What is PRP?
Plasma is a part of your blood that contains platelets which help your blood to clot. Platelets also contain proteins that promote cell growth. When you isolate plasma from your blood and concentrate it, you have PRP. Injecting PRP into damaged tissues can stimulate your body to grow healthy new cells and stimulate healing naturally.
How PRP for Hair Loss Works
With PRP for hair loss, most patients can grow thicker, fuller hair without having to undergo surgery or put up with major downtime. The treatment involves a blood draw from your arm into a special tube designed for this process. The blood is placed into a centrifuge so red blood cells are separated from plasma and then further concentrated to contain high quantities of platelets.
PRP is injected directly into the thinning area of the scalp. The PRP platelet proteins stimulate hair growth from follicles that have become smaller or dormant, causing both more hairs to grow, and existing hairs to become thicker and healthier.
