PRP Hair Loss
PRP Hair Loss Treatments Vancouver
When you have a thinning head of hair or are balding, you can feel self-conscious and insecure about your appearance. It’s hard to maintain a positive outlook on life when the way people see you is so different from how you perceive yourself.
For some people who experience male pattern baldness, it can lead to anxiety and depression. Luckily there are treatments for this condition that help reverse the effects of hair loss.
One such solution is PRP hair loss treatments which use plasma rich in growth factors to stimulate hair follicles and encourage new hair growth while reducing inflammation around the scalp.
In recent studies, men with early-stage male pattern baldness saw an average increase of nearly 18% in their density within only six months!
Women saw similar results, with an average increase in density of 16%. PRP is a much better alternative than the older hair transplant procedures that used plugs of skin with hairs.
How does PRP treatment work?
Hair loss is the result of genetic factors and hormones. When a hair follicle goes into hibernation, it causes the hair to thin and eventually fall out.
The PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapy for hair uses your blood plasma which contains growth factors that activate dormant hair follicles, fortifying the hair root and stimulating new healthy growth.
The PRP hair loss treatment makes it easier for the follicles to access oxygen and nutrients, along with preventing future hair loss even after treatments are discontinued.
Injecting plasma rich in growth factors has been shown to boost collagen production beneath the scalp skin as well as thicken existing hair.
The rush of vitamins, growth factors, and antioxidants when properly injected at the target sites, activates dormant hair follicles and makes existing hair fuller, and thicker.
A PRP hair treatment is a quick non-surgical alternative to surgery and can help you get back to feeling confident and enjoying life.

Types of Hair Loss Hair PRP Can Treat
PRP Hair Loss Procedure
The PRP treatment involves taking a sample of your blood, plasma and platelets are separated then injected back into the scalp. The PRP injection contains hyaluronic acid which helps to hydrate the skin and stimulate collagen production.
After PRP treatment for hair loss, a topical anesthetic is placed on the scalp to make you more comfortable during the PRP injection process. Topical anesthetics are applied and PRP injections take place in four sections of the scalp.
PRP Vs Hair Transplants
The PRP hair loss treatment is much better than transplants with plugs of skin-bearing hairs because there is no surgery involved. Treatment improves hair quality while increasing the number of healthy hair follicles and strengthening current roots.
By using PRP, the hair follicles will be stimulated to grow back thicker and stronger.
Hair transplants, on the other hand, are invasive procedures where plugs of skin with hairs are grafted onto bald areas on the scalp. A PRP treatment uses your plasma to stimulate dormant roots and make existing hair healthier.
This PRP treatment is a great non-surgical alternative to hair implantation and is proven effective.
