PRP Hair Restoration Treatment

In recent years, doctors have learned that the body has the ability to heal itself. Platelet-rich plasma therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that can harness those abilities and amplify the natural growth factors the body uses to heal tissue.

Platelets are well-known for their clotting abilities, but they also contain growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area.

Many patients are finding that PRP can:

 

  • Reduce wrinkles

  • Plump up sagging skin

  • Get rid of deep creases

  • Improve skin complexion

  • Diminish acne scars

  • Restoring hair growth

For hair restoration, one PRP every 4 weeks for 6 consecutive months. If no improvement after the 3rd application, treatment should be stopped.

 

The effects of PRP are not permanent but effects can last up to 18 months in an average with a maximum of 2 years as the longest reported effect. However, most may resort to a re-touch of the treatment once a year.

Types of Hair Loss

 

Involutional Alopecia:

It may happen due to thinning hair follicle, capillary collapse, insufficient nutrients. PRP leads to follicle regrowth and new vascularisation.

 

Androgenic Alopecia:

Due to reduction in follicle size and defect in conversion of hair follicle cells to progenitor cells. This process is reversed by the PRP.

 

Alopecia Areata:

Immune system may attack hair follicles producing cytokines that inhibit hair growth. PRP creates a medium with high concentration of cytokines which promotes hair growth.

 

Scarring Alopecia:

Scar tissue destroys hair follicles and its ability to regenerate. Efficiency of the PRP depends on the extent of the damage.

 

Aftercare

 shampoo and condition your scalp daily starting the next day after PRP.
