What is PRP?
Although blood is mostly comprised of a liquid called plasma, there are also smaller, solid components such as red cells, white cells and platelets. While platelets are mainly responsible for clotting blood, they also contain several growth factors that play a vital role in healing injured or damaged skin and tissues.
PRP and Hair Re-Growth
In the same way that PRP restores color, shape and smoothness to the face, it can also effectively treat premature hair loss. Rather than being applied to the skin topically after the PRP is created, it is injected into treated areas on the scalp with minimal discomfort. The patient’s hair is washed, and the PRP begins hair re-growth of new follicles and stimulate ones that are in the inactive phase. Treatments can be repeated over the course of a few months to achieve desired results.
Are There Any Risks?
As PRP utilizes your body’s own resources, there is no major risk involved. When administered as an injection, slight bruising or swelling can occur at the site, which is temporary.
