HOW DOES PRP WORK?
Human blood contains mesenchymal stem cells and autologous blood products that contain essential and specific growth factors that assist in tissue regeneration and healing. It has been used extensively in these specialties for the last two decades with generally positive outcomes and success. In the field of hair restoration, existing evidence demonstrates

PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.

PRP is not meant to replace current FDA approved therapies such as DHT blockers and Minoxidil. but it is a promising non-surgical therapeutic option for those patients with hair loss.

The Procedure

Firstly, blood is drawn in our clinic as though you are having a routine blood testing at your primary clinic.
The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)
is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.

The PRP is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration.
After centrifugation, the platelets and other vital growth proteins raise to the top of the tube.

The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP)+ Biotin is then injected into the scalp topically.

The PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth.
PRP can be used preoperatively, intra-operatively, or post-operative.

While individual results vary, preliminary studies indicate many patients respond to PRP therapy. Some hair restoration Doctors apply PRP to the scalp for those patients who are not surgical
candidates once a month for 3 months then after a 6-month period.

Other protocols will use PRP before or during surgery to insure graft survivability and accelerated healing.
PRP is an emerging non-surgical based therapy for natural stimulation for thinning hair.
