Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP stimulates hair follicles to regrow hair in bald patches and thinning areas, thickens new hair growth, and prevents hair loss. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves injections of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.
PRP for Hair Regrowth
- Increases blood supply to the follicle
- Triggers and maintains the growth phase
- Controls hair growth cycle
- Decreases hair loss
HOW IT WORKS
STEP 1: A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge.
STEP 2: After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe.
STEP 3: Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp in the areas that need improvement.
How does it work?
Palatelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead direct fields of medicine to utilize PRP for regrowing healthier, stronger tissue.
With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
Is this a cure for baldness?
PRP is not a cure for baldness (Androgenic Alopecia). The genetic medical problem will always remain. However, there is great evidence that regular treatments can significantly slow down the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and even work to increase hair density.
What is the treatment like?
This quick injection involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using a very easy 3-step process. Collecting the PRP usually only takes 10-15 minutes, and the PRP treatment itself is even faster, often taking as little as 3-5 minutes. The first round of treatments are scheduled once a month for three months, followed by regular maintenance treatments every three months.
What is the recovery time?
There is no long recovery process. You may take a warm shower the evening of the treatment. In addition, it is advised to avoid using any harsh dyes or chemicals on your hair for 48 hours.
