PRP Hair Regeneration
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) injections stimulate hair growth for both men and women to help restore fullness, using the body’s regenerative capabilities.
PRP is created from a small sample of your blood that’s separated in a centrifuge into individual components. The plasma is concentrated with platelets to create PRP, which is rich in natural growth factors from your own body. When applied to the scalp this creates the optimum environment for hair growth by stimulating healthy blood vessel growth which in turn increases the oxygen supply to the hair follicles critical for healthy hair growth. This procedure is performed by hand with a needle rather than by a roller so ensures all the plasma is delivered directly to the hair follicles affected.
PRP is the optimum way to promote maximum hair growth naturally for a healthy head of hair. The procedure is most effective with between three to six sessions–with the initial three sessions at two to four weekly intervals, and the remaining treatments two to six months afterwards.
Men and women who are experiencing premature hair loss, who are otherwise healthy, are excellent candidates for PRP. Multiple treatments may be necessary based on your medical history, aesthetic goals, and personal circumstances.
It is a desirable option for those who either don’t want medical treatment or are looking for an adjunct to medical or surgical hair transplant.
Book a consultation with Dr Holman and the MH Clinics team to discuss all hair regeneration procedures from initial consultation to medical management and PRP. In more complex cases where hair has already been lost, complete hair transplant surgery remains the definitive treatment option also offered by Dr Holmans as this is one of his particular special interest areas.

Frequently Asked Questions
Also known as platelet-rich plasma, PRP is utilized by several fields of medicine and is a treatment that can help regenerate cells and tissues by using your body’s natural resources. It is created from a small sample of the patient’s own blood that is spun through a centrifuge and separated into its individual components. The plasma, or liquid portion of the blood, is infused with more platelets than usual to create PRP.
Platelets, which generally aid in clotting the blood, also contain growth factors that can help in the healing and regenerative processes of the body. Doctor Holman also utilizes this substance for PRP facials, and this treatment can potentially be performed in conjunction with hair transplant surgery performed by our medical team for patients who qualify.
During this treatment, PRP is applied to areas of thinning or sparse hair, where it is absorbed into the scalp. Although there are no guarantees, PRP can potentially help the patient by promoting growth in newly transplanted or inactive hair follicles using the body’s natural regenerative properties.
Men and women who are experiencing premature hair loss, who are healthy and have no contraindicating medical conditions, and who are interested in hair regeneration treatment that utilizes the body’s natural healing response may be good candidates for this procedure. Your treatment options will be discussed with you during your consultation.
