PRP Hair Restoration
What is PRP?
PRP stands for ‘platelet rich plasma’. PRP comes from blood and contains growth factors and healing signals that stimulate recovery and regeneration of tissue.
How PRP for Hair Restoration Works
PRP injected into the scalp helps stimulate hair growth. It can also help increase hair follicle thickness. The PRP can help decrease hair loss and stimulate more oxygen and nutrients to be delivered to the hair follicle which help strengthen the roots and increase growth signals.
Hair Restoration Procedure
Blood will be drawn from your arm and processed in a centrifuge to separate off the PRP
The scalp will be numbed with a topical numbing spray
The scalp will then be injected with a small dose of PRP throughout
These injections are repeated throughout the entirety of the upper scalp
The scalp is then lightly massaged with the remaining plasma
Can PRP for Hair Restoration Be Combined With Other Therapies?
Absolutely. Dr. Rodriguez always takes a comprehensive approach to health so understanding what may be causing the hair loss will be discussed prior to treatment. Investigating potential nutrient deficiencies and hormone imbalances are essential for giving hair the best chance of regrowth.
Not A One-And-Done Magical Trick
PRP for hair restoration is a procedure that stimulates natural hair growth. Although every person is different, a series of 3-4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart is recommended to achieve optimal results. The hair needs consistent up-regulated signaling to support increased growth.
