What is a PRP Hair Treatment?
Platelet-rich plasma is a major blood component that helps encourage wound healing, particularly for regeneration and cell generation. It comprises of two different segments: plasma and platelets. Plasma is the fluid in the blood that constitutes over half of its entire content and carries essential nutrients to the areas of the body that most require it. Platelets, on the other hand, are critical for healing and can help with blood clotting as well as encourage cell production and tissue regeneration. PRP, in short, is the blood that comprises more platelets than the average amount.
PRP has become a phenomenon in hair transplant procedures, most particularly, in treating male pattern baldness.
At our clinic, we perform PRP therapy for hair by getting a blood sample and using a centrifuge device that quickly swivels the sample to divide other blood components, including red blood cells and white blood cells. We then develop platelet-rich plasma injections, which are used to encourage healthy hair growth and recovery.
Types of Hair Loss Issues PRP Can Treat
Our PRP treatments can assist in an array of conditions experiencing hair loss issues, including:
- Alopecia areata
- Androgenic alopecia
- Androgenetic alopecia (Male Pattern Baldness)
- Cicatricial Alopecia
- Frontal fibrosing alopecia
- Lichen planopilaris
How Does Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Treatment Work?
As we’ve mentioned, our PRP therapy uses your own blood to kickstart new hair growth. We do this by taking blood sample which is then placed in a centrifuge device that divides platelets and plasma from the other blood components. PRP injections are then micro injected into parts of the scalp where hair growth is required.
Our PRP hair regrowth treatment also works to activate and enhance the texture and density of your existing hair. The platelets found in this injection treatment have growth factors that work to stimulate follicular stem cells, encourage healing and promote hair growth. The end result leaves you with happier, healthier, and fuller hair.
At our clinic, it takes up to 3-6 appointments for optimal results, depending on the patient’s requirements. It is important to note that outcomes will vary based on the patient’s medical history, and you won’t see results until a few months post-treatment.
What to Expect Post-Treatment
PRP hair therapy is a safe and effective procedure, giving you peace of mind you’ll receive our utmost care. Because we take a blood sample during the procedure, it’s essential that you are well-hydrated and have had a meal prior to the session to prevent yourself from feeling faint.
Rare side effects of getting our PRP treatment include:
- Tissue damage
- Nerve damage
For these reasons, it is imperative to book a consultation with our trichologist to see if you are eligible for treatment.

What criteria do you need to be eligible for PRP hair loss treatment?
As the treatment requires taking a sample of your own blood, we must take your medical history into account prior to undergoing PRP hair loss treatment. During our initial consultation, we will discuss any medical conditions you have or medications that you are taking.
Medical conditions whereby you are deemed unfit to do the treatment include cancer, certain autoimmune diseases, as well as pregnancy. Medications such as anti-inflammatories, blood thinning treatments, and corticosteroids can impact the outcome of the treatment.
You must also make a note of any other medical and non-medical treatments, including injectables, non-prescription oral medication, supplements, and topical medications, to our doctors. Based on your treatment plan, we may have to alter the products you use before our session to ensure a safe and non-invasive treatment.
In what circumstances is PRP hair treatment a more suitable option than other hair loss treatments?
While a hair transplant procedure is a popular choice for most patients, these treatments are more suitable for patients already experiencing hair loss and balding. PRP hair loss treatment, on the other hand, is the ideal choice for patients who are about to experience or are in the early hair loss stages for more optimal results. PRP can also be used in conjunction with Hair Transplants to create a pristine environment for newly transplanted hairs, increasing graft survivability.
How long does the new hair growth last post-treatment?
For optimal results, you will need to do three to six sessions which will last for 12 to 18 months. Because it is a non-permanent solution, it is highly recommended to get touch-ups done once or twice a year.
How long does it take to see results from PRP for hair loss?
Although your hair texture and hair shafts should improve immediately after the first treatment, it takes 3 to 6 months to see results from the sessions.
