PRP Therapy is a low risk, highly effective treatment for hair loss that is sweeping the hair replacement community. PRP is effective for both men and women at correcting established hair loss; or as a preventative treatment combating the very first signs of hair loss.
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. This plasma is the part of your blood that controls clotting and healing and stimulates the growth of new skin.
PRP Therapy has been used in the medical community for years as a way to decrease healing time for wounds. In fact, PRP therapy has had a strong presence in orthopedic medicine, dentistry, and reconstructive surgery fields for two decades.
Doctors in the hair replacement community have recently begun to explore the benefits of PRP on hair follicle stimulation and hair regrowth, and the results are remarkable.
How does PRP work?
A small amount of your blood is drawn and spun in a centrifuge. This separates out the PRP, the clear layer of your blood containing multiple growth factors that can be used to stimulate hair growth. Once the PRP is extracted, a local block is used to numb the nerves in your scalp or eyebrow area. Next, the PRP will be injected into the scalp.
The growth factors in the platelets will stimulate the hair follicle to begin growing, making your own natural hair grow back thicker and fuller.
PRP is a non-surgical treatment option that allows you to take control of your own natural hair growth.
Because the plasma is part of your own blood, the risk of allergic reaction found in other treatments and medications is eliminated. Beyond that, the concentrated white blood cells and healing properties of the plasma keep your infection risk to a minimum. PRP can even be used in conjunction with other therapies to boost its success. For best results, repeat the PRP treatment every three to four months.
PRP is a natural way to stimulate your own hair growth with cells from your own body. It is the ultimate way to manage and reverse your hair loss and get your confidence back.
Because the PRP is based on your individual cells, it’s a highly effective treatment for men and women, and can be used with other treatments for even more impressive results.
