Hair Restoration Treatment

More then 85% of men will experience some level of hair loss at some point in their lives. Some men will even start losing hair before they hit their 21st birthday! There are many reasons why some men experience hair loss, including:

  • Male pattern baldness (also called androgenic alopecia)
  • Problems with diet (lack of iron, for example)
  • Certain illnesses (including thyroid problems or anemia)
  • Emotional factors (such as stress and anxiety)
  • Scalp infections
  • Some medications (including blood thinners)

The most common cause of hair loss in men is male pattern baldness, which involves the hereditary weakening and shrinking of hair follicles. 95% of all men experiencing hair loss suffer from male pattern baldness.

The PRP Therapy is an innovative hair restoration treatment that works by injecting platelet rich plasma into specific areas of the scalp. Platelet Rich Plasma injections are made of a serum containing the patient’s own blood platelets to stimulate new cell growth. The procedure is meant to:

  • Recruit new hairs to grow
  • Invigorate and revitalize existing hair
  • Stimulate the stem cells that are around the follicles to get thicker

The therapy is non-surgical, with little to no side effects or risk of allergic reaction*.

What Are PRP Injections for Male Pattern Baldness?

Human blood is composed of red blood cells (93%), white blood cells (6%), and platelets and plasma (1%). Platelet rich plasma (or PRP), concentrates on separating that 1%, creating a concentrated serum of platelets. Although they are known for their coagulating properties (to stop bleeding), platelets also release growth factors that recruit reparative cells and, hence, revitalize and heal tissues. In other words, platelets are cells that help soft tissue to heal and grow new cells. For this reason, PRP injections have a long history of success in treating sports injuries, arthritis, tendinitis, and other painful conditions.

In cosmetic medicine, PRP injections are used to treat specific areas of the skin to promote collagen growth and regenerate tissue. In hair restoration therapy, PRP results have been very promising and offer an effective solution to hair growth and thickening for a majority of patients.

PRP Injections are highly effective for both men and women. Benefits include*:

  • No risks of allergic reaction
  • Minimal pain or discomfort
  • Safe, non-invasive and non-surgical treatment
  • Minimal side effects
IT’S NOT MAGIC, IT’S SCIENCE

How Does the PRP
Hair Restoration Treatment Work?

Injections and Microneedling

PRP is a groundbreaking medical treatment that improves hair growth* and naturally reverses thinning hair.

When PRP is inserted into the skin, the injection causes a small injury that activates the platelets and allows them to do what they do best: generate growth. Platelets do this by releasing healing proteins that are called growth factors. When platelet levels are extremely above their normal concentration (which is what happens during the PRP treatment), it boosts the follicle’s ability to become thicker.

Benefits of PRP for Thinning Hair

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) stimulates cell growth in the injected area. PRP aids the hair growth process, without the use of chemicals or foreign substances. PRP does not cause allergic reactions or infections, because the injected plasma comes from the patient’s own body.

PRP benefits include*:

  • Improved hair texture and thickness
  • Increase in hair volume
  • Hair looks healthier

The treatment has proven to be most effective for patients who are at the initial stage of hair loss. Therefore, if you are noticing an overall loss of volume in your hair, are starting to develop a receding hair line or have noticed small bald spots on your scalp, contact us today.

FIND-OUT IF PRP INJECTIONS ARE RIGHT FOR YOU.

What to Expect

A simple, virtually painless procedure, conveniently done at our Montreal clinic.

When you will first arrive at your appointment, we will begin with a simple blood draw, just like a routine blood test. Then, using a proprietary technique, platelets and plasma will be separated and concentrated into a serum that will be ready to be injected into the skin. We will then take a picture of the treated area (to serve as a baseline to follow the hair restoration) and we will then apply an anesthetic cream to the treatment area. Once the anesthetic cream takes effect, we will begin the treatment.

The treatment consists of two stages. During the first stage, we will use a microneedling pen to make multiple superficial microscopic perforations into the scalp and then gently apply the PRP serum onto the microneedled area. The second stage consists in injecting additional PRP into the scalp with the use of a very fine needle. This is done to ensure the platelet rich plasma reaches the deeper hair follicles.

PRP injections are virtually painless and can be used by most candidates. The procedure lasts approximately 40 minutes. However, overall appointment duration will be a little over 1 hour for blood drawing and processing, as well as anesthetic cream application.

After the Treatment

Following the treatment, most people will experience heat, redness and mild to moderate swelling in the treated area. However, this will only last 1 to 2 days. Cold compresses will help reduce discomfort and swelling. Bruising can also occur and may last several days.
