PRP for Hair Loss
What is hair PRP?
PRP therapy is a new and natural non-surgical option for patients experiencing hair loss. Here at MMSA, we have seen patients improve tremendously after treatments, and clinical studies provide evidence that PRP stimulates hair growth. The cells and growth factors in PRP encourages the growth of hair follicles.
PRP is a great solution for both men and women, especially when hair transplant surgery is not an option. PRP injections can stimulate new hair growth in people who suffer from male or female pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia). The male hair procedure is sometimes referred to as “PRP Vampire Hair Raising.”
Medications used to restore hair can be used in conjunction with PRP, only if the patient can tolerate the medication used. PRP can also be combined with Minoxidil lotion or used after a hair transplantation for an even better effect.
What does the process involve?
- A nurse will take your blood (like a normal blood test).
- The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP which contains a large concentration of growth factors and platelets integral to healing and regeneration.
- The area to be treated is washed and local anaesthetic cream is applied.
- The PRP is then injected directly into the scalp area where the hair is currently thinning.
The procedure will take approximately 60 minutes, and the PRP treatment is usually performed every 4 to 6 weeks for three sessions.
