Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP) therapy has proven to be very beneficial for men and women who are suffering from hair loss. PRP is a non-surgical option for patients who want to stimulate hair growth for aesthetic purposes, or if they have a condition that causes hair loss.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Human blood contains stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential growth factors that assist in the regeneration of tissue and healing. Evidence supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
Blood is drawn in the office, similar to a routine blood test. The blood is then spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated. It is then removed from the rest of the blood. An anesthesia block may be administered to the scalp, allowing for reduced discomfort. The concentrated PRP is injected into the scalp. There is no sedation involved with this procedure, so the patient is then free to drive home without assistance.
IS PRP FOR ME?
There are some factors which make PRP hair restoration inadvisable. Patients with a history of heavy smoking, drug use, and alcohol use are not recommended to receive PRP hair restoration.
