What Happens During PRP Hair Loss Treatments?

1. Initial Consultation

Start your PRP for hair loss journey with an initial consultation with a qualified cosmetic practitioner to determine the suitability of PRP, and to understand your hair loss condition and health history.

2. Pre-Treatment Preparation

Prior to the procedure, your blood is drawn, similar to a routine blood test. The blood which is drawn is then processed to concentrate and extract the platelet rich component.

3. Sensation of Treatment

The pressure of the injections can cause some discomfort, however appropriate anaesthetic measures are taken to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible.

4. Immediately Following Treatment

After the procedure, the treated area may be tender & swollen. This can last for a few hours to a few days.

5. Treatment Duration

The total duration of a PRP treatment for hair loss is approximately one hour including the retrieval of blood and injections.
