(PRP) an active capillary biostimulator therapy injections provide incredible results in treating hair loss or alopecia. It increases the amount and thickness of natural hair on your head.

How does Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration work?

Capillary biostimulation with PRP is a nonsurgical aesthetic treatment that allows to isolate and use the growth factors present in the patient’s blood to stimulate scalp health and prevent hair loss. The growth factors, in turn, create neovascularization (formation of new blood vessels) at the level of the hair follicle, which is essential for hair growth and regeneration. This process strengthens the hair root, increases the percentage of hair follicles and increases hair density (thickness) offering voluminous hair.

This treatment is indicated for male and female patients who have mild to moderate alopecia. It is highly effective at the beginning of hair loss, and it does not work for the treatment of alopecia totalis (complete loss of all head hair).

How is the treatment carried out?

The Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Restoration treatment is comprised of taking a small sample of blood from the patient’s arm. Then, the blood sample is placed in a centrifuge that will separate the various components of blood in platelet-rich plasma, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells. The concentrated platelet-rich plasma (regenerative cells) will be taken from the sample with a syringe. Topical anesthesia is applied on the scalp and allowed to act for 20 to 30 minutes. Subsequently, multiple microinjections of platelet-rich plasma in provided in the area of the scalp to be treated to produce the desired effect.

This treatment takes about 1 hour with no downtime. After the initial treatment, the injections are repeated once a month for the next three months, then the treatment is performed once every three to six months.

PRP hair restoration may produce noticeable results as early as 4 to 6 weeks post initial session. However, it may be approximately 3 months before you see the results you wish.
