What is PRP and how does it work?
-Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a small volume of plasma containing a high concentration of platelets. This concentration contains growth factors that can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue to regenerate. The PRP is created from the patient’s own blood sample.
What are the benefits of PRP?
-PRP for hair restoration is ideal for men and women who are experiencing hair loss. Your own growth factors help trigger natural hair growth and prevent further hair loss without the need for costly surgeries.
-It is a quick and easy procedure with very few risks or adverse reactions.
How is the procedure performed?
-A treatment session of PRP begins with drawing a sample of the patient’s blood through venipuncture. This sample is then spun down in a centrifuge, which separates the PRP from other blood components. The PRP is then injected directly into specific areas of the scalp.
-The procedure typically takes only 20 minutes with little to no downtime. Most patients require treatments every 6 weeks for a total of three sessions. Additional treatments may occur every 3-6 months thereafter as indicated.
