Hair Loss & Restoration FAQ's
1What Should I Expect During Treatment?
After an initial consultation, your nurse will take a blood sample from the arm. PRP is extracted in a special machine called a centrifuge. At Beautique Med Spa we have one of the best centrifuges available for Plasma extraction. Plasma extraction requires a very specific protocol to retrieve the highest concentration of PRP. Ensuring you are being treated by a qualified injector trained in plasma extraction will ensure you get the best quality plasma treatment. A combination of specific vitamins known for their hair growth properties is then added to the plasma. The target area for treatment is then cleansed with antiseptic and topical anesthetic cream is applied to reduce discomfort. The plasma is then loaded into a special PRP gun called the U225. Using this highly specialized PRP gun as opposed to regular syringes provides the patient with a much more comfortable and fast treatment. Patients report only slight discomfort with the use of the U225 Gun.
2How Long Does the Treatment Take?
The whole process, including consultation, takes approximately 1 hour.
3Is the Treatment Painful?
PRP for hair loss is a relatively comfortable treatment. A topical anesthetic is applied to the target area. I lidocaine solution is also added to the plasma in some cases to numb the area completely.
1Is There Any Downtime?
Following your PRP procedure, you may notice a slight swelling of the treated area. The area may feel tender and warm to the touch. As the scalp is the target area most of the slight swelling and redness is well hidden, and most patients return to their regular daily activities in 12-24 hours.
