PRP is a cutting-edge procedure that harnesses the healing power of platelets and growth factors from your blood to stimulate a stem cell response. These stem cells help you grow new collagen and blood vessels, repair and regenerate damaged skin, and help slow and reverse the signs of aging. First, blood is drawn from the patient. Then the platelets are separated from other blood cells and their concentration is increased during a process called centrifugation. Finally, PRP is placed back into the skin by injection or micro-needling.
For PRP hair loss therapy the platelets are also derived from your own blood. The concentration of platelets and combination of injection site, provides a lot of good growth factors that stimulate hair growth when injected into the scalp. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or weak hair follicles into an active growth phase. Applicable for both men and women.
