Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
Hair Restoration

Growth factors and cytokines contained in platelet-rich plasma increase hair density
and quality by stimulating hair follicles and improving blood supply to the scalp.

Overview of PRP Hair Restoration Treatments

Androgenic alopecia is the most common form of hair loss, affecting both men and women.​​ 11. Semalty M, Semalty A, Joshi G, Rawat M. Hair growth and rejuvenation: an overview. J Dermatolog Treat. 2011;22(3):123-132. doi:10.3109/09546630903578574​ Hair loss increases with age, affecting 30% of men by the age of 30 and 50% by the age of 50.​ 22. York K, Meah N, Bhoyrul B, Sinclair R. Treatment review for male pattern hair-loss. Expert Opin Pharmacother. Published online February 17, 2020:1-10. doi:10.1080/14656566.2020.1721463​ PRP hair treatment is safe and effective​​ 33. Betsi E-E, Germain E, Kalbermatten DF, Tremp M, Emmenegger V. Platelet-rich plasma injection is effective and safe for the treatment of alopecia. Eur J Plast Surg. Published online March 14, 2013:407-412. doi:10.1007/s00238-013-0816-5​ which takes advantage of growth factors and cytokines contained in platelet-rich plasma to increase hair density and quality by stimulating hair follicles and improving blood supply to the scalp.

The past ten years has seen a tremendous increase in the number of published studies on the use of PRP hair treatments for androgenic alopecia, with most studies showing a positive benefit.

What does the evidence say about PRP Hair treatments?

One recent review from the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology looked at six studies involving 177 patients.​​ 44. Giordano S, Romeo M, Lankinen P. Platelet-rich plasma for androgenetic alopecia: Does it work? Evidence from meta analysis. J Cosmet Dermatol. 2017;16(3):374-381. doi:10.1111/jocd.12331​ They demonstrated a significant overall increase in the number of hairs of 17.90 per cm² as well as an increase in hair thickness cross section.​​ 44. Giordano S, Romeo M, Lankinen P. Platelet-rich plasma for androgenetic alopecia: Does it work? Evidence from meta analysis. J Cosmet Dermatol. 2017;16(3):374-381. doi:10.1111/jocd.12331

Another review of 12 studies showed that in all but two, there was significant benefit from PRP injections. In the two studies which did not show benefit, there were only 1 or 2 treatments, and in one study, the PRP was not activated prior to injection.​ 55. Cervantes J, Perper M, Wong LL, et al. Effectiveness of Platelet-Rich Plasma for Androgenetic Alopecia: A Review of the Literature. Skin Appendage Disord. Published online June 24, 2017:1-11. doi:10.1159/000477671

How many PRP Hair treatments are needed?

The number and frequency of PRP hair treatments seems to be important. Most studies seem to show that monthly injections for 3-4 sessions are important, whereas waiting longer than one month between injections is not as beneficial. A study published by the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery recently looked at 40 patients: 20 patients received a total of 4 PRP hair injection treatments – once a month for 3 months, followed by a booster 3 months later; the other 20 patients received two total treatments, with 3 months separation between sessions. ​6​ Measurements at 6 months showed that both groups had improvement, but the group that had two extra treatments had over 400% better response compared with the first group, in terms of hair count per cm² (29.6 vs 7.2; p < 0.001). These measurements were taken at the actively balding area near the front of the hairline.​​ 66. Hausauer AK, Jones DH.

Published online September 2018:1191-1200. doi:10.1097/dss.0000000000001567

Another systematic review and meta-analysis by Gupta et al in 2019 also concluded that initially 3 monthly PRP injections should be given for hair restoration.​​ 77. Gupta A, Versteeg S, Rapaport J, Hausauer A, Shear N, Piguet V. The Efficacy of Platelet-Rich Plasma in the Field of Hair Restoration and Facial Aesthetics-A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis. J Cutan Med Surg. 2019;23(2):185-203. doi:10.1177/1203475418818073

A recent article published in the International Journal of Women’s Dermatology looked at 9 previous studies and recommended a treatment protocol of monthly sessions for the first 3 months, then every 3 – 6 months for the first year. ​​ 88. Stevens J, Khetarpal S. Platelet-rich plasma for androgenetic alopecia: A review of the literature and proposed treatment protocol. Int J Womens Dermatol. 2018;5(1):46-51. doi:10.1016/j.ijwd.2018.08.004​ They reported positive results in terms of hair regrowth, increase hair density and patient satisfaction.

