What is PRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP): Blood contains plasma, red and white blood cells and platelets. Platelets are small cells which contain clotting and growth factors. During the healing process these growth factors stimulate and encourage the healing process, by activating the inflammatory process necessary for healing.

Blood contains 6% platelets, but PRP is specifically made to have significantly more platelets, which with their important growth factors, allow the triggering of a superior healing process. Essentially poorly performing cells are enabled to be replaced in a rapid time frame at the site they are needed, with a high success rate.

The multiple growth factors in platelets promote healing by:

  • Triggering new capillary growth (new blood vessel formation)

  • Attracting undifferentiated stem cells into the newly made matrix and activating cell division

  • Suppression of cytokines and reducing inflammation

  • Attracting macrophages to aid tissue healing and regeneration

PRP has shown significant benefit in several conditions. There is growing evidence to show that PRP can aid hair loss disorders by reinvigorating dormant hair follicles and also stimulating hair growth. This combined with the improved healing benefits can help achieve optimal results post hair restoration procedures.

Additionally PRP can assist in facial rejuvenation by treating wrinkles and sun damage and discoloration when used with other treatments. It can also help in some cases with post-traumatic scars when used alongside centrifuged fat tissue and fractional laser resurfacing, and improve their cosmetic appearance considerably.

Because PRP comes from the patient in whom it will be used, and is effectively an antibacterial and anti-inflammatory biological material, as a treatment it is considered extremely safe and hence it is a fantastic adjunct to treatment of both hair loss and facial rejuvenation procedures.

When is PRP best administered?

In men and women:

  • To strengthen transplanted hair

  • To treat male pattern hair loss

  • To treat age related hair loss

  • To prevent hair loss

  • To treat hair loss caused by several factors

In hair loss conditions, PRP has shown notable and impressive results on both the strength and quality of the hair, and some promising long term results. PRP assists with the rejuvenation and activation of the hair follicles. It promotes the body’s own natural processes to respond in a strong way to the inadequate functioning of the hair follicles. This then activates the re-growth process.

ACell is a complex protein scaffold which will maintain and support a healing environment through constructive remodeling. This regenerative medicine product was originally developed for uses such as wound healing from burns, but has found great use in hair restoration. It can be combined with PRP Therapy or used on its own in conjunction with hair restoration. ACell can help to speed up the healing process as well as potentially improve results after hair restoration. ACell is also often applied to the donor area after hair transplant to speed up recovery from harvest sites.
