Platelet-Rich Plasma for Hair Restoration

Your body might not always do what you want it to, but it can be a crucial tool in healing itself as well. Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment that uses components of one’s own blood to stimulate your hair follicles in cases of thinning hair, including cases of androgenic alopecia, aka, male pattern baldness.

Platelets are small cells in your blood that aid in the clotting process. When PRP is injected into the damaged area it causes a mild inflammation that triggers a healing cascade. As the platelets organize in the tissue they release a number of enzymes to promote healing and restoration of tissue, making them an effective tool to promote hair growth.

How it works

A small quantity of blood is drawn. The blood is then spun in a special centrifuge to separate its components (Red Blood Cells, Platelet Rich Plasma, and Plasma) It is then spun again to achieve optimal concentration.

The platelet rich plasma is separated from the rest of the blood and then activated with a small amount of calcium to allow the release of growth factors from the platelets which in turn amplifies the healing process. The patient is then given local anesthesia, and the PRP is then injected directly into affected areas of the scalp.

Who is it Best For?

Platelet Rich Plasma is an awesome long-term alternative for both men and women who want a natural looking and feeling treatment for hair loss. The treatment is approved for those with thinning hair as well as those who have already lost a significant amount of hair due to various forms of alopecia.

 

Complications & Possible Side Effects

PRP is autologous, meaning it contains substances that comes directly from one’s own body, thus making it less likely that an allergic reaction will occur. That said, there are a few small risks involved. Risks such as infection, nerve injuries and pain at the injection site are all possible but also mitigated by the high level of training our staff has received.
