PRP Hair Treatment
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, a stem cell treatment used by the medical community to speed healing in many areas of the body. This treatment is also used on the scalp to restore hair growth.
But what exactly is PRP?
PRP is the platelet-rich plasma of the blood and contains a variety of growth factors and proteins that can accelerate tissue repair and cell growth. Platelets are a component of red and white blood cells .
How is PRP extracted and processed?
A blood sample is taken and then processed in a centrifuge machine which spins the blood at high speed to allow the components of the blood to separate. The platelets are then extracted and injected into the desired area.
Is it effective?
PRP can indeed help slow hair loss and thinning hair. It will make your hair thicker and denser, but it cannot regrow hair follicles in balding areas. If the follicle has already died, it cannot help regrow a new follicle.
