For our hair treatment we can use PRP or Platelet-Rich Plasma, which is a procedure used to promote hair growth and improve the thickness and quality of hair. PRP is derived from the patient’s own blood and contains a concentrated amount of platelets, growth factors, and other beneficial proteins .

The growth factors present in PRP are believed to stimulate cell proliferation, angiogenesis (the formation of new blood vessels), and collagen production, which can promote hair regrowth and improve the health and thickness of existing hair.

For those who chose against the procedure we do have other options.

Hair Growth Services Q&A

PRP injections are done in three steps:

  1. To carry out the therapy, your own blood is drawn, likely from your arm.
  2. That blood is then placed into a centrifuge to spin down into three layers: plasma rich in platelets, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells. The PRP will be used, and the rest will be tossed.
  3. That PRP or “blood injection” is then injected into your scalp with a syringe after a local anesthetic has been applied.

PRP injections can benefit a wider range of people than you may have initially thought. These plasma injections are platelet rich and can potentially help the following groups:

  • Both men and women. Male balding and hair thinning is talked about extensively, but women do not often get the same benefit of widespread information. The fact is that women can lose hair, too, due to several different factors.
  • Those suffering from androgenic alopecia or other forms of alopecia. This is also known as male/female pattern baldness. It is a hereditary condition that affects around 80 million people in the United States alone.
  • A sizeable age range of people. Many successful clinical trials have been tested with people ranging from 18 to 72 years of age.
  • Those suffering from hair loss due to high stress levels. Since this condition is not chronic, it can be treated rather easily.
  • Those who have recently experienced hair loss. The more recent the hair loss occurred, the better your chances are of fixing it before it is too late for PRP injections.
  • Those with thinning or balding hair, but not completely bald people. PRP injections are meant to thicken, strengthen, and grow hair from follicles that are still functioning, however weakly this may seem.
