Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy for Hair Restoration
One of the most unique and effective solutions to remedy hair loss is known as PRP therapy. The acronym is short for Platelet Rich Plasma. PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option that has been proven to encourage natural healing of wounds for decades and is now being applied to the hair loss treatment field. The best thing about this procedure is that is completely natural. We use only your own bodily plasma for therapy. It is safe, fast, and effective. The procedure has been used across North America, Europe, and parts of Asia for over two decades, and as the years go by more and more research is published that fully supports the use of PRP for hair restoration.
What is PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy uses a compound called platelet-rich plasma which is derived from the patient’s own blood through an extraction and concentration process. This compound is then injected into the patient’s scalp in order to stimulate hair growth by restoring dead or dying hair follicle cells. It had been rigorously tested both clinically and in the field, but is still waiting approval by all governmental organizations.
The process doesn’t take long, and has produced some extremely effective results in clinical studies. Although the outcomes tend to vary by patient, we can tell you that the many of our patients have achieved substantial restoration of the hair.

How Does PRP Work?
Human blood contains what are called mesenchymal stem cells, which are products that contain essential growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP therapy has been used to heal a variety of wounds in the medical field for years and is proven to be highly effective.
Based on its track record and supporting scientific studies, PRP has been recognized as a safe and all-natural medical procedure performed at the Hairfree Laser Skin Clinics offices for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.
First, we withdraw the patients’ blood, and place it in a centrifuge for 15 minutes so that the platelets become separated from the rest of the substance. The withdrawal process is quick and relatively painless. We then apply some anaesthesia to the scalp to make the process completely pain-free. The PRP is then injected into the scalp. After a quick wash of the procedure area, you are able to go home on your own. You will not need any medication.
What Are the Advantages of PRP Therapy?
PRP therapy for hair loss brings you many unique features, as it is:
• Autologous (derived from the patient’s own body)
• Non-surgical and non-invasive
• Natural (drug free)
• Medically proven and trusted
Is PRP Right for Me?
Although the procedure has been used successfully across medical disciplines for years with great results, and no side effects, we are aware that not everyone may be an ideal candidate. You should always consult with our specialists and your personal physician before making this decision. We want to remind you that PRP is completely natural, and only uses healthy cells from your own body. We recommend that you use PRP as a compliment to go along with other treatments that will, as a whole, work to restore your naturally.
In the end, we recommend this procedure to those people who do not wish to have any sort of surgical procedures, or those who are looking for a more fast-acting, aggressive treatment to help restore their natural hair. If you are looking to get more hair stimulation as a compliment to other procedures, or plan on having a surgery, but just want extra natural help, then PRP is probably the best option for you that exits. *Results may vary from person to person. Results can not be guaranteed.*
