PRP Hair Treatment

This is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. PRP was historically used to treat skin ulcers, tendinities and various other joint issues. the results were very promising which led to this being used in aesthetic treatments & now hair loss.

It involves taking small amount of blood from patient and spinning it at high speed in a machine(centrifuge) to separate the platelets and plasma from the red blood cells. This separated fraction of blood, rich in platelets and growth factors, plays an important part in the body's healing mechanism. The above is then injected into the area of scalp suffering from baldness.

Patient selection is of prime importance here and therefore we recommend a consultation to decide the best treatment pathway for each individual patient as everyone is unique.
