While hair transplants and scalp micro pigmentation are often the first options that come to mind when thinking of hair restoration treatment, there are other alternatives. One of these is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment: a safe and natural way for men and women to fight back against hair loss.
Is PRP Right for You?
PRP treatment is most effective for people experiencing early stage hair loss, and it is particularly helpful for sufferers of male and female androgenetic alopecia.
Your Diagnosis & Personal Treatment Plan
Before starting any hair loss treatment it’s essential to get a professional diagnosis of your condition. The easiest way to do this is to arrange a free consultation at your local Vinci Hair Clinic. If you are a suitable candidate and wish to go ahead with the treatment, your Vinci advisor will arrange your first PRP session. For maximum efficacy, your personal hair restoration plan may combine PRP with other treatments such as minoxidil or finasteride.
Your PRP Session
On the day of your PRP session, you’ll arrive at your chosen Vinci Hair Clinic, and the friendly team will help you settle in before your treatment begins. A technician will draw blood from your arm and place it in a centrifuge.
The centrifuge separates the blood into two components, red blood cells and plasma. The plasma carries platelets, which are abundant in growth factor. The growth factor has a stimulating effect on cell function and can promote hair growth.
When the plasma is prepared, the treatment itself begins. The PRP solution will be injected into the scalp at the depth of the hair follicles. Some people experience mild discomfort during the treatment, but it is not painful. The entire treatment will take around 30 minutes to complete and you can continue your day as normal afterwards.
A typical PRP plan will involve monthly treatments for the first 3 to 4 months, followed by top-up treatments every 3 to 6 months. Initial results can often be seen in the first 2 to 3 months, with reduced shedding and early regrowth in areas of hair loss. Continued treatment results in growth stimulation and can prevent thinning from progressing.
