PRP for Hair Restoration
PLASMA RICH PLATELETS (PRP) for HAIR RESTORATION
- Clients suffering from shortening or thinning of hair and pattern baldness can be treated.
- The goal of PRP therapy is to rejuvenate the follicles that are already in place.
- PRP therapy can be applied to trigger or stimulate activity in these weakened follicles to cause them to return to their active growth phase.
- Clients can experience reversal of the effects of thinning or receding hair and gradually achieve fuller and thicker hair. (Disclaimer: Results may vary)
- clients can experience visible improvements in hair growth, hair thickness will be apparent in about 2 to 6 months. PRP injectable treatment sessions should be scheduled every 3 to 9 moths in order to maintain optimal stimulation and growth of hair follicles. (Disclaimer: Results may vary)

The Science of PRP
PRP contains special cells called Platelets, that can theoretically cause growth of the hair follicles by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. These special Platelet cells promote healing, accelerates the rate and degree of tissue healing and regeneration, responds to injury, and formation of new cellular growth. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive or newly implanted hair follicles into an active growth phase.
Inside the Platelets are many intracellular structures such as glycogen, lysosomes and alpha granules. These granules within the PRP contain clotting and growth factors that are eventually released during the healing and repair process.
