PLATELET RICH PLASMA (PRP) FOR HAIR RESTORATION
What is PRP Therapy?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. PRP is rich in growth factors, so when PRP is applied to the scalp it can contribute to hair growth.
How is PRP made?
Platelets for PRP are made from the patient's own blood. It is similar to a patient donating his or her blood before a surgical procedure.
How is PRP used for hair restoration?
PRP, when injected into thinning scalps, stimulates hair growth by activating hair follicle stem cells, triggering the body's natural healing instincts and initiating hair production.
PRP for hair restoration is best for patients whose hair is starting to thin. Patients who have active infection on the scalp, diabetes, and are on blood thinning medications are not good candidates for PRP.
