PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma)

PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) for Hair Loss

Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue. Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that can leave you feeling helpless. Options, like prescription drugs, are often partially effective and carry the potential for unwanted side effects. Surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems.

There is an affordable way for you to regain your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.

How PRP Works

Platelets contain healing growth factors. Those growth factors are like signal callers that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. This has led different fields of medicine to utilize PRP for wound healing to speed up recovery time and regrow healthier, stronger tissue.

Now doctors have discovered new benefits for hair thickening and regrowth.

With PRP for Hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstarting dormant hair back into the growth state.
