PRP - Hair Restoration

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has been around for several decades and has been widely used in skin and wound healing.  PRP is your own blood plasma that is enriched with platelets, making it a natural and organic option, specific to you. Our blood is made of two main components, red blood cells, and plasma.  The plasma contains white blood cells and platelets, which are rich in growth factors. PPR contains several different and powerful growth factors that stimulate the healing of bone and soft tissue, as well as hair growth! Growth factors can help stimulate the activity of the hair follicles and promote new hair growth. When we inject PRP into the scalp it actually stimulates the stem cells in the hair root that turns 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 the plasma which is rich in platelets and contains the growth factors. The Platelet rich plasma is reinjected into the scalp to stimulate growth. Many evidence-based articles and research has shown that PRP is beneficial in increasing the hair count, hair thickness, and the growth phase of the hair cycle. The use of PRP is a great treatment option for hair thinning. When people lose hair, the follicles don’t just go away they just become dormant, and PRP can help stimulate them. Success is reported, in repeated treatments.
