Prior to a Seattle hair restoration consultation, many patients have not heard of PRP hair restoration or platelet rich plasma. Due to this, many wonder: is PRP hair restoration safe? This is understandable if unfamiliar with the non-invasive nature of the procedure.
PRP hair restoration is widely considered a safe procedure. The patient’s blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge to isolate the platelet rich plasma. No other materials are introduced during the process of preparing the PRP. This results in an extremely low rejection rate for PRP injections. It is also unlikely to have an allergic reaction to the PRP since it comes from the patient’s body.
Furthermore, the injections themselves carry little risk. Similar to a routine vaccine or injection, PRP hair restoration is no more invasive than these every day procedures. PRP injections are low risk and patients rarely experience any complications. Some side effects common to injections like swelling, redness, tightness, and itching do sometimes occur, but should subside quickly.
