PRP Hair Loss Treatment
Natural Hair Regrowth
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) Therapy is a natural nonsurgical solution to treating hair loss. PRP contains a range of growth factors and proteins that speed tissue repair.
The treatment works by delivering the growth factors, platelets, and nutrients directly to the follicle of the hair, promoting hair strength and hair growth.
This encourages the healthy growth of new hair follicles which can help ‘fill in’ sparse areas where baldness is starting to occur.

More About PRP
Platelet-Rich Plasma for Hair
PRP hair growth treatment offers a promising avenue for enhancing both the quality and quantity of hair by leveraging these growth factors and natural healing abilities.
Sustained Release of Growth Factors:
One of the primary benefits of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for hair growth is its ability to sustain the activation of hair follicles. Unlike other treatments, PRP involves the use of your own plasma, rich in growth factors, to stimulate the hair follicles effectively.
The growth factors in PRP serve as catalysts that activate hair follicles, encouraging them to enter the growth phase. This sustained activation is believed to offer more consistent and long-lasting results compared to other hair restoration methods.
Tissue Regeneration and Scalp Health:
PRP is renowned for its tissue regenerative capabilities. It not only stimulates hair growth but also improves the overall health of the scalp. This makes it an excellent option for those with weakened or damaged hair follicles.
Rich in Platelets and Growth Factors:
PRP is a concentrated form of your own blood, enriched with platelets. These platelets are packed with various growth factors like PDGF, TGF-β, VEGF, and IGF, which are crucial for the body’s natural healing and regeneration processes.
Targeted Stimulation of Hair Follicles:
Hair growth is a cycle involving various phases such as anagen (growth), catagen (transitional), and telogen (resting). PRP’s growth factors target these follicles to:
- Extend Anagen Phase: By prolonging the active growth phase, PRP helps in growing longer, thicker strands of hair.
- Promote Angiogenesis: Growth factors like VEGF encourage the formation of new blood vessels, improving nutrient delivery to the scalp and follicles.
- Enhance Cell Proliferation: PRP stimulates the growth of hair follicle cells, including those that form the hair shaft.
- Prevent Follicle Miniaturization: In conditions like androgenetic alopecia, where hair follicles tend to shrink, PRP’s growth factors can help counteract this thinning process.

how it works
Reverse Hair Thinning
Unlock the potential of your hair with PRP therapy!
It starts with a consultation where our experienced healthcare provider assesses your hair loss concerns and medical history. Next, a small blood sample is collected, containing your body’s natural healing power. This blood is processed to isolate platelet-rich plasma (PRP), rich in growth factors. PRP is then injected across your scalp to stimulate dormant hair follicles and encourage hair regrowth. Microneedling is then performed to enhance local blood flow for revitalisation.

PRP For Hair Loss
Rich in stem cells which activate the natural healing process, platelet rich plasma (PRP) stimulates cellular regeneration below the surface of the scalp. This encourages the healthy growth of new hair follicles which can help regrow and strengthen hair where baldness is starting to occur.

