PRP Therapy for Hair Loss
Hair loss quite common, in men and women. PRP Therapy is a great option for those looking to restore their confidence and regain a full head of hair.
What is PRP?
PRP is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets.
Due to its richness in growth factors, applying PRP to the scalp can contribute to hair growth. PRP helps scalp tissue to regenerate by restoring growth factors. That regeneration causes hair follicles to be stimulated.
Where is PRP obtained?
The platelets are made from a patient’s own blood. Blood is drawn, then placed in a special tube, along with a gel that separates the most growth factors. This tube goes to a centrifuge for spinning, where the PRP is separated from the rest of the blood. PRP is now ready for the application process. The process is simple, convenient and non-surgical.
How is the PRP procedure performed?
Topical anesthesia is applied to the scalp. PRP is then injected into the scalp where the hair is thinning, causing the hair follicles to be stimulated. That stimulation causes inactive follicles to shift to an active state, starting the process of hair growth.
Who are good candidates for PRP hair restoration?
PRP is most effective in patients whose hair is starting to thin. Patients with active scalp infections, who have diabetes and those on blood thinners are not good candidates for PRP.
