Platelet Rich Plasma therapy (or PRP Rejuvenation) utilises growth factors retrieved from your blood to rejuvenate the skin. It is very popular among men battling hair loss. This is due to the fact that there are no additions of any pharmaceutical products, the end result is very visible and perhaps most importantly, natural. It is also known as ‘Dracula therapy’ or a ‘vampire facelift’. These names might sound scary but the results are indisputable.
Platelets contain large numbers of growth factors, which have been extensively researched and are widely used in the medical field to promote tissue healing. By isolation and separation of the PRP from your blood, a concentrate of natural occurring growth factors is injected to the precise locations of the head you want to target. PRP stimulates collagen production and triggers the skin rejuvenation process. Although this therapy is particularly popular for rejuvenation of the face, it is also frequently used on the scalp for the promotion of hair growth.
Male pattern hair loss is very common but treatment that involves medication might cause erection dysfunction. This is why PRP therapy has become extremely popular amongst men. In PRP therapy, we re-inject growth factors extracted from your blood to encourage re-growth of hair. PRP is also a prophylactic treatment to prevent hair loss. It is truly fascinating to witness how PRP is retrieved; a small amount of blood (10-20ml) is taken from your arm in the same way as if you were having a blood test by your doctor. This is then placed in a centrifuge and spun to separate the plasma from the other blood components. PRP is further isolated from the plasma and reintroduced into target areas.
The whole hair loss treatment procedure takes around 30-45 minutes including injections. There is no risk of allergy or rejection as PRP is obtained from you. Results from this procedure are visible after 3 weeks. Optimal collagen regeneration for the skin on the scalp takes up to 3 months. The results typically last for as long as 18 months. Effect may vary between individuals and most conditions require 2-3 sessions, usually 4-6 weeks apart. There is no limit to the number of treatments you can have for skin rejuvenation and maintenance.
