Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a skin treatment that utilises the healing properties of your own blood to rejuvenate and improve the appearance of the skin as well as stimulate hair growth. The procedure involves drawing a small amount of your blood and processing it to separate the platelets, which are rich in growth factors and other beneficial substances.
The resulting PRP solution is then injected or applied topically to the skin. These growth factors stimulate collagen production, promote tissue regeneration, and enhance skin elasticity, resulting in a smoother, brighter, and more youthful complexion. With respect to hair growth, the growth factors help nourish the hair follicles, promote new hair growth, and improve the overall quality of existing hair.
PRP therapy is commonly used for various skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin tone, and texture irregularities. PRP treatment is suitable for both men and women experiencing various types of hair loss, including androgenic alopecia (pattern baldness). It is a safe and natural treatment option, as it utilises your body’s own resources to improve the health and appearance of your skin. Multiple sessions may be recommended to achieve optimal results.
