What Is PRP Hair Treatment?
This non-surgical hair growth method is often combined with today’s advanced, hair transplant surgeries. The science behind it involves targeting the newly grafted hair follicles with a boost of cell growth and healing factors, so the delicate follicles grow strong and fast. The graft success rate using advanced FUE transplant methods is over 90% for most clients, and with the addition of PRP. Hair follicle growth can be more robust, with a greater number of transplanted grafts taking hold and thriving where they’re placed.
How Is the Treatment Done?
Our blood is comprised of platelets, white cells and red blood cells suspended in a yellow-ish clear plasma serum. PRP serum is created by removing red and most white cells from of the blood. This leaves behind the healing, regenerating growth factors in a potent liquid. A small amount of the patient’s own blood-30-60 ml- is drawn and separated into its components using a centrifuge, then added to syringes for application to the scalp. Topical numbing agents keep the patient completely comfortable as fine needles direct the serum to the hair roots. With no incisions and no down time, this treatment is effective but easy and trouble free. There is virtually no risk of allergic reaction because of the autologous nature of using one’s own blood. Treatments can be done 1-2 months apart for the first 3-4 sessions, then follow up sessions are recommended twice per year to maintain optimal results.
