PRP (platelet-rich plasma) is a non-surgical minimally invasive treatment for hair loss and facial rejuvenation (Vampire Facelift). It involves minute scalp or facial injections of a concentrated liquid derived from a sample of your own blood. It is a form of ‘biotherapy’, which utilizes your own body’s ability to heal, repair and rejuvenate. For this reason, it often appeals to people who would like to avoid artificial products or who would like to supplement to other treatments that they may be using.
PRP is a fairly new treatment option for hair loss. However, it has been used extensively for facial skin rejuvenation. It has been shown to be a very safe treatment and, although every patient’s response will be different, we are seeing very encouraging results when treating hair loss.
