Numbing before PRP injections
We use a small amount of lidocaine before the PRP and with this our patients feel absolutely no pain. It does not affect the result of the PRP treatment at all. If you have any concerns I would suggest asking your doctor why they do or do not use any form of anesthesia.
Dear Allie5000:We are now mixing a little lidocaine with the PRP in the syringe. This makes the procedure nearly painless, a huge improvement over the prior protocol. This has not interfered with the response to treatment in any way. All the best, Dr. Clark
PRP Injections and Numbing
Thank you for your question! Different offices have different protocols for PRP injections. We provide injections of local anesthetic prior to the PRP injections. This makes for a much better experience for our patients. As always, be sure to consult with your hair expert about your concerns. Best of luck to you!
PRP treatment should be comfortable
Hi. We routinely offer topical numbing cream and/or local anesthetic injections to patients and have not seen any interference with the hair growth. There are other techniques that provide comfort that do not include a cream or injection, so before your next treatment, ask your plastic surgeon what else they can offer. Being more comfortable, a more thorough treatment will be possible.

We do not numb the area, injections in the scalp are rarely painful at all if done with proper technique. Best, Dr. Emer.
Topical Anesthetic prior to PRP? ENGLEWOOD Cliffs NJ
In my opinion, using a topical anesthetic prior to injecting with PRP is optional. Approximately 20 to 25% of our patients decide to have a topical anesthetic. We like to use a Zimmer chiller prior to injection. Patients are usually comfortable with this technique. There is great variation in the amount of pain with PRP injection. The difference is based upon the level of injection and technique used. Find a PRP expert. GOOD LUCK.
