Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Treatment
Hair loss can be devastating to your self-esteem and confidence. For many people, their hair is a big part of them. Beginning to lose your hair can often make you feel like you are getting older. And yet it can start at a relatively young age. Hair loss sufferers often turn to a range of solutions to help them regain their hair.
Hair transplants are becoming an increasingly popular option for men, and sometimes women. The transplant is often coupled with Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) hair treatment, which can also be used on its own. PRP treatment aims to strengthen hair follicles and reawaken dormant ones.
What Can PRP Do for You?
Platelet-Rich Plasma therapy is delivered via an injection to the hair loss site. It helps your blood to use their growth factors and stimulate hair growth. It can give your hair follicles extra strength or reinvigorate any follicles that have become dormant. As well as being used as an individual treatment, it’s also excellent for use after a hair transplant.
Using PRP treatment can help to reduce redness, inflammation, and scabs. It gives newly transplanted hair follicles a better chance to flourish.
How It Works
So, how does PRP treatment work to stimulate hair growth? The procedure begins by extracting a small amount of blood from the patient. Don’t worry; it’s less than 50ml. Once the blood has been obtained, it is placed into a centrifugal machine. The force of the machine isolates the Platelet-Rich Plasma from the blood.
The PRP then undergoes “activation” using DNA activators. It’s also enriched with calcium ions, such as calcium chloride. Once the PRP has gone through this process, an injection applies it to the area that requires hair loss treatment.
What Results Can You Expect?
Like many types of therapy and medical treatment, there are no guarantees when it comes to PRP treatment. Each case is assessed individually, with some achieving more desirable results than others. It can take some time to see meaningful results after starting the therapy.
Many of our patients report excellent results that they are very happy with. Platelet-Rich Plasma treatment by Hair Transplant Glasgow could be for you. Look at some opinions of former and current patients, and discuss with our hair transplant specialist whether PRP is right for you.
Who Is It For?
Platelet Rich Plasma treatment for hair loss isn’t for everyone. There are a few circumstances that would prevent you from having it. For example, it is not recommended if you have a history of heavy smoking, drinking or drug use. Platelet dysfunction syndromes and other medical diagnoses can prevent you from having the treatment.
However, most people are suitable for the treatment and can see excellent results. The safe procedure is ideal for anyone who isn’t suitable for surgery or doesn’t want it. It’s also a great complement to a hair transplant to aid in healing and growth.

Had a great experience dealing with Kevin, Dr Kalra and the team. Kevin was very helpful and friendly through the whole process. When having the consultation he was very efficient and knowledgeable and was able to answer any questions I had. He was also very quick in getting back to me if I had any questions leading up to the day of the surgery. On the day of the surgery Dr Kalra and the team were brilliant throughout the day. They were really friendly and helpful and Dr Kalra kept me informed of the different stages of the surgery and answered any questions I had before and after the procedure. Would highly recommend going through HTG for anyone looking to get a transplant done.
