Numerous studies have shown that using platelet-rich plasma (PRP) can be an effective therapeutic option for anyone experiencing hair loss, and is even able to treat hair loss conditions that have in the past been very difficult to treat. Our Vampire Hair Restoration treatment uses substances within the platelet portion of the patient’s own blood to stimulate new hair growth and reactive the dormant hair stem cells.

During your procedure, blood is drawn from you and prepared by separating and concentrating the platelet portion of the blood sample. your scalp is anaesthetized with a strong local and topical anesthetic cream and the platelet-rich plasma is injected into the numbed scalp in the areas of thinning and balding.

How PRP is Done

The platelet-rich plasma (PRP) that we harvest from your blood is activated and after injection, stimulates the hair follicles to do what they are programmed to do, grow.

For the hair regrowth, the PRP is injected directly into the scalp in a grid pattern over the entire thinning or bald area. Following the injections, platelet-rich plasma is applied for a second time topically. Following that application, we use a micro-needling device to activate the dormant follicles further. So, the follicles are stimulated from the surface and from underneath, a double whammy.

Following the procedure, patients can have redness, swelling and itchiness (which may last for one to two days) in the treatment area, which may last for up to 2-3 days.

Regrowth from each procedure will start usually after about

3-4 weeks. 

For this hair regrowth treatment to work best for you consult with

Dr. Jabbar about use of dihydroxy testosterone (the hair loss hormone) blockers like minoxidil and finasteride. These have been shown to keep the hair regrowth healthy by blocking the body’s natural hormone that leads to hair loss.
