PRP (Platelet-Rich Plasma) for Hair Restoration
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a non-surgical therapy that uses your own blood cells to stimulate hair growth. Typically, if you are experiencing hair loss, your hair follicles are not getting an adequate blood supply.
PRP contains special cells called Platelets which have specific growth factors that can initiate growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the micro-environment of the hair follicle. All concentrated platelets contain growth and protein elements which help boost blood circulation to the hair follicles, stimulate the hair follicles to develop, and thicken the hair base. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
