How does PRP work?

 

It is a treatment that uses your own PRP ( liquid gold, packed with growth factors) that activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and causes weak hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatment.

 

A small amount of your blood is drawn (about 10 mls per tube) and spun in a centrifuge machine. The centrifugation process separates the red blood cells and the PRP, which is then drawn up into syringes and is ready to be used in the skin. The PRP is then injected into the scalp using a small needle.

Once injected, the growth factors then “activate” and continue to activate for 4-10 days post injection. PRP is proven to increase the number of collagen fibres in the skin, improved skin texture and elasticity as well as decreasing hair loss and increasing hair volume and strength.

PRP IS PROVEN TO INCREASE THE NUMBER OF COLLAGEN FIBRES IN THE SKIN, IMPROVED SKIN TEXTURE AND ELASTICITY AS WELL AS DECREASING HAIR LOSS AND INCREASING HAIR VOLUME AND STRENGTH.
