Mr Olivier Amar says, “PRP scalp treatment is an intense non-surgical treatment that can help slow hair loss – an issue which affects more and more men and women and can affect self-esteem and confidence.”
WHAT IS PRP FOR HAIR?
PRP, also known as Platelet Rich Plasma, is a natural, non-surgical treatment that uses the regenerative power of your own blood. Blood contains platelets and other cells that naturally work to heal damaged or aged tissues. Platelets play a vital role in healing by releasing growth factors, which are proteins that stimulate the growth and repair of specific tissues.
WHY CONSIDER PRP FOR HAIR?
RegenLab PRP is a super-concentrated, bespoke form of PRP which when injected into the scalp, can act like a fertiliser to the follicles, slowing down and reducing hair loss.
It can be used alongside other hair loss treatments, such as pharmaceutical products, hair transplant surgery, nano fat to scalp or Mr Olivier Amar’s specialised fat transfer system Kerastem, which can help regrow lost hair.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE TREATMENT?
For your safety, Mr Olivier Amar first personally examines every patient and takes a medical history before considering the correct course of treatment for them.
Around 60mls – of blood will be taken from your arm by the same method as a blood test. This blood is then placed in a centrifuge for around 25 minutes, to extract and separate regenerative blood cells which are concentrated in the plasma, or clear, liquid part of the blood. The exact concentration of platelets and other blood components in your PRP solution will be precisely adjusted according to the condition being treated.
This super-enriched form of PRP will then be ready to infuse into the scalp to encourage hair growth.
If you are having hair loss treatment, your scalp will first be numbed using a local anaesthetic to ensure your comfort. Treatment takes around one hour. For optimum results, Mr Olivier Amar recommends two to three treatments, four weeks apart, plus a yearly maintenance treatment. After your first treatment the concentration of growth factor is quite high but this drops in the 3-4 weeks following treatment, to keep the growth factor consistently high until an optimum level is reached, a second and third session is recommended.
