Would you like to stop the loss of hair? Well then PRP (platelet-rich plasma) therapy for hair loss may be what you're looking for. PRP therapy involves drawing blood, processing it, and injecting it into the scalp. Doctors believe PRP injections stimulate natural hair growth and preserve it by boosting blood flow to the hair follicle and thickening the hair shaft. This method is sometimes used with other hair loss treatments. Doctors employ platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to speed up healing in many parts of the body. PRP is known to encourage the growth of new hair.

Hair Restoration With PRP Q & A
What is PRP?
PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. These platelets are naturally present in your blood and are essential for healing. Platelets contain proteins called growth factors. When your body needs to heal or regenerate tissue, growth factors stimulate new cell growth, producing all the different types of tissues needed to restore health.
How Does Hair Restoration With PRP Work?
Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from the blood supply. When introducing platelets, administering PRP in the area of damaged hair follicles, strengthens the body's naturally occurring wound healing response. The prepared PRP concentrate is injected into the target area of the scalp, strengthening hair follicles, and stimulating hair growth.
The technician will treat your scalp with a microneedling technique. Your skin will be numb during this treatment. The procedure needs to be performed several times to be effective. The treatment can also increase blood supply to the individual’s hair follicles, increasing the thickness of your hair shaft. PRP treatments can help create new blood vessels in your scalp, in some cases, leading to full hair restoration.
Who is a candidate for Hair Restoration With PRP?
PRP is a great solution for both men and women. PRP injections can stimulate new hair growth in men who suffer from male pattern baldness, and women who suffer from female pattern baldness.
