PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet rich plasma therapy is a treatment that doctors use to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. It can help restore hair growth which has been backed up by scientific research and it can help tissues heal and increase the production of collagen and is the Vampire Facial. It has been used by elite athletes to help heal their injuries.


Our blood is made of 2 main components, red blood cells and plasma. The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets which are rich in growth factors. Growth factors can help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. The same growth factors help rejuvenate the skin.


A blood sample is withdrawn from the patient and put into a machine called a centrifuge which separates the red cells. The plasma rich in platelets is then injected directly into the area to be treated whether it’s the scalp, the face of joints. The entire process takes less than half an hour.

There is minimal downtime and discomfort. For best results, consistency is the key and treatment need to be performed once a month for the first 3 months and then every 3 to 6 months thereafter depending the patients response. Initially hair shedding is reduced, followed by early regrowth. PRP is part of a multifaceted programme to treat hair thinning and loss.

Growth Factor Injection Therapy is a practically painless procedure that in the majority of cases does not require anaesthesia

With the Growth Factor Injection Therapy treatment there are no side effects and it is absoloutely safe, since the patients own blood is used. Excluded are cases of patients suffering from rare autoimmune diseases.

Growth Factor Injection Therapy is ideal not only to ensure that the hair grows stronger and stays in place, but also to slow down further hair loss for a period of time. In addition, the combination of Growth Factor Injection Therapy with hair transplant treatment brings even more impressive results, strengthening the hair that already exists in the area, but also stimulating the growth rate of the implanted hair folllicles. Usually, the benefits to the hair last for about a year.

Growth Factor Injection Therapy treatment lasts about 30-40 minutes
