What is PRP?

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP), also known as autologous conditioned plasma, is a concentrate of platelet-rich plasma protein derived from whole blood, centrifuged to remove red blood cells.

As a concentrated source of blood plasma and autologous conditioned plasma, PRP contains several different growth factors and other cytokines that can stimulate healing of soft tissue and joints. The indications for use include sports medicine and orthopedics or Dermatology (Hair growth and skin rejuvenation).

 

 

How it works?

 

Step One 

Blood is drawn. This is usually from the patients arm.

The blood is then spun in the centrifuge at high speed to separate the blood.

 

Step Two 

Several minutes later, the blood would have been separated into 3 layers.

Platelet Rich Plasma - Platelet Poor Plasma - Red Blood Cells

 

Step Three   

Now one of our nurses will inject the PRP into the parts of the scalp which require treatment.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Platelet-rich plasma therapy is an effective hair loss treatment on its own as it provides your hair follicles with a boost of nutrients that boost its healing process.

It reactivates hair regrowth because of the growth factors on hair follicle stem cells that provide stimulation.

If combined with your hair transplantation surgery, these platelet-derived growth factors will maintain and enhance the viability of hair follicles, speed up healing time, and stimulate maximum hair growth.

Platelet-rich plasma injections will significantly boost the effects of your hair transplant surgery because it supports hair health and promotes hair growth. Its growth factors aid the production of hair follicular stem cells and collagen.

These growth factors serve as a stimulus for hair regrowth also because it widens the blood vessels around the hair follicles, allowing them to receive better nutrients and oxygen for growing hair. The new hair will be thicker and healthier.
