Initially used to heal joints, platelet-rich plasma (PRP), has been gaining traction over the past few years as an innovative way to encourage hair growth. PRP has been used for decades in various medical disciplines to repair and regenerate damaged tissues. PRP treatments for hair restoration is ideal for both men and women suffering from hair loss or a receding hairline.
PRP hair restoration isolates platelets from your own blood and uses them to stimulate follicles in areas of hair loss. A simple blood draw is done, the blood is then spun in a centrifuge machine, which separates the parts of the blood by their molecular weight. When the plasma is isolated from the red blood cells, it is purified and then injected into areas of hair loss.

The entire procedure of a PRP treatment takes approximately 45 minutes.
The first thing you will notice a few weeks after a PRP treatment is a decrease in hair loss, don't worry! Soon over a period of months, you will notice thicker hair in the areas of treatment.
Drink at least 1L of water, and be well hydrated 24 hours before your PRP treatment.
We also recommend avoiding the following for at least 7 days before your treatment, as they will increase your risk of bruising:
Do not stop ASA if you are taking it for a medical condition as recommended by your doctor.
PRP unfortunately cannot treat baldness.
Activated platelets and growth factors found in blood plasma stimulate the regrowth of the hair bulb (hair root), and reverse the “miniaturization” of hair follicles that leads to hair loss and thinning hair.
PRP makes hair thicker and healthier but hair needs to be there to be stimulated.
Do not use any hair products for at least 6 hours after your treatment. Also avoid:
for at least 2 days after your treatment.
Minor discomfort is reported when the injections are made, but these are done with a very fine needle to minimize any pain. We also have numbing agents available for all patients.
Most clients start noticing the benefits around 2-3 months after their first treatment. We recommend 3-4 sessions for the best results, with a gap of at least 4 weeks between each session.
