    Lightbulb DR. Carlos K. Wesley: Can PRP "Jump Start" Stunted Hair Growth

    This 27-year-old man had undergone a follicular unit extraction (FUE) procedure at another practice one year ago. He grew frustrated that a significant number of the grafts remained as stubble even a full year after the procedure.

    He, therefore, had a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) series at our office. The results can be seen a few months later both in magnified form as well as globally.

    While seemingly every clinic has their own protocol for the frequency of PRP treatments (some claim every month, others every 3, and others one-and-done), I think that it makes the most sense to wait at least six months after having had surgical hair restoration before attempting to accelerate or stimulate further growth with a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) session.

    To my knowledge there is no clear data to support this, however. It has been demonstrated that newly-transplanted hairs continue to come in for the first time even 18 months after a hair transplant. So, my preference (as was the case with this patient) is to wait well over a year after a surgery before embarking on any further intervention.
