Advantages of PRP Therapy against hair loss are:
The procedure is non surgical
The procedure lasts for about 60 to 75 mins
Natural looking end results
With a small needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma is injected into your scalp. After which the growth factors in your blood cells allow for stimulation and hair growth.
Our blood plasma (PRP) contains active growth factors which can promote hair growth. Helping to restore one’s confidence, the end result is a fuller, healthier looking head of hair.
The cost of PRP hair treatment can be considerable, as more sessions may be needed to obtain the desired result. PRP is also being used in conjunction with some hair transplant procedures.
Does it hurt?
In the past some patients experienced PRP Hair Loss Therapy as uncomfortable and sometimes painful when carried out under topical anesthetic. If you wish, the procedure can be carried out under intravenous sleep sedation or general anesthetic. You will be fully asleep and will not notice the injections.
What are the 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.
Do I need to repeat this treatment?
Depending upon the patient’s individual needs and treatment plan, PRP treatment can be repeated until the desired result has been achieved. Our experience shows that regular PRP treatment every 3 to 6 months can be very beneficial.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: what is it and how does it work?
The doctor takes a little blood which is then treated in a centrifuge so that only the enriched cells or platelets (PRP) remain.
- The PRP or highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, including essential growth proteins, is injected into the scalp or areas to be treated using a special micro needle.
- It is possible to use PRP Hair Loss Therapy alone to promote hair growth or it can also be used in combination with hair transplant or restoration surgery.
