Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP)

The most common cause of hair loss in men is due to androgenic alopecia, the early stages of which can be slowed or reversed with medication; while more advanced cases may be amenable to hair transplantation.

Androgenic hair loss is due to the activity of androgens, predominantly DHT, at the dermal papillae of the individual follicles. In adult men, its incidence is roughly equivalent to chronologic age, and it has a strong genetic component.

The physiology is primarily androgenic, with dihydrotestosterone (DHT) the major contributor. Androgens are important in male sexual development around birth and at puberty. They regulate sebaceous glands, apocrine hair growth and libido. With increasing age, androgens stimulate hair growth on the face, but suppress it at the temples and scalp vertex, a condition that has been referred to as the ‘androgen paradox’.

The treatment protocol consists of replacement therapy with minerals vitamins and aminoacids along with 5 alpha reductase inhibitors and minoxidil

PRP therapy is used in hair restoration for natural looking results

With a thin needle, your own Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is injected into the scalp. Then the growth factors in your blood cells do their job and hair growth is naturally stimulated.

PRP Hair Restoration is suitable for both men and women. It is a state of the art, non surgical, totally natural, alternative medical procedure used for the treatment of hair loss or hair thinning. It is an injectable treatment which uses the patient’s own blood.
