PRP Hair Restoration Treatment
PRP Hair Restoration
PRP for hair restoration involves the use of Platelet Rich Plasma to stimulate the body’s own hair growth. It is an outpatient procedure that requires no downtime whatsoever. Since it is a minimally-invasive procedure, there is no discomfort with it either.
- Minor or no risk for reaction
- Stimulation of hair follicle growth
- Reduction of miniaturization, or hair follicle shrinkage
- Provides positive results for both women and men
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities). The Platelet Rich Plasma is separated.
After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:
- platelet-poor plasma
- platelet-rich plasma
- red blood cells
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth. The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle's growth.
