Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses your own blood to help you regrow hair. Within your blood is a rich source of plasma-rich platelets. When concentrated, those platelets have greatly magnified ability to heal, restore, and rejuvenate.
PRP is used in many ways in the medical field. It helps patients regrow damaged tissue after an injury and stimulates the body to heal faster. PRP, when placed in the scalp where hair is thinning, stimulates your body to start growing new high-quality hair within as little as three months.
First, your Advanced Dermatology care provider withdraws blood from your arm. This is similar to any blood draw for lab tests that you've done in the past.
Your provider places your blood inside a sterile, high-tech centrifuge machine. Your blood spins rapidly to separate the plasma-rich platelets from the other blood components. The platelet-rich plasma has 4-8 times as many platelets per cubic centimeter as normal blood plasma.
Your provider then further prepares your PRP for the treatment by adding a small quantity of calcium. The calcium releases growth factors from within your platelets to enhance your healing.
Your provider then injects the PRP into the area where you need it. When the PRP enters your scalp, it triggers minor inflammation that starts your body's healing response. Your blood platelets draw stem cells to the injection area, greatly enhancing your healing process. Soon, your inactive follicles begin growing hair again.
Both men and women are good candidates for PRP therapy for hair loss. If you have thinning hair, this may be a great natural and non-surgical solution for you. It's an in-office procedure at Advanced Dermatology, and there's no downtime needed.
PRP therapy even helps patients who've recently undergone hair transplant surgery. The PRP can help keep newly transplanted follicles viable while also stimulating regrowth from previously inactive follicles.
PRP therapy is a safe and effective treatment for nearly anyone with hair loss. There's no chance of allergic reaction or rejection because it uses your very own platelets.
