What is PRP Therapy?
PRP (platelet-rich plasma) uses the growth factors in plasma to stimulate hair follicles, which in turn leads to an increase in hair growth. It can be a non-surgical option for men and women who are suffering from hair loss and thinning. It’s a very safe treatment that uses your own blood platelets which can help stimulate hair regrowth.
PRP Therapy Process
PRP therapy is a three-step process. Most PRP therapy requires three treatments 4–6 weeks apart.
Your blood is drawn — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).
After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers
The platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
