  • Only a small volume of blood is taken, making it a more comfortable experience.
  • The concentration of platelets is consistent so your treatments are consistent and predictable.

Let's Get Technical

PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, has been used since the 1970s for the repair of soft tissue and joints. Because of its effectiveness, PRP is now being used in aesthetic medicine.

PRP is a high concentration of platelets (cell fragments without a nucleus) located in a small amount of plasma (the liquid portion of blood that has its red cell, white cells and other components removed). It is basically 1,000,000 platelets per microlitre (μL),  or at least twice the native concentration of blood.

To create PRP, a small amount of blood is taken from the patient using a proprietary tube. This is then subjected to centrifugation (spinning), so that the red cells and granulocytes are separated from the plasma.

The platelet concentrate and plasma that remains are then collected into a syringe, which is then used to treat the patent.

The PRP treatment uses your own blood.

Growth factors are released by platelets, and these function to regulate healing. When your skin is targeted with PRP, affected cells start to repair any damaged tissue and regenerate new, healthy tissue.

PRP and Hair Growth

PRP is a great treatment option if you have thin, sparse and brittle hair. Studies show that PRP is effective in treating hair loss by doing the following:

  • Increasing hair counts
  • Increasing hair thickness
  • Increasing the number of times your hair actively grows (anagen phase of the hair growth cycle)

If you’re a woman, PRP can help you get almost all your hair back. If you’re a man, you can expect to get about 30% to 40% back.

PRP Hair Restoration Treatment

Treatment takes a little longer than for skin rejuvenation, since it is so meticulous. Once the blood has been separated into platelet rich plasma, it is injected across the scalp, approximately at every half inch over the area of thinning hair.

To prepare for your treatment, make sure to wash your hair the night before or morning of. A topical numbing cream may be applied to improve your comfort. A single session takes about 20 minutes.
