Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a safe treatment which uses the natural growth and healing factors from one’s own blood to promote healing and growth and can be used to helpful for men and women suffering with hair loss and thinning due to:

  • Androgenic alopecia
  • Alopecia areata
  • Improving results following hair transplantation


The Benefits of PRP include:

  • Natural stimulation of hair growth
  • Improving hair follicle density, fullness quality and volume
  • Strengthening and thickening existing hair
  • Reducing in the rate hair loss

Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes and local anaesthetic is applied to maximise comfort. Blood is drawn, spun in a centrifuge to separate pro-inflammatory cells from healing and growth factors which can then be injected into the area of concern.

For best results, treatments are done monthly for 3 months and then every 6-12 months as required. Results work best in those with early hair loss as the efficacy reduces with advancement of the hair loss. PRP can also be used in conjunction with other treatments and medications for hair loss.
