PRP therapy for hair restoration thickens the hair and promotes growth. If you’re unfamiliar with PRP (platelet rich plasma), your blood is drawn (similar to a lab test). Your blood is spun at a high speed in a centrifuge which causes the platelets to separate from the other blood components. The PRP is then injected into the the point of care which in this case would be the scalp.
Platelets in our blood contain growth factors that increase collagen production, regenerate tissue, tighten skin, rejuvenate skin texture, and improve hair regrowth by entering the hair bulb circulation and stimulating the stem cells which promotes changes in the follicle.
We use a Zimmer cooler to blow cool air on the injection site during the treatment which helps soothe any discomfort.
For this long lasting treatment, we recommend 4 treatment sessions separated by 4-6 weeks then 1-2 treatments per year for maintenance.
