The PRP Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy: what is it and how does it work?
The doctor takes a little blood which is then treated in a centrifuge so that only the enriched cells or platelets (PRP) remain.
The PRP or highly concentrated Platelet Rich Plasma, including essential growth proteins, is injected into the scalp or areas to be treated using a special micro needle.
It is possible to use PRP Hair Loss Therapy alone to promote hair growth or it can also be used in combination with hair transplant or restoration surgery.
Frequently asked questions about PRP hair treatment
•Does it hurt? A topical numbing cream applied 30 mins prior to procedure.
•What are the risks? There is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP therapy because the enriched plasma has been produced from the patient’s own blood. A concentrated amount of white blood cells make up part of the PRP which are the body’s natural defenders against infections. Infections are therefore extremely rare.
•How long does PRP treatment takes? The actual procedure normally takes about 60 minutes, depending upon the areas being treated.
•Do I need to repeat this treatment? Depending upon the patient’s individual needs and treatment plan, PRP treatment can be repeated until the desired result has been achieved. Our experience shows that regular PRP treatment every 3 to 6 months can be very beneficial
