Hair transplant surgery is a great option for patients in the more advanced stages of hair loss. At this point, PRP hair restoration may not provide the results patients desire. But, what about after surgery? Can PRP hair restoration help retain hair after transplant surgery?
The short answer is: yes! PRP hair restoration can contribute to continued hair retention and growth after hair transplantation. It is best to wait until hair grafts are fully secure and the scalp healed from surgery to begin PRP injection therapies. Due to the previous hair restoration surgery, patients seeking PRP after hair transplant will likely need only a couple touch up treatments per year. Although, this will vary based on the patient and is best determined during a consultation.
PRP hair restoration works by stimulating collagen production in the scalp. This can maintain the quality of hair follicles as well as repair damaged ones. While hair transplant surgery restores lost hair, it often cannot fully stop hair loss because the causes are usually genetic. Using PRP hair restoration after hair transplant can lead to reduced loss over time and overall slow down the rate of loss.
