Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is blood plasma with extremely concentrated blood cells known as platelets. Growth factors in PRP have been studied to facilitate wound healing. Recently, studies have suggested that aside from hair transplantation surgery, PRP may also serve as a safe and effective non-surgical treatment option for male and female pattern hair loss.We can use this PRP, which naturally exists in your blood, to treat thinning hair. The result is added diameter of your existing hairs, an increase in the amount of hair in each follicle and prevention of further hair loss.
The process, on the surface, is simple. We take your own blood, spin it in a centrifuge to isolate the PRP, then reintroduce the PRP back into the area where the hair is thinning. That’s it, no outside medications or other substances.
The PRP process achieves five to nine times times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. Following the activation process, the PRP secretes 10 different platelet-derived growth factors (PDGF), epidermal growth factors, connective tissue growth factors, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), transforming growth factor (TGF), keratinocyte growth factors and fibroblast growth factors most notably. These growth factors allow the bioactive proteins to open up and regulate cellular and follicular healing. Not only does reverse hair miniaturization result but quality hair rejuvenation is also possible.
