The procedure is simple and quite quick. First of all, after an initial consultation with a GRL MD physician, a standard blood sample is taken. This sample is then centrifuged to separate the plasma and platelets from other blood components.
The PRP is then injected into the scalp at several points. At this stage, an anesthetic cream may also be applied to the scalp to maximize patient comfort. You can resume your activities immediately afterwards.
You may notice some redness and slight bruising after the procedure, which will disappear very quickly. You should also refrain from dyeing your hair or using products that are aggressive for the hair and scalp in the days following the session.
For a very noticeable lack of hair, stimulation is more complicated and sometimes impossible. Indeed, PRP stimulation can only be performed if there is an existing bulb.
Generally, 5 sessions spaced one month apart are required to achieve optimal and long-lasting results. An annual maintenance session is recommended to preserve the effects of PRP.
