PRP Hair Restoration

Description

Androgenic alopecia or male pattern baldness is a very common type of hair loss observed in both males and females. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is an autologous preparation of platelets in concentrated plasma that can be injected under the skin to promote hair regrowth.

Benefits

The release growth factors with PRP injections act on stem cells in the area of the follicles, stimulating the development of new follicles and promoting neovascularization.  This can result in moderate improvement in hair volume and coverage.

​Treatable Areas

Scalp.

Pretreatment Instructions

  • Avoid NSAID use 1 week prior to the procedure (Aleve, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Advil). 
  • Avoid coloring hair 2 weeks prior to the procedure.
  • Please prepare for the procedure by eating a full meal at least 2-3 hours beforehand. 
  • Drink plenty of fluids the day of and day prior to the procedure.

On the day of the procedure:

  • Shower the morning of your treatment and wash your hair very thoroughly using your regular shampoo.
  • Do not apply sprays, gels, or any other styling products to your hair.
  • If you wear a hair system, please remove it prior to shampooing and do not wear it before your PRP treatments.
  • Please eat a normal breakfast or lunch the day of your PRP session.
  • Drink a bottle of water (500 mL) at least 2 hours before your session.

Expectations

When you arrive for your treatment, a registered nurse will draw your blood.  The blood is then centrifuged in a sterile container and injected into the scalp through nearly pain-free device.  We utilize the U225 gun which provides uniform injection deep at the hair root to maximize hair growth. Depending on the treatment area, it can be done in under 30 minutes.

Recommended Sessions

For best results, 3 – 6 monthly treatments may be required.  Maintenance treatments every 6-12 months following the initial course is recommended for continued results.

Anticipated Results

New hair growth is typically noticed after the 2nd or 3rd treatment, with the maximum effect occurring 3-9 months following the 3rd treatment.

Side Effects

Most patients do not experience any side effects but some pain and discomfort with the injections can occur.  

Potential side effects include:

  • Bruising. swelling, or pain at injection sites
  • Allergic response or anaphylaxis to anesthetics
  • Nerve damage from injections.
  • Small risk of infection at the injection site, although the risk is overall reduced with PRP compared to other injections

Cost

Treatments are $650 per session, $1500 for a package of 3

Patient Testimonials

"My doctor recently moved to this clinic and I’m so happy that she did! The receptionists are great, the nurse is so caring and sweet, and the design of the office is relaxing and clean. And of course, Dr. Mackie is amazing."

Elizabeth Goldstone

"Dr. Gates Manhas is my primary care physician and she's the best doctor I've ever had. She is a compassionate listener and she always does a fantastic job of walking me through her thought process of a diagnosis, and always offers great advice and clear explanation of treatment options/testing. Can't recommend her enough!"

Katie De Sousa

"We’ve been patients of Dr. Amritpaul Manhas for almost 2 years. He’s so caring, what a rare thing is to find a doctor that listens. His colleagues are the exact same way. The clinic is big, well equipped, and everything works well. Manhas Medical has been my best medical experience since moving to Canada in 2014. I really appreciate you all and I’m grateful to have found you, Dr. Paul."
