General Frequently Asked Questions

PRP involves drawing blood from an arm vein and spinning it in a specialised centrifuge. The blood’s other elements are divided from the platelets. To increase the effects, the platelets are mixed with a unique substrate. This is then injected into the sore or uncomfortable location. Over the course of a few weeks, as healing progresses, the pain should subside.

Patients who receive PRP injections report a range of discomfort from mild to moderate, though everyone has a different threshold for pain. After drawing blood from an arm vein using a needle, the actual injection is carried out with a smaller needle (s).

The majority of procedures will take 20 to 30 minutes to perform, depending on how many places are being treated.

The process that results in typical baldness, known as thinning, can be stopped or reversed using PRP.

For those who are unable to utilize other forms of treatment, platelet rich plasma offers an additional method of promoting hair growth. For instance, it might be helpful if a person cannot use finasteride or is not a candidate for a hair transplant. It is also helpful for treating crown thinning when a hair transplant may not be the best option.

We adopt the Advanced PRP approach, a method that enables the most potent dose of active biologic factors to be delivered. A BCS physician performs the treatments, which last for around 30 minutes. The physicians at BCS will make sure that your particular type of hair loss has the ability to benefit from PRP and, if necessary, they will also present you with alternative options like Hair Transplant or Hair Fixing.

Typically, it takes patients 3 to 6 months to notice benefits. Response times, however, could vary.

Where there is already thinning hair, it works best.

You must have your blood drawn, and there can be some short-term swelling in the area that was treated. Even though we are using your own plasma, platelet rich plasma doesn’t always work to promote hair growth, despite how harmless it appears to be.

Many patients don’t experience anything, but you might encounter some very brief discomfort and swelling.
