Frequently asked

Questions

What is PRP?

Treatment with PRP consists of multiple superficial injections in the scalp of micro- droplets of serum. This serum contains a suspension of platelets where the red and white blood cells have been eliminated. Once injected under the skin, the platelets release powerful growth factors that act at the level of the hair follicles to stimulate growth and slow aging. Hair quality including texture, thickness, and pigment, are all greatly enhanced and the density is improved, especially if baldness is at an initial stage when it is still possible to reverse the process.

How long does a PRP treatment last?

The duration of a PRP treatment is 45-60 min plus 30 min of biostimulation to start (a helmet that emits special low-level lasers for scalp stimulation).

Is PRP treatment painful?

For some treatments, prior to injecting the plasma, local anesthesia or numbing cream may be used for sensitive clients. There is no pain after the treatment and no recovery time. Patients may experience a tingling or pinching sensation during the session but very tolerable.

Is there a downtime after the treatment?

The treatment is simple, quick, painless and without downtime with minimal side effects. There may be slight redness in the treated area, small bruises, tenderness and sometimes headaches.

How soon can I expect to see results?

A period of 6 months is recommended to see more realistic results, but they could also be seen before. The results vary from person to person since we are all different.

PRP should be placed in a global context of hair restoration which must include, depending on the seriousness of the problem, other therapeutic modalities, such as the prescription of drugs and sometimes traditional or follicular extraction hair transplantation. The patient will then take advantage of the synergy thus created, to achieve a more adequate control of hair loss.

How do I know if I am a good candidate?

Treatment with PRP is for all patients suffering from mild to moderate androgenetic alopecia (hereditary hair loss) or wishing to improve the quality of their hair.

Any patient undergoing a hair transplant is also a candidate for this treatment which will be carried out during the surgery to improve the survival rate of the grafts and accelerate their regrowth more quickly.

What areas can be treated with PRP?

We do PRP on the face, hair, and private parts.

How can I start?

A consultation with one of our doctors is necessary to assess whether you are a good candidate for PRP treatments.
