PRP Hair Restoration involves the injection of your own Growth Factors and/or Stem Cells into the area of thinning hair to stimulate hair production in miniaturised hair follices, as in Male and Female Pattern Hair Loss.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem Cells are a class of undifferentiated cells that have the potential to develop into a diverse range of specialised cells and tissues within the body, such as skin, nerve, muscle cells, etc. They can replicate indefinitely, and thus act as a repair system for the human body, replenishing damaged body tissue.
Stem cells are responsible for Hair Production during the Active Growth Phase (Anagen), where they divide rapidly at the root of the hair follicle.
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that is enriched with platelets. It contains and releases several different growth factors that stimulate stem cells, and thus the healing and regeneration of tissue.
What is involved in the PRP Hair Restoration procedure?
Typically one potent treatment is necessary and can last for up to 12 months or more. At this time it is possible to have further treatment to maintain results.
Three types of PRP-Stem Cell Hair Restoration Therapy are performed at Newin Institute.
How PRP for Hair Regrowth differs from other types of PRP?
PRP and Stem Cell therapies have been used for many years in the Orthopaedic field of medicine to repair damaged tendons, ligaments and cartilage.
However, visiting your local sports doctor or GP for treatment to the scalp for hair loss is unlikely to produce the same quality results for a number of reasons.
