How Many PRP Sessions Do I Need for Hair Regrowth?

Hair loss or hair thinning is a widespread concern that millions of people are experiencing worldwide. The most common type of hair loss is known as androgenetic alopecia, also known as pattern baldness, which can occur in both men and women. In India, studies suggest that approximately 58% of men experience some degree of hair baldness by the age of 50. 

Hair baldness can affect an individual’s self-esteem and psychological well-being adversely. However, the advancement of medical science has introduced several effective treatments to combat hair loss and promote hair regrowth.

One such innovative treatment is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) Therapy, which is effective for almost all types of hair baldness. PRP is a non-surgical treatment in which platelet-rich plasma, derived from the patient’s blood, is injected into the scalp. This treatment increases blood flow to the hair follicles and promotes cell growth.

How many PRP sessions are needed for hair regrowth?

One of the major concerns of patients considering PRP therapy for hair loss treatment is the number of sessions required to attain hair growth.  The number of sessions differs from person to person depending on various factors, such as the extent of hair loss and overall health. Hence, PRP therapy is a customised treatment set according to the specific goals of the patient.

Generally, patients have to undergo three to four sessions at intervals of 5 to 6 weeks, during which the density and thickness of the hair gradually increase. To maintain the results, it is recommended to undergo one session every 4 to 6 months.

Is the result of PRP therapy permanent?

For most of our patients, they begin to see improvements in hair density and thickness after a few sessions. Around 6-12 months into the treatment, regular follow-ups are required. Having regular maintenance sessions are impoortant to sustain the benefits of PRP therapy.

Though the solution is temporary, the results can be long-lasting. Sticking to a healthy lifestyle and following a proper hair care routine can support long-term hair health.

Moreover, if the process is performed by a skilled and experienced doctor or surgeon, it increases the chances of success and longevity. The in-house cosmetic surgeon of ALCS Clinic, Dr Sunil Arora, has years of experience and an incredible record of successful surgeries and treatment options.

Is PRP therapy painful?

PRP therapy is a non-invasive and non-surgical process; therefore, it is pain-free. It is performed under local anaesthesia and is considered one of the safest ways to restore hair growth.

The process involves injecting a needle into the scalp; hence, minimal pain is expected, but that too is bearable. Moreover, as one’s blood is injected into the scalp, there are no risks of infectious diseases.

It is common for some patients to experience mild swelling and tenderness in the scalp. However, it lasts only 3 to 5 days and goes on its own.

What is better: PRP or a hair transplant?

Both PRP therapy and Hair transplant are effective hair restoration options, but the choice of which is best for an individual depends on individual needs, hair loss severity, and treatment goals.

Generally, doctors recommend hair transplant procedures for individuals suffering from substantial balding or hair thinning across the scalp. It helps to cover bald patches and receding hairlines more effectively. Moreover, those experiencing genetic hair loss, known as female or male pattern baldness, should also consider a hair transplant.

On the other hand, PRP therapy is more suitable for those suffering from alopecia areata and traction alopecia (both are conditions of hair loss). PRP therapy would be ideal for you if you want to strengthen your existing hair, promote thick and natural hair growth, and reduce hair fall.

Who is a good candidate for PRP hair restoration treatment?

PRP hair treatment is perfect for those seeking a non-invasive, non-surgical hair loss solution. PRP hair therapy is ideal if you are in the early stages of hair loss. This therapy is usually considered ineffective for those with significant balding as it fails to revive hair follicles that have been dormant for a long time.

At ALCS Clinic, our team of experts helps patients understand their hair loss condition and which treatment option would be more suitable.

How much does PRP therapy cost?

PRP hair restoration involves at least three sessions at an interval of 5 to 6 weeks, followed by maintenance treatments at least twice a year. The average cost of PRP treatment in India ranges from INR 4,500 TO 15,000 for every session.

The cost also depends on various factors, such as the type of procedure, equipment required, area or location of the clinic, infrastructure and advanced facilities available in the clinics, the expertise of the surgeon, etc.
