After receiving hair loss treatment from the Center for Laser & Aesthetic Medicine, there are a few things you should be aware of to ensure that you get the most out of your experience.
After the PRP injections, wash your hair with spring water (just rinse) for the first couple of days, and then you can use something gentle like Baby Johnson shampoo. You may use some sort of regrowth shampoo such as Pura D’ or Gold. No blow drying, straightening, curling, or dye for one week following treatment. Also, after injections you should sleep with the head elevated, and you can use oils like peppermint, rosemary, cedar wood oil, which can stimulate blood flow for hair growth. Please do not cover your scalp after PRP injections so no hats of any kind. This allows for the scalp to breathe. For best results, no smoking and curtail sugar & carbs by 50% for one week after treatment.
It also helps to ensure that you return for any follow-up appointments recommended by your doctor in order to assess the effectiveness of the treatment and determine if additional care or modifications are needed.
Lastly, seek a dermatologist's advice if you experience scalp issues such as itching or redness after the procedure; these may be signs of an allergic reaction or infection. With these tips in mind, we hope that patients feel empowered to take control of their own health!
