Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma (composition of blood) that contains approximately five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. Apart from red blood cells and white blood cells, our blood also contains cells known as platelets. The function of platelets is to promote healing and aid in the clotting of blood at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body.
PRP treatment for hair rejuvenation involves the injection of a patient’s own plasma and growth factors in to the to improve hair density and the acceleration of hair growth in order to improve the appearance of hair thickness and condition.
Is this right for me?
If you feel that your hair is lacking radiance and density and the signs of ageing are beginning to take its toll, you may find that your hair loss will dramatically reduce with this simple, convenient treatment.
PRP is selectively and carefully delivered in to specific areas with a series of injections. Before the treatment you will be assessed to see if PRP is the right treatment for you. Your specialist will then be able to talk you through the procedure and inform you of what the treatment can achieve.
What does this involve?
The injection of PRP is a hair loss treatment for Men and Women using the body’s own blood to heal itself and promote hair growth. Doctors incorporate its use for the growth of thinning hair, and transplanted hair. If your hair follicles are healthy, then so is the growth of the hair. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from your blood supply. PRP injections work by introducing platelets by administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles to promote healthy hair growth.
