What is PRP hair therapy ?

PRP (plasma rich plasma) therapy is used in numerous areas of medicine. One of the most popular applications of PRP in Vancouver is treatment of hair loss and hair rejuvenation. PRP hair therapy involves three easy steps:

Step 1: A small amount of blood is taken from your arm.

Step 2: The blood sample is put into a machine (centrifuge) and the Platelet rich portion (PRP) is extracted. 

Step 3: The platelet rich portion (which is also known as liquid gold or PRP) is serially injected into your scalp (this could be done manually with a needle or semi-automatically with a mesotherapy gun).

How does PRP hair therapy work ?

The platelets are the blood cells that contain thousands of natural growth factors. These growth factors can trigger our cells to proliferate (grow, divide and stay healthy), they speed-up the healing process and stimulate tissue regeneration. 

When injected into the scalp, these powerful growth factors result in:

1: Increased hair growth 

2: Thickening of existing hair follicles

3: Increased density of hair

4: Increased blood supply to scalp and hair

Is PRP Worth it for Hair-loss?

PRP is one of the most effective topical treatment (non-surgical) for hair-loss and hair rejuvenation. While 100s of remedies exist for hair-loss treatment only a handful are backed by real scientific data.

Numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies have shown that PRP injections are extremely effective for increased hair growth and hair rejuvenation. In our West Vancouver clinic, most patients who receive PRP injections have shown increased hair density and improved hair health after their 2nd or 3rd treatment. In a recent survey, the majority of patients who had PRP for hair-loss reported significant hair-regrowth 3-5 months post treatment.

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.

Not at MONARCH MD + HAIR LAB MD. We pride ourselves for having virtually pain-less PRP treatments for hair-loss. All of our patients rate their pain level 0-1 out of 10. Usually you can relax and watch your favorite Netflix show while you receive your treatments. 

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. 

Patient Experience

I wanted to share my experience with my hair rejuvenation journey at Monarch MD Medical Aesthetics clinic. The clinic itself is beautiful, and very clean. Upon entering I was welcomed in a warm, and friendly manner. I was taken into an elegantly designed consultation room by one of their hair specialists, Dr. Webster. We began with talking about my experience with my hair loss. Dr. Webster asked engaging questions that actually helped me understand my own hair loss better. One of the main reasons I chose Monarch MD was because they are the only clinic I found that performs a procedure called trichoscopy. A trichoscope is a live microscopic camera, which is connected to a large TV. I was able to see a live video feed of my hair follicles and scalp, as Dr. Webster guided me through his observations. With the trichoscopy results and the questions he asked me prior, Dr. Webster and Dr. Akbari, provided me with a clear diagnosis of Androgenic Alopecia, or male pattern hair loss. I was then educated on what the physiological mechanism behind this hair loss is. Knowing the mechanism helped me understand the treatments and how they work. I’m very impressed at how much they were dedicated to educating me and making sure I was making an informed decision. I was blown away by how many treatment options were available as I had only heard about PRP in my reading. What I appreciated the most is that I was provided with an honest opinion of the best treatment package for me without being upsold on every treatment available. The treatment plan was reviewed with Dr. Akbari, the medical director of the clinic. She came in after to see if I had any questions about the recommended treatment plan. She is the kindest, most humble surgeon I have had the pleasure to meet. Her patience and willingness to help is disarming. Ash, the clinic manager, was able to get me booked in for my first session.
