How long until PRP for Hair Loss starts to work?

To start PRP for Hair Loss Treatments – we recommend:

When first commencing PRP for Hair Loss Treatments, we recommended 4 x Initial PRP for Hair Loss Treatments,  spaced 1-4 weeks apart.  For example:  

  • 1st PRP Treatment
  • 2nd PRP Treatment (minimum 3 days OR maximum 4 weeks after the previous PRP treatment)
  • 3rd PRP Treatment (minimum 3 days OR maximum 4 weeks after the previous PRP treatment)
  • 4th PRP Treatment PRP Treatment (minimum 3 days OR maximum 4 weeks after the previous PRP treatment)

After the initial 4 x PRP Treatments, what can you expect?

After completing the initial PRP treatments with the correct treatment intervals, patients can start to notice:

  • REDUCTION in the amount of hair loss, hair fall and shedding.  Remember, it is natural to experience hair fall to 20-50 hairs per day.  Therefore, it is impossible to stop the shedding and hair loss, however after completing the initial 4 x PRP treatments with the correct treatment intervals, and providing you have not altered your consumption of any other treatments prior to commencing the PRP treatments, you should start to notice a reduction in the amount of hair loss/fall or shedding.   
  • IMPROVEMENTS to scalp health.  Visibly less dandruff and scalp initiations.
  • THICKER + FULLER HAIR, for some people, may START to occur soon after completing the initial 4 x treatments, for some clients they may not notice fuller hair until after they have completed 9-12mths worth of PRP treatments as per the recommendations we provide to each person.  When you first start to experience fuller hair, your hair starts to feel as though they are growing more erect.  When hair thins, it is common to see the hair growing weaker and less upright.  After completing the 4 x initial PRP treatments with the correct treatment intervals, you hair will start to subtly feel fuller because the hair starts to grow more erect and upright.  
  • FASTER Hair Growth, this was witnessed by patients who shave their head.  Prior to completing the PRP for Hair Loss Treatments with the correct treatment intervals, the patients found that they needed to shave their head 1-2 weeks SOONER than they did prior to receiving the PRP for Hair Loss Treatments.

 

PRP is like fertiliser – the longer you continue to use it – the stronger and healthier your hair will become!

It is important to note that the results listed above, will continue to develop and enhance over time.  For example, our before and after photos in our PRP for Hair Loss gallery all received PRP for Hair Loss Treatments for a minimum 12 months before they achieved the results shown.  Remember, your hair grows slowly.  Therefore PRP requires time to grow thicker, healthier and fuller hair.  The best thing about PRP is that PRP requires NO DAILY DRUGS or CHEMICALS (as compared with finasteride and minoxidil hair loss treatments).

Notice the first before and after photo below.  The first photo shows the patient with longer hair and the hair has commenced becoming grey.   The second photo is 2 years later, the hair is shorter and the patient has coloured their hair to conceal their grey hairs.   The third photo shows the patient a further 9 months into the future, and this time the hair is thicker, fuller and it has also been coloured to hide the grey hair as well.   This patient ONLY received PRP treatments from Great Directions and also used the Bosley Professional Shampoo and Conditioner combined with the skin needling roller and the Great Directions Aloe Vera Gel.  No Finasteride, Minoxidil, Hair Transplants and no Lasers were used by this patient from November 2012 to August 2015.

Then after completing the initial 4 x treatments:

After completing the initial 4 x PRP Treatments with the correct treatment timings, clients have the choice to:  

  • MAINTAIN the results the patient has experienced so far – treatments every 2-3 months apart
  • ENHANCE the results the patient has experienced so far – treatments every 1-2 months apart

 

What considerations need to be made when reviewing treatment timings?

In order to see improvements and benefits as a result of doing our PRP for Hair Loss Treatments, it is important to understand that the MORE thoroughly a patient prepares for their upcoming PRP treatment = the more likely the patient will experience improvements FASTER than a patient who does not prepare themselves as well. 

However, please remember, if you have genetic hair loss, each person’s genetic predisposition to hair loss will depend on the below factors:

  • DIET what you eat and drink in the 48hrs leading up to your PRP treatment is likely to sit within the PLASMA of your blood.  A Diet that includes foods that are highly refined, fatty or oily, contains a lot of salt or sugar etc and Drinks such as soft drinks, alcohol, not-fresh juices – are NOT RECOMMENDED.  The ideal diet consists of lean proteins, fresh fruit and vegetables combined with plenty of water (2-3L per day) is preferred.  Patients who follow these recommendations regarding diet and hydration levels are more likely to notice improvements as compared with someone who does not follow these recommendations.
  • MEDICATIONS:  Are you currently using or consuming any other hair loss treatment to assist with preventing further hair loss?  If so, and you have been consistent with its usage, then you may start to see improvements as compared with someone who is not.  
  • MEDICATIONS cont. If you have stopped or discontinued a previous hair loss treatment BEFORE completing the initial 4 x PRP Treatments with the correct treatment intervals, this may result in you require MORE than the initial 4 x treatments spaced 1-4 weeks apart.  Each person is uniquely different, and during a hair loss consultation we will be able to recommend the optimum treatment intervals based on your situation.
  • SPEED/RATE OF HAIR LOSS:  However, another factor is the speed and rate of hair loss.  A person with a steady-to-slow rate of hair loss is more likely to notice improvements BEFORE someone who is experiencing rapid or -to- fast hair loss and shedding.
  • OTHER MEDICAL CONDITIONS: Pre-existing medication conditions may also increase the time it takes for you to start noticing improvements to the health of your hair.  Known conditions include diabetes, blood pressure, high blood cholesterol levels, thyroid issues, liver or kidney issues, dermatitis or rosacea issues, stress levels, iron levels, hormone imbalances, chronic inflammation, blood platelet dysfunction issues, menopause, child birth, vitamin deficiencies etc.  However, having any of these issues does not necessarily rule you IN or OUT of PRP Treatment suitability,  it is however something that may require you to do more treatments before experiencing improvements to your hair or skin.    

The above points are only SOME of the factors that need to be considered when considering how many PRP treatments you will need before experiencing improvements to the health of your hair or to see improvements to your face and skin.
