What is PRP treatment for hair?​

Platelet-rich plasma is a non-invasive treatment for hair loss. It works very well by itself but also alongside hair transplant procedures.

PRP is a great treatment option for those who do not want to commence medication.

Hair loss is caused by the follicle shrinking (follicle miniaturization) until it produces thin, short hair or no hair at all. There are a variety of different causes of hair loss, being the main one hormonal, but also lack of some vitamins like B12 or vitamin D, iron deficiency, your thyroid levels can also affect your hair loss, stress and so on. 

We discuss all of this in your consultation.

The human body’s extraordinary self-healing capacity is used in the PRP treatment for hair to stimulate and increase follicle activity.

PRP treatment for hair step by step

It all begins with a comprehensive consultation during which I examine your scalp and ask you questions to see if you’re a good candidate for PRP treatment. 

How does PRP treatment for hair work?

In PRP treatment for hair, the platelets help to change the behaviour of the hair follicle cells, promoting hair regrowth and increasing the thickness and volume of existing hair.

PRP has 5-7 times more platelets than regular blood.

Platelets are the body’s first aid kit when it comes to repairing and rebuilding damaged tissue. They are triggered when you have a wound and go to the site to help clot the blood. 

However, they also send a “shout” to the neighbouring cells (fibroblasts) to start the healing process. 

Platelets also provide vital growth factors that enable regenerated cells to function more effectively. 

The following are the primary growth factors released by these platelets:

  • Epidermal growth factor (EGF) promotes cell proliferation and tissue healing.
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) aids in the formation of new blood vessels. A more vascularised tissue receives more oxygen and nutrients, allowing it to function more effectively.
  • Fibroblast growth factor (FGF): Collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid are all made by fibroblasts. FGF supports wound healing by promoting fibroblast proliferation to increase the formation of those components that rebuild the damaged tissue. 
  • Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) encourages the formation of new blood vessels.

These platelets release growth and healing factors that stimulate and raise the number of reparative stem cells, allowing the new tissue to behave properly.

Stimulates hair growth naturally, without surgery or medication, with minimal discomfort and no side effects.
