Platelet Rich Therapy
Simply put, we take a small tube of your blood, put it into a centrifuge to separate the plasma from the rest of the blood cells then put the plasma back into the thinning areas of your scalp to promote more and better hair growth. Your scalp will be pre treated with a topical numbing cream prior to treatment for ultimate comfort. The average patient will see a 20% increase in hair growth.
What Is Platelet-rich Plasma (PRP)?
Although blood is mainly a liquid (called plasma), it also contains small solid components (red cells, white cells, and platelets.) The platelets are best known for their importance in clotting blood. However, platelets also contain hundreds of proteins called growth factors which are very important in the healing of injuries.
PRP is plasma with many more platelets than what is typically found in blood. The concentration of platelets — and, thereby, the concentration of growth factors — can be 5 to 10 times greater (or richer) than usual.
