hcPRP for the Scalp 2017-12-14T15:12:38+00:00

hcPRP scalp (highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma) is a procedure that delivers a unique blend of wound healing and growth factor platelets into the scalp to stimulate dormant and/or unhealthy hair follicles and improve the overall scalp health. This treatment is suitable for both men and women suffering from hair loss or thinning hair.

Benefits

  • hcPRP is the HIGHLY CONCENTRATED version of PRP
  • No risk of immune or disease transmission
  • Well tolerated, natural and safe

How it works

hcPRP contains platelets and growth factors that are pivotal in the repair and regeneration of tissues. Once injected into the scalp area a controlled inflammatory response is started which in essence “wakes up” the dormant follicles and jump starts the process of generating healthy hair.

What to expect

The hcPRP treatment takes less around 1.5 hours. A local anaesthetic is applied to the scalp prior to the treatment as a comfort measure. The area may be swollen and tender immediately following the treatment and due to the nature of the treatment bruising is a possibility.

Results

The scalp rejuvenation and hair stimulation results from hcPRP reach optimal stages around 6 months after the final treatment.

Recommended sessions

The protocol for this treatment is to repeat every 4 weeks for 3 to 6 sessions. As this is a natural way to stimulate hair growth with your own platelets the treatment can be repeated every 4 weeks as desired with no known ill side effects.

Possible downtime

  • Possible swelling for 1 – 5 days
  • Possible bruising at the injection sites
  • Possible temporary hair fall

Post treatment care

  • You may resume normal scalp treatments 12 hours post procedure
