What Are The Steps of The PRP Procedure In West Palm Beach, FL?

The first step in any procedure is to schedule a consultation. This is the perfect time for asking any questions and answering any concerns you are having about the procedure itself. The sole purpose of the consultation is to make the experience as comfortable as possible for you.

During the procedure

  1. The first step in PRP Therapy procedure is donating blood to yourself. You will sit in a chair and a nurse will draw an ounce of blood from your arm. This blood will be placed in a special container that will run through a centrifuge. During this process, the centrifuge will spin the blood, which will separate the plasma divide it into the different components. The process takes about 15 minutes – after which, the nurse will use the concentrated platelets that are ready to be applied to the scalp. The concentrated platelets are PRP (PRP). These cells promote the hair growth and healing process in your scalp.
  2. The doctor will then apply a topical anesthetic to numb the areas of the scalp that will be receiving treatment.
  3. The PRP is introduced into the scalp in the same areas.
  4. The final stage of the therapy will be very quick. An occlusive dressing is applied to the scalp.

Care After the PRP Hair Procedure in West Palm Beach FL

The entire process of PRP Therapy in West Palm Beach should take approximately two hours depending on the degree of hair loss. There will be slight inflammation at the wound site, and mild pain or discomfort may occur where the PRP was introduced into the scalp. This will cause the area of the scalp to be tender to the touch for a few days. Hair Vista will send you home with a detailed care plan for ensuring optimal results of new hair growth.

A few restrictions will apply to every patient following the procedure. These restrictions include:

  • Avoid the sun, as well as exposure to chemicals and styling products until the healing process is 100%.
  • Do not take any anti-inflammatory medicine or blood-thinning medications like aspirin. This will interfere with the natural healing process of PRP.
  • Effects of PRP Therapy will happen over time and most patients will need yearly treatments to keep up the growth and regeneration of the hair follicles, especially if the hair loss is due to genetics.
  • PRP has very little complications and is considered to not pose any danger to allergy, hypersensitivity, or foreign-body reactions.
  • The success rates and degree of new hair growth will vary greatly from person to person; however, clinics that are currently using PRP Therapy are reporting success rates averaging 80%.
