PRP Hair Loss Therapy
Please note: Arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment to fill out paperwork.
At The Coliseum MediSpa, Dr. Waller performs PRP therapy as a proactive therapeutic option for male and female patients experiencing hair loss.
PRP is a natural, non-surgical, regenerative option for hair loss and hair thinning, with minimal risk of adverse side effects. PRP therapy is being recognized as one of the most effective non-surgical treatments for thinning hair, offering a promising alternative for natural hair growth and improvement in hair caliber and thickness for patients with miniaturization and hair thinning. Dr. Waller was one of the first naturopaths to focus on hair thinning and incorporate PRP as a treatment for hair loss in Vancouver.
Results are not immediate and may take weeks to months to notice hair thickening. 2-4 Treatments, 6-8 weeks apart are generally required. An annual follow up treatment is recommended.
Patients report a high degree of tolerability, but for those patients that are sensitive or apprehensive, a local anesthetic can be used to reduce the sensation.
Thyroid function, hormones, iron levels, stress, lifestyle, acute & chronic illness are among the variables that affect hair growth and contribute to alopecia. Dr. Waller requires a consultation prior to treatment to assess your candidacy and create a treatment plan tailored to your needs.
Dr. Waller will discuss your concerns, make recommendations and provide realistic expectations. Book your consult today!
