PRP for Hair Restoration
Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy for hair loss
Stimulate hair growth naturally using growth factors in your own blood cells
If you suffer from thinning hair or are experiencing hair loss, PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy can help! The studies are in—PRP for hair restoration works. Best for age-related and genetic hair loss, PRP is generating a buzz in the world of hair restoration.
Here’s how PRP works… Our blood is made of two main components: red blood cells and plasma. Made up of white blood cells and platelets, plasma is rich in growth factors which act as messengers, signaling skin cells to function. (In fact, they’ve been used in medicine to treat a range of health issues, including arthritis and signs of aging.) When injected across the scalp, they can help stimulate hair follicle activity to promote new hair growth.
What should you expect at the visit? It’s super quick and easy. A standard blood draw is done and the blood is processed in a centrifuge. Then the plasma is injected directly into the scalp. That’s it—takes only minutes.
