Platelet Rich PlasmaPRP Injections

How Can You Tell If PRP Is Working?

Platelet rich plasma injections usually do not provide immediate relief or results. It takes time for the PRP to induce the healing process and repair the skin and hair follicles. This can understandably make some patients anxious and wonder if it is working. Let’s look at the question, “How can you tell if PRP is working?”

Often, time is the best indicator of whether or not PRP is working. When it comes to PRP hair restoration, if you have not seen any meaningful results after about three or four sessions, it is likely that PRP is not the best option for you. However, other procedures may show sooner.

PRP injections for the under eyes tend to show some results sooner. While this may be subtle, it is not uncommon for the skin to look a little brighter and be overall better quality a few weeks after treatment. Otherwise, there is not tried and true way to tell if PRP is working.

If you have concerns, your provider can always evaluate your results and the treatment areas. To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 206-279-2112. You can also reach out online via chat or contact form.
