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.
