Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for Hair Regrowth
Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a
genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs,
are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical
hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems.
Now there is an affordable way for you to improve your hair density without surgery or
harmful side effects. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a simple
injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.
PRP for Hair Regrowth
• Increases blood supply to the follicle
• Increases shaft size (thickness)
• Triggers and maintains the growth phase
• Controls hair growth cycle
• Decreases hair loss
How PRP Works
Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers
that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has lead different
fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and
regrow healthier, stronger tissue. Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair
thickening and regrowth. With PRP for Hair, your growth factors and stem cells work
together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant
hair back into the growth stage.
PRP for Hair Loss
This quick injection involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own
platelets using a very easy three-step process.
