The survival rate of hair follicles dramatically increases as the platelets stimulate the hair cycle’s anagen phase or what many would call the growth phase. The anagen phase could last anywhere between two to six years before going to the catagen phase which is when the hair begins to shrink.
This regenerative therapy mainly consists of the platelets which are patient-derived and act as the healing agents. There are no less than 7 active growth factors in PRP. There is no introduction of chemicals that could lead to side effects. What the growth factors ideally do is mimic cells and encourage natural hair growth.
The procedure is minimally invasive and unlike surgery, the healing process is quite fast. Since PRP encourages faster cell growth, the results of the procedure are fast as well. You can begin to see evidence of new hair growth in as little as one to two months though the best results are identifiable in just a few months. The full effects of hair restoration are clear within a year.
