Hair Regrowth Therapy

Platelet-Rich-Plasma


Service Description

Androgenic alopecia is a common, chronic hair loss disorder. It is characterized by progressive hair loss, affecting both sexes. It affects up to 80% of white men and 40% of women. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is an innovative approach to treating male and female hair loss and hair thinning. It is a non-surgical treatment to help hair regrowth. The process involves taking a blood sample from the patient and placing the blood into a centrifuge machine. The centrifuge spins the blood at very high, carefully calibrated speeds so that the blood can separate into its different compartments. The plasma (clear-yellow liquid) contains tiny blood cells called platelets which are vital for growth and repair. The separated plasma containing a high concentration of platelets is then carefully extracted and injected back into the scalp. Once in the scalp, the platelets release the growth factors which help repair, vascularize and strengthen the hair follicles. A PRP injection is a low-risk procedure and does not usually cause major side effects. The procedure involves a blood draw, so you should make sure you are hydrated and have eaten beforehand to prevent feeling lightheaded. After the procedure, you may experience some soreness and bruising at the injection site. Because PRP injections are made up of your own cells and plasma, the risk of an allergic reaction is much lower than with other injectable medications Does it hurt? Every patient has a differently level of pain tolerance so each person responds differently. The PRP solution can cause a mild stinging sensation in some people so it is often given with local anaesthetic to help reduce the discomfort.
