Everything You Need to Know About PRP Treatment for Hair Regrowth
Normally, every individual sheds about 50–100 hair strands a day. Although this may sound alarming, new ones grow back naturally to replace them. Bald patches or thinning occurs when you lose more hair than is replenished. If you are looking for hair loss treatments, Redwood Beauty Group Inc. is the place for you. If you have tried several cures which were ineffective, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment could be the best option for you. It helps promote hair regrowth and does not have many side-effects. We also offer laser resurfacing and medical rejuvenation services.
What Is PRP Treatment and How Does It Work?
PRP treatment is an all-natural autologous medical procedure performed by doctors. A concentration of plasma with platelets, it helps in stimulating skin cells when injected into the scalp. The human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and other components. These cells contain specific growth factors, which assist in tissue regeneration and enhance hair follicle functions.
Is Everyone Eligible for PRP?
PRP is safe and natural. It can be used to treat most individuals. But there are certain medical conditions or lifestyle practices that need to be considered before starting this procedure such as:
- Being bald or having low-density hair makes you ineligible for PRP.
- You must not smoke or drink alcohol frequently.
- It is necessary for you to stop taking drugs.
- You must not be suffering from chronic skin, liver disease, cancer or metabolic disorders.
- You must not use blood thinners.
- You shouldn’t be diagnosed with blood disorders like platelet dysfunction syndrome, thrombocytopenia, and hemodynamic instability.

Procedure involved in PRP therapy
To ascertain your eligibility for the procedure, you may have to undergo certain medical tests. The doctor will want information on the medications you take, your hair care regimen, and recent surgeries. A general physical examination may also be required.
Extraction of PRP
Before the start of each session, around 30 to 60 ml of blood (based on the size of the area to be treated) will be drawn from you. This will be spun in a centrifuge and to separate the PRP from it.
The area on your scalp where hair needs to be restored will be marked by the doctor. This area will then be anesthetized to ensure you don’t feel any pain. This is followed by injecting highly concentrated PRP into your scalp without any medication or sedation.
Some doctors perform a procedure called micro-needling along with PRP hair treatment. Micro holes are created on the scalp using a derma roller or an insulin syringe. These micro-injuries trigger the scalp’s skin repair process, making it produce collagen and elastin. This creates an ideal environment for your own natural hair to regrow while facilitating quick absorption of the injected PRP.
Your hair will be thoroughly cleaned after a PRP treatment. You may experience soreness, some pain and bleeding in the areas where injections were administered. The skin of your scalp may feel taut, and you may suffer from a headache after the procedure.
Advantages of PRP therapy
PRP has several advantages over other hair growth methods. Some of them are listed below:
- It has very few side-effects.
- With less recovery time, you may resume daily tasks immediately after the procedure.
- It is a minimally invasive treatment.
- The process is quick, requiring only about 60 to 90 minutes to complete.
It can also be used as a non-surgical approach for patients who are unfit for surgery or who want to delay it.
PRP therapy makes your hair appear thicker and prevents loss for a while. However, the treatment may have to be repeated every year to maintain good results. Whether you are looking for laser skin resurfacing or PRP treatment in Toronto, contact us today!
