How does PRP Therapy Stimulate new hair growth

| Aug 2, 2019

Are you concerned about how thin your hair is?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy is a non-surgical procedure with application for Hair Restoration.

PRP Therapy is not considered invasive and does not involve downtime. This treatment does not leave scars or require that one shaves their head or cuts their hair. Risk is extremely low with this procedure and it offers great results.

Hair Loss

Hair Loss or Alopecia affects both men and women.

It is quite common and can be distressing for those who suffer from its symptoms. Genetics, hormones, illness and stress are some of the many factors that can prompt hair loss.

Thinning hair, shedding hair or hair loss can become a source of anxiety and heavily knocks self-confidence and body image. PRP Therapy can treat hair loss regardless of what is causing or affecting it.

The History of PRP

PRP Therapy is not a new treatment; it has an established history of over 30 plus years in medicine.

PRP Therapy was pioneered in the Sports Injuries and Orthopaedics field; it has since become relied upon in the treatment of chronic pain, oral surgery, dermatology and more.

The procedure moved easily into the Aesthetic Medicine industry in the 90’s. PRP Therapy’s well-studied wound healing and regenerative properties make it a natural fit in a field specializing in rejuvenation. PRP Therapy has been well researched and is considered an effective alternative tool for the treatment for Hair Loss for close to a decade now. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4134641/

Note: Research has also investigated PRP’s effectiveness in treating a variety of types of Alopecia with positive results. See https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4809272/ and https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23607773

The Procedure

During a PRP Therapy treatment session, a client’s own blood will be drawn (usually from the arm).

This blood is then placed into a centrifuge for separation. This process divides the blood into platelet rich plasma, platelet poor plasma, and red blood cells. The Platelet Rich Plasma is thus distilled so it can be re-injected in the target treatment area. PRP Therapy does not involve anaesthesia or theatre but a numbing creme can be applied topically. The procedure takes less than one hour and regular activities may be resumed directly afterwards.

How does it work?

PRP Therapy works by prompting and supporting the body’s natural ability to heal itself.

As its name suggests, the re-injection Platelet Rich Plasma contains a high concentration of platelets; these activated platelets go straight to work by releasing Cytokines. Cytokines are small proteins that play a vitally important part in cell communication and thus the coordination of cell action. The growth factors accompanying and unleashed by the Platelets stimulate inactive hair follicles to enter a new period of active growth and produce hair once again.

PRP can:

  • Increase size of the hair shaft
  • Increase blood flow to follicle
  • Improve scalp health
  • Stimulate vital features of the intracellular dermal matrix to aid restoration (i.e. Collagen)
