If you are looking for a safe, natural way to restore your skin or hair, platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy may be the answer. PRP therapy has been used successfully for cosmetic procedures, as it promotes wound healing and remodels tissue. PRP works gradually, so the results will continue to show several months after the initial treatment. But is the procedure permanent, and if not, how long do PRP therapy results last.
PRP therapy is an in-office procedure involving the use of platelet rich plasma (PRP), which is derived from a patient’s own blood. A small quantity of blood is taken from you and then processed to obtain the PRP. It is then injected into the areas that require rejuvenation, or in the scalp in the case of hair restoration.
Are PRP results Permanent?
The results of PRP are not permanent, so additional injections will be needed at specific intervals.
How long do PRP therapy results last?
- PRP for facial rejuvenation
How long the treatment lasts is influenced by factors such as skin type and age. However patients that undergo a series of treatments can expect those results to last for up to a year. After that time follow-up sessions will be needed every 6-12 months, in order to maintain the results.
- PRP for hair restoration
PRP is a promising restoration procedure for thinning hair, because it strengthens and stimulates the hair follicles. The effects of PRP in hair restoration last for about 4-6 months, but this often depends on the patient.
