PRP Hair Loss Melbourne
PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma is used by doctors to increase the healing of injury or disease in the body, but it’s also used as part of our clinically-proven hair loss treatment. If your hair loss is caused by androgenetic alopecia (also called male or female-pattern baldness) PRP is a popular treatment available at Bioscor in Melbourne.
What is PRP?
PRP helps to repair tissue by providing proteins and growth factors that accelerate healing. Blood contains platelets and red and white blood cells. As an example, if you sustain a cut or wound, the body’s first response is to send platelets to the site to stop any bleeding and to help with the healing process. Researchers theorised that if they injected concentrated platelets into wounds, this could help in providing a faster healing process. Since then, many studies have shown that PRP has been effective for the treatment of androgenetic alopecia*. Our PRP hair loss treatments at Bioscor help hair to regrow by reducing the follicle shrinkage and prolonging the anagen phase (the growth phase for hairs).
How Is PRP Produced?
Bioscor experts in Melbourne firstly take blood samples from you as a PRP client. The amount of blood taken from you as one of our PRP hair loss treatment Melbourne clients depends on the extent of your hair loss. This blood sample is then placed in a centrifuge which spins rapidly, separating all the components. Afterwards, the platelets are extracted for injection into your affected scalp areas. Our PRP treatments are offered in conjunction with our natural hair regrowth program, including several take-home hair loss treatment kits that you can apply in the convenience of your own home.
