PRP-(Platelet-Rich Plasma)

What is PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma)?

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), also known as platelet mesotherapy, boosts hair growth, cell regeneration and the formation of new blood vessels by using plasma and platelets present in the blood. As a result, the stem cells in the hair follicles of the scalp are stimulated by injecting platelet growth factors.

What does a PRP session involve?

The procedure is simple and quite quick. First of all, after an initial consultation with a GRL MD physician, a standard blood sample is taken. This sample is then centrifuged to separate the plasma and platelets from other blood components.

The PRP is then injected into the scalp at several points. At this stage, an anesthetic cream may also be applied to the scalp to maximize patient comfort. You can resume your activities immediately afterwards.

You may notice some redness and slight bruising after the procedure, which will disappear very quickly. You should also refrain from dyeing your hair or using products that are aggressive for the hair and scalp in the days following the session.

PRP Injection filling

Platelet-rich plasma injections are particularly suitable for people with:

  • mild to moderate alopecia,
  • thinning hair or partial baldness,
  • women who have experienced hair loss following pregnancy.

For a very noticeable lack of hair, stimulation is more complicated and sometimes impossible. Indeed, PRP stimulation can only be performed if there is an existing bulb.


Generally, 5 sessions spaced one month apart are required to achieve optimal and long-lasting results. An annual maintenance session is recommended to preserve the effects of PRP.
