PRP hair Restoration Before and After
PRP Hair Restoration, also known as vampire hair restoration, offers non-surgical hair restoration, stimulating hair growth using the patient’s own platelet rich plasma (PRP.) PRP hair restoration is ideal for both men and women and is commonly used in collaboration with surgical hair transplants to improve outcome and accelerate the healing process. PRP is also a popular stand-alone hair treatment, performed to improve thinning hair by increasing hair count and hair density and to fortify existing hair by strengthening hair follicles. This minimally invasive procedure leaves no scars and does not require lengthy recovery times. Best of all, results are dramatic and long lasting, leaving you with a thick, full head of hair.

How Does PRP Hair Treatments Work?
PRP hair restoration cultivates essential growth hormones from the patient’s own blood. These growth factors are then injected into the dermis of the scalp. To begin, a sample of blood is drawn from the patient. The blood sample is then put into a centrifuge. This spins the blood, separating the platelets from the red blood cells. These platelets contain more than 5x the amount of growth factors than regular blood and may include: Keratinocyte growth factor, Insulin-like growth factor 1, Platelet-derived growth factor, Vascular endothelial growth factor, and more.
The principle behind Platelet Rich Plasma in Hair Restoration
Platelets are essential to your body’s healing process. When you are wounded, your body sends platelets to the injury site to aid in clotting the blood. Besides stopping the bleeding, platelets contain hundreds of proteins known as growth factors. These proteins stimulate healing. PRP is used in various treatments, including skin rejuvenation, post-surgical rehabilitation, and is commonly injected into injured tendons, fractures, and other injuries to facilitate healing and speed up recovery. When PRP is injected and activated into the scalp, it is shown to improve the thickness and density of hair and improve the outcome of other hair loss treatments, such as a surgical hair transplant.
Numerous studies have measured the effectiveness of PRP injections on alopecia.
Injections of platelet-rich plasma for androgenic alopecia: A systematic review published in the Journal of stomatology, oral and maxillofacial surgery in 2017 concluded, “the use of PRP injections in patients with androgenic alopecia seems effective with respect to promoting lost hair regrowth, decreasing hair loss and increasing hair thickness.”
The Effect of Platelet-Rich Plasma in Hair Regrowth: A Randomized Placebo-Controlled Trial published in The Journal of Stem Cell Transitional Medicine in 2015 reported “At the end of the 3 treatment cycles, the patients presented clinical improvement in the mean number of hairs, with a mean increase of 33.6 hairs in the target area and a mean increase in total hair density of 45.9 hairs per cm² compared with baseline values. No side effects were noted during treatment. The data clearly highlight the positive effects of PRP injections on male pattern hair loss and absence of major side effects. PRP may serve as a safe and effective treatment option against hair loss; more extensive controlled studies are needed.”
Platelet-Rich Plasma in Androgenic Alopecia published in the Journal of Cutaneous and Aesthetic Surgery concluded that “PRP injection for androgenic alopecia is a simple, cost-effective and feasible treatment option for hair loss and can be regarded as a valuable adjuvant treatment modality for androgenic alopecia,” and “PRP hair treatment is a promising treatment option for patients with thinning hair.”
