What Is PRP Hair Restoration?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a medical procedure for hair restoration, leveraging the body's natural healing processes. In this treatment, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient, similar to a routine blood test. This blood is then processed in a centrifuge, a device that separates different components of the blood, to isolate the PRP, known for its healing properties. The concentrated PRP is then carefully injected into targeted areas of the scalp where hair growth is desired.

PRP therapy is considered a safe approach to hair restoration, as it utilizes the patient's own biological material, significantly reducing the risk of allergic reactions or compatibility issues. Additionally, unlike some surgical hair restoration methods, PRP therapy does not involve large incisions, thereby minimizing the risk of scarring. The effectiveness of PRP in promoting hair growth varies among individuals, and it is often recommended as part of a comprehensive approach to hair loss treatment.

What to Expect for Your PRP Hair Restoration

From the initial consultation to your final transformation, we’re with you at every stage of your hair loss treatment journey. Our friendly team ensures lines of communication are open at every stage—no question is unwarranted, and you’ll get unparalleled support the whole way.

Your PRP Hair Restoration Consultation

Your consultation is an important first step, as you will meet with a specialist who carefully carries out a hair evaluation, discusses any goals you may have, and reviews your medical history. You’ll be given the time and space to enquire about further questions and preferences before they craft a unique plan that addresses your needs. Our aim is to give you the confidence to move ahead and check that this treatment is right for you.

How to Prepare for Your PRP Hair Restoration

As the days grow closer to your first hair loss treatment, we work closely to guide you through every step, including advising you on any potential medication interactions, and what type of hair care products can be used or avoided while you get the treatments.

During Your PRP Hair Restoration

Once the blood of the patient has been drawn, a centrifuge is used to separate the PRP. Calcium Chloride is added in some systems to activate the platelets. Other brands do not activate the platelets believing the body will do it once it is injected or absorbed into the body. An injection or topical application is used to get the PRP into the scalp where there is hair loss. This injection stimulates the existing hair and promotes the growth of new hair.

You will also get a dose of Viviscal supplements to take over the course of three months. The whole process should take no longer than one hour for each session.

Depending on the severity of your hair loss, you may have treatments that span for six months or more. You’ll be able to check in with the team at every stage to ease your discomfort.

PRP Hair Restoration Aftercare & Recovery Timeline

Because Tressex treatment is relatively non-invasive, there’s no downtime or recovery time needed—meaning you can get along with your regular activities. However, the specialist will advise you on specific activities you should avoid straight after treatment to get optimal results. After the final treatment has been administered, you can expect full recovery after four to six weeks.

Am I a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Restoration?

To prevent potential complications, you will need to be in good general health to undergo hair loss treatment. If your hair loss has been progressing for a number of years without any improvements in hair density or length, you are also an ideal candidate.

How much does a PRP Hair Restoration cost in Chicago?
Hair loss treatments can vary depending on the length of the treatment if you need it for longer than three months. You’ll be able to get a better idea during your consultation at Impressions Face + Body.
Are there any PRP Hair Restoration Risks?
The specialist may advise against hair loss treatment if you have a history of alcohol and drug misuse or are a heavy smoker. There are also several health conditions that make you unsuitable for treatment. Side effects include an infection at the injection site, nerve injury, or blood vessel injury on the scalp.
How painful is a PRP Hair Restoration?
Because numbing cream is applied before the injection is administered, the treatment is relatively painless. Our specialists are experts in cutting-edge injection techniques, which can make the whole process seamless. Typically, there is little to no pain post-treatment.
How long do PRP Hair Restoration results last?
Depending on the severity of the hair loss, results can last for one to two years before repeat treatments may be required.
What procedures pair well with a hair loss treatment?
Additional procedures, like LED light therapy, pair well with our Tressex treatment as it helps to stimulate blood flow through the scalp, which aids regeneration. At Impressions Face + Body, you can add this treatment on top of your regular hair loss treatment.
