Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is an exciting new technology that encourages hair growth and stimulation. It is a natural solution that utilises your own platelets for treatment, hence, no side effects at all!
We have been performing PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss.
Platelet rich plasma is concentrated blood plasma which contains 3-5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulatory blood. It contains various growth factors and bioactive proteins that aid in hair growth in male and female hair loss.
The plasma contain growth factors which have significant positive effects on hair growth. The platelet growth factors:
- Activates hair stem cells leading to hair production
- Gives strength to the existing hair,
- Reverses hair miniaturization,
- Reduces hair loss
- Increase the actual number and quality of hairs
Some in the medical community think that PRP injections trigger natural hair growth and maintain it by increasing blood supply to the hair follicle and increasing the thickness of the hair shaft. Sometimes this approach is combined with other hair loss procedures or medications.

PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.
Maintenance treatments are required every 4–6 months.
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).
After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:
- platelet-poor plasma
- platelet-rich plasma
- red blood cells
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
Besides hair growth, PRP therapy has proven to be beneficial in skin complaints, dull skin, acne scars, aging issues, etc. It is popularly called as ‘Vampire facelift’ or ‘Liquid facelift’ and is currently a rage amongst celebrities worldwide.
