Thank you for your question. We recommend PRP once a month for 3 months then once every 6-12 months. It is best to look at this as a treatment for hair loss, not a cure. You will need to maintain it with ongoing treatments. Seek out an expert in PRP for best results. Best of luck!
How long is PRP effective? Is it effective for 5, 10, 15 years or life time or effective for one year? (Photo)

Longevity of PRP for hair growth
Thank you for these questions, as they are the most asked questions for this hair growth stimulation procedure.
Best results are obtained by doing an initial series of 2 to 3 treatments spaced out five weeks between each treatment. Most patients will see some growth after the second treatment and some have shown visible growth after one treatment. I find better results are obtained when combining micro needling with the PRP injections and “Painting”. The micro needling creates channels through the upper layers of skin allowing the subsequent painted PRP to penetrate deeper.
After this initial series, best results are maintained with a touch up treatment once each year. I also recommend certain topical serums during the treatment phase which help with the growth.
As far as PRP continuing to stimulate hair growth lasting 5, 10 or fifteen years with one treatment…I have not seen this. Best,Robert H. Cohen, M.D.
