Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Loss

Advantages of PRP Therapy

Advantages of PRP Therapy against hair loss are:

  • Simple, non-surgical procedure
  • Multiple Injections: procedure lasting approximately 30 minutes
  • Safe and reliable results
  • Very quick recovery period
  • Beautiful and above all extremely natural looking end results
  • Appropriate for Androgenic Alopecia (both male & female patterned age-related hair loss).

Natural Looking Results

With a thin needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Once injected, the growth factors within the PRP naturally stimulate hair growth.

PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women. It is a state-of-the-art, non-surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood.

Does it Hurt?

PRP injections can be uncomfortable, therefore a Zimmer Cooler and/or a topical anesthetic cream is sometimes used.

Are there Risks?

There is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP therapy because the enriched plasma has been

produced from the patient’s own blood. A concentrated amount of white blood cells make up part of the PRP which are the body’s natural defenders against infections. Infections are therefore extremely rare.

How Long Does a Treatment Take?

The actual procedure normally takes about 30 minutes, depending upon the areas being treated. However, you will need to arrive 30 mins before your appointment for your blood draw

How Does it Work?

A vial of your blood is drawn and then the blood is placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma from red blood cells.

The PRP or highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, including essential growth proteins, is injected into the scalp or areas to be treated using a small needle.

It is possible to use PRP Hair Loss Therapy alone to promote hair growth, or it can be used with other hair restoration medications/products and techniques when indicated in selected patients.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

Initially, PRP therapy for hair restoration requires 4 treatments, approximately 4-6 weeks apart to achieve successful hair growth.
