PRP TREATMENTS

What is Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)?

PRP is a proven therapy that uses the patient’s blood platelets to act below the skin with the body’s natural ability to grow hair. The platelets contain proteins and growth factors that increase circulation to the hair follicles and stimulate their growth.

Platelet Rich Plasma, often termed as PRP, is concentrated blood plasma that contains five to 10 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. PRP contains white and red blood cells and it contains cells known as platelets. Platelets play a significant role in the human body. They are the reason your body has the ability to heal itself at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body and also assist in clotting the blood, which is essential for the body to heal wounds.

PRP Hair Restoration:

The idea behind PRP therapy is that by increasing the platelet count in a wounded area, the body’s healing capacity in that area would be accelerated thus also accelerating the growth and characteristics of hair follicles such as thickening and creating density. If the hair follicle and its root are healthy then the growth will be healthy as well. Hair follicles survive through the nutrients they receive from their supply of blood so by introducing platelets to the blood via the administration of PRP, it amplifies the body’s scalps ability to produce healthier follicles. PRP thickens hair follicles thus improving hair density, reverses hair thinning, accelerates healing when used during hair restoration surgery, may be a positive alternative for non-surgical hair restoration treatment.
