Hair growth treatment for men

Male hair loss is a very common condition affecting 65% of all men by the age of 60. A hair loss treatment that include medication can cause erection dysfunction so there is great demand for effective non-surgical alternatives. This is one of the reasons that Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is extremely popular as a choice in stimulating hair growth for men. We re-inject growth factors extracted from your blood to encourage stimulation of the root and subsequent re-growth of hair. The same treatment is used to prevent hair loss. It is truly fascinating to witness how PRP works. Initially a small amount of blood is taken in a process similar to a blood test. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to separate the plasma. PRP is further isolated from the plasma and once the process is complete, PRP is injected into target areas for hair growth.

The treatment is concluded within 30-45 minutes. A superior hair growth treatment because it does not carry the risk of allergy or rejection. Results are visible after 3 weeks however optimal collagen regeneration takes up to 3 months. The results last for as long as 18 months. Effect may vary between individuals and most conditions require at least two to three sessions, usually four to six weeks apart. 

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy for hair loss

Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (or PRP Rejuvenation) uses growth factors retrieved directly from your blood to rejuvenate the skin on the scalp. It is very popular among men battling hair loss because the end result is visible and natural. Platelets contain large numbers of growth factors, which have been used in medicine to promote tissue healing. They stimulate collagen production and trigger the hair growth process.
