How Does PRP Hair Restoration Work?

PRP hair restoration is a non-surgical procedure in which the patient’s platelet-rich plasma is injected into their scalp to trigger hair growth. Just because your hair follicles aren’t producing hair doesn’t mean they’re dead—they may simply be injured or inactive. Platelet-rich plasma contains growth factors, i.e., substances that activate adult stem cells and facilitate cell growth. As such, injecting your scalp with platelet-rich plasma leads to the formation of new blood vessels that carry nutrients to the follicles, encouraging hair growth.

Overview of PRP Hair Restoration Procedure:

  • Before the procedure, the doctor applies local anesthesia to numb your scalp and prevent pain or discomfort.
  • The doctor injects your platelet-rich plasma into the scalp with a fine needle.
  • The doctor targets areas of the scalp requiring the most attention, strategically injecting platelet-rich plasma to maximize hair restoration.
  • You’ll start seeing results after two months, but it may take around four to eight months before you see optimal results.

What to Expect in Recovery

Patients undergoing PRP hair restoration should expect a day or two of discomfort and swelling, as well as some pain that is easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. You can resume washing your hair normally but should avoid strenuous activities after treatment.

Who is an Ideal Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

The best candidates for this procedure are men and women experiencing hair loss, a receding hairline, bald spots, or thinning hair due to age-related physical changes, trauma, or hormonal fluctuations.

Advantages of a Jessner peel:

  • Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Reduces the effects of acne scarring
  • Treats enlarged pores
  • Improves poor skin tone and texture
  • Improves pigmentation issues
  • Treats melisma
  • Creates a youthful, radiant glow
  • Heals damage from excess sun exposure

Some clients are not ideal candidates for a Jessner peel, however. These include:

  • Those with cold sores or asthma
  • Those with lupus
  • Patients suffering from Eczema or psoriasis
  • Patients suffering from rosacea
  • Pregnant patients
  • Those with severe dermatitis or other skin disorders

What to expect with a Jessner skin peel

At first, your skin may be tight, dry and red, as well as slightly sensitive. These are all normal reactions to our San Diego chemical peel, and just means that the peel has done its job. Slowly over the course of about a week, the skin will turn from a pinkish color to a more brown shade. Once the damaged layer has been shed, however, your new complexion will be glowing and healthy. So expect about 7-10 days of recovery.
