PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This type of therapy is used in a number of procedures, including hair restoration, due to its amazing healing and growth capabilities. PRP treatment uses your own blood components to stimulate hair renewal and growth. You are warmly invited to learn more about the treatment, how it works and whether or not it may be right for your wants and needs.
About PRP for Hair Restoration
PRP uses the growth factors and healing products in patients’ own blood to promote healing and stimulate growth. This technology has been used in a number of medical areas, including wound treatment and pain reduction. PRP therapy is now seeing increased success in the promotion of hair growth. It’s a non-surgical hair restoration treatment that is appropriate for a large number of patients. Because it uses your own blood, there’s no risk of allergy or a negative reaction.
How It Works
In order to perform the procedure, you will undergo a simple blood draw. That blood will then be processed in a centrifuge, separating the PRP for use. Next, the PRP is prepared to be used on the scalp. Our professional will then use the PRP in the treatment area of your scalp. You’ll be able to leave the office immediately following your procedure.
PRP can be used alone or in conjunction with other treatments. It works by stimulating hair follicles that have recently been implanted or that are simply inactive. This stimulation causes the follicles to enter an active growth phase. Your protocol will vary based on your individual needs. Some patients receive PRP treatments before or after hair transplant procedures, while others may opt for PRP therapy without hair restoration surgery.
Things to Consider
Most patients are well-suited for this hair restoration treatment. However, there are some reasons we may advise an alternative procedure. Those who smoke regularly or use drugs and alcohol heavily may not be ideal candidates for PRP. Certain medical conditions are problematic with regard to this type of treatment as well. Talk to our provider about your medical history to ensure PRP therapy is safe for you.
