HAIR LOSS TREATMENTS

You look in the mirror and you notice your part looks wider, and there's more scalp peeking through your hair.   

 

Androgenetic alopecia (AGA) is a common hair loss disorder caused by genetic and hormonal factors that studies show is not unique to men:  by the age of 60, 45% of men and 35% of women are affected.  Hair loss can particularly affect a woman's emotional well-being and quality of life because they may view it as less socially acceptable for them.

Thankfully, according to a multiple scientific reviews, plasma injection treatment is an effective treatment modality for androgenetic alopecia!  (source)

PLASMA SCALP INJECTIONS

$550

For the medical treatment of hair loss or thinning, an infusion of your body's own plasma can help grow it back by reversing the shrinkage of hair follicles which occurs during androgenetic alopecia (or common baldness).

Our medical practitioners draw your blood, divide it into its separate components, recombine the blood fluid (plasma) with the highest concentration of platelets, and introduce the resulting preparation back into the scalp in the area where hair is thinning.

Treatments required: 3-4

Session time: 1hr

FAQ

PLASMA HAIR TREATMENT

How long does a plasma treatment for hair loss take?


The plasma treatment for hair loss prevention and hair restoration will usually take 30 to 45 minutes.




How much do plasma treatments cost, and how many are required?


Plasma injections are $550 per session. We'll know more after your consultation, but full treatment usually requires four sessions at intervals of about two to six weeks. Ideally, maintenance sessions are done every three to six months. To help you maintain results, we offer a complimentary follow-up session one-month after your treatment (with the purchase of a package). As with all treatments, results may vary.




What kinds of results can I expect?


This depends on the patient, however results can be progressively seen starting a few weeks following initial treatment. On average, hair density improvement of 25 to 30% can be expected, but results will vary as a function of the ability of the follicular bulb to regenerate in each individual. We make sure to take plenty of pictures so we can collaboratively review effectiveness. In one study(a), results showed a significant increase in the rate of hair growth observed between the third and sixth months. Hair density followed a rising trend with a peak at 3 months. Patients with II-III grade of alopecia had better results compared to patients with more advanced alopecia. Further, a 2019 literature review of the most recent studies (b) reported that PRP demonstrated efficacy as a treatment modality for androgenetic alopecia. As with all treatments, results may vary.

Am I a good candidate for plasma hair loss treatments?


Clients suffering from mild to moderate androgenetic alopecia (hereditary male or female pattern baldness) wishing to improve the quality of their hair are suitable for plasma treatments. The best candidates have hair that is thinning, but not totally bald. As with all treatments, results may vary.




Does it hurt?


Prior to the PRP injections, a prescription-strength topical numbing cream will be applied for additional comfort. Some patients may experience mild discomfort during injections, but the procedure is generally well-tolerated by clients. We have a very compassionate team that is always with you to ensure you're well supported!
