The Effects Of Platelets On Your Hair

The platelet concentrate is known for its revitalising and repairing superpowers. This platelet concentration (1 million per μl) is higher than the entire blood circulating your body.

Once injected into the scalp, these platelets (red blood cells) gradually release the innate “growth factors”. These growth factors will then stimulate the stem cells of the hair follicles and promote the formation of new blood vessels also known as Neovascularization. This formation unlocks and enables an improved irrigation of the scalp.

Therefore, PRP helps the hair by:

  • Slowing down the process of hair loss
  • Encouraging hair regrowth
  • Increasing hair density and diameter
  • Improving texture

What happens in a PRP session?

The first step in PRP, is to collect your blood in a specific tube containing a substance. The tube is then centrifuged at 3400 rpm for 5 minutes until it turns into a gel and separates the platelet-rich plasma from the red blood cells.

Next, we inject PRP into the scalp using micro-needling via a state-of-the-art mesotherapy gun that distributes PRP in a homogeneous way without any pain.
