The timeline for seeing results after Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment can vary. However, here are some general guidelines:

Initial Changes: Some people notice subtle improvements within a few weeks after their first PRP session. These changes may include reduced hair shedding and increased hair thickness.
Visible Results: Most significant results are noticeable after three to six months. During this time, hair follicles undergo the growth phase, and you’ll observe increased hair density.
Multiple Sessions: Remember that PRP is usually administered in a series of sessions (usually three to six sessions), spaced about four to six weeks apart. Consistent treatment over several months is essential for optimal outcomes.

Patience: Be patient and realistic. Hair growth is gradual, and individual responses vary. Some people may see faster results, while others may take longer.
Remember to consult with a healthcare provider to assess your specific situation and set realistic expectations.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has become a nonsurgical option for combating hair loss. While it may not be a one-size-fits-all solution, recent research suggests that PRP injections can increase hair growth and density in people with hereditary hair thinning or baldness1. Here’s what you need to know:

How PRP Works: PRP therapy uses a person’s own blood to promote hair growth. Platelets in the blood contain growth factors, which play a role in cell repair and tissue regeneration. When injected into the scalp, PRP delivers a concentrated dose of these growth factors, stimulating hair follicles and prolonging the growth phase of the hair cycle.

Research Findings:

  • In a study involving participants with androgenic alopecia (hereditary baldness), three PRP injections over three months led to significant increases in hair density within six weeks.
    A review of 12 clinical trials found that PRP therapy improved hair density and thickness in male and female participants in 84% of the studies.
    While individual responses may vary, most people require several PRP sessions four to six weeks apart for optimal results.


  • PRP tends to be more effective in the early stages of hair loss, where follicles can still be stimulated.
    Complete baldness with significantly damaged or absent follicles may limit the benefits of PRP.
