PRP stands for platelet rich plasma which is derived from a patient’s own blood.

Once the blood is processed and separated, only enriched cells, or PRP remains. Since platelets are what help tissue heal and regenerate, it is now being utilized to help in numerous cosmetic applications

The PRP is injected into the scalp to help stimulate natural hair growth. Unlike other hair growth drugs, there is minimal risk.  Because PRP injections involve the use of your body’s own platelets it virtually eliminates the risk of allergic reactions. There is minimal discomfort or downtime unlike receiving hair plugs or other costly hair treatments.

Results can usually be seen within the first two to eight months which is attributed to the growth cycle of the hair follicle itself. Treatments may need to be repeated and for best results combination therapy with red light therapy, hormone optimization and topical hair growth medications is recommended.
