PRP for the treatment of hair loss has been very successful for conditions such as alopecia areata and androgenic alopecia (hereditary male or female hair loss). Research has shown that Platelet Rich Plasma offers improvement in hair growth in many patients. Cytokines and growth factors (the healing properties of the blood) found in platelets can be concentrated and then injected into the areas of thinning hair to stimulate hair growth and prevent further hair loss.
Who Can Get PRP Treatment for Hair Loss?
Any person suffering hair loss from alopecia areata or male or female pattern baldness is a candidate for treatment. Alopecia areata (also known as spot baldness) is an autoimmune disease in which hair is lost from some or all areas of the body, usually from the scalp. Androgenic alopecia (known as male or female pattern hair loss) is the most common cause of hair loss and by the age of 50 affects half of males and a quarter of females.
The sooner the hair loss is treated the more hair follicles that can be saved to prevent permanent baldness. PRP will not work in areas where there are no active hair follicles. This is determined using a specialized camera on the scalp. Thin and wispy hair where the hair follicles are still active will respond the best to PRP treatment.
At Amwaj Polyclinic, we offer hair loss treatments with promising cutting-edge technology to correct hair loss, which affects many men and women.
Through a unique combination of Mesotherapy, a combined non-invasive therapy utilising a wide range of minerals, vitamins, amino acids, nucleic acids and co-enzymes, and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections, our highly efficient method stimulates and nourishes the blood circulation in your hair capillaries, optimally stimulating the normal growth of your hair, strengthening the hair follicle and revitalizing cellular repair.
This technology uses autologous (from your own body) stem cells and is the latest therapeutic solution to naturally restore hair strength and growth.
Another treatment uses Adipose (fat tissue) Derived Cells (ADC), which are known to promote hair growth in vitro and have been used in clinical studies of treatments for androgenic alopecia or female pattern hair loss (FPHL).
The procedure is simple. A sample of ADC is taken using a simple micro-liposuction procedure with no need for surgery. The collection does not require dedicated equipment and/or kits, but simply a standard syringe.
