Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy is a type of treatment where your own plasma is injected into the areas of the scalp where the hair is thinning. Doing this causes the blood cells to stimulate hair growth naturally.

PRP therapy can be used for both men and women and can be done as a stand alone treatment or as part of a hair transplant. The treatment is very safe and is a state-of-the-art way to tackle the problem of thinning hair.
 

The advantages of PRP therapy for hair growth

  • Non-surgical –
    The fact that PRP therapy is non-surgical is a big advantage for people who want to treat their hair loss but don’t want (or cannot afford) a hair transplant. PRP therapy provides a way to increase hair growth without the need to go under the knife.
  • Quick treatment –
    PRP therapy is also quick when compared to a hair transplant, with treatment sessions typically lasting between 60-90 minutes. This makes it preferable for people who cannot take a lot of time off work.
  • Great results –
    Because hair growth is stimulated using your own blood cells, PRP therapy is not reliant on the existing hair that you have in order to be successful, as is the case with a hair transplant.
  • Little-to-no downtime –
    Another very big advantage of PRP therapy for hair loss is that the recovery is very quick. With a hair transplant there is a significant recovery period and the patient has to be very careful not to disturb the newly transplanted hair. This is not a concern with PRP therapy.

 
Richmond Surgical Arts offer a range of injectable treatments and are now offering PRP therapy to our patients.
