PRP

PRP is a proven therapy that uses the patient’s blood platelets to act below the skin with the body’s natural ability to grow hair. The platelets contain proteins and growth factors that increase circulation to the hair follicles and stimulate their growth.

Platelet Rich Plasma, often termed as PRP, is concentrated blood plasma that contains five to 10 times the number of platelets found in normal circulating blood. PRP contains white and red blood cells and it contains cells known as platelets. Platelets play a significant role in the human body. They are the reason your body has the ability to heal itself at the site of a wound. Platelets contain growth factors that promote regeneration of the cells in the body and also assist in clotting the blood, which is essential for the body to heal wounds.

PRP Hair Restoration:

 

The idea behind PRP therapy is that by increasing the platelet count in a wounded area, the body’s healing capacity in that area would be accelerated thus also accelerating the growth and characteristics of hair follicles such as thickening and creating density. If the hair follicle and its root are healthy then the growth will be healthy as well. Hair follicles survive through the nutrients they receive from their supply of blood so by introducing platelets to the blood via the administration of PRP, it amplifies the body’s scalps ability to produce healthier follicles. PRP thickens hair follicles thus improving hair density, reverses hair thinning, accelerates healing when used during hair restoration surgery, may be a positive alternative for non-surgical hair restoration treatment. 

 

When alopecia hair loss occurs, some mistakenly see it as a sign of aging or loss of vitality. However, hair characteristics can be influenced by environmental factors such as sun exposure, as well as body metabolism,  hormones, and iron and thyroid levels.

PRP Facial Rejuvenation

This minimally invasive procedure helps initiate the cell therapy processes by utilizing the growth factors within platelets, revolutionizing the reversal of skin aging and damage. As blood flow slows with age, we can see examples of scars on the face and body, sun-damaged skin around the eyes, translucency on the back of the hands and loose skin and wrinkles around the mouth. PRP helps to repair these cells and has been used for over the past decade. The popularity of PRP used to regenerate skin tissue cosmetically has exploded.
