1. What is PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that accelerates healing in different body parts. Similar to red and white blood cells, platelets are a blood component. They help your body stop bleeding by forming clots, so whenever you sustain an injury, these platelets rush to the injured area to promote healing. PRP contains growth factors and proteins, so at our dermatology clinic in Beirut, Lebanon, Dr. Yassine uses this treatment to allow stimulating the activity of hair follicles and restoring hair growth.
2. How is PRP performed at Skin Expert Clinic?
At Skin Expert Clinic in Beirut, Lebanon, blood is drawn from a vein in your arm with a needle attached to our special Regen Lab FDA approved tube. Blood components are then separated using a centrifuge to allow the extraction of platelets. Once extracted, PRP is injected into the scalp
Dr. Yassine will also provide you with his special cocktail of vitamins and growth factors, which will be added to the PRP. Hence, you will have a double session treatment, and the results will be even more satisfying
3. Is the combination of micro-needling with PRP effective?
Micro-needling is a technique that uses extremely tiny needles to puncture the skin. It helps stimulate collagen production, a protein that improves skin health. The combination of micro-needling with PRP boosts your results and promises you the most pleasing appearance ever.
4. Is PRP right for me?
Whether your hair loss is hereditary (androgenetic alopecia) or stress-related (telogen effluvium), you can resort to PRP treatment, as it effectively inhibits hair loss and delays hair transplantation.
5. Is PRP safe?

You need about six sessions to be performed for over six months. A maintenance session is also recommended every six months.
