PRP (Plateled Rich Plasma)

for obtaining healthier and stronger hair


PRP is a natural non-surgical treatment intended for men as well as for women. It enhances the desired results from a hair transplant procedure and on its own, it constitutes an efficient alternative for hair loss treatment. This injectable treatment uses a patient’s own blood.

The platelet concentrate stimulates stem cells of the hair follicles to evolve from a dormant state to a process of growth and strengthening. PRP is often used before, during and after a hair transplant.

PRP does not allow to regain hairs loss due to AGA (Androgenetic Alopecia). It does, however, contribute in slowing down hair loss and sometimes even bringing it to a halt by acting directly on the bulb and by strengthening it.

What is PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) ?

PRP is a natural substance obtained from the patient’s blood. A mere blood draw suffices to obtain it.

PRP is obtained by centrifuging the blood (the red blood cells are separated from the platelets). The red blood cells, being heavier, descend to the bottom while the platelet rich plasma rises to the surface. The plasma will be isolated and used for treatment.

This plasma, with a high concentration of platelets, is already used for a number of years in aesthetic surgery, in orthopaedics, in haematology and in dentistry as well as in the treatment of wounds and burns.

PRP has a proven effect on three areas within the hair transplant zone

Acting on the donor zone :

PRP favours regeneration. Scarring occurs up to 50% faster.

Acting on the recipient zone :

PRP is injected in order to optimise hair regrowth and to limit shedding of transitional hairs. PRP can also increase the hairs’ diameter and preserve the remaining hairs.

Preserving action :

PRP is added to the physiological saline in order to optimise the grafts’ survival rate during and after hair transplant.

What are the contra-indications for use of PRP ?

From an immunological point of view PRP is neutral. There is no risk of allergies, hyper-sensibility or foreign body reaction. The use of sterile instruments is very important.

From time to time, temporary inflammation can occur. The latter is the result of a reaction between PRP and platelets in the treated area.

How many treatments are required ?

Treatment unrelated to hair transplant :

The basic protocol is 3 to 4 sessions with an interval of 30 days. We advise a further 2 sessions per year to maintain the effect.

After a potential temporary hair loss peak (shedding of hairs in telogen phase), we usually notice an increase in hair already after the second session of PRP.

Hair texture improves and it becomes more shiny and silky. When regrowth is stimulated, it generally occurs two to three months after the start of the PRP sessions.

Treatment related to a hair transplant :

  • First session the day of your hair transplant procedure
  • Second session 3 months after your hair transplant procedure
  • The suggested maintenance treatment is 2 sessions per year.
