What is PRP Hair Restoration?
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) for hair restoration is a simple, in-office procedure to stimulate hair growth. PRP involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp, has minimal downtime and achieves natural looking results. Schedule a complimentary consultation at SkinSpirit Palo Alto with one of our experts to see if PRP Hair Restoration is right for you.
How it Works:
PRP Hair Restoration increases blood supply to the follicle, increases the shaft size (thickness) of the hair follicle and triggers the growth phase. The quick, in-office procedure involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using an easy three-step process.
- A special collection tube is used to draw your blood and is placed into a centrifuge
- After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe
- Using a small needle, the platelets are injected into your scalp in the areas that need improvement
Treatments vary by client need. Initially, your provider may recommend a series of treatments spaced one month apart, then maintenance treatments thereafter. While this is not a cure for baldness, or Androgenic Alopecia, studies have shown regular treatments can significantly slow the effects of Androgenic Alopecia and work to increase hair density.
