Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment involves taking highly concentrated platelets and injecting them into a patient’s scalp.
To understand PRP, we have to know what platelets are. Platelets are a type of cell which along with red and white blood cells make up our blood. Their key roles are:
Before you go ahead with the procedure, you will have a thorough consultation with your doctor. This will include a physical examination, a discussion of your medical history as well as your current health status. You will also talk about your hair loss timeline, and whether you have had previous treatment for it. Based on all these factors, your eligibility will be determined. And if eligible, a treatment plan will be chalked up for you.
PRP requires several cycles, so do not expect to see results immediately. It is a process, but one that has been shown to have mostly positive outcomes. Bear in mind that PRP is an add-on treatment for most cases. It does not help substantial hair growth, but this varies on your level of hair loss.
Many hair transplant surgeons offer PRP post treatment, because it is known to release growth factors and to accelerate wound healing which together are thought to protect your hair grafts and make sure they grow well. It is important to know that there is no standardized protocol for PRP as of now. So make sure to speak to your doctor about the treatment, and undergo it at your own discretion.
The final costs of your PRP treatment will depend on the country of your choice, the exchange rate, the cost of living and the regulations present. Additionally, the amount of sessions will also decide the final cost.

They have gone the extra mile to make me feel cared for
I am halfway through a series of PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatments to prevent hair loss and make my hair stronger. Not only has the staff been very professional, but they have gone the extra mile to make me feel cared for, and my experience here has been nothing less than superb. Not to mention, procedures are also a fraction of the cost I would have been quoted in California and it's just 2 minutes from the border, so best deal ever! Totally worth it.
