Hair loss in men and women begins with hair becoming smaller, called miniaturisation. The hair on your head or eyebrows looks thinner and your hair loss gradually worses. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment has been proven scientifically to thicken these small hairs and prevent further loss.
When platelets are activated in the body they produce proteins called growth factors. It is these growth factors that are thought to be able to help stimulate your hair, improving hair growth and thickening hair. The PRP treatment involves a small sample of your blood being processed in a specialised system designed to extract your platelets in a safe clinical manner. These platelets are then harvested into syringes and injected into the area you wish to be treated. PRP is from your own blood, known as autologous. As you are using your own tissue, it will not not cause you any allergic reaction or other risks.
You will usually need a course of four sessions, a month apart, to achieve optimum results. The need or frequency of future treatments varies. PRP treatments can safely be repeated for hair miniturisation or thinning eyebrows if required.
We have seen excellent results with PRP/PRF, particularly when combined with the appropriate oral medications.
