PRP Treatment for hair restoration can help you restore fullness to your hair and scalp and strength to the hair follicles.  This treatment uses your own platelets to dramatically improve the appearance of your hair.  

PRP Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated blood plasma which contains approximately three to five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, it includes platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing and can help thicken and restore hair growth.  When the platelet-rich plasma is collected from the body and redelivered to the scalp either by several tiny injections or via microneedling, it can have a powerful effect.  When the PRP is delivered into the scalp, it stimulates follicles and increases the number of hairs per follicle, resulting in thicker, healthier hair.  Unlike some procedures which use medication that can cause the libido to lower, PRP has no side effects. Because PRP works on active follicles, it’s a preventative treatment intended to slow hair loss and thinness, so it’s best embarked upon when you first start to notice a problem. Please be aware that it is not a treatment for baldness. However, PRP can help improve the results of hair transplants. 

Nearly all men (95%), at some point, will experience a receding hairline and thinning hair on the top of the head, also known as male pattern baldness. This condition, androgenetic alopecia, is caused by a by-product of testosterone called DHT.  However, hair loss is not just a concern for men.  As women age, hair becomes thinner and the hair follicle less healthy, which can result in hair looking and feeling thinner.  PRP Hair restoration can deliver remarkable improvement to your appearance (and even your confidence). 

Please note, for non-hereditary types of alopecia, such as alopecia areata, where bald patches appear on the face and body, or hair loss caused by a medical condition such as chemotherapy – the underlying issue is not caused by a lack of PDGF, so PRP treatments are not suitable.
