What is prp hair treatment?


Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has become a proven method for treating androgenetic alopecia. Good success have been achieved by many of our hair loss patients who come do the in-clinic procedure.  

PRP, or Platelet-rich plasma, is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma using your blood.  The current methods by which PRP is prepared to report 300-700% enrichment, with platelet concentrations increasing to more than 1,000,000 platelets/L.

Hair Loss Clinics began using PRP hair treatment in dermatology after researchers found that high concentrations of platelets in plasma cells can promote hair growth by prolonging the growing phase of the hair cycle. Our PRP technician will draw your blood and spin it in a centrifuge to separate the platelets and plasma. 

Using a micro-needling device, platelet rich plasma injections are injected into the scalp where hair loss has occurred. An improvement often takes at least three months to manifest. The majority of male and female clients can anticipate a 25% to 40% increase in hair loss.

If your hair loss starts within the first five years or so, PRP hair loss treatment for alopecia works best. Reactivating hair follicles that have lain dormant for a long time is more difficult.

According to a recent study, hair loss significantly decreased between the first and fourth injections.  Hair count increased from an average number of 71 follicular hair units to 93 follicular hair units. Therefore, the average mean gain is 22.09 follicular units per cm2.
