Is PRP Recommended After Hair Transplant?

Platelet rich plasma hair restoration is normally recommended for younger patients beginning to experience hair loss. However, it can be used in other circumstances such as helping restore hair following cancer treatment or for hairline restoration. Many surgeons are now performing PRP hair injections following hair transplants. Is PRP recommended after hair transplant?

Hair transplant surgery is often the last resort for cosmetic hair restoration. It can address larger areas of hair loss than any non-surgical method. However, it is not uncommon for doctors to recommend continuing non-surgical hair therapies such as medications, laser therapy, or PRP. 

In the case of PRP, it can help the healing in the area as well as repair damaged hair follicles. It can help hair come back quicker, thicker, and maintain the hair following surgery. While a hair transplant does last longer and has a lower chance of falling out, PRP prevents future hair loss following a transplantation procedure.
