PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) stimulates hair growth and encourages healing after having a hair transplant procedure
PRP was originally used in sports medicine to treat injuries and persistent problems like tennis elbow, and in recent times skin clinics use PRP to rejuvenate skin. The hair loss industry has also recognised the qualities of PRP and now use the treatment to combat hair loss and aid post-operative healing.
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.
PRP can do a number of things for your scalp and hair as platelets within blood plasma contain a large number ‘growth factors’. These growth factors when injected into the scalp will stimulate stem cells, promoting the formation of new blood vessels, thus increasing irrigation and allowing nutrients to reach the hair follicles.
At our clinic, the injections are not done under local anaesthetic but some freezing of the area might be used. The actual injections into the scalp take just a few minutes. The entire process from taking the blood, separating the plasma and finally administering the injections takes around 30 minutes to complete.
The key benefits of PRP treatment...
- Enrich hair follicles, and help to revitalise dormant hair follicles, stimulating new hair growth.
- Assist partially transected follicles in the donor area at the sides and back of the head as well as reviving hairs.
- Aid healing in the recipient area in the growth of the newly implanted hairs.
- Reduce trauma, inflammation, erythema (redness); and the formation of scabs and helps the donor areas dermis and epidermis heal faster.
