PRP therapy is used in hair restoration for natural looking results
With a thin needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated.
PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women. It is a state of the art, non surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood.
Our blood plasma (PRP) contains active growth factors which can promote hair growth. Helping to restore one’s confidence, the end result is a fuller, healthier looking head of hair.
PRP is also being used in conjunction with some hair transplant procedures.
Advantages of PRP Therapy are:
In the past some patients experienced PRP Hair Loss Therapy as uncomfortable and sometimes painful when carried out under topical anaesthetic. But now a days with the development in topical and local anesthetic techniques like ring block for scalp the procedure is no more considered painful.
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.
The procedure normally takes between 40 to 50 minutes, depending upon the area being treated.
