Can I have a prp treatment done before doing hair transplant?

 And what would be best time to get the treatment done prior to transplant ( 1 or 2 day or 1 week)?

PRP for Hair before transplant

I believe both would be excellent and you would see thicker fuller hair.

PRP Prior to Hair Transplant

Thanks for your question!  Yes, you can absolutely get a PRP treatment done prior to a hair transplant.  In fact, I would recommend it!  I like to perform PRP scalp injections at the patient's preoperative appointment, which is usually about 2 weeks prior to the hair transplant procedure.  This sets up a nice recipient site for the grafts to make themselves at home!  Best of luck!
