What is PRP for Hair Restoration?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) - Imagine regenerating your body with your own chemistry and cells.
PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is an advanced treatment which physicians have used to help repair damaged or injured tissues in your body. This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate your system’s regenerative process by utilizing the growth factors that platelets are known to contain.
PRP hair treatment therapy is autologous, meaning it is derived from the patient, therefore carries no risk of rejection or allergic reaction. The result of the treatment is the natural stimulation of growth factors moving towards the treated area. There are no known side effects of PRP, although you may occasionally experience minor swelling or pain near the injection sites for a short period of time following your hair restoration.
As a stand-alone treatment, PRP has been shown to help people with male and female pattern hair loss and alopecia areata to:
- Increase the density and strength of hair
- Promote growth of new hair
- Increase the thickness of finer hairs to thicker, healthier hair
- Decelerate hair loss
Reinvigorate Dormant Hair Follicles
Clinical studies concluded that enhanced hair growth of transplanted hair was observed after use of PRP, which led to further research on the effect of PRP on non-transplanted hair follicles. The study hypothesized that platelet growth factors can “wake up” dormant hair follicles and begin the production of new hair.
A study examined the effect of PRP injections alone without hair transplant surgery. The PRP was administered into the scalp without hair transplant forcing the induction factors at the injection site. Number of hair and individual hair thickness was measured after the treatment. Enhanced hair growth and increased hair diameter were noted over the next 4 months.
Promote New Hair Growth
PRP can be used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. Highly concentrated blood plasma contains platelets that release growth factors. These growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of existing hair.
How Does PRP Hair Restoration and Regeneration work?
PRP can be used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. Highly concentrated plasma (portion of your blood without the red and white blood cells) contains platelets that release growth factors. These growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of existing hair. PRP administration into the scalp is done via subdermal injections.
Post-surgical PRP hair treatment is recommended for hair transplant recipients to further promote healing and inspire growth. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition received from the blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, the process amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism.