Frequently Asked Questions
Platelet – Rich – Plasma (PRP) is full of platelets which have growth factors, and these growth factors help to stimulate collagen, and generate new collagen to grow. PRP also has vitamins, nutrients and protein in addition to platelets, which supports the hair follicle and reducing hair fall out.
PRP, with its higher platelet concentration, has been extensively studied and used for hair loss treatment. It is believed to promote hair growth by delivering growth factors, stimulating angiogenesis (formation of new blood vessels), reducing inflammation, and activating hair follicle stem cells.
The injecting and micro needling stimulates the dormant hair follicles, increasing local blood flow to that area.
PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) therapy for hair can be used to address various hair conditions and concerns. Here are some of the hair conditions that PRP therapy can potentially treat or improve:
Androgenetic Alopecia (Genetic Pattern Baldness): PRP is commonly used to treat androgenetic alopecia, which is the most common cause of hair loss in both men and women. It typically manifests as a receding hairline in men and thinning hair in women.
Alopecia Areata: PRP therapy may benefit individuals with alopecia areata, an autoimmune condition that causes hair loss in patches on the scalp and sometimes other areas of the body.
Hair Thinning and Reduced Hair Density: PRP therapy can help improve hair thickness and increase hair density, making it suitable for individuals experiencing overall hair thinning.
Hair Loss After Pregnancy (Postpartum Hair Loss): Some women experience hair loss after giving birth, known as postpartum hair loss. PRP therapy may aid in regenerating lost hair in these cases.
Stress-Related Hair Loss (Telogen Effluvium): Telogen effluvium is a temporary form of hair loss often triggered by stress, illness, or surgery. PRP therapy may help accelerate the regrowth of hair in these cases.
Hair Loss Due to Nutritional Deficiencies: In some cases, hair loss can be linked to nutritional deficiencies. PRP therapy, when combined with appropriate dietary changes, may assist in hair regrowth.
Scarring Alopecia: PRP can be used as part of the treatment plan for certain types of scarring alopecia, where hair loss is associated with scalp scarring.
Hair Loss Following Certain Medical Treatments: Hair loss due to medical treatments like chemotherapy or radiation therapy may also benefit from PRP therapy after the completion of the medical treatment.
It can take anywhere between 3- 6 months to see visual improvement following PRP treatment. Results are based on a range of factors such as age, genetics, and the quality of your plasma.
Your hair follicles are not all in the same phase at once, some of them are in the anagen phase, while others are in the catagen or regressing telogen or resting phase.
For hairs that are in the anagen phase, they typically take about 3 months to replace the old hair and grow. This is why we reccomend to wait around 3 months. The monthly treatments work as support for the hair follicles as the initial injections disrupt and reactivate the dormant ones to produce new hair, resulting in hair thickness.
Just like any hair loss treatment, results are not permanent.
However, after the initial package and treatments, our patients come back for maintenance sessions once every 3 – 6 months.
As male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic condition, you will need to maintain PRP treatments for as long as you want to grow and maintain your hair.
It is best if you can avoid anti-inflammatory medications for three days prior and three days after the procedure.
This includes prescription anti-inflammatory medications as well as over the counter paracetamol (cardiac clients should continue taking aspirin). You should avoid these medications for 3-5 days after the treatment as well.
Clients on blood thinners (Coumadin/warfarin/Plavix/Pradaxa) and fish oil tablets are best to stop taking medication 3 days prior, however are able to continue taking them right afterwards.
Other things to note post treatment:
– You are also asked to not wash your hair for 24-48 hours
– No Styling products or serums to be used for 24-48 hours
– No caps/hats for 12 hours
– No sauna, steam room or hot baths for 24 hours
– No heavy exercise that may cause sweating for 24 hours
There are very few risks with the procedure, and all rarely occur. These can include temporary bruising in the area where the blood was drawn or the PRP was injected, and a temporary worsening of hair loss initially, which then subsides.
After the procedure, any usually mild discomfort or headache can be effectively treated with a simple analgesic like Paracetamol.
As PRP is a natural treatment using your body’s naturally occurring plasma, not everyone gets the same result, hence why results cannot be guaranteed.
From experience, clients with Androgenetic Alopecia, Alopecia Aretha and Telogen Eluvium, achieve visible results usually within the first 3-4 months. The process of follicular miniaturisation (hair loss) occurs over the course of many years; thus rejuvenation of the follicles is not a quick process.
Existing catagen and telogen hairs (hair in the rest phase) will need to shed first before new healthier anagen hairs (hair in growth phase) grow. This is why you may notice additional shedding after your initial PRP treatments.
Generally, the earlier treatment is begun, the faster and more effective the results are. New hair growth is seen in almost all cases of pattern hair loss, but the extent of satisfaction will also depend on the individual. There are some individuals who respond well – and then there are those who don’t respond as well and may need additional or alternative treatment.
With the PRP injections, pain towards the area of the crown is minimal, however, our patients experience discomfort when approaching the front of the head towards the forehead. There is no downtime after our PRP scalp treatment, however tenderness at the site of injections is normal- this can last a couple of days. A headache post treatment is also normal, so taking paracetamol is allowed.
