It’s part two of answering our most commonly asked PRP Hair Restoration questions, as answered by Plastic Surgeon Dr.Toni Zhong MD, FRCS(C), the Co-Founder of BZ Skin and Hair Clinic.

5)Are the results permanent?

As with any aspect with the body, maintenance is key. Dr.Zhong recommends a single “booster” treatment to sustain and renew your results on average once every six months.  Each individual is different with a different hair cycle and growth potential, and this is a decision that Dr. Zhong makes with each patient after reviewing his/her results.   

6)Will my hair be like it “used to be”?

Realistic expectations for hair restoration are important.  As we age, our hair will tend to thin.  It is not possible to restore the volume and condition of our hair to when we were young adults. However seeing noticeable hair regrowth while also preserving your current  hair is ultimately our goal with PRP.   

Another common question is  ”Will my family and friends notice?”

Our answer: We often judge ourselves much more harshly than the people who care about us. Perception can often be biased, which is one of the reasons we take photos each and every time you come in for your sessions. We want you to see results when you come in for your “after” follow up consultation as well!  But with any luck, your friends and family will start commenting on your youthful appearance associated with thicker hair.  

7)Will this help my hair grow long? Can I “ditch” the hair extensions after PRP?

This treatment is ideal for thickening the hair and stimulating the scalp to encourage new hair growth. Damage from hair extensions is extremely common, as constant, tight pulling of the scalp can damage hair follicles over time. While it is not realistic to create “Rapunzel status” hair with PRP,  it is possible to achieve fuller and more luxurious hair with a series of PRP treatments.  

9)Will my family and friends notice?

We often judge ourselves much more harshly than the people who care about us. Perception can often be biased, which is one of the reasons we take photos each and every time you come in for your sessions. We want you to see results when you come in for your “after” follow up consultation as well!  But with any luck, your friends and family will start commenting on your youthful appearance associated with thicker hair.  

10)Who performs the treatment?

Your PRP for Hair restoration  will be performed by our Plastic Surgeon Dr.Toni Zhong MD, FRCS(C), the Co-founder of BZ Skin and Hair Clinic.  Dr. Zhong will be assisted by her trained, accredited  support staff to ensure that you have the most seamless experience with us. Each miniscule injection is done by hand by Dr.Zhong herself, carefully selecting each area for a truly tailored treatment.
