When people lose hair, the follicles don’t go away, they just become dormant. When we inject PRP into the scalp, it actually stimulates the stem cells in the hair root that turn on the hair follicle again. In addition, PRP contains six growth factors, so it stimulates blood flow to the hair follicles, encouraging the hair to grow normally again. The procedure involves placing blood drawn from the client into a special machine that separates red blood cells from plasma, which is rich in platelets and contains growth factors. The Platelet Rich Plasma is then re-injected into the scalp to stimulate growth. Research has shown that platelet-rich plasma therapy can provide effective treatment for hair loss. Repeated treatments are required.
PRP therapy originated in Europe more than a 10 years ago and has been utilized in a variety of medical areas.
