PRP Hair Restoration
What it PRP Hair Restoration?
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is a cosmetic procedure that uses your own blood platelets to rejuvenate the skin and stimulate collagen production. This technique has been used in sports medicine for over 50 years to regenerate injured tissue. Most recently it has been found that the growth factors in PRP have an application in anti-aging medicine as well.
PRP Hair Restoration involves using the growth factors and proteins in your blood plasma to help thicken and regrow hair. Studies have shown that a series of PRP sessions can stop and even reverse the process of hair loss for both men and women.
Doctors typically use this treatment to address the shrinking of hair follicles and hair loss associated with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness). Many women have found this treatment helpful as well, improving hair density, fullness and ability to style their hair as desired.
How does PRP Hair Restoration work?
PRP therapy for hair loss is the same process as for cosmetic application. The first step is to draw your blood and process it in a centrifuge to separate the blood into different components — red blood cells, white blood cells, and platelet-rich plasma.
Next, your doctor will inject the PRP into the treatment areas of your scalp. Microneedling may be performed during the same session to stimulate the hair follicles.
