PRP Stands for platelet rich plasma which is blood plasma containing a high concentration of platelets. PRP can not only help regenerate and revitalise damaged tissue, but can help regenerate hair growth.

 HOW IT WORKS 

There are over 30 growth factors in Platelet Rich Plasma that can repair blood vessel damage, skin damage and help ‘sleepy’ hair follicles to wake up.

By re-injecting concentrated platelets made from your own blood, there is an increase in the release of growth factors that provide nutrition to the cells in the scalp, promoting new blood supply to hair follicles, and reducing inflammation creating healthy and more productive hair follicles.

 WHAT TO EXPECT 

A blood sample is collected in 1-2 specially designed tubes.

The tubes are then centrifuged for 5 minutes.

During centerfugion a patented gel within the tubes isolates PRP from other cells within the blood. Ready-to-use PRP is drawn up into the syringe and is now ready to be injected into targeted areas of the scalp.

 

After receiving PRP treatment, a person can usually return to their regular activities. You may experience the following post treatment:

 

  • Bleeding at the injection and/or blood collection site, which is usually resolved within the first 24 hours.

  • Tenderness, pinkness/redness and increased warmth at the treatment area, which is usually resolved within four days.

  • Bruising at the injection and/or blood collection site is usually resolved within three to five days.

 POST TREATMENT CARE 

  • Refrain from washing your hair for the first 12 hours. This will allow the platelets to activate and commence the skin rejuvenation process.

  • Refrain from strenuous exercise for the first 24 hours

  • Take paracetamol and/or codeine if required, but avoid aspirin for two days

  • Avoid supplements that may increase bruising (e.g. fish oil) for two days

  • Avoid inflammatory medication (e.g. Nurofen), topical gels (e.g. Voltaren) and oral steroids (e.g. Prednisone) for ten days
