PRP Treatment for Hair Loss
PRP stimulates hair growth. It decreases hair loss and increases hair volume and strength – and is all made possible by your own blood.
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy, or ‘PRP’ hair treatment works to stimulate hair growth and combat hair loss. It works by drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, and injecting or rubbing the blood into the scalp. because of this, PRP hair treatment is sometimes given the nickname ‘PRP Vampire’ therapy.
PRP is a non-surgical procedure with no side effects, available at our Regrow Hair clinic.
PRP therapy owes its name to the importance of the platelet cells. Platelets are tiny red blood cells that help with clotting; the healing process of wounds, and regeneration. Once blood is extracted from the patient, a centrifuge separates the plasma and the platelets from the rest of the blood cells. These platelets are then injected into a site with significant hair thinning, balding, or pattern baldness.
The advantages of PRP hair loss treatment
PRP treatment requires monthly treatments, with platelet-injections quarterly for maintenance. This makes PRP very convenient. But there are other advantages:
PRP treatment stimulates and strengthens the hair follicles to encourage hair growth. It also thickens existing hair. Visible results of hair regrowth typically come about within three months of starting treatment.
PRP is a non-surgical treatment. Only a small amount of blood is taken and not very often, so there’s no need to worry.
No time off work needed
PRP does not require any time off work, downtime, or recovery. Many of our patients simply drive home and return to their daily activities after treatment.
Take a look at the images on this page for some of the PRP success stories at our hair clinic.
PRP – What exactly happens?
A very small sample of blood, about 11ml, is needed from the patient. This is nothing out of the ordinary, and no different to getting a routine blood test. This blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge. A centrifuge spins the blood rapidly. This separates the platelets and the plasma from the red and white blood cells.
PRP and hair growth factors
PRP is a ‘stimulator’, meaning it works to stimulate the hair growth cycle. Other stimulators include topical Minoxidil and Low Level Laser Therapy.
Is PRP Safe?
The answer is: very. It is entirely safe to re-inject a patient’s own blood. The procedure is performed by our trained and qualified medical team in our sterile clinic treatment department and only takes about 10 minutes to prepare. And of course, all of the equipment we use is 100% disposable.
The PRP hair restoration method is similar in execution to the Facial PRP or ‘Vampire Facelift’ method of skin rejuvenation.
