Micro-Needling Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss
Androgenic alopecia is the most common type of hair loss with up to 80% of white males & 40% of women developing it with age. Until recently, the only effective treatments were drugs such as minoxidil and finasteride, or hair transplants. Scientific studies done in recent years have shown that injecting platelet-rich plasma (PRP) has a beneficial effect in inducing regrowth in androgenic alopecia hair loss.
Rather than inject the PRP into the scalp with a syringe, our estheticians use microneedling, which is an almost painless technique, to apply the PRP. Microneedling produces thousands of tiny punctures in the scalp with a specific depth, through which the PRP can travel down to the hair follicles. There’s no downtime or special aftercare instructions.
PRP scalp treatments are usually initially done in a series of 3 monthly sessions, with touchups recommended yearly or more often if desired.
