How Long Should You Wait Until Your Next PRP Injection?
Hair loss is a distressing reality for millions of people. In fact, more than 80 million individuals in the United States are experiencing some form of hair loss. Our specialists at ENT Facial Plastics and Sleep Disorder Center are dedicated to state-of-the-art hair loss therapies, including platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy. This treatment option uses your own regenerative abilities to deliver hair-restoring, confidence-boosting results by stimulating new growth and reducing loss.

What is PRP therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy can slow down hair loss, stimulate new hair growth, and improve the quality of your existing hair. Better yet, PRP does all these things using the body’s natural biological processes.
Here’s how it works: we first harvest a bit of your blood, then purify it in a centrifuge. Once the most nutritive compounds have been separated, we inject this ultra-pure substance into the scalp. Platelet-rich plasma is called such because it includes platelets, a clotting component found in blood, and plasma, the liquid part of blood. And by introducing these biological factors directly into the scalp, many men and women can enjoy improved outcomes and the confidence-boosting effects of minimally invasive hair restoration.
Additionally, the nonsurgical approach means there’s no downtime and no recovery because there’s nothing to recover from. Neither is there any scarring, as the treatments are quick and easy. Plus, the results can be long-lasting (though follow-up treatments may be necessary after a certain period) and look natural. And by targeting the root cause of balding, PRP therapy could provide a fundamental treatment option.
How long should you wait before your next PRP injection?
Your most effective PRP routine depends on multiple factors, including the level of your hair loss. Generally, patients receive their PRP treatments 4 – 6 weeks apart, though your custom-tailored treatment plan may differ slightly. Multiple sessions are needed to reap the full rewards, and it may take some time to see the new hair growth. Each session will take about 60 minutes to complete, so it’s recommended that you set aside the appropriate time when scheduling your appointment.
But have no worries; this is not considered a painful process – patients may experience a bit of discomfort, though this dissipates quickly, so no sedation options are necessary. Additionally, PRP therapy can combat various forms of hair loss, so if you’d like to see new growth, slow down thinning or balding, and do it using the body’s innate capacities, you may be a great candidate for PRP. We’re also proud to provide a number of other effective, safe, clinically backed hair restoration techniques, including follicular unit extraction (FUE) and follicular unit transplantation (FUT).
