What is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy for Hair Loss is a powerful and natural hair loss treatment that does not require daily pills or chemical lotions or foams.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.
Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing.
Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is concentrated blood plasma, which contains approximately three to five times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. In addition, it contains platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF), vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF) and other bioactive proteins that aid in wound healing and hair growth.
PRP for Treating Hair Loss
PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into the scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.
PRP is then placed into a syringe and injected into the area of hair loss.
When used to stimulate hair growth, multiple treatment sessions are required. Some improvement (in reversing miniaturization) can be expected in the first 2-6 months. The treatments must be continued periodically to maintain any improvement.
Advantages of PRP Therapy against hair loss are:
- Simple, non surgical procedure
- Multiple Injections: procedure lasting approximately 60 minutes
- Safe and reliable results
- Very quick recovery period
- Beautiful and above all extremely natural looking end results
Mechanism of Action
For the medical treatment of hair loss, practitioners use PRP to stimulate the growth of follicles, thereby reversing the hair miniaturization seen in female pattern hair loss and in male pattern hair loss.
