What is platelet-rich plasma?
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is plasma rich in growth factors and platelet concentrate. Growth factors are key players in wound healing and regenerative processes. PRP can accelerate vascularization, trigger cell proliferation, and stimulate tissue regeneration.
What does the procedure entail?
Photos will be taken prior to your procedure for your medical record. Based on your preference, you will have the option to use a topical numbing cream or apply ice prior to the injections. Your blood will be drawn and spun in a centrifuge. Once the PRP has been separated from your blood, it will be injected into the areas of concern. There will be multiple injections spaced about 1-3cm apart.
How do you know if you are a candidate for hair restoration?
If you notice thinning hair, it is best to contact your primary care physician to evaluate if there is an underlying cause. After further evaluation, you can contact our office for a free consultation where we will assess the extent of the hair loss. PRP hair restoration is best for patients who have hair loss but still have hair growth. It will not benefit areas where there is no hair growth at all.
