PRP is very helpful after a Hair Transplant. We recommend after Hair Transplants to come back every 8 months for a PRP treatment. That is an effective way to maintain the hair for best results.
Congratulations on completing your hair transplant surgery and
initial PRP session.It has been my
experience that it can be beneficial for patients to continue PRP after hair
transplants, but it can vary from patient to patient.If you are a good candidate for PRP, I would
recommend scheduling a minimum of 3 additional sessions spaced about 6-8 weeks
apart.If you continue to see results, I
would suggest sticking to the 3 session treatment plan for maintenance.I hope this is helpful.
Thanks for your question.It
is my experience that PRP after a hair transplant can be beneficial.I would advise that if you are going to do
more PRP that you would do at least 3 treatments spaced about 6-8 weeks apart
for the best potential results.I hope
Different Clinics have different Protocols for administering PRP Therapy. It is always better to deliver loading dose followed by maintenance treatment. After an Initial loading dose for three months ( three sittings), it is better to evaluate the patient at three months and then decide the further schedule of PRP depending upon the individual response of the person.
In my opinion, PRP treatment requires a loading dose followed by maintenance treatment. The duration of activity of PRP after a loading dose is four to six months. Considering that your last treatment was one year ago, I would recommend a series of three or four monthly sessions followed by a 4 month follow up visit. At each visit, the amount of decrease in hair loss, increase in hair thickness and regrowth needs to be evaluated. Using these parameters, the treatment course may be varied. Patients who with hair transplants do extremely well with PRP injections. Seek an expert in PRP. Ask to see photos. Hope this helps. Good luck.
There is a differing opinion on the frequency of PRP for hair loss. Some patients benefit from monthly injections for 3 months and then a follow-up in six months to re-evaluate. Others need more treatments. Each case has to be determined on a case by case basis. Please consult an expert. Best, Dr. Green
