As we age, the physical signs of aging become visible and begin to take a toll on our self-esteem. For men, in particular, hair loss is one of the most common concerns. However, hair loss is not exclusive to middle-aged men and up.
Hair loss can affect men as early as their twenties. There have been solutions for hair restoration for years but none have been as natural and effective as platelet rich plasma therapy. PRP therapy is a hair restoration solution that uses one’s own blood to rejuvenate the hair follicle.
The most common cause of hair loss in men is due to the condition, male pattern baldness. This is a genetic condition passed onto you by your parents. Science suggests that this condition affects the health and strength of the hair follicle, therefore, resulting in poor growth. In addition to male pattern baldness, other factors o disorders can have an effect on hair growth.
Diseases like anemia and thyroids issues can stunt a man’s ability to grow hair. Other than primary illnesses, hair loss can also be attributed to stress, diet, and medications.

Platelet-rich plasma therapy (PRP) is a procedure that uses the patient’s blood for hair restoration and rejuvenation. This treatment is made effective by the growth factors that exist in plasma.
This treatment is an injectable hair restoration treatment that supports growth and repair deep in the hair follicle. These platelet cells promote restoration, turning inactive hair follicles into active hair follicles to re-grow hair. This is a great option for patients that are looking for an alternative to chemicals or a full hair transplant.
The procedure begins with the harvesting of blood. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate the blood and plasma. The plasma is then treated to become more concentrated with platelets and growth factors.
Once the plasma processing steps are complete, the platelet-rich gel is then injected into the scalp. Since this treatment is injectable, no anesthesia is necessary just like any other injectable cosmetic.
Since the treatment consists of you using one’s own blood there is no chance of allergic reaction.
