Platelet Rich Plasma is an injection treatment whereby a person’s own blood is used. When PRP is injected into the target area it triggers a healing cascade. As the platelets organize they release a number of enzymes and proteins to attract stem cells and promote healing and new tissue growth. Benefits include:
This treatment is natural in that your own cells are used, treated with a chemical that is not foreign to the body, and injected into the scalp. Since a distillate of growth factors from your own blood (PRP) is used, there should be no side effects from the material injected. The body reacts to the treated cells as it does to a wound and immediately starts repairing the tissue. There’s actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of uni-potent stem cells, so the change is not from something foreign in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing. The PRP stimulates blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization).
The results of this treatment:
Improved hair growth/coarser hair can be seen as early as 2 months but is typically evident between 4-8 months and may continue to improve up to a year after treatment. New hair is not expected to areas that have no current hair (bald areas).
