Here at Hair Transplant Malaysia, The SMART™ PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss is a treatment involving taking a small quantity of blood from a patient, separating out the growth factors and bioactive proteins in the blood (which initiate and speed up tissue repair and regeneration) and injecting this platelet rich plasma into the scalp, to encourage hair growth. Also known as autologous platelet rich plasma this treatment is not yet widely available. While there have not been sufficient validated clinical studies proving the treatment, there is enough evidence indicating that some patients can benefit from PRP for hair loss. SMART is an invention by our founding CEO which is legally patented.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss is a treatment utilising a biological product prepared from the patient’s own blood. The platelet rich plasma contains growth factors (such as TGF-beta, PDGF-AB, bFGF, IGF, VEGF and EGF) and bioactive proteins (globulin, albumin, fibrinogen), nutrients, vitamins, hormones and electrolytes which speed up tissue repair and regeneration. Through separating the plasma, the cellular components of the blood including the red blood cells and leucocytes are removed and it is these components that inhibit the repair and regeneration process. The treatment increases hair density and reduces hair loss to normal levels. Improvements are seen within 90 days, with hair growth continuing to improve in some patients over 6 months. PRP can be combined with other hair loss treatments including topical or oral minoxidil, oral finasteride, hair transplants, and supplementation with Viviscal Professional.
Results have been seen in patients with androgenetic alopecia and with alopecia areata and is suitable for men and women.
A small quantity of the patients own blood is collected and then treated in a centrifuge to separate the platelet-rich-plasma from the red blood cells. We use the Regen system which utilises a unique separator gel which keeps the red cells separated. The plasma is then injected in a grid pattern into the scalp. Treatment takes around one hour.
A course of treatment involves 6 to 8 sessions of PRP, one session per month for the next 6 to 8 month without a break in the chain. On-going maintenance treatment every 3 months is recommended.
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) for hair loss is a safe treatment with no risk of infectious disease transmission as it is prepared in closed circuit from the patient’s own blood (autologous product). As PRP is prepared from patient’s own blood, adverse reactions are rare. Patients may experience slight redness and swelling.
