PRP Therapy For Hair Growth

PRP is a relatively new and exciting approach to the treatment of hair loss!

Platelet-rich plasma is a concentration of platelets and plasma-derived from the patient’s own blood. In addition to white and red blood cells, PRP is a rich source of specialized proteins containing growth factors and cytokines, which can promote hair growth and healing.

 

Used for over a decade in orthopaedics to enhance healing after surgery and injuries, PRP is now being used to enhance hair growth by stimulating resting hairs to grow and thicken. 

PRP for hair loss is most commonly being used to treat a variety of types of loss such as pattern thinning, also known as androgenetic alopecia, in both men and women, as well as less common conditions such as alopecia areata (patches of balding) and frontal fibrosing folliculitis (a type of scarring hair loss.)

PRP for hair loss has been shown to be most effective for:

  • Those in the early stages of hair loss

  • Patients who are not viable candidates for surgery

  • Women who prefer to avoid hair surgery

  • Those who don’t have enough quality donor hair for a transplant

Frequently asked questions

What should I expect in the treatment?


A small sample of your blood is drawn, and then it is spun at a high rate of speed in a special centrifuge. This is done to separate the platelets from the other components of your blood. Your therapist then administers the concentrated PRP via a series of injections directly into the areas of your scalp where your hair is thinning. This only takes about 10 minutes, and with no downtime, so you can resume your regular activities right away following the procedure.




How many treatments will I need?


For hair loss, a minimum of 3 treatments is required in the first few months. After the first 3 treatments your therapist will assess your results and dicuss with you the appropriate treatment regimen to maximise your results.




What are the possible side effects?


Although side effects are uncommon they can occur. They are usually temporary and mild in nature. There may be redness and some tenderness on the first day that appears and some occasional bruising. The initial redness should subside by the second or third day. Some patients can experience some swelling, however, this should diminish within twenty-four to forty-eight hours. Most of our patients are able to go back to their regular daily activities after their treatment.




How long does It take to see results?


Hair regrowth from PRP therapy, like other hair restoration treatments, may take up to 8 months before you notice an improvement in hair density. But in time, the therapy will trigger your body’s natural healing processes, and you should start to see results.
For those who want faster results, hair transplant surgery is usually recommended.