How many PRP Hair treatments are needed? (Continued)

In another small study, eleven patients who were not responding well even after 6 months treatment with minoxidil and finasteride, received PRP injections every two weeks for a total of four treatments. After three months, there was an average increase of 22 in the number of hairs per cm². (71 → 93).​ 99. Khatu S, More Y, Gokhale N, Chavhan D, Bendsure N.

How to get the best PRP hair treatments?

After doing extensive research about PRP hair treatments, combined with years of treating patients, here’s what we believe are the most important factors to get best results with PRP hair treatments:
1. Quality of PRP preparation.
2. Injection Technique.
3. Frequency of treatments.
4. Combining PRP with other treatments for hair loss.


Frequently Asked Questions

1How do PRP hair treatments work?

A small blood sample is taken and processed using a centrifuge in order to isolate and carefully concentrate the platelets to create high concentration, double-spin platelet rich plasma, PRP. The PRP is then activated with a small solution of calcium chloride and injected back into the scalp at varying depths in order to stimulate and support hair growth.

2Do PRP hair injections hurt?

The scalp is a very sensitive area, and injections can hurt a lot, especially if placed into the proper depth where the hair follicles are located. Fortunately, we offer a nerve block technique prior to injections in order to completely numb the area and make the whole process very comfortable for almost all patients. There may be some sensitivity hours later after the numbing wears off, but this is usually mild and well tolerated.

3Who is a good candidate for PRP hair loss treatments?

Generally speaking, if hair loss is fairly recent, within the past 4-5 years, PRP has better effect. PRP hair treatments seem to work better for women. Underlying medical conditions, such as iron deficiency anemia, thyroid disease, and other conditions which may be contributing to hair loss should be addressed prior to starting PRP hair treatments. PRP hair treatments should not be done in cases where platelet count or function may be abnormal. Certain medications may negatively affect platelet function, as well as alcohol and smoking. All of the above will be reviewed during a consultation with our doctor before deciding whether to go ahead with PRP hair treatments.

4How soon are results noticeable after PRP hair treatments?

It usually takes at least 3-4 months before results are noticeable, and sometimes it can take longer, from 6 months or even up to a year. Women tend to notice results faster; several of our female patients have reported improvement after only 2 months, but we still recommend a series of at least 3 treatments done at one month intervals to start.

5How often should PRP hair treatments be done?

Based on the studies done to date, it seems that the best schedule is at least 3-4 initial treatments, at one month intervals is best, followed by every 3-6 months for the first year, and then every 6-12 months for maintenance. Maintenance is required because although PRP supports hair growth, it cannot stop the aging process or correct the underlying cause of hair loss, which is likely genetic and hormonal. If hair loss is more advanced, then more frequent treatments are recommended.

6How much does PRP for hair loss cost?

It usually costs 800 for the initial treatment, and less for subsequent treatments and maintenance. If you are considering PRP hair treatments, it is more important to consider quality of the treatment over cost, as not all PRP hair treatments are the same.

Quality care that our clients can vouch for

I had a Vampire Facial done at PRP Skincare and Laser and I was extremely pleased with the excellent service and results. Dr. Yam is very knowledgeable and skilled. It's clear that he has great respect for his patients and is dedicated to providing the best. Before the procedure, I was asked about my specific concerns and given a clear overview of what to expect during and after the procedure. In my case, I had a grooved scar on the bridge of my nose from childhood and I wanted to lessen my laugh lines around my eyes. During the treatment, Dr. Yam was very attentive. He explained each step and frequently checked my level of comfort. I also noted that the problem areas I had mentioned were given specific attention, which I appreciated immensely. My recovery time was quick and painless. Within a few days the redness and swelling had subsided and the results of the treatment were quite remarkable. My husband commented on how radiant and and refreshed my face looked. I also noticed that these results continued to improve as the weeks passed. The scar on my nose is hardly noticeable now and the lines are not as deep around my eyes. I would highly recommend PRP Skincare and Laser to anyone looking to have any cosmetic work done. I know I look forward to my next treatment at this laser skin clinic.

