New Jersey’s PRP – Your questions on the procedure and costs Answered
Posted on November 22, 2016
What’s and How’s of New Jersey’s PRP Therapy Procedure
The PRP procedure will begin with a nurse drawing between 60 and 100 ml of blood. While you relax in a comfortable lounge chair, the nurse will run the blood through a centrifuge where it will be spun for 15 minutes. The spinning separates all of the different components of blood, including the platelet rich plasma. The PRP part is removed while the rest of the blood is discarded.
The second part of the procedure involves transferring the PRP to the scalp. Micro-needling is performed on the area of the scalp where hair loss or hair thinning is occurring. Micro-needling is where a roller instrument uses very small needles to slightly penetrate the skin. This process stimulates the healing process in the scalp because it believes it has endured trauma.
When the micro-needling is finished, the PRP is injected into the scalp in the same area. New hair growth will begin to be seen over the following several weeks.
Cost of PRP Therapy
NJ PRP Therapy is a customizable treatment that will be unique to each individual patient because the treatment is tailored to the specific type of hair loss and extent of hair loss. Dr. Rapaport will design a treatment plan and discuss cost during consultation meetings.
Although there are no restrictions to daily activities after PRP therapy treatment in our New Jersey based clinic, it is recommended that patients avoid sun exposure and using chemicals on their hair including relaxers, color and bleach. As soon as the micro-needling area is fully healed, styling products and sun exposure can resume.
During consultation, the doctor will go over post-treatment instructions. This will cover proper care for the treated area and hair as it begins to grow in. To ensure best results, it is best not to vary from the instructions provided by the doctor.
