What Is PRP Therapy for Hair Loss?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) is the isolated serum derived from a patient’s own blood which contains regenerative healing and growth factors. PRP is used in regenerative medicine applications in oral surgery, orthopedic surgery and cosmetic surgery.
It has been adapted since its initial applications to other surgical fields, including the field of Hair Restoration. PRP therapy can be used as a stand-alone treatment or in conjunction with Hair Restoration Surgery.
PRP use can be especially helpful in advanced cases of Female Pattern Hair Loss. This treatment is also an investigational treatment for certain Cicatricial (“scarring”) Alopecias.
How PRP Works
First, the patient’s blood is collected. The blood must be processed in order to separate the different components of the blood so the platelet-rich plasma can be extracted. To accomplish this, the blood is placed in a centrifuge that spins rapidly and separates the different components. The PRP is then placed into syringes so that it can be precisely injected into the desired areas of the scalp where there is hair loss.
After treatment, you will be able to resume most normal activities right away. There is no extensive recovery period after PRP therapy for hair loss. For optimal results, be sure to follow all of the aftercare instructions we provide.
