Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) For Hair Loss
At Mmedi Spa, we perform platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss. PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
How Does PRP Work?
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and contain specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP therapy has established itself to be effective as a medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine and orthopedics.
It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last two decades with positive outcomes . It is also used commonly by professional athletes for quick return from their injuries. In the field of hair restoration, existing evidence demonstrates PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
While PRP is in the early stages of scientific research in hair restoration, PRP is not meant to replace current Health Canada approved therapies such as DHT blockers, laser and Minoxidil therapies-a very effective non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss.
