PRP ( Platelet-Rich Plasma ) is derived from an individual’s own blood. Plasma contains high concentration of platelets, stem cells and growth factors. PRP has been used for decades in sport medicine, reconstructive surgery and orthopedic medicine to help speed recovery. In more recent years, PRP is used for hair restoration therapy, as the growth factors in the PRP will naturally stimulate hair growth.

What is
PRP?

PRP Hair Therapy
Best Candidates

The best candidates for PRP hair restoration are patients with areas of thinning hair or weak hair growth on the scalp, but still functioning hair follicles. People who have lost all hair cannot use this treatment, as it cannot help grow new hair on a bald area; rather, it can only make the existing thin hair thicker by strengthening the hair follicles.

How is PRP Hair Restoration Performed?

First, our nurse will draw a small tube from the patient's arm. The blood tube is then put into a centrifuge, which spins the tube for 10 minutes to separate the PRP from the red blood cells. Once the PRP is retrieved, our nurse will then injects the PRP directly into the scalp. Small injections of PRP are injected over the treatment area approximately 2cm apart.

PRP Recovery

Some brief mild redness and numbness of the scalp may be present for several hours. Most patients can return to work immediately after. Patients may shampoo their hair normally and resume normal daily and athletic activities just 12 hours after the treatment. No harsh chemical coloring or perming treatments should be performed for at least 72 hours.

What are
PRP risks?

There is no risk of an allergic reaction with PRP therapy because the enriched plasma is derived from the patient’s own blood. The PRP has a concentrated amount of white blood cells, which are the body’s natural defenders against infections.
