Can PRP be combined with a hair transplant for better results?

Hair Loss Aesthetic Medicine Skin, Hair & Nails

I have read that PRP is done together with hair transplantation in Korea. Is it advisable to combine both treatments, and does it result in better results? Is hair transplantation with PRP also performed in Singapore?

DOCTOR’S ANSWER (1)

Good question. I receive this question a lot from my patients too. 

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is not allowed for Aesthetic treatments in Singapore

Unfortunately, Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is not allowed for Aesthetic treatments in Singapore.   Hence, PRP is not allowed to be combined with hair transplant in Singapore. PRP treatment is only allowed for acute muscle and tendon injuries in Singapore. 

PRP: Promising Results that need long-term validation

There are promising results internationally for the use of PRP before and after hair transplant to improve the results of hair transplant. However, there is a lack of standardisation of PRP protocols so the results can be very varied. This being said, there are many hair loss specialists who still swear by the results of PRP.

Regenera Activa: HSA, FDA approved regenerative medical hair loss treatment in Singapore

Apart from PRP, the next frontier in hair loss treatments (apart from medications and FUE hair transplant surgery) is Regenera Activa. Regenera Activa is a minimally invasive treatment that is approved by major health regulatory authorities internationally (US FDA, CE Europe, Singapore HSA). 

Micro-grafts are extracted from the back of your scalp and is injected into the areas where there is hair loss. These micro-grafts, which contain regenerative cells, repair your scalp and stimulate hair growth by strengthening your follicles. 

This is a single treatment with visible results that last 1 year (even up to 3 years for some).

Regenera Activa hair growth

You might want to consider Regenerative Activa before and after hair transplant instead.

Hope that this helps!
