Thinning hair on the face or head is a common problem for both men and women. Sometimes this happens with age, whilst other times it can be caused by stress. If the hair is simply thinning and not completely gone, this means there is still a follicle for the hair to grow from but it just needs a little help. With the power of vitamin plus injections or PRP, over time you will see a vast improvement.
How does it work?
The vitamin injections we use provides a network of essential ingredients such as amino acids, minerals and enzymes. This cocktail of goodness will reignite the hair follicle and increase blood flow to the problem area.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is the process where we use injections of a concentration of the patients own platelets. PRP is used on dying follicles and also newly transplanted follicles to strengthen. The growth hormones provided by the platelet stimulates the follicle with amazing results. The blood is drawn, processed and then injected directly into the scalp.
What is involved with PRP?
A blood sample will be taken from you by the practitioner or phlebotomist. It is then placed in a centrifuge ready for platelet separation.
Do I need to avoid anything before and after treatment?
Although a safe procedure, there are certain activities you should avoid afterwards.
Do not use any hair products for a minimum of 6 hours after treatment.
Avoid extreme heat such as saunas.
Do not go swimming for at least 2 days after treatment.
Avoid any vigorous exercise, direct sun or heat exposure for 2 days.
Avoid alcohol, caffeine and cigarettes for 3 days after treatment.
