PRP for Hair Growth Q & A

What is platelet-rich plasma?

Platelet-rich plasma, or PRP, is a solution created from a small sample of your own blood. The formulation harnesses the power of your innate healing ability and puts it to use to help you move closer to your aesthetic goals. 

Your blood is made of a mixture of liquids and solids. Platelets are among the solid components, and work to enable blood clotting. Your platelets also contain a special type of protein called growth factors, which serve to trigger cellular growth.

PRP injections are created by drawing a small sample of your blood and spinning it in a centrifuge until the solids are separated from the liquid plasma. The platelets are reintroduced to the plasma and the solution is drawn into a syringe. 

How does PRP help with hair restoration?

Many different factors contribute to thinning hair, which is common among men and women in middle age and beyond. For those who are looking for thicker, fuller hair, PRP therapy can deliver impressive results. 

The process involves a series of shallow PRP injections in the areas of your scalp where thinning is most pronounced. Once introduced into your tissues, PRP stimulates the release of growth factors which increase circulation around hair follicles and trigger the creation of new hair cells, leading to thicker and fuller hair.

It may take a series of treatments before you’ll see the full effects of PRP hair restoration. The treated follicles need time to go through the normal growth phases, after which you should see a marked improvement in the thickness and fullness of your hair.

Benefits of PRP for hair loss

PRP hair restoration stops hair loss and achieves healthier, lustrous hair with PRP injections to replenish a thinning hairline.

During youth, your skin has an abundance of collagen and elastin, two proteins responsible for the integrity and function of the skin. As you age, the content of collagen and elastic degrades, leading to sagging, volume loss, and formation of wrinkles and fine lines.

It’s a great option for men and women looking for anti-aging treatment who aren’t ready for surgical intervention or dermal fillers.
