PRP or Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy is a treatment that can be applied to the skin that encourages cell renewal. In recent years it has shown great results for those experiencing hair loss and thinning as they get older.
What is PRP Scalp Therapy?
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. PRP is blood plasma that has been enhanced with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP holds several different growth factors and other components that stimulate the healing process as well as hair growth. Your very own blood contains essential and specific growth factors that support tissue regeneration and healing.
How Does it Work?
To start, the patient’s own blood is taken and processed so that it is concentrated with platelets. It is then injected into the scalp or used topically. PRP contains essential proteins that stimulate natural hair growth. Once the treatment is finished, your scalp will be cleansed and you can go about your day. Dr. Deane will develop a custom treatment plan based on your hair growth needs. You may need a series of treatments that will be scheduled a few weeks apart for best results.
The Benefits of PRP Therapy
- PRP is safe and natural because it uses the patient’s own unmodified cells.
- PRP is a simple and quick procedure that involves little to no downtime.
- PRP Therapy is a great option for patients that are not candidates for surgical hair restoration treatments or patients that would prefer to avoid chemicals.
