Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP therapy is a technique that uses your own growth factors, re-targeting them to a specific area of concern to encourage the skin and hair to repair and regenerate.
In the case of hair loss, PRP will re-stimulate the hair follicles to grow new hair. The treatment will only work on existing hair as long as there’s a visible follicle and the PRP can thicken other hair around it to improve your overall appearance.
There are many types of PRP to choose, from, and several methods of creating the gel. You can trust us to use the best products and technology.
This is good treatment for both men and women who are starting to notice their hair has started to thin.
PRP involves extracting platelets from a blood sample. We put the sample in a centrifuge and spin it, which separates the red blood cells from the platelet-rich plasma. Then we use a very fine needle to inject the plasma back into your scalp. The platelets release the growth factors, which encourages the surrounding cells to grow, which in turn stimulates the repair of your hair, increases its volume, and rejuvenates its growth.
We can give you multiple injections several times in multiple locations to provide a good overall improvement.
This treatment uses your own natural platelets. So there’s no risk of rejection. Because we spin your blood inside a closed sterile system there’s is no risk of contamination. This system is used in major teaching hospitals to treat burns and help wounds repair, so it is very safe.
There are few side effects. Straight after your treatment, you can get mild bruising and swelling where we injected the PRP. You can also get some tenderness but this and the other side effects should disappear within a few days.
It usually takes a few weeks for the results of the PRP therapy to become visible. But 2-3 treatments should last as long as 18 months.
You will see results after the second treatment.
