What does the procedure involve?
PRP is an autologous treatment, meaning that it is only your own cells being put back into your scalp. 8-24ml of your blood is collected in a similar way to a blood test. This is spun down in a centrifuge using the specially designed PRP tube that separates the PRP from the red blood cells. The PRP portion of the tube is then drawn up into a syringe ready for re-injection into the scalp. A tiny quantity of platelet activator called Calcium Chloride may be added, which is found naturally in your blood. Topical anaesthetic cream may be applied before injection, meaning re-injection causes little to no pain.
