Hair loss can be an embarassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless.
Now there is an affordable way to improve your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. Platelet-Rich Plasma also known as PRP for hair restoration involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healther, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
PRP for hair loss is a quick injection that involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using a very easy three step process:
1. Your blood will be drawn and placed into a centrifuge. Using this centrifuge, one of our providers will isolate platelets from that blood (platelet-rich plasma, or PRP). The platelets are then “activated” to release multiple growth factors that are normally used to heal injured tissue. These growth factors work to stimulate collagen and new blood flow.
2. After 10 minutes the platelets are concentrated and drawn into a syringe.
3. Using a small needle the platelets are then injected strategiclly into your scalp in the areas that need improvement. This simple step takes about 3-5 minutes.
