Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP Therapy is one of our most effective therapies to improve hair growth. PRP relies on using the patient’s own proteins to stimulate hair growth.
About 10ml of blood is drawn by our surgeon and this is spun or centrifuged to obtain the plasma. This plasma contains platelets in high concentration.
These platelets have a lot of growth factors which stimulate hair growth. New hair follicles are recruited to areas where hair may be sparse, which means more hair. Thicker hairs will also grow due to an increased size of the hair follicle and better blood flow to the hair follicle.
PRP is a great treatment option because there is no downtime and the entire procedure is done in just 30 minutes!
At PAI Medical Clinic, we use a specialized device to deliver the PRP that minimizes any pain for our patients. The device also delivers the PRP at the exact dermal level required to maximize our patients’ hair growth.
