PRP Hair Restoration

Restore thickness and health to your hair.

The PRP treatment is delivered into the scalp, stimulating follicles and improving the number of hairs per follicle, resulting in thicker, healthier hair. Unlike some treatments, such as certain drugs, there is no risk of side effects such as loss of libido.

Because PRP works on active follicles, it’s a preventative treatment intended to slow hair loss and thinness, so it’s best embarked upon when you first start to notice a problem. Please be aware that it is not a treatment for baldness. PRP can, however, help improve the results of hair transplants.

What results can be achieved?

Most patients see a reduction in the shedding of hair in 4 weeks. Between 6 to 8 weeks you will start to see an improvement in your hair character. An increase in hair density should show between 4 to 6 months. Improvements include your becoming shinier, more vibrant and less brittle.

Younger patients who had just started to experience hair loss see the best results with a noticeable increase in hair density. Patients with moderate and advanced hair loss usually see a reduction or cessation, a smaller percentage see hair thickening.

Who can benefit from PRP hair treatments?

Androgenic Alopecia (patterned baldness) is the cause for 95% of men and 10% women suffering hair loss. In 2011 researchers at Yale University pinpointed a malfunction of stem cells in the scalp of men as an underlying cause of androgenetic alopecia.

They found that these stem cells should produce molecules called Platelet Derived Growth Factors (PDGF), which support hair growth. A lack of PDGF results in hair thinning overtime. PRP treatments increase the concentration of your own PDGF around your remaining hair follicles stimulating the production of healthier hair.

For non-hereditary types of alopecia, such as Alopecia Areata where bald patches appear on the face and body, or hair loss caused by a medical condition such as chemotherapy – the underlying issue is not caused by a lack of PDGF and so PRP treatments are not suitable.
