What Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy?
With the use of platelet rich plasma, we can both strengthen your hair and reactivate dormant follicles. The treatments lead to repair at a cellular level to help patients regain thicker, healthier hair and growth from follicles that had previously stopped producing hairs.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
PRP Hair Regrowth Therapy utilizes the natural growth factors and stem cells in your body by isolating the platelet rich portion of your blood. From there, it assists your body in wound healing and cell regeneration. This concentration of platelets and growth factors is up to ten times greater than normal through PRP treatment.
Because of the increased tissue renewal and other growth factors, PRP injections stimulate new hair growth by reactivating dormant follicles and healing the follicle at a cellular level, resulting in healthier, thicker hair.
How Long Has PRP Therapy Been Around?
Platelet Rich Plasma therapy has been around for over 20 years. It is used for its wound healing capabilities in various medical specialties including cardiovascular surgery, orthopedics, sports medicine, dermatology and other medical specialties. PRP was first utilized to treat hair loss in 2004, however it is not until recently that studies have shown its full potential in treating hair loss.
PRP is very safe and has limited side effects. In every study completed for the use of PRP as a treatment for hair loss there has never been any significant negative side effects found.
