A member of the expert team then injects concentrated PRP into the areas of your scalp that are experiencing hair loss.
The process is minimally invasive and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. If you’d like, your doctor can use a local anesthetic to make the PRP injections feel more comfortable.
Your doctor lets you know how often to receive PRP scalp injections to maximize hair restoration. You might require monthly injections for three months, and additional injections spaced further apart after that. Your individualized PRP injection schedule depends on the amount of hair loss you have.
