Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is one of the most recent advances in the treatment of hair loss.
Acquiring PRP from you is as simple as giving a small amount of blood for a blood test. Your blood is then processed in front of your eyes to extract it.We also collaborate with a certified Biologist who specialises in this process, so as to provide you with the best possible quality and quantity of PRP. But why do we use it?
Platelets are essential in the healing process by transporting and secreting growth factors. For this reason PRP is useful because it enhances fibroblast, endothelial and epithelial cell multiplication, leading to collagen formation, re-growth and strengthening of hair follicles.
We inject PRP in the scalp using a numbing spray to reduce the discomfort caused by the smallest possible needles. It is better to perform three such sessions, each one month apart, in order to achieve an optimal result.
This method is a valuable tool in hair-loss treatment and this is evidenced by the common practice of performing PRP sessions before and also after hair transplants, to improve the percentage of success of the procedure.
