PRP Hair Treatment
Hair Restoration with PRP
Platelet Rich Plasma is quite amazing when it comes to medical applications, and has been used to treat everything from arthritis to collagen loss, in addition to hair restoration. The major components of PRP are stem cells, growth factors, and platelets. What makes these components so fascinating is that they can stimulate different biological functions depending on what part of the body they are applied to.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy stimulates hair growth through vascularization and angiogenesis, and encourages hair follicles to extend the duration of the anagen phase of the growth cycle. PRP therapy for hair loss is shown to increase blood supply to the hair follicle, triggering natural hair growth.
PRP Treatment Benefits
How PRP Works
Platelets contain many healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.
Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth. With PRP for hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth stage.
PRP Treatment for Hair Loss
Hair Regrowth Process
PRP for hair regrowth begins with a standard blood draw from the patient’s arm. The tube of blood is put into a centrifuge to separate the red blood cells from the plasma. Then the plasma, rich in platelets, is removed from the tube and injected directly into a patient’s scalp at the hair follicles. Injections are typically spread across a half-inch area of thinning hair to ensure dense coverage.
Treatments are typically performed monthly for the first three to four months, and then every three to six months thereafter. This schedule is optimal for stimulating hair growth factors and stem cells associated with reducing hair fallout. PRP has proven to combat hair loss in more than 85% of cases.
