How long for hair regrowth with PRP

Generally speaking, hair regrowth in men is more difficult and takes multiple injections at 6-8 week intervals.  It could take 5 or 6 months at least to see appreciable results and sometimes a year.  Determining factors are the amount and cause of hair loss, additional treatments for hair and scalp used in combination and the general state of health.  It is usually less difficult to treat women but the cause needs to be determined and corrected.  In other words, if traction or chemical treatments are causing the hair loss continuation of these causes will work against hair regrowth.

What will be the results from my PRP hair regrowth treatment and how soon will they be visible?

You will start to notice results in about 4 to 8 months after your PRP hair regrowth procedure. This follows the normal hair growth cycle. With six to twelve months most patients will see remarkable improvement in volume and quality of their hair growt

Hair continues to thicken the next 12 to 15 months. And results can last for months or at time even years.

How long will it take to see results after PRP

PRP works by stimulating hair follicles.  Existing follicles are strengthened. Follicles at rest may be stimulated to growing new follicles. At first, you may notice your hair is no longer shedding thus looks more dense. Over 3-6 months, you may notice new hair growth.

One treatment of PRP may induce change, though sometimes multiple treatments are needed. A video of one of my patient's journey over 6 months with PRP is included. Of note, she dyed her hair differently half way through the treatment, but the improvement in hair density is exciting nonetheless.

It should also be noted that PRP may be used in conjunction with other non-surgical and surgical hair restoration.

The effect of PRP may dissipate after 4-6 months, so maintenance is recommended.

Hope this response and video helps you.

Good luck from Mahattan.

PRP for hair loss- how long to see effects?

It takes 3 to 5 months before the effects of PRP are seen. This is similar time delay for any hair loss treatment.

You may not see any results after PRP. It all depends on your exam and treatment goals. See a doctor for a proper exam.
