Platelet Rich Plasma – Let’s face it- most people would rather not have to go through any type of surgery, like a hair transplant- if they can avoid it. That is where the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) may suit your needs for your treatment of hair loss.
PRP is a therapy that uses patients own blood to stimulate a healing response within a damaged tissue. Apart from red blood and white blood cells, our blood contains cells called platelets. The function of the platelets is to promote healing and aid in clotting of blood when a wound occurs. These platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body. PRP Hair loss treatment is safe, effective and FDA approved. Visit one of our Brampton or Vaughan clinics for a free hair assessment.

Platelet Rich plasma (PRP) is a natural therapy that exploits the regenerative potential contained in our platelets, in order to induce tissue repair and new hair growth. PRP induces regeneration of the hair bulb environment, increasing blood supply and enhancing hair follicle cell proliferation, resulting in stronger, nicer hair for both men and woman.
In stimulating the hair bulb environment, PRP provokes a natural process that results in strengthen hair. Its natural and “autologous*” quality excludes side effects. Vitality, color and brightness of the hair is enhanced, hair loss is slowed and hair restoration is activated.
PRP hair loss treatment increases blood circulation and provides nutrition to the hair follicle. When we provide platelets via PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles, it increases the body’s natural wound healing mechanism thus stimulating and restore hair growth.
Blood is taken from your arm and processed further in a centrifuge machine. After this process the concentrated platelet rich plasma is separated and reintroduced to the scalp. The process takes approximately one hour.
Although PRP technology is considered cutting edge technology, it has been initially developed 20 years ago for heart surgery to aid in wound healing. It has been used for years in surgical applications and wound care. The use of PRP for the scalp is fairly new and evolving into a promising treatment for use both as an adjunct to a hair transplant and as a way to reverse hair loss. It is generally accepted that there is a significant response.
PRP treatment is extremely safe and natural, because PRP is produced from your own blood. There is no risk of an allergic reaction. Also PRP contains concentrated amounts of white blood cells, the natural defenders against infections. As a result, infection is extremely rare with PRP treatment.
An initial consultation will be performed to explain the procedure. Also to answer all your questions. The patient should avoid all anti-inflammatory medications and alcohol for 2 days prior. Consume plenty of water. Right after the PRP procedure, the patient is fine to continue normal everyday life.
