A patient’s own platelet-rich plasma is injected into their scalp. The growth factors and healing factors in the plasma work to restore and promote hair growth. PRP works for both men and women and has produced amazing results for our patients.
A patient’s blood plasma contains active growth factors that can promote hair growth. A sample of blood from the patient is placed in a centrifuge and spun at high speeds to separate the enriched stem cells, or platelets, from the other blood components. The plasma is injected into the scalp using a needle to enhance hair growth by stimulating and repairing dormant or damaged hair follicles. Each injection leaves a small amount of plasma close to the hair follicles, which are stimulated by the growth factors and stem cells. This produces higher quality hair and hair growth. PRP can be used as its own hair restoration treatment to restore certain cases of hair loss. It also works great in conjunction with a hair transplant to ensure the greatest results.
How Many Sessions Will a Patient Need?
Most patients will start noticing the benefits around a month after the first treatment. We recommend 3 sessions for the best results with a gap of 3 to 4 weeks between each session. Additional single treatments at 6 months or 1 year are also beneficial.
How Much Does It Cost?
A single treatment will cost $1,200 + HST, and a package of 3 is available for only $3,000 + HST (a savings of $600). Please note that this price is subject to change over time.
