1. WHAT IS PLATELET RICH PLASMA?

Male and female pattern hair loss is a genetic problem that leaves many people feeling frustrated and helpless. Prescription drugs and topical treatments are often expensive and only partially effective while surgical hair restoration can be expensive and does not treat the underlying medical problems. Now, there is an affordable way to regain your hair density without surgery or harmful side effects. PRP involves a simple injection of your platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp.

Platelets contain healing growth factors that stimulate your tissue to regenerate and multiply. With PRP for Hair, your growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the miniaturization of the hair follicle and jumpstart dormant hair back into the growth stage.

3. PROCESS

STEP 1

A special collection tube is used to draw blood — typically from your arm — and put into a centrifuge (a machine that spins rapidly to separate fluids of different densities).

STEP 2

After about 10 minutes in the centrifuge, your blood will have separated into in three layers:

Platelet-poor plasma

Platelet-rich plasma

Red blood cells

STEP 3

Using a small needle, the platelet-rich plasma is drawn up into a syringe and then injected strategically into areas of the scalp that need increased hair growth.
