A-PRP (Autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma) treatment and ATS (Autologous Thrombin Serum) together permit the injection of a powerful matrix gel at targeted treatment areas. Whether treating wrinkles, folds, scars or poor skin texture, platelets slowly release growth factors over a period of time that will support the skin at its foundation.
Important to understand is that A-PRP facial therapy for Toronto patients is not administered to fill the wrinkles but to stimulate the fibroblasts which will produce NEW collagens, and all the components of the extracellular matrix (elastin, fibronectin, GAGs, HA, glycoproteins, vitronectin etc…) These combined result in tissue regeneration and stronger, smoother skin.

Hair Regrowth and Restoration
The best A-PRP® facial treatment is a natural therapy that exploits the regenerative potential contained in our platelets, in order to induce tissue repair and new tissue generation.
What will my PRP treatment look like?
Performing A-PRP requires just a small amount (only a few ml) of blood. The sample is centrifuged to concentrate the patient’s platelets in a little amount of plasma. This is then injected through a thin needle in the skin or the scalp – is virtually painless and with no downtime..
How does PRP help with hair loss & hair growth?
PRP hair treatment is a natural therapy that exploits the potential contained in our platelet, including that of the hair bulb environment… increasing blood supply and enhancing hair follicle cell proliferation, resulting in stronger, nicer hairs.
In stimulating the hair bulb environment, A-PRP hair restoration provokes a natural process that results in strengthened hairs. Its natural and “autologous*” quality excludes side effects.
When it has a high concentration of platelets, PRP produces various growth factors including growth factor-beta and vascular endothelial growth factor that make it valuable as a hair loss treatment. Men and women can benefit from a PRP shot. It is an excellent alternative to hair transplantation or hair implants in Toronto.
Male Pattern Baldness
Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) causes the miniaturization of hair follicles and is believed to contribute to male pattern baldness. About 50% of men are affected by this condition. Fortunately, this can be treated. A study in India found that men had approximately 30% more growth in thinning areas after 4 PRP treatments for hair loss and hair thinning.
Female Pattern Hair Loss
Men are not the only ones that experience hair loss. Female pattern hair loss is comparable to male pattern baldness, with the exception that hair loss occurs in a distinct pattern. This condition is typically hereditary, though other factors include age and hormones. The good news is that the injection of platelet-rich plasma results in hair growth.
Alopecia areata (AA) is an autoimmune condition that targets hair follicles. While more studies need to be conducted to fully cement the role of PRP as a treatment for alopecia areata, some studies have found that the treatment results in a significant increase in hair regrowth and a decrease in hair dystrophy.
