PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma – Non-Surgical Alternative for Hair Loss
Whether you are male or female suffering from hair loss, PRP, (Platelet Rich Plasma), therapy can repair damaged tissue and produce results. Platelet Rich Plasma works by enhancing and strengthening your own existing hair follicles. One reason for thinning hair is follicles with low hair density. By activating follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) the application of PRP causes weak hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth.
PRP is a high concentration of platelets surrounded in its own plasma. A small amount of blood is drawn and the red cells are isolated from the platelet-rich plasma. Since the autologous Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP), is processed from the patient’s own blood, there is virtually no risk of an allergic reaction or rejection. New hair growth can be seen as early as 2 months, but is typically evident between 5-8 months and will continue to improve up to a year after treatmen
If you are male or female suffering from hair loss, PRP therapy can repair damaged tissue and produce tangible results.
The micro-needling provides micro-level trauma, while the sudden appearance of a large number of platelet makes your body think a significant injury has happened. This kicks the repair mechanism into overdrive and your body will start trying to fix anything nearby. Part of this process is the release of certain growth factors that stimulate things such as collagen production, along with nearby hair follicles.
Your blood contains numerous platelets that signal the body’s repair mechanisms in the event of an injury. PRP begins when some blood is drawn and these platelets are spun out and isolated in a centrifuge, then combined into a concentrated solution. This solution is delivered via micro-needling into your scalp.
