Benefits of PRP Hair Restoration
Platelet Rich Plasmatherapy (PRP) offers the opportunity for hair growth for those patients wanting a more aggressive nonsurgical approach to treatment. Platelets in your blood have growth factors that are essential for helping to rejuvenate your hair follicles. By drawing your blood, centrifuging it to separate the platelets, and then re-injecting them into your scalp, hair growth can be stimulated without an invasive procedure.
The PRP method is effective, and has been shown to work in other areas of the body as well. Results may vary per patient however, so it is important to speak with your PRP professional about your specific needs.
PRP therapy for hair loss is a three-step medical treatment in which a person’s blood is drawn, processed, and then injected into the scalp.
