What is PRP for Hair Loss?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a simple injection of your own PRP into your scalp to help regrow hair. PRP is a concentrated portion of your own blood that is rich in healing growth factors.
What is the procedure like?
Here is a quick and simple breakdown of the PRP procedure
– With Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment, your blood is drawn as if you were taking a blood test.
– We then take that blood to be spun in a centrifuge.
– Blood platelets contain growth and healing factors. When concentrated through simple centrifuging, your blood plasma becomes rich in healing factors, thus the name Platelet Rich Plasma.
– We then carefully inject PRP into targeted hair follicles in your scalp.
When injected into the scalp, PRP can reawaken dormant hair follicles and trigger new hair growth for long-lasting improvements to your hairline.
When PRP is injected, it releases its activating factors over a time period of about 6-8 hours.
