You’ve probably heard of Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) – a revolutionary new treatment that can be used to alleviate everything from bad knees to facial wrinkles. But did you know that it can also be used to treat hair loss?
Platelets are the cells in the blood that are used to start clotting and promote healing. PRP is made by taking a sample of some of the patient’s blood and spinning it in a centrifuge to separate it into the component parts. Once the PRP is made, it’s injected into the treatment area to promote healing.
In the case of hair loss, PRP will be injected into your scalp. The growth factors in the PRP promotes new hair growth while slowing the rate of hair loss in treated areas.
Before and After Photos
Traditionally, PRP for hair loss comes with about 24-48 hours of downtime after the injections. Redness and bruising in the area are both quite common. One to three treatment sessions are usually recommended for optimal results, and we spread out each one by 2-3 months.
