How Does it Work?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma, which is a highly concentrated group of human blood cells that can promote healing and new cellular growth. PRP contains stem cells and growth factors that can stimulate cell growth, tissue repair, collagen growth, and healthy cell production, resulting in longer, fuller, and thicker hair regrowth when injected into the hair follicles.
We will draw a small amount of your blood in our office, similar to what you could expect when having blood drawn for lab tests. The blood is then rapidly spun in a centrifuge to separate the PRP from the rest of your blood.
Anesthesia is used to minimize discomfort during treatment. Then, the PRP is injected directly into your scalp with a microneedling device to stimulate renewed blood supply and proper nutrients to your deprived hair follicles. The microneedling pen allows for deeper penetration of PRP, amplifying the benefits of your hair restoration procedure.
Depending on the area treated, treatment can take 60 to 90 minutes. Several treatments may be needed for the best possible results, and treatments should be spaced 3 to 6 months apart. Since PRP is derived from your own blood cells, there is virtually no risk for an allergic reaction or other adverse effects.
