Hair PRP

Hair PRP

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) hair treatment is a minimally invasive procedure that uses your own blood to stimulate hair growth. During the procedure, a small amount of blood is drawn from your arm and then processed to separate the platelets from the plasma. The platelets are then injected into your scalp, where they release growth factors that promote hair growth.

How Does PRP Hair Treatment Work?
Platelets are blood cells that contain growth factors. These growth factors help to repair damaged tissue and promote cell growth. When injected into the scalp, the growth factors in PRP can stimulate hair growth in two ways:

  • They can help to increase the number of hair follicles in the scalp.
  • They can help to make the hair follicles that are already present grow thicker and stronger.

Who is a Good Candidate for PRP Hair Treatment?

PRP hair treatment is a good option for people who are experiencing hair loss due to androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness) or female pattern baldness. It is also a good option for people who have had hair transplants.

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

The number of PRP hair treatments that you need will depend on the severity of your hair loss. Most people need 3-6 treatments, which are spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

What are the Side Effects of PRP Hair Treatment?

The side effects of PRP hair treatment are generally mild and go away on their own within a few days. These side effects can include:

  • Temporary redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection site
  • Mild pain or tenderness at the injection site
