The method of PRP preparation for the face is essentially the same as the hair growth treatment. The GLOFINN system requires approximately 36ml of blood to be taken from the patient and after centrifuging the PRP, the excess water is removed with the unique plasma filter concentrating the PRP to approximately 8-12ml ready for injection. This system is user friendly and is supported by a good treatment protocol.
Although research is lacking, it does appear that good results require aftercare advice to be followed for approximately 4 weeks post-procedure. There is no research at present to suggest patients should refrain from using topical treatments for hair loss after this procedure such as Regain, Alpecin or oral medication such as Finasteride.
The first signs of improvement are commonly reported at 4 weeks, although it is wise to advise patients not to expect any significant change for 3 – 6 months, which is usually when a visible result can be seen. However each patient is different and the level of improvement and results vary according to patient response and satisfaction depends as with all aesthetic procedures on patient expectations. Generally one treatment gives a successful result. However it is not uncommon to have a second session at 3 months for further improvement.
