PRP for Hair Loss

PRP therapy for hair loss is a treatment that involves withdrawing a patient’s own blood, processing it so that only the enriched cells (platelet-rich plasma) remain, and injecting it into scalp. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth.

During this procedure, platelet rich plasma (PRP) is collected from the patient, and injected into the scalp. 
The application of PRP causes miniaturized hair follicles to become healthier and larger, producing more robust hair growth.  PRP activates follicular progenitor cells (adult stem cells) and PRP is loaded with growth factors that promote rapid angiogenesis and localized cell growth. Effective for both male and female
pattern hair loss, PRP has also regrown hair in alopecia areata, eyebrow hypotrichosis and other patient cases with non-hereditary hair loss.
