What is PRP Hair Therapy?

Platelet rich plasma or PRP therapy, has been around for many years now in the medical profession and was originally used to treat muscle and ligament injuries with the patients own blood, but in more recent years it’s made the jump from medical procedure to beauty treatment and now is even applicable to combat the effects of hair loss.

Your blood is rich with platelets which in themselves are rich in growth factors and considered to be one of the most potent healers in the human body. What this means is that your platelets are amazing at stimulating cell growth and this in turn promotes a natural healing effect by restoring the normal architecture within you tissues. These growth factors are considered as proteins and are vital in the way that they help to repair and heal your injuries.

But how does this get used to combat the effects of hair loss? We know exactly how wonderful this treatment is as a rejuvenation treatment for your face, however for the hair the procedure is slightly different. The initial building blocks are all the same, with a trained aesthetician taking a small amount of your blood which is then spun at a very high speed inside a centrifuge to separate out the high quality plasma from the rest of the blood cells.

Once separated, the platelet rich plasma is then re-injected back into your body so that your platelets can release their growth factors to treat what is considered as injured tissue, triggering the surrounding cells to start to multiply and stimulate their repair processes.

We’ve found that the individual results vary on a patient to patient basis, but PRP therapy is fully able to be used as a non-surgical procedure (as well as being performed as an additional treatment during a transplant surgery) to ensure the viability and survival of each follicle, as well as providing a boost to the health and strength on a cellular level.

One of the major selling points of the PRP hair therapy treatments is that there are very few side effects associate with having it carried out, and as the blood is all taken directly from yourself, there is no transfusion risks involved with the procedure. Some of the possible side effects include a possible temporary bruising in the area that the blood was drawn from or that the PRP was then re-injected into and in extremely rare cases can cause the hair loss to be worse temporarily.

Following the treatment, anti-inflammatory medication must be completely avoided for seven days, including both prescription and over counter anti-inflammatory medications such as paracetamol. We also need to make any potential patients aware that the use of blood thinners such as Coumadin, Warfarin, Pradaxa and Plavix that they will not be considered to be viable candidates for this form of treatment due to the effect that these medications can have on your blood.

After suffering from very bad acne I was extremely depressed, I had the treatment 9 months ago and I am in love with the results. I have healthy looking skin and my scars are fading, thank you so much.

I’ve only had my consultation with Sharon but already I know I’m in good hands. She was extremely informative and happy to answer any of my questions and talked me through what is needed for my weight loss. I have booked my treatments and I know from the results I have seen that I will be happy.
