PRP is injected directly into the scalp, near the hair follicles. The growth factors in PRP help stimulate the activity of the hair follicle which promotes new hair growth.
About Platelet Rich Plasma
Platelet-rich plasma is a complex composition of cellular components that, when prepared properly, can be used to heal and repair a host of injuries and conditions. Platelet rich plasma is a biologic, and the cornerstone of the consortium of regenerative therapies used in modern medicine. It is chosen over surgery for many conditions, ranging from degenerative joint disease, to tendon and ligament tears. When it is prepared correctly, it can make a difference in your recovery.
How Does PRP Work For Hair Restoration And Regeneration?
PRP can be used to stimulate and nourish follicles for hair growth. Highly concentrated plasma(portion of your blood without the red and white blood cells) contains platelets that release growth factors. These growth factors have been shown to generate new hair and improve the density and health of existing hair. PRP administration into the scalp is done via Micropen treatment and via subdermal injections. For our Dallas and Southlake hair restoration treatments, we combine your PRP with additional medications specific to your hair restoration needs.
Post surgical PRP treatment is recommended for hair transplant recipients to further promote healing and inspire growth. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition received from the blood supply. If we introduce platelets by administering platelet rich plasma (PRP) in the area of damaged hair follicles, the process amplifies the body’s naturally occurring wound healing mechanism.
