Natural Hair Restoration Solution FAQ

How do injections for hair loss work?

The procedure is a three-step process. First, we draw a patient’s blood (usually from the arm), put it in a centrifuge to separate it into a concentration of platelet-rich growth factors, and finally, inject it into the scalp. This restimulates the production of hair follicles, creating a natural and thicker head of hair.

Does it hurt?

Our patients typically report no pain throughout their entire treatment. Dr. Rokhsar will give nerve block injections making the procedure completely painless.

How is the recovery period?

There is no traditional downtime or recovery associated with treatment. However, you can resume your regular activity, including showering and washing your hair, immediately after leaving our office.

How many sessions will I need?

As a general recommendation, we have seen that this natural hair loss treatment can be effective if performed once a month for the first three to four months and then every six months after.

Am I a candidate?

Men and women of all ages experiencing mild to moderate hair loss are good candidates for a hair restoration treatment. Patients with relatively healthy and active hair follicles tend to see the best results. The procedure is also popular among patients with androgenic alopecia.

Are there any associated risks?

This hair loss treatment is considered safe and side effects are rare. Swelling and redness generally do not occur after. If swelling and redness do occur, they typically fade within one to two days. Be honest with your doctor about any medical conditions before the procedure.

What is PRP hair restoration?

PRP hair restoration is a procedure in which a patient’s blood is drawn and then processed in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) portion of the blood. The PRP is then injected into the patient’s scalp to promote hair growth and slow the rate of hair loss. PRP contains growth factors that can help stimulate hair follicles and encourage new hair growth. Some doctors believe that PRP therapy may even help regrow hair in certain cases. PRP hair restoration is considered to be a safe and less invasive alternative to hair transplant surgery, and it has become an increasingly popular treatment option for those experiencing hair loss.

How many PRP injections are needed for hair?

The number of PRP injections needed for hair loss varies depending on the severity of the hair loss and the individual patient’s response to the treatment. However, most PRP therapy for hair loss typically requires an initial series of 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Maintenance treatments are also required every 4-6 months to maintain the positive effects of the treatment. In other words, most patients will undergo 4 treatments in the first year and 2 treatments per year after that to maintain their results.

How often can you get PRP injections for hair growth?

Most patients require a series of three PRP injections, spaced 4-5 weeks apart, to achieve optimal results. After this initial series, maintenance treatments may be recommended every 4-6 months to help sustain hair growth and thickness.

The frequency of maintenance treatments can vary based on individual patient factors, such as age, genetics, and amount of hair loss. Additionally, the duration of PRP treatment effects can also vary, with some patients experiencing results lasting up to a year, while others may require more frequent treatments. Dr. Rokhsar may recommend treatment with other medications including finasteride and minoxidil in addition to PRP injections for better hair growth results.
