What is Hair PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical procedure for hair regrowth, best used for treating thinning hair and slowing or stopping the progression of hair loss.

PRP treatment can tackle both male/female pattern baldness and alopecia as it encourages the growth of existing hair follicles, making your hair appear fuller and healthier without resorting to surgery. It is therefore the most natural way to stimulate hair growth.

PRP benefits

  • Fuller and healthier natural-looking hair

  • Significantly increase of hair regrowth

  • Production of new healthy cells

  • Decreased hair dystrophy and burning or itching sensation

  • Can serve as a safe and effective treatment option in Alopecia areata (AA)

Procedure

PRP is prepared from an extract of your own blood.

  • PRP treatment will commonly last between 30 minutes and 60 minutes

  • To do this, 30 – 60 ml of blood is drawn from your arm

  • The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and separates the platelets from the rest of the blood components

  • 3 – 6 ml of platelet-rich plasma will then be extracted

  • The concentrated and growth factor-concentrated platelets are injected into the scalp via micro injections

 

There is no downtime for PRP so you can immediately return to your normal daily routine. It is recommended that strenuous activity and alcohol consumption is be avoided for 24 hours post procedure.
 

The results of PRP can usually be seen between two to three months post treatment. Depending on your type of hair loss, and the extent of the loss, PRP for hair restoration is usually recommended as a course of 3 to 6 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart. Then depending on your individual needs, a maintenance session once a year is usual.
