Hair loss and hair thinning is a common complaint of men and women of all ages. Genetics, stress levels, and lifestyle all play a role in hair growth and abundance.

Additional Information

Autologous Platelet Rich plasma (A-PRP) is a natural therapy that exploits the regenerative potential contained in our platelets, to induce tissue repair and new tissue generation.

A-PRP induces regeneration of the hair bulb environment, increasing blood supply and enhancing hair follicle cell proliferation. This results in stronger, nicer hairs.

In stimulating the hair bulb environment, A-PRP provokes a natural process that results in strengthened hairs. Its natural and “autologous” quality means no side effects.

Performing A-PRP requires just a few millilitres of blood. The sample is put in a centrifuge to concentrate the patient’s platelets in a small amount of plasma. The plasma is then injected through a thin needle in the skin of the scalp.

Two major alopecia types affect the population:

The Androgenic Alopecia: the most common cause of hair loss due to hormonal imbalances, lack of nutrients or diseases. Treatment is challenging, and previous therapies demonstrated low-effectiveness
The Alopecia Areata: a rare autoimmune disorder causing spot baldness

Platelets have the ability to locally release growth factors, small molecules that act as messengers to initiate the process of cellular regeneration. From a small sample of blood, your physician isolates your platelets with a dedicated kit for the preparation of Autologous Platelet Rich Plasma. The A-PRP is ready to be injected in 10 minutes. Because it’s prepared from your blood, the risk of rejection or allergic reactions is minimized.
