What is Platelet-rich Plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a type of blood plasma that has a higher concentration of platelets than what is typically found in blood. Platelets are a component of blood that are involved in the clotting process and also contain proteins called growth factors that can help with tissue repair and healing.

Platelet-rich Plasma has been used in a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures to promote healing and stimulate the growth of new cells. It is commonly used in treatments for sports injuries, as well as in hair restoration and facial rejuvenation procedures.

In these procedures, PRP is typically injected into the area being treated in order to stimulate the growth of new cells and promote tissue repair.

Why Platelet-rich Plasma?

Platelets are rich in growth and healing factors both of which can help to regenerate areas where hair loss has begun.

What we do after the Platelet-rich Plasma is extracted?

Platelet-rich Plasma is injected over the entire scalp under local anaesthesia focusing on areas of hair thinning and hair loss. Once all the Platelet-rich Plasma is injected the process is complete. A session of PRP normally takes up to one hour with no downtime.

If you are deemed a suitable candidate for Platelet-rich Plasma treatment then we normally recommend booking 3 sessions for loading over a period of 8-12 weeks and then consider maintenance therapy of singular sessions annually.
