What is PRP Hair Treatment?

PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and has been used for many years to help hair loss and skin rejuvenation. It is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal (as much as eight times). Using PRP in treatments enhances the body’s ability to repair, improves healing and speeds up downtime.

PRP treatment for the hair mainly involves three steps:

  1. The patient’s blood is drawn
  2. It is processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the plasma
  3. The plasma is then injected into the scalp

Typical human blood consists of plasma that contains growth factors which are required in the healing process and cell growth. When platelet-rich plasma blood is injected into damaged tissues, such as in the skin, it triggers the body to grow new healthy cells in that area, increasing blood flow plus stimulates of elastin, collagen and excite the hair follicle.

There are so many amazing benefits to PRP for hair loss and health. Whether you suffer with hair loss or wish to maintain the health of your hair, PRP is an excellent treatment.

Benefits of PRP hair treatment

The procedure is non-surgical and minimally invasive with a quick recovery. After taking blood, a needle is use to inject the platelet-rich plasma into the treatment area.
Due to the nature of the treatment, using needles and no cutting of the treatment area, the risk of scarring is pretty much non-existent.
This is one of the safest treatments out there for treating hair loss. As it is non-invasive but mainly because you use your own body cells. This eliminates any risks associated due to allergic reactions and no risk of contamination.
The treatment involves drawing blood, which involves a needle. The procedure will involve injecting into the scalp. Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Here at AKB Aesthetics, we use a vibrating tool to help as a distraction making the treatment more comfortable.
Downtime is very minimal and you can carry on with your normal routine, go back to work on the same day.
The best benefit of PRP treatment is that we are treating the root cause of the problem. PRP stimulates the inactive hair follicles to promote hair growth, shortening the time the hair takes to grow and improves quality of the growth using your own body’s platelets. It is very useful after those who have had a hair implant but also for those individuals who wish to take care of their hair health. It can also be used in postpartum hair loss effectively Most patients seen results after 3 months of regular treatments.
Treatment is not only restricted to the scalp, PRP is used for skin rejuvenation and has been done in medicine for many years for injecting into joints and limbs. An extremely versatile, safe and effective treatment!
