Advantages of PRP
PRP is a completely natural treatment with no side effects whatsoever. We use the patient’s own body to improve skin or hair. There is no risk of allergies or other complications as all the material we inject comes from the patient.
- Simple treatment that only takes about 45 minutes.
- Easy and free of side effects.
- A treatment that is 100% natural.
How does a treatment work?
A PRP treatment is performed in a couple of different ways depending on whether you are treating the skin or the hair. The main difference is that for skin treatments we always apply a numbing cream 45 minutes before starting the treatment. We also offer numbing cream for hair treatments, but many patients decide to go without.
A treatment takes approximately 45 minutes. If you want numbing cream, this will add another hour to the treatment time.
A treatment always starts with a consultation
Before we begin any treatment, it’s always important to first have a consultation. During a consultation, we determine which treatment will work best for you and your hair. Everyone has different hair conditions. It is important for us to gain an understanding of the results you expect, and to examine your hair in order to estimate which results are reasonable to expect based on you and your hair. Our consultations are always free.

What to consider before your treatment
Do not take pills with omega-3 and do not eat food rich in omega-3 fats, such as fish and avocado, for 3 days prior to your treatment. Omega-3 is an anticoagulant and makes bruising easier.
Drink plenty of water before your treatment. If you are dehydrated, it is more difficult to draw your blood.
Do not eat Ipren
Ibuprofen is an anticoagulant. Therefore, avoid taking it for 48 hours before your treatment. Painkillers that include paracetamol are fine.
Frequently asked questions about PRP
The treatment is safe and natural as it is your own blood being used. There may be some redness that appears right after the treatment but it disappears within a couple of hours. You can go back to your everyday activities immediately after the treatment.
We recommend doing 3-4 treatments with 4 weeks in between. After that, we do a follow up after an additional 2 to 3 months and by then the new, stronger hair will have had time to grow out.
You do not have to have washed your hair before treatment, but it can make it easier for the nurses to perform the treatment if you have clean hair. It is important that you refrain from using products like Toppik, hair wax or hair gel which can restrict the nurses from performing the treatment.
The treatment does not hinder you from carrying out your normal activities directly after a session. We usually recommend not washing your hair for about an hour in order to allow the plasma to settle properly.
PRP is not a permanent solution. Losing hair is something most people do, and PRP helps slow it down and stimulate new growth. How efficient it is and how long it lasts varies from person to person since everyone has different conditions to begin with. In order to get a correct assessment of your hair, we recommend scheduling a free consultation.
