Did you know that hair loss affects over 1.5 billion people worldwide? By restoring hair loss, you can gain your confidence back which allows you to look and feel like your most natural, attractive self again. Dr. Banis Plastic Surgery offers a hair growth solution called PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma). Check out a few facts about the PRP procedure below:

What is PRP?

PRP is a hair restoration procedure where a sample of your blood is drawn and your plasma is separated using a spinning device. Then, these cells are injected back into your scalp where the affected area needs treatment (where the hair loss is). This injection stimulates hair growth by encouraging normalization of the hair follicle – growing back your natural hair again.

What is the after-care of PRP like?

The PRP treatment is an in office, non-surgical treatment that is performed in 30-45 minutes. After the procedure takes place, patients may notice a brief period of inflammation for a few hours, which is expected. Patients are able to wash/shampoo/condition their hair several hours after the treatment. However, it’s best to avoid harsh chemical treatment or perming for at least a few days post-treatment. You can expect to start seeing results from this treatment within about 3 months.

How do I know if I am a candidate?

PRP is a great solution for anyone experiencing hair loss. While it’s best to catch hair loss early on, restoration can be effective for candidates at any age.
