Have you heard about Elucell’s PRP hair treatments and are interested in learning more? Maybe you’re concerned about the state of your hair, and you’re looking for effective treatment. Perhaps you’ve heard of Elucell, and you’d like to know what treatments we offer. Either way, we’ve got you covered with this comprehensive FAQ on PRP hair treatment.
Who is a good candidate for PRP hair treatment?
Any individual can have a PRP consultation, and we’d certainly recommend you contact us if you have any hair loss related concerns. However the best candidate is someone whose hairlines are receding or whose hair is thinnest around the temples and top of head. While PRP hair treatment is effective in the vast majority of cases, treatment will be more effective if these signs are detected early.
Does PRP hair treatment work on the scalp?
PRP hair treatment primarily focuses on multiple areas of the scalp that are suffering from hair loss, promoting hair growth and strengthening each of the individual follicles that make up that area. Our medically qualified experts conduct thorough face-to-face consultations with prospective patients before deciding to administer any treatments to the scalp, in order to ensure that they will be effective.
What is the procedure for PRP hair treatment?
A small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood is then placed into a centrifuge, from which the platelet rich plasma is then separated. A topical anaesthetic cream is applied to the hair-loss affected areas of the scalp so that they can be appropriately numbed before the plasma is then injected into those areas. After the treatment is complete, we monitor your hair regrowth over the following weeks.
Does PRP hair treatment work for hair loss?
In just a few weeks following your first PRP treatment, you will experience a noticeable difference in hair thickness and a reduction in hair loss per day. The number of hair follicles per area increases as those weeks turn into months. With this increase, the quality of newly grown hair improves. With Trichoscan, we monitor the changes in your scalp to ensure the treatment is working.
How much blood is drawn for a PRP hair treatment injection?
It only takes a small amount of blood (between 15-30 mls). The reason for this is that PRP hair loss treatment has been designed to be as non-invasive as possible. This blood is then put into a centrifuge, which spins at the exact speed required to separate the platelets from the red and white blood cells. Afterwards, about 4-6 mls of platelet-rich plasma is extracted and injected into the treatment area.
Can PRP hair treatment grow new hair?
PRP hair treatment does grow new hair. Platelets make up one of the four primary components of blood (as well as red blood cells, white blood cells and plasma). These platelets contain growth factors that facilitate wound healing and the regeneration of tissue. Therefore, by drawing a few drops of blood from the patient, separating the platelets, and injecting the platelets into the scalp, we effectively stimulate the cells that regulate hair growth.
Does PRP hair treatment thicken hair?
PRP hair treatment does more than regrow hair. The stimulation of the dermal papilla cells in the scalp tissue actually strengthens your hair roots and repairs damaged hair follicles. This gives you hair a thicker, richer appearance.
Is PRP hair treatment for hair loss permanent?
PRP hair treatment results are effective. However the results of PRP hair treatment are not permanent unless you are able to reverse the cause of your hair loss in the first place. Therefore, it is recommended that, once you complete your initial PRP hair loss treatment package, you continue with a PRP session every 12 months to maintain those positive results.
Is PRP hair treatment painful?
Due to the fact that PRP hair treatment does not involve cutting skin or entering deeper tissues of the scalp, it is relatively painless. Topical anaesthetic creams are used to alleviate the pain associated with injections themselves.
Which is better: PRP hair treatment or hair transplant?
It is easy and non-invasive to treat hair loss with PRP, whereas hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that involves transferring skin from hair-bearing parts of the scalp to the balding or thinning areas.
Besides the regular risks associated with any type of surgery, such as bleeding, infection, scarring, etc, there are also risks unique to hair transplants, such as nerve damage, tissue death, and skin graft complications. Surgery typically involves long recovery periods, during which even the slightest complication could require additional surgical procedures.
What are the side effects of PRP hair treatment?
Due to the fact that our treatments are administered by qualified medical professionals, there is very little risk of experiencing side effects. Before any treatments are made, we consult with patients to determine if the process is right for them. PRP includes only the patient’s own blood, so any side effects are limited to tenderness around the injection site that lasts about 12 hours and an allergic reaction.
Can I wash my hair after PRP hair treatment?
A short recovery period is another advantage of the PRP hair treatment from Elucell. Washing and shampooing your hair can be resumed within a few hours without risking adverse effects on the treatment area.
What are the key benefits of PRP hair treatment for hair loss?
In addition to its ability to stimulate hair growth and promote a healthier scalp, PRP hair treatment has many other benefits centered on the ease and accessibility that accompany it. Besides promoting hair growth, the treatment is simple and painless for the patient.
What is the cost of PRP hair treatment?
There are three pricing options available for PRP hair loss treatment:
- 1 treatment = $250
- 5 treatments = $1,125
- 10 treatments = $2,000
Ideally, you should attend 6-12 treatments for optimal results. These pricing options give you the freedom to choose a budget and treatment plan that meets your needs. In addition, our PRP hair loss treatments come with a 100% money back guarantee in the unlikely event that you are not satisfied.
