The best hair growth treatment that we have seen so far in our patients at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic is PRP, or platelet-rich plasma therapy. There are other medications, vitamins, and treatments that will also help stimulate hair growth.
This form of hair growth treatment uses your own blood to super stimulate hair growth. The treatment draws out blood in the same way as it would be done if you were donating blood. That vial of blood is then put into a centrifuge and is spun until the red and white blood cells are isolated from the platelets. The platelet-rich plasma is then taken and injected back into the areas of the scalp where the hair growth is wanted. The platelets will repair the damaged hair follicles and therefore stimulate faster and healthier hair growth. Not only will patients notice within weeks that their hair is growing faster, they will also get certain added benefits such as restored melanin and keratin to the hair strand. This means that it will restore grey or white hair to its original colour and will also make the hair strand stronger.
