PRP injections for hair loss are very popular at our practice, this vampire inspired treatment uses your very own Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to rejuvenate and re-invent your hair. PRP is an exciting non-surgical option for men and women who are suffering with hair loss, thinning hair, excess breakage or shedding. Plasma is the internal essence of your blood that contains life-giving proteins and growth factors essential to health cell function. PRP treatments increase the natural blood supply to the hair, helping to restore the flow of vital nutrients to the area(s) it is injected. Step one is drawing a vial of blood, the vial is then placed in a special centrifuge and spun to separate the components: red blood cells, plasma, and platelet-rich plasma. Platelets contain numerous growth factors to help stimulate collagen and regenerate tissue by restoring the blood supply to the hair follicles. When injected into the scalp, the rush of vitamins and growth factor rich plasma can activate dormant hair follicles generating new hair growth, and make existing hair fuller, and thicker.
The treatment entails one treatment per month, for a minimum of three months to achieve optimal results. Patients will typically maintain results with follow-up treatments every 6 to 12 months.
