PRP Hair Loss Therapy
What Is PRP?
The Platelet-Rich-Plasma, or PRP, is plasma that has been separated out from a harvested sample of your own blood. This plasma contains a large number of platelets, proteins and factors that stimulate the growth of hair and the healing of tissue in the body. This treatment is often regarded as an effective therapy for not only triggering natural hair growth but also maintaining it by enhancing the supply of blood to the hair follicle.
Since PRP is a substance that has been drawn from the patient’s body, it is not harmful at all to the body. Instead, it is highly compatible and does not result in any adverse reactions or rejection symptoms.
How Does PRP Treatment Work?
The blood of the patient is first drawn in the same way that a blood sample would be drawn. It is spun around in a centrifuge and separated into its many components until only a very purified form is left behind. This purified form is a thick plasma substance called: PRP.
The PRP is then carefully and slowly injected into the scalp of the patient so that the existing hair follicles and cells can absorb the proteins and growth factors of the PRP.
PRP therapy has been in use in a number of other fields, such as dermatology, dentistry, and orthopedics. It has been employed successfully in the treatment of skin disorders and helps in the rejuvenation and repair of facial skin. It has treated many patients successfully.
