Hair plays an integral role in the perception of oneself and is often associated with youthful vitality and confidence. Hair loss affects millions of men and women and can be a devastating experience that decreases self-confidence and feelings of personal attractiveness. While there are many methods for hair restoration, some are quite invasive and involve surgery. Others involve the use of medications that have a significant number of unwanted side effects. Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients with hair loss conditions.
Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy uses the platelets from your own blood to stimulate hair growth and renewal. This revolutionary, non-surgical treatment has been used for years to heal sports injuries and to stimulate volume replacement in the face. However, PRP can also combat hair loss when injected into the scalp. Growth factors found in PRP can stimulate growth of the hair follicles by activating the stem cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle.
