PRP (platelet-rich plasma) stimulates hair growth through vascularization and angiogenesis – two processes that increase blood supply to the hair follicle which encourages natural hair growth! If you suffer from hair loss or thinning, PRP can be injected into the scalp to grow thicker, fuller hair. PRP is obtained through an in office blood draw which is then placed in a centrifuge for ten minutes. While it’s in there, the tube is rapidly spun to separate the plasma from red blood cells. The separated plasma contains the platelet-rich plasma, which is then injected into the scalp to stimulate natural hair growth in the treated areas.
What is platelet-rich plasma?
Plasma is a component of our own blood that is rich in platelets that contain numerous growth factors. These growth factors contribute to hair regeneration by inducing and prolonging the anagen phase of the hair growth cycle. The growth factors are also acting on stem cells within the hair follicles to stimulate the development of new hair follicles through a process called neovascularization.
What can I expect during the procedure?
When you come in for the procedure, our skilled practitioner will apply numbing cream to the treatment areas. A small amount blood will be drawn, in the same way that routine blood samples are taken in a lab. We will then prepare the PRP by centrifuging your blood sample. The centrifuge machine has a rapidly rotating container that uses centrifugal force to separate the growth factors.
Your provider will then add the PRP to a syringe and inject it into your scalp with a very thin needle. Injections are made in order to deliver the highly-concentrated platelet-rich plasma into the skin at the depth of the hair follicles. You may experience some discomfort during the injection process – the entire approximately an hour to complete and you will be able to drive yourself home afterward and resume your regular routine. Most people are able to resume their normal activities immediately.
AM I A CANDIDATE & WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM THE RESULTS?
Patients who are experiencing hair loss with intact hair follicles are good candidates for PRP. These people may have excessive shedding, but they aren’t completely bald.
The sooner a person comes in to address their hair loss, the better their results will be. Ultimately, it all depends on the severity of hair loss and treatment combination. Patients usually see improvements in hair thickness, texture and growth within 3-6 weeks after treatment, however it can take up to six months to see a serious transformation.
We recommend 3 treatments, spaced 6 weeks apart, then 2 treatments spaced 3 months apart for a total of 5 total treatments. For best results you will need maintenance treatments every 1-2 years to maintain the results of your hair restoration treatment.
No procedure can change your genetic predisposition for hair loss, so subsequent sessions are strongly encouraged.
Prescriptions for targeted topical creams and scalp-stimulating medications will be provided at your visit.
