Platelet Rich Plasma for Hair Restoration
PRP (PRP) therapy is an exciting new non-surgical therapeutic option for natural hair growth and stimulation. We offer PRP therapy as an innovative scientifically based natural non-surgical hair restoration therapy.
Platelet Rich Plasma is a process where a patient’s blood is drawn, separated and concentrated through a process called centrifugation, and re-injected into desired areas of the body. The PRP process concentrates useful cellular components of the blood and injects them into areas where the body can utilize the additional resources.
What is PRP?
PRP is blood plasma containing a concentration of platelets many times greater than occurs normally in blood. PRP is “autologous”, meaning that it comes from the patient’s own body, and has no potential for causing a foreign-body immunologic reaction.
How does it restore hair loss?
PRP promotes hair growth from follicles by the action of platelet growth factors on hair follicle stem cells. The platelet growth factors induce follicle stem cells to shift from a dormant state to an active state that starts the process of hair production.
Safety, complications, contraindications to use of PRP
The PRP/Stem cell treatment is completed in 1 hour with little to no downtime. It is completely safe and and does not have any side effects. After the treatment no special precaution is needed.
