Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Restoration
What is Platelet Rich Plasma?
Platelet Rich Plasma or PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for both men and women who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. PRP contains essential and specific growth factors that assist in hair regeneration.
What is the process for PRP?
Blood is drawn and specially prepared using the Eclipse centrifuge technology. The Eclipse method is the medical industry’s gold standard for harvesting the most viable and abundant protein-rich cells.
PRP Hair Restoration therapy works by separating the protein-rich cells in your blood and then injecting into the areas of hair loss or hair thinning.
Is PRP painful?
Topical anesthesia is applied to the treatment area, so the entire procedure will be comfortable. Then, a microneedle or laser treatment is performed to create small channels to stimulate the dermis in the treatment area(s) of the scalp. The highly concentrated PRP is then injected into the treatment site and applied topically for maximum results.
How does PRP work?
The enriched cells contain cytokines and powerful growth factors that have been proven to stimulate natural hair growth and follicle function. The number of treatments is directly related to the cause of hair loss and the significance of hair loss. The most common area for treatment is the scalp, but other areas of the body are candidates for treatments.
Who is a candidate for PRP?
Both men and women are candidates for PRP Hair Restoration and those with patches of weak-quality of hair growth or patches of alopecia areata. Results vary, but in general, you will begin to see new hair growth within three to six months. PRP is not a cure for hair loss. It will slow hair loss and stimulate dormant follicles. It is recommended to continue PRP treatments and medical microneedle treatments to maintain results of hair regrowth and thicker, fuller hair.
