While hair loss is usually associated with men, both men and women can experience thinning hair, a receding hairline or balding as they age. PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss is an innovative treatment that stimulates the hair follicles to stimulate new hair growth.
The PRP process involves harvesting platelet-rich plasma from your body. A small amount of blood is drawn and is spun in a centrifuge to separate the regenerative cells and growth factors. The result is a concentrated healing platelet-rich-plasma which is injected into the scalp to trigger natural hair growth. The growth factors within PRP promotes regrowth of cells, including skin formation, blood vessels, and collagen.
After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and draw up into a syringe.
