PRP HAIR LOSS AND THINNING HAIR TREATMENT INFORMATION

DLK’s Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves the collection of your blood, which is then centrifuged for the purpose of separating out the PRP.  Injected into the scalp, PRP stimulates the production of stem cells and stimulates hair regrowth.

Please read the information below and schedule a consultation to ensure that you are a suitable candidate for DLK’s PRP Treatment for hair loss and thinning hair.

BENEFITS:

  • Increases the diameter and thickness of the hair shaft;
  • Decreases hair loss and increases density of hair;
  • Triggers and maintains the growth phase of hair.

THE TREATMENT:
DLK’s PRP Treatment occurs in a medically-supervised clinic after consultation. During the consultation, your specific hair and skin concerns are addressed and a customized management plan is formulated. The treatment consists of a small amount of blood which is drawn from your arm. The sample is put into a centrifuge which separates the platelets.  The PRP is then injected into the treatment area.

THE SCIENCE OF PRP:
Your blood contains platelets and plasma, which contain growth factors and proteins. Plasma helps your blood to clot while PRP is the substance that promotes healing. It also contains proteins that support cell growth.  Injecting PRP into tissues stimulates your body to grow new, healthy cells. Tissue growth factors are more concentrated in the PRP which can also promote hair growth.

PRE-TREATMENT:
It is recommended to discontinue aspirin, aspirin-like products, blood thinners, St. John’s Wort, Vitamin E and alcohol one week before your treatment to minimize bruising and swelling.

POST-TREATMENT:
You will experience some mild redness and swelling in the treatment areas and your skin may feel more sensitive. There is a risk of bruising which usually resolves on its own.

THE RESULTS:
Results are generally seen in 3 to 6 months but results vary with each individual.  A typical treatment program is made up of  five treatments four weeks apart.   Maintenance treatment approximately every 6 months might be recommended for optimal results.