Rachel N.
A Satisfied Client for Our Laser Clinic

After years of dealing with moderate incontinence I decided to try PRP since hearing about how it may help reduce urinary leakage. (for the record I have seen 2 pelvic floor physios after the birth of my third child, have used the jade egg and other pelvic floor exercises as well as laser therapy to rejuvenate my pelvic floor--all of which helped only a small amount). I received the PRP procedure from Dr. Yam 3 weeks ago. He and his assistant are highly professional, friendly, informative and caring . He made me aware of how the procedure works during the consultation, kept me informed while the procedure was being done and thoroughly went over the aftercare and what to expect as my body heals in the months post treatment. He has checked in with me now twice to see how I am doing and has been very supportive . So far I have seen good improvement and will hope to see more as my body rebuilds support in my pelvic floor. I may get another treatment from this laser skin clinic but will update my review then. Overall my experience with Dr. Yam has been great and I highly recommend him if you are looking for PRP.

I’m very impressed with the hospitality of Siara and Dr. Yam! They took me in at the beginning of August 2019 for acne.

I owe them many thanks for not only improving my acne, but also the confidence I have gained from having clearer skin.

I'm a first time Botox getter. The staff at this skin care centre were so friendly and knowledgeable. Not pushy at all. Prices are reasonable. I was nervous of the pain but honestly it felt like tiny mosquito bites. Will totally come back.

Aleah W.
A Satisfied Client at Our Skin Care Clinic

I came in today for an AFA clay peel. The skin care clinic itself is very clean. Siara showed me excellent hospitality and she was very informative of each step of the facial which was very comforting. I can’t wait to see my results!

Trixie C.
A Satisfied Client at Our Skin Care Centre

This has been the best dermatology experience I have had. Dr. Yam and his staff have gone above and beyond to achieve the results I want. His skills and bedside manners are phenomenal! I have gone to him for a wide variety of treatments and have seen considerable differences compared to any other skin care clinic I've visited in the past. Not only does he have the latest knowledge but also a great eye for the art of medicine. I will definitely be continuing to see him for ongoing treatments!

J S.
A Satisfied Client at Our Skin Care Centre

I’ve been flying in to see Dr. Yam and his assistant Siara for 8 months now. I’ve had a beyond positive experience. He has the lightest hand possible with needles. You won’t find more competitive prices for what is in my experience living in the United States, is that of the highest skill level. The laser clinic is not in a glamorous area (think Richmond strip mall)- but don’t let that throw you. The practice itself is very clean and he takes the utmost care in making sure the patient is comfortable. He also understands science and human anatomy. When it comes to needles, I don’t want anyone who is not a doctor injecting me. I’ve also seen his work on people I’ve referred who went for cosmetic procedures for hyaluronic acid products and they look incredibly natural. He’s not an Instagram doctor, so you won’t see any crazy before and after's online but I can say, the work I’ve seen doesn’t look like work at all and that’s a rare thing in the age of female muppets.

Chance W.

Aidir B.
A Satisfied Client at Our Laser Clinic

I was recommended to come to PRP Skincare & Laser by a close friend, and the service was absolutely phenomenal. Dr. Patrick Yam & Siara were super kind and informative about the procedures I was curious about (lip fillers & skin - PRP treatment) and I had no hesitation after the consultation where I did the filler immediately the day of. They took very good care of me and were extremely kind-hearted. Needless to say the results look incredible! I did my lips and right now it has only been about 1.5 hours after the procedure. The swelling is minimal and I can't stop looking at myself in the mirror!!! I am convinced to come back for a treatment at this skin care centrefor skin and I am so grateful & excited to have met Dr. Patrick Yam & his assistant Siara!

Ariel C.
