What is PRP?

PRP is thrombocytes extracted from your own blood plasma. Thrombocytes are proteins containing growth factors. When blood plasma, containing growth factors, is injected into the scalp, it stimulates the stem cells surrounding the hair follicle to instruct the hair follicle to expand. Once the hair follicle expands, it starts to produce a stronger hair and hair growth increases.

What happens during a treatment?

The growth factors used for the treatment are collected from your own blood through a blood sample. Your blood is centrifuged and then we fill up a number of syringes with plasma. These are shallowly injected into your scalp. Hair follicles grow 4–6 mm down into the skin, but the part of the hair follicle that utilizes PRP is located approximately 3 mm into the skin.

Since the injections are relatively shallow, they will not be particularly noticeable. In some cases, the patient may experience a tension in the skin or a burning sensation – this is due to the plasma needing space under the skin and the existing tissue needing to make room for the PRP droplets.

What happens, step by step

What happens to the hair after a PRP treatment?

Before the PRP treatment, the hair follicles are shrunken – the hair they produce is slow to grow, thin and in danger of completely ceasing to grow in the future.

After one or two PRP-injections, the hair follicle will start growing. The hair follicle has become stronger and may produce a thicker hair.

A couple of months after the first PRP treatment, the hair follicles have regained their initial growing power. They grow faster and are stronger and usually more pigmented than when they were small and frail.

Do you want your hair examined by a specialist?

Before we recommend anyone to start a treatment, it is important to examine the patient in order to see whether the treatment will be able to yield results. First, you will be asked to fill out a declaration of health. If there are limitations, we will review these. We will also discuss what effect they may have on the end result if the patient should choose to begin PRP treatment.

FAQ on PRP treatment

How often should you get a PRP treatment?

We usually recommend 3-4 treatments with 1 month in between to activate the natural processes in the body in the best way. Exactly how many treatments that are needed is discussed at a free consultation with the customer’s ideas and wishes in mind.

How fast can I see the results of a PRP skin treatment?

How quickly you can see results vary from person to person. Some see a difference only hours after the treatment, while others see results after a few days or need more than one session to see the full results.

What activities should I avoid after a completed PRP 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.

Does one PRP treatment last you your whole life?

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.

What should I think about after the treatment?

A slight redness might present itself immediately after the treatment. The redness usually disappears within a couple of hours. In the meantime, we recommend that you avoid wearing makeup in order to not irritate the skin. Besides that, you can return to your ordinary activities immediately after the treatment.
