Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) treatment is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions and to reverse hair loss.
PRP was established two decades ago as an effective medical treatment modality in the specialty fields of oral medicine, sports medicine, and orthopedics. In hair restoration, evidence supports PRP therapy as a promising treatment option to promote hair growth.
How Does Platelet Rich Plasma Treatment Work?
If the hair follicles or hair roots are healthy, the growth of the hair is healthy. Hair follicles survive on the nutrition they get from blood supply. PRP consist of your own blood plasma concentrated with 3-5 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. These concentrated platelets contain protein and growth factors which
- attract stem cells,
- help stimulate hair follicles growth,
- increase circulation to hair follicles, and
- decrease inflammation.
