What is PRP?
PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, is a natural component your blood. This material is full of growth factors and proteins that help to prompt the healing process in skin tissue. Aside from helping skin heal, PRP can help catalyze follicle function and bring about fuller hair growth.
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
If you qualify for PRP hair restoration, we will invite you to our clinic for treatment. A trained professional will extract a small blood sample. The sample will be inserted into a device known as a centrifuge, which spins at high speeds to isolate the PRP from the other hemal components. Once separated, it will be injected into various strategic areas in your scalp with low hair growth. There is no set downtime associated with PRP hair restoration, meaning you can resume your ordinary activities immediately following your treatment. Results may appear within weeks to months. Multiple sessions may be needed to reach and maintain the ultimate effect.
