Platelet Rich Plasma is a revolutionary treatment used to regenerate hair growth. The treatment involves injecting the scalp with human growth factors, compounds in the body that signal cells to heal and grow. PRP is blood that has been concentrated with platelets. These concentrated platelets contain proteins and growth factors which help increase circulation, stimulate the hair follicles to grow, and even thicken the hair shaft. It is believed that the introduction of platelets and white blood cells through platelet rich plasma can actually stimulate the growth follicles, thereby reversing hair miniaturization seen in androgenic alopecia and even preventing hair loss.

What is Platelet-rich plasma? (PRP) is a therapy that uses your own cells to quickly heal and recover. It has been used by physicians for more than 20 years. The growth factors in PRP have shown to help improve skin tone, reduce acne scarring, and even thicken and regrow hair. PRP is a small portion of the blood that is composed of a high concentration of platelets, which have the ability to the body heal itself.
PRP hair restoration is a safe choice for many patients with hair loss. However, there are some exceptions: history of shingles on the scalp, diabetes, coagulation disease, on blood thinning and/or immunosuppressive medications, are not candidates if the hair follicles are entirely lost, the treatment will not work. Patients who have lost their hair follicles require transplant surgery.
