PRP Treatment Sydney
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is a 100% natural procedure that uses the body’s own growth factors to stimulate follicles and encourage new hair growth. PRP can be effectively used to stimulate newly transplanted follicles or to compliment an existing hair loss medication program.
The Crown Clinic is Sydney’s most popular destination for PRP and has performed over 2,000 PRP treatments.
PRP is a simple and safe process that is suitable and effective for both men and women in the early stages of hair loss. Treatments are performed with our specialist PRP team with visible results seen in 6 months.
Our Director James Nadin is featured in a this Beauty Crew article explaining PRP.
What is PRP?
Our body’s blood is constantly circulating – providing us with nutrition, oxygen, and waste removal. Blood is mostly liquid, with numerous cells and proteins suspended in it.
The liquid called plasma makes up about half the content of our blood. Plasma contains antibodies & transports nutrients such as salts, protein and enzymes throughout the body. Blood plasma also contains Platelets that in turn contain growth factors that repair damage and injuries.
PRP is derived from our own blood plasma concentrated with platelets. These concentrated platelets contain the proteins and growth factors needed to stimulate hair follicle growth, increase circulation to hair follicles and decrease the inflammation that accelerates hair loss.
The Crown Clinic only uses high quality PRP products and conducts the treatments in a sterile, clinical environment. This is a complete system designed to deliver an increased concentration of bioactive factors and proteins. Each component of the system has been optimised to assure the quality and efficacy of the product, for significant regenerative results. Substituting PRP approved materials for normal blood collecting tubes, or different anticoagulants, can alter the pH and behaviour of the final product.
How does it work?
The scalp is cleansed and numbing cream applied. While the scalp is prepared, a small amount of blood is drawn from the patient. This blood is then centrifuged to separate the blood components and produce the PRP which in turn is either injected or infused into the areas of hair loss. Patients are able to resume normal activities after this procedure.
All PRP treatments are performed in a sterile environment with our highly trained and experienced Registered Nurse / Phlebotomist.
PRP harnesses the growth factors carried in the blood supply and then delivers a concentrated dose back to the affected scalp and hair follicles. The growth factors in the platelets stimulate the follicles to grow hair. The hair follicles in the resting phase (telogen) may be pushed into growth, and this will appear as new hair growth.
PRP can be helpful in:
- slowing the rate of hair loss
- regrowing thinning hair to be thicker and fuller
- boosting the health and condition of the scalp
- stimulating collagen levels
- preparing the scalp for hair transplantation & post hair transplantation
PRP can also assist in the treatment of skin and scalp conditions such as:
- dry, itchy and inflamed scalp
- genetic hair loss
- alopecia areata
- telogen effluvium (commonly caused by stress)
