How Does PRP Hair Therapy Work?
During this incredible treatment, we’ll take blood from your arm and process this to separate the red blood cells from the plasma containing the platelets. Once this is done, we’ll then re-inject this plasma into your scalp in the areas where you’re experiencing thinning or hair loss.
This produces excellent results by refreshing the follicles, encouraging positive hair growth.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a treatment that doctors use to accelerate healing in various areas of the body. It may help restore hair growth. Doctors typically use this treatment when hair loss results from androgenetic alopecia, a common condition that causes hair follicles to shrink. In males, this is called male pattern baldness.
When will you see PRP for hair loss results? Research on the results of PRP injections in both men and women has been generally positive, although most of the studies have been small. For a 2016 study published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery , researchers tested PRP in 25 people with hair loss.
