PRP to treat hair loss

What is hair PRP?

PRP therapy is a new and natural non-surgical option for patients experiencing hair loss. Here at Surecell, we have seen patients improve tremendously after treatments, and clinical studies provide evidence that PRP stimulates hair growth. The cells and growth factors in PRP encourages the growth of hair follicles.

Who is a good candidate for hair PRP?

PRP is a great solution for both men and women, especially when hair transplant surgery is not an option. PRP injections can stimulate new hair growth in people who suffer from male or female pattern baldness (also known as androgenetic alopecia). The male hair procedure is sometimes referred to as “PRP Vampire Hair Raising.”

Medications used to restore hair can be used in conjunction with PRP, only if the patient can tolerate the medication used. PRP can also be combined with Minoxidil lotion or used after a hair transplantation for an even better effect. 

PRP for hair loss and post hair transplantation

PRP can also be used in combination with hair transplantation. Studies have shown that PRP, when injected post hair transplantation, can enhance hair density, graft uptake, hair thickness and quality of hair growth. 

PRP treats the following types of hair loss:​

  • Androgenetic alopecia (male or female pattern baldness)

  • Alopecia areata

  • Traction alopecia

  • Telogen effluvium

PRP injections can also prevent further hair loss and slow down the rate of thinning. Talk to one of our doctors if you are unsure of the type of hair loss you are experiencing. 

Benefits of PRP for hair loss

  • Non-surgical: PRP injections for hair loss are a non-surgical treatment option, which means that they do not involve any incisions or anaesthesia. This makes the treatment safer and more comfortable than surgical hair restoration procedures, such as hair transplants.

  • Minimal downtime: Unlike surgical hair restoration procedures, which can require several weeks of downtime, PRP injections for hair loss have minimal downtime. Patients can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

  • Natural results: PRP injections for hair loss provide natural-looking results because they promote the growth of the patient's own hair. This means that the new hair blends in seamlessly with the patient's existing hair, creating a natural-looking hairline.

  • Safe: PRP injections for hair loss are a safe treatment option because they use the patient's own blood, eliminating the risk of allergic reactions or transmission of infections.

  • Cost-effective: PRP injections for hair loss are a cost-effective treatment option compared to surgical hair restoration procedures. This makes it a more accessible option for patients who may not be able to afford surgical hair restoration.

What does PRP for hair loss involve?​

  • A nurse will take your blood (like a normal blood test).

  • The blood is then spun in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP which contains a large concentration of growth factors and platelets integral to healing and regeneration.

  • The area to be treated is washed and local anaesthetic cream is applied.

  • The PRP is then injected directly into the scalp area where the hair is currently thinning.


The procedure will take approximately 60 minutes, and the PRP treatment is usually performed every 4 to 6 weeks for three sessions.

  • How many injections will I need?
    Frequency and number of treatments will depend on how severe the condition is. For chronic joint injuries such as osteoarthritis, we recommend a course of three sessions, one week apart, followed by annual top up sessions. For soft tissue injuries such as tendon tears, treatment involves three injections, two weeks apart. For the treatment of burns or scars, treatment frequency will depend on severity.

  • What is the difference between PRP and stem cells?
    PRP contains natural growth factors and vital proteins that can help heal injured areas of soft tissue. PRP is used to treat conditions that often have the ability to heal themselves but may require a “jumpstart”, whereas stem cells are used in cases of more advanced conditions such as degenerative arthritis, bony defects, and in cases of spinal disc degeneration.
  • Are there any side effects of PRP injections?
    After PRP is taken from your own blood, there are no risks of disease transmission or allergic reactions. Sometimes PRP may aggravate the inflammatory response, causing a temporary increase in pain and swelling of the injured area. There may also be a local pressure effect from the injection of the fluid. These effects should subside within a few hours to days. If pain is severe, contact the doctor.
