Platelet Rich Plasma
PRP is short for Platelet Rich Plasma. Our Nurse will collect a small sample of your blood as you would normally conduct when you have your routine blood test at your surgery. The blood is collected and placed in a special container. The container is then placed in a machine called a centrifuge where your blood is spun for approximately 15 minutes so it can separate your blood components. Under the watchful eye and guidance of , our Registered Nurses with qualifications & experience in cosmetic injection applications conduct all the works in a professional practice.
Stress is a huge factor that effects hair loss Dramatic change in weight (generally fast weight loss). Your diet – You are what you eat, so eat the correct things (no junk food) read our PREPARING FOR PRP page for more info about food and supplements that we recommend. Many men especially have the hair loss gene inherited from their parents, as soon as they hit a certain age, then the hair loss becomes dramatic. To stabilise this you need to commence intense back to back PRP treatments to bring vital nutrients to the effected Hair follicles that are dying.
Another major contributor is a chemical called DHT which effects the hair on the top of the head, this chemical is increased by higher levels of Testosterone especially in men. The hair follicles on the sides and back of the head are generally not effected by DHT hence why most baldness is to the top part of the head not the back and sides. Again by conducting PRP treatments this combats the effects of DHT by reversing the damaged hair follicles to become healthy.
