Many Cosmetic Treatment Patients Had Never Heard of PRP
Many cosmetic treatment patients had never heard of PRP, (platelet rich plasma) before a few famous celebrities publicized their “vampire facials”. This beauty treatment uses a small amount of the patient’s own blood to isolate the platelet rich plasma and then inject it back into the skin. When the buzz started a few years ago, the concept seemed edgy and novel for a facial treatment. What many didn’t realize is this well-researched medical treatment has been effectively used in sports medicine and pain management for many years in mainstream medicine. Now, New Jersey PRP Hair treatments are taking the hair restoration industry by storm. Read on to find out why this could be the non-surgical super treatment your hair needs.
What Is New Jersey PRP Hair Treatment?
PRP gets its name from an element that all human blood has, called plasma. The yellow-clear fluid remaining after spinning a small sample of blood in a centrifuge, is loaded with platelets and growth factors that help heal and boost cell health wherever they are placed. That serum filled with growth factors is believed to increase follicle health and encourage robust hair growth when injected into the scalp. Some practitioners also use microneedling- a hand held device that punctures very tiny, shallow openings in the skin- then they apply the PRP mixture on top.
This treatment can be injected, applied with microneedling or both. In either case, it is non-surgical and only minimally invasive, so recovery time is fast and easy.
