PRP treatment instead of a hair transplant

A hair transplant doesn’t suit all people. For example, Alan is a person who visited us at the Nordic Hair Clinic and thought he should have done a hair transplant. However, after a consultation it was established that treatments with PRP were more suitable for him.

Alan, 23 year

Alan from Stockholm has been named Sweden’s best barber in 2019, and he runs with his father the salon Mannerståls Herrfrisering. Alan has had his first PRP treatment at the Nordic Hair Clinic and he thought the treatment would hurt, but he was pleasantly surprised that it is not felt much.

I’m not so afraid of needles, probably because I have diabetes. The treatment was fast, and I felt very relaxed. What hurt the most was when they took blood, Alan says.

Here's how PRP treatment is done:

  1. The first step is to take blood from the patient. Depending on the treatment, between 3 and 4 tubes will be taken.
  2. The blood is centrifuged to extract the plasma.
  3. When the blood is centrifuged, the plasma and red blood cells are divided. We only extract the plasma.
  4. Next, we inject the plasma into the scalp.
