Hair Restoration with PRP
Thinning hair is a common concern for many men and women. PRP therapy is now showing promising results in the restoration of healthy hair growth.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment has been used in many areas of medicine for more than 20 years. In the cosmetic field alone it is used for skin rejuvenation as well as the treatment of joints and hair restoration.
A concentrated serum of platelets in plasma derived from your own blood is injected into the scalp. Once activated, the platelets will release a bounty of essential growth factors that are vital for hair growth stimulation and tissue regeneration. The purpose of PRP for hair restoration is to stimulate new hair growth in dormant follicles, and enhance hair growth in weaker follicles.
Your hair follows a normal growth cycle pattern. It is in the ‘anagen’ phase that hairs are connected to a blood supply and are therefore growing via the nutrients they receive via circulation. PRP therapy aims to stimulate new hairs and dormant hairs to thrive in this anagen phase of hair growth. From there the hairs will regrow stronger, and, hopefully with more density.
