What is PRP?

PRP is platelet rich plasma, and it has many uses. Platelets have a high concentration of the proteins and markers that stimulate repair of the cells. PRP therapy works for hair loss because the platelets stimulate the hair follicles and stimulate new growth. This treatment is most effective when the hair follicles are still functioning, even if on a low level. It can also be somewhat effective for more advanced cases of hair loss.

How Does PRP Work?

When you come to our office for PRP for hair loss, we will draw blood from you in the same way that you would have blood drawn for typical lab work. The blood is then placed in a centrifuge to speed it up to separate and concentrate the platelets. The platelets are then suspended in the plasma from your blood, and applied to the hair follicles to stimulate new hair growth and slow down the effects of hair loss.

Is It Safe?

PRP therapy is completely safe. There are no side effects from PRP therapy, because it uses your own natural bodily fluids and components. This completely safe procedure is used in a number of applications, even in promoting healing after surgeries or injuries. Using PRP therapy for hair loss is just as safe and effective.
