Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has emerged as an amazing treatment modality in regenerative medicine. PRP treatments is a non-surgical, in-office procedure where platelets from your own body (blood) is extracted and injected into the scalp. Many famous celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, golfer Tiger Woods, tennis star Rafael Nadal regularly use PRP treatments. The procedure has 2 steps: 

Step 1: A small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and placed in a machine called the centrifuge. The platelet rich plasma portion of your blood is extracted)

Step 2: 

The platelet rich plasma, which is extracted and purified in the step above, is put into a specialized machine (U225 gun) and injected into your scalp with a micro-needle.  This is essentially painless and most patients in our clinic rate the pain as 1/10. Most people watch Netflix or browse the Instagram during the procedure. 

Although the science is fairly complex, by injecting PRP into the scalp the stem cells in your hair root receive a boost. The treatment results in hair restoration by stimulating the growth of new hair from previously dormant follicles, strengthening and thickening your existing hairs.

The growth of your hair follicles naturally take a few months to complete. Because PRP hair-loss treatment utilizes your body’s own growth factors, it takes 4-6 months to see noticeable results. However, in our clinic we utilize an ultra powerful hair camera which shows the smallest change in your hair follicles’ health and number. This way, you can see your hairs grow and thicken as soon as in 1 month.

Absolutely! Many of our patients have had hair transplant in the past and receive PRP hair restoration to give their hair an extra boost and maintain hair density. 

Although, PRP is a natural type of treatment we advise against it during pregnancy.
