WHAT IS PRP?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a regenerative treatment produced from a person’s own blood. It is a treatment method that involves drawing a small amount of a patient’s blood, processing it in a centrifuge to concentrate the platelets, and then injecting the concentrated plasma back into the body. It contains a high concentration of platelets, which play a crucial role stimulating follicular and perifollicular angiogenesis or hair growth.For this reason, PRP injections are administered using a sterile syringe to areas that have experienced significant hair loss.

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) contains a high concentration of platelets which increase and improve stimulating hair growth in the growth stage of hair known as angiogenesis. Because hair has three different hair growth cycles, it is important to have a series of PRP treatments for best results depending on the severity of hair loss. The activation of the concentrated platelets in platelet-rich plasma causes growth factors to release stimulating and increasing the number of reparative cells your body produces.

PRP procedure requires the patients blood to be drawn and placed in a centrifuge to spin in order for the platelet’s to seperate – the procedure requires two centrifuge steps in order to prepare the solution for injection. The first centrifugation is use to separate red blood cells (RBC) and is followed by a second centrifugation to concentrate platelets to prepare for final injection. The area is then preped, cleaned and disinfected for injections. Your doctor or nurse will then inject into the hair line and scalp covering the full area with PRP injections.
