About PRP for Hair Loss

Platelet Rich Plasma is made up of two basic elements: Plasma, which is the liquid portion of your blood and Platelets, which are small cells in the blood involved in clotting and healing.

In addition to their clotting abilities Platelets also contain growth factors, which can trigger cell reproduction and stimulate tissue regeneration or healing in the treated area.

To create Platelet Rich Plasma a qualified health practitioner will draw a sample of blood from the patient receiving the treatment and place it in a device called a centrifuge. The centrifuge rapidly spins the sample at a pre-determined speed, separating the other components from the platelets including red and white blood cells, and concentrating the platelets within the plasma portion.

After creating the Platelet Rich Plasma from a blood sample, the solution is put into syringes and injected into the scalp.

Once injected into the scalp, the PRP does its job to support tissue regeneration including hair growth.

For most people, three to four treatments, three to four weeks apart, are recommended. After assessment of your response, a maintenance program of one to three treatments annually would be prescribed.
