How does it work?
Platelet Rich Plasma contains healing and anti-inflammatory growth factors that can theoretically cause the growth of your hair follicles by stimulating cells in the microenvironment of your follicles. These growth factors when released signal your cells to regenerate and multiply. Your own growth factors and stem cells will work together to help stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase.
How long do results last?
A series of 3-4 treatments may be needed at 4-6 week intervals, then 1 treatment every 6 months for maintenance
What is expected after treatment?
To begin your treatment, your blood is drawn in the same way routine blood testing is drawn. Your blood is then spun in a centrifuge to separate your red blood cells and your PRP. This highly concentrated platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into your scalp in a grid pattern with a small needle in the desired area.
