It involves tiny precision laid injections around stubborn areas (usually the frontal and crown), which are painless, to be inserted intradermally (best layer of the scalp to stimulate follicle growth and thickness). These injections are combined with meso-needling the entire scalp.
We are able to penetrate this layer to help stimulate the follicle growth. The Platelet Rich Plasma has growth factors and stem cell stimulating cells, which can rejuvenate the hair follicles and promote growth. The skin itself is not damaged but rather stimulated as well, giving a shiny appearance to the skin after treatment. The thickness of the follicle can also improve with stimulation by platelets and growth factors in the PRP. We have found from our clients the procedure can reinvigorate the hair cycle and attempt to grow new follicles whilst improving the thickness/strength of scalp hair.
No. Results are not instantaneous but hair growth usually starts to become visible in about 4-6 weeks (case by case). Hair thickness and more hair follicles are usually the most prominent benefits . Growth factors can take a long time to stimulate the hair follicles completely. A minimum of 6 months is required to see the full potential benefits of this treatment.
A sample of your blood is taken first and then with a centrifuge process, the growth factor and platelet cells are extracted.Our Cosmetic nurses will skilfully place tiny injections into the stubborn areas where there is hair loss and thinning (typically frontal and crown). These injections are then combined with microneedling the entire scalp for blood circulation (which can be an important factor in nutrients being delivered into the hair follicles).
After the treatment, the skin may appear shiny and flushed. Clients can expect minimal downtime of 4-6 hours post treatment. Many clients return to work after treatment.
Treatments should be performed every 2-3 weeks for approximately 6 to 12 times in order to achieve optimum results. A top-up treatment may be required at the 3 month point depending on the results obtained.
The results of PRP treatment are usually most noticeable after 4-6 months. Most patients usually require touch-up injections once every 3-6 months.
