s healing abilities to trigger rejuvenation and restore a more youthful appearance.

What are PRP Injections?

When you are injured, special cellular components called platelets travel through the blood to provide a flood of signals that encourage healing and growth. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) concentrates these healing factors into an injectable treatment that can be used to restore thinning hair or provide smoother, more even skin. PRP injections are also used to treat a wide range of joint and muscle injuries and for other medical uses. 

Am I a Candidate for PRP Injections?

PRP is extracted from a sample of your own blood, which is spun in a centrifuge to separate out the platelet-rich layer. As a result, almost anyone can benefit from this low-risk treatment. Good candidates for PRP have reasonable expectations and want to restore thinning hair or a smoother skin texture. Candidates for hair restoration should still have some hair growth in the desired areas to see their best results. 

Men and women of any age can be good candidates for PRP therapy. Athletes often have this treatment injected into sports injuries to help them heal more quickly. However, you should not have PRP if you have certain blood disorders or other medical conditions. 

People who are using other types of treatments can still use PRP safely. For example, those using medications for hair restoration can see a boost in effectiveness with PRP injections. PRP also boosts the effects of facial treatments such as microneedling to provide better results and faster healing.

Is There Any Downtime With PRP Therapy?

PRP injections generally have no downtime and allow you to return to your regular activities immediately. If you have PRP on your scalp for hair restoration or on your face with microneedling, you may notice that the area feels slightly swollen and sensitive for a day or two. This should not limit your activities but do not use harsh products on your skin or scalp immediately afterward. 

How Long Does it Take to See PRP Results?

If you have PRP with microneedling, you may notice results almost immediately as your skin heals more quickly than without this treatment. However, improvements in skin texture can take several weeks to become noticeable. 

When receiving PRP for thinning hair, you will receive a series of treatments over several months. New hair regrowth may begin within a few weeks but will usually take several months to become visible. Occasional maintenance treatments will help your hair continue to grow thicker and fuller. 

I am currently undergoing a series of laser treatments with Kinsey and I couldn’t be more pleased. She is professional and always sets me at ease. I highly recommend Rejuve.
