PRP Therapy at Revivo Hair
PRP, Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy, is a medically proven remedy for hair loss. Suitable for both men and women, PRP is an ideal non surgical treatment for people suffering from alopecia, hair thinning, male pattern baldness, female pattern baldness, alopecia areata and other types of hair loss. PRP therapy is a revolutionary repair system that stimulates hair growth in the thinning or bald areas. Revivo Hair offers high quality PRP to fix your hair loss.
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma treatment. Plasma is a component of blood which is full of healing and growth factors. When applied to areas of hair loss, it helps strengthen follicles and increase the quality and thickness of the existing hair. Further, it can regrow hair. The platelets and growth factors are collected from the patient’s own blood and then injected into the scalp. The growth platelets and growth factors stimulate the hair follicle to slow down hair loss and regrow hair. Initially we recommend a course of 4 monthly sessions and then 1-4 treatments per year for maintenance. Results are usually visible after 3 months
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a form of blood treatment that uses your own platelets to help heal damaged tissue. It’s been used for years in sports medicine and orthopedics, but it became popular as an alternative treatment for hair loss after a study published in the Journal of Clinical Aesthetic & Restorative Medicine found that it improved hair growth in some people with alopecia areata. In this article, we discuss what PRP is and how it can help with hair loss.
How does PRP work for hair loss?
PRP is a treatment that uses platelets extracted from your own blood to promote healing. Platelets are small particles that form clots when you cut yourself, and they contain growth factors that help with the healing process. PRP is also known as autologous conditioned plasma (ACP) because it’s made by spinning platelet-rich plasma in a centrifuge, separating out the platelets and returning them to your body via injection into areas where they’re needed most–in this case, your scalp.
In addition to being able to use this procedure on patients who aren’t candidates for traditional hair transplant surgery due to scarring or other issues related to previous surgeries, ACP/PRP can be used as an adjunct treatment alongside other procedures such as FUE (“follicular unit extraction”). This means you can get PRP injections at any time during or after other types of hair restoration treatments–the only limitation is how many times per year you want them done!
It’s basically a way to extract your own blood, spin it in a centrifuge, and return only the platelets.

How much does PRP for hair loss cost?
The cost of PRP for hair loss varies depending on the clinic and how much you pay in advance. When you pay for PRP in advance, you’ll usually get a discount. Prices range from PKR 6000-15000, depending on the amount and number of treatments.
Who is eligible for PRP?
As we use your very own blood in PRP therapy, it is a safe and natural procedure and most patients can have the procedure. During a consultation the PRP consultant will assess if you are a suitable candidate for PRP treatment and we’ll answer any questions you may have regarding the procedure. If required or you want to we can set up an appointment with one of the surgeons to discuss further in detail.
What is the process of PRP therapy?
A small volume of blood is drawn and treated in a specialised machine. During this the plasma containing the platelets and other growth factors will separate from the red blood cells. The bald or thinning area is anaesthetised and the PRP is injected into the skin to activate the hair follicle.
Medical hair restoration
PRP is part of our comprehensive medical hair restoration protocol where hair loss is controlled and regrowth generated through various means.
PRP therapy for men
The Platelet Rich Plasma therapy is suitable for men that can stimulate hair follicles to grow. It is an ideal therapy for men who are experiencing male pattern baldness. The procedure is also used to treat androgenic alopecia, alopecia areata and other types of hair loss.
PRP therapy for women
PRP is rich in growth factor that contributes to hair growth when applied to the scalp. The treatment is suitable for women who are experiencing hair thinning and female pattern baldness. The procedure is safe and is long used by orthopaedists to promote healing and growth of tendons.
Does it hurt? How long does the treatment take?
The procedure is a comfortable procedure and takes about an hour to complete. You should have minimum 1 weeks gap between treatments.
PRP may be an option for your hair loss treatment.
PRP may be an option for your hair loss treatment. While it’s not a cure, PRP can help heal damaged follicles and promote new growth. It’s also less expensive than other treatments, like medication or surgery.
However, PRP isn’t a quick fix–it takes time for your body to create new hair follicles and grow new strands of hair from them! You’ll need about six months before you see results from this procedure, but if you’re willing to wait it out then PRP is worth looking into as part of your overall strategy against thinning locks or bald spots on top of your head (or anywhere else).
The platelets contain growth factors that help with healing
Platelets are a component of blood that contain growth factors. Growth factors are proteins that help cells grow and multiply, and platelets contain them in large amounts. These platelets can be extracted from your own blood, then concentrated so that you get more concentrated growth factor content than if you were to just take a regular injection of platelets.
The growth factors in PRP have been shown to help with wound healing, including hair follicles’ ability to grow after injury (such as laser treatments).
Some people use it for joint pain, tendonitis and other injuries.
We also offer PRP to treat joint pain, tendonitis, and other injuries. At Revivo we also use PRP for sexual rejuvenation for men and women and patient feedback is very positive.
It is not a cure for hair loss, but can help heal damaged follicles
PRP is not a cure for hair loss, but it can help heal damaged follicles. The use of PRP for treating alopecia areata and telogen effluvium has been documented in the literature. In addition to this, there are also studies that show PRP can help with hair loss due to chemotherapy.
While PRP is not a cure for hair loss, it may be an option for your hair loss treatment. The platelets contain growth factors that help with healing and growth of new follicles. This can help prevent further damage to existing hair as well as stimulate new growth.
