PRP For Hair Restoration: What's All The Hype About?

PRP For Hair Restoration: What’s all the hype about?

Initially made famous by the one and only Kim Kardashian and coined the “vampire lift”, the biochemical treatment PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) has become increasingly popular in various medical and cosmetic fields across the globe – and for good reason. However, while PRP therapy may seem like a new treatment, it was first used in 1987 for heart surgery. The healing extracts obtained from your own blood are the secret to the success and versatility of PRP, making it an all-natural treatment with no addition of foreign bodies. Platelet-rich plasma contains potent valuable and powerful components called growth factors.

The growth factors in PRP are proteins that stimulate cell growth, proliferation, and division by binding to specific receptors found on the membrane of your cells. This translates to quicker healing rates of tissues, increased production of collagen in aging cells and stronger hair follicles.

Our personal favourite use of PRP? Aiding our clients in regaining their confidence by combatting hair loss issues. PRP for hair therapy is on the rise and for good reason. PRP injections have been clinically proven to stimulate hair growth in areas of thinning on the scalp.

How does PRP Hair Therapy work?

PRP contains a reservoir of growth factors which stimulate various development-related functions in numerous cells. PRP happens to hold all four essential Growth Factors for hair growth.

  • Platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF)
  • Epidermal growth factor (EGF)
  • Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)
  • Vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF)

How does PRP hair treatment stop hair loss?

As cited in a study published in 2017,  VEGF and PDGF are the most crucial growth factors in hair growth. The study conclusions include the indication that both men and women with androgenic alopecia (male pattern baldness) had significantly lower levels of VEGF in contrast with their healthy counterparts. Since it has the most far-reaching effect on hair growth and its cycle, in its absence hair loss is guaranteed. In PRP hair treatment, VEGF is an active element of its composition which will be injected into the scalp initiating growth.

 How painful is PRP Therapy? Our U225 mesogen combines needling and cannula into one treatment process to make PRP virtually painless for you  – what’s more, the pain is tolerable without the need for numbing cream – which is a huge bonus. The use of numbing cream in PRP treatments can interfere with getting the absolute best results since numbing cream can impair blood circulation. Additionally, many clients still feel pain with manual injections even with the use of numbing cream. Pain can cause shock to the body which can consequently trigger hair more hair loss. The U225 gun revolutionizes the way we can deliver our PRP treatments – faster treatment time, more precise than ever and less pain with micro-droplet injections.  However, if any of our PRP hair therapy clients prefer manual injections over our mesogen, we are happy to oblige!
