• PRP is a relatively new addition to the list of hair loss treatments.
  • The theory is that platelets store growth factors to help stimulate wound healing and tissue growth where it is needed and these platelets are contained in ones blood in varying concentrations.
  • So, if you take patient’s own platelets and re-inject them back into an area that needs healing and growth, the body’s own mechanisms will improve the regeneration of the tissue in that area.
  • PRP injections have been verifiably used to help the growth and healing of slow growing tissues like bones and teeth.
  • The process involves collecting blood from the patients arm, separating the platelets from the rest of the blood components via a centrifuge, extracting the platelets along with plasma and injecting the required area with the PRP.
  • It is useful to remember that like most treatments, some patients have great results and others have results that are not as significant.
  • A course of treatments are required and also, like all medical hair treatments it may require ongoing maintenance treatments.

PRP treatments are not generally covered by insurance when used for cosmetic purposes. Check with your insurance carrier for coverage details.

A sequence of injections just under the skins surface, where cell repair and growth occurs, including vitamins, mineral, amino-acids, plant extracts and homeopathic medicines. As these are all essential components for healthy skin and hair cells, this treatment improves circulation, manages superficial wrinkles, replace lost vitamins and improves dull, lifeless skin from the first treatment and growth factors.

PRP is used in our Vampire Facials, to rejuvenate and renew the skin surface. PRP is also used for effective natural hair growth.
