Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Loss Essentials

PRP Edmonton Clinic

PRP for hair restoration Eclipse Edmonton

What is PRP?

PRP is best thought of as a collection of growth factors. These growth factors are completely natural and there is no risk of infection or allergic reactions. This is because PRP injections are taken from your own blood. This is the main reason why the treatment is so attractive to so many people–it does not require any medication or surgery and we are simply concentrating and using the natural growth factors found in your own blood!

PRP is composed of two of your blood components: plasma and platelets. Plasma can be thought of the fluid that makes up your blood and platelets are tiny cells that contain hundreds of growth factors, including platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF).

How is the procedure done?

The first step is to collect the blood using a tiny needle. Once collected, the blood is then spun down in a centrifuge. This is then processed and after separating out all the red and white blood cells, the platelet rich plasma (PRP) is concentrated and isolated. This is the part that contains the growth factors that you need. The PRP is then put into tiny syringes that make it easier to inject into the recipient areas.

407 Graft FUE into scar | Dr. Thomas Nakatsui

December 12, 2018

  • Hair Transplant Restoration Surgery Follicular Unit Extraction FUE hair loss edmonton alberta canada

Number of Grafts: 407
Areas Treated: Right retroauricular region, right temple, and mid frontal region
Number of Procedures: 1
Type of Surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)
This friendly gentleman came to see Dr. Nakatsui regarding a bout of scarring alopecia that occurred over 20 years ago.  He had no complaints or issues with hair thinning, rather just 3 areas of scarring alopecia. The patient advised us that he had surgery elsewhere where the surgeon excised a portion of scar. This led to a linear scar line. When dealing with hair transplants into a scar region, we know that approximately 80% of the hairs will grow and survive whereas transplanted hairs into virgin scalp will have a success rate of approximately 96-98%. The patient was made aware of the decreased survival rate and still proceeded with the surgery.  Ultimately, the end result is very natural, thick, and blends in well with his surrounding hair.

Hairs come in different angles and directions all throughout the scalp. The angle the hair will be different in the front of the scalp compared to the back of the scalp. The in the retroauricular region (behind the ear), the angle of the hair is fairly flat and facing downward. If hairs were transplanted perpendicular to the natural angle of the hair, the end result will be very unnatural. For more of Dr. Nakatsui’s before and after results, please click here.

This gentleman came to our centre with recession to his hairline that extended back to his mid scalp. Dr. Nakatsui transplanted approximately 3,000 grafts for the final result. Close examination of the hairline demonstrates the absolute importance to angle and the use of follicular units (the very basic units of hair) when performing a hair transplant. The wonderful thing about hair transplant surgeries is that, once the transplant is complete, the hairs are generally permanent. They will act the same way as the hair from the back of your scalp; meaning they will grow at the same length and change colour at the same time generally. The best part about hair transplant surgery is that, it is your hair. To view more of Dr. Nakatsui’s before and after photos, please click here.

2,200 Graft FUE Hair Transplant Surgery | Dr. Thomas Nakatsui

November 13, 2018

  • before and after hair transplant top edmonton

Number of Grafts: 2,200
Areas treated: Vertex and temples
Number of procedures: 2
Type of surgery: Follicular Unit Excision (FUE)

This young man came to our clinic complaining of thinning to his vertex (crown) and his temples. After going through the options, he opted to have follicular unit excision surgery (FUE) because he did not want any noticeable scars on his scalp. Using the FUE method, Dr. Nakatsui transplanted 2,200 grafts into the vertex and temples.

At our centre, when a FUE surgery is performed, Dr. Nakatsui makes every tiny incision around every follicular unit graft. At many other clinics, technicians or sometimes robots perform this aspect of the procedure. Dr. Nakatsui prefers to perform this aspect of the procedure himself as the donor hair can change angle below the surface of the skin. If care is not taken and change in angle is not accounted for, the risk of transecting (cutting through) a graft increases, thereby rendering the graft unusable. Learn more about follicular unit excision (FUE) here. For more of Dr. Nakatsui’s results, please click here.

5,100 Graft Hair Transplant Surgery | Dr. Thomas Nakatsui

  • Hair Transplant Restoration Surgery Hair Loss Hair regrowth natural Follicular Unit Transplant Follicular Unit Extraction Edmonton Alberta Canada

Number of Grafts: 5,100
Areas Treated: Hairline, mid scalp, and vertex (crown)
Number of procedures: 2
Type of surgery: Strip (FUT)
This friendly patient experienced slow gradual thinning to throughout his scalp. The angles in which the grafts are transplanted is incredibly important for the end result. The frontal aspect of the scalp will have a different angle than the vertex. All of these angles and directions need to be followed in order to achieve a natural end result.
At the very front of the hair line, only singles are used. Immediately behind those singles, only double grafts will be used. This provides a natural appearance.  If grafts larger than 2 hairs are used at the very front of the hair line, it will be easily detected that was something done. Even in close up photos, the end result are undetectable. For more of Dr. Nakatsui’s before and after photos, please click here.
