Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is in widespread use for wound healing and soft tissue healing. What you may not know is that its’ concentrated growth factors, cytokines and stem cells can be used to restore hair and prevent hair loss.
To perform the treatment, your own blood is placed into a specialized machine and processed to separate the Platelets into a thin layer of the plasma. This portion is rich in Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF), Transforming Growth Factor-Beta (TGF-β), Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF), Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF), Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2), and Insulin Like Growth Factor (IGF).
By administering the PRP into your scalp, we’re placing this heavy-duty fertilizer precisely where it’s needed. And because it’s your own cells and plasma, there’s no chance of reaction or disease transmission. While PRP’s use in hair loss is too new for us to know for sure what the optimum number of treatments is, much evidence points to 3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.
