PRP contains special cells called “platelets”, that can cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special platelet cells promote healing by accelerating the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to induce inactive or newly implanted hair follicles to get into an active growth phase .
Intracellular platelet structures -- lysosomes and alpha granules, contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during the healing and repair processes.
PRP is a potential emerging, non-surgical based therapy for natural hair follicle stimulation for thinning hair.
PRP is also being used in conjunction with some hair transplantation procedures.
- Simple, non-surgical procedure.
- Safe and reliable results.
- Very quick recovery period.
- Beautiful and above all extremely natural-looking end-results.
How long does PRP treatment take?
The actual procedure normally takes between 60 and 90 minutes, depending upon the areas being treated.
PRP treatment can be repeated until the desired result has been achieved. Our experience shows that regular PRP treatment every 3 to 6 months can be very beneficial.
