Hair Restoration Treatments
PRP is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions. Human blood contains stem cells, which contain specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
How does PRP Hair Restoration Work?
Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician’s office. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. The highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. There is very little discomfort and no downtime. There is good medical evidence to support the use of PRP for hair growth in men and women.
