Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP (platelet rich plasma) is a treatment derived from a person’s own whole blood. It promotes hair growth, tissue regeneration, and improved wound healing. Though it is still being studied, PRP is thought to work by delivering concentrated growth factors directly to cells1.

How Does It Work?

PRP delivers concentrated growth factors directly to cells.

Blood is drawn from the patient on the day of the PRP session. The patient’s drawn blood then goes through a spinning process that separates the platelets from the blood in order to transfer them to a syringe in a sterile fashion. This syringe now contains PRP (platelet rich plasma).

PRP for hair loss: After administration of local anesthesia, the PRP is injected into the affected areas of the scalp. Current data supports the use of 3 monthly PRP sessions followed by 3- to 6- month maintenance injections for best results1.

PRP for skin rejuvenation: A patient’s blood is drawn prior to the laser or micro-needling treatment and then applied topically to the skin after the initial treatment.3

Will It Work For Me?

The best candidates for treatment have male or female pattern (androgenetic) hair loss.

Patients who want a better cosmetic outcome following laser resurfacing or microneedling procedures are the best candidates for the use of PRP as rejuvenation.

Are There Any Side Effects?

There is some pain with injection of local anesthesia. Some patients experience bruising or swelling, but are closely monitored by the performing physician should it occur.
