PRP for Hair
If you are struggling with thinning or balding hair, PRP treatments can be an effective solution for restoring natural hair growth. At Goodman Dermatology, we offer this treatment to the men and women living in Roswell, Marietta / East Cobb, Woodstock and Dawsonville, GA.
What is PRP for Hair?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a solution that is created by taking a sample of blood. The blood contains cells known as growth factors, which have the ability to rapidly heal the body. When these cells are concentrated into a dense formula (platelet-rich plasma), they can be injected into the scalp to heal hair follicles and encourage natural hair growth. Using PRP therapy for hair growth is an entirely natural solution for hair loss, since the PRP is derived from your own blood. Plus, this treatment involves practically no downtime, thanks to the healing benefits of PRP.
How Much Does PRP for Hair Cost?
The cost of your PRP therapy treatment will vary depending on the extent of treatment necessary. At Goodman Dermatology, we understand that each patient is entirely unique. With different skin types, cosmetic features and treatment needs, each patient deserves a personalized treatment that is designed with them in mind. For these reasons, we are not able to provide an exact cost for treatment until we have the opportunity to assess your treatment goals and develop a personalized treatment plan.
During your consultation, we will discuss your needs and treatment goals in order to determine this treatment plan and inform you of the cost of your PRP hair loss treatment. To make our treatments more affordable for our patients, we are proud to offer financing options through CareCredit®.
What Can I Expect During the PRP Treatment?
The PRP treatment begins with collecting a small sample of blood. The blood sample will then be placed into a machine that separates the beneficial blood platelets from the rest of the ingredients, creating PRP. Then, PRP will be injected into various areas of the scalp. For this step, we can use a variety of anesthetic techniques to minimize any pain or discomfort.
Are There Any Side Effects After PRP for Hair?
After PRP for hair, you may experience some swelling, discomfort, or tenderness in the treatment area. However, these side effects typically fade within a few days.
Is There Any Downtime Required After PRP for Hair?
There is no downtime or recovery period necessary after PRP therapy for hair. In fact, you’ll be able to wash your hair within hours of treatment.
What Kind of Results Can I Expect After PRP for Hair?
The results from PRP will develop gradually in the months following your treatment. As PRP stimulates growth in the treated area, you can expect to see results as early as two or three months after treatment. These results will continue to improve, showing dramatic improvements within a year of treatment. For best results, we recommend a series of PRP therapy treatments. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your cosmetic goals in order to determine the number of PRP treatments that will be best for you.
