What is PRP Hair Treatment?
PRP stands for Platelet-Rich Plasma and has been used for many years to help hair loss and skin rejuvenation. It is simply blood that contains more platelets than normal (as much as eight times). Using PRP in treatments enhances the body’s ability to repair, improves healing and speeds up downtime.
PRP treatment for the hair mainly involves three steps:
- The patient’s blood is drawn
- It is processed in a centrifuge machine to separate the plasma
- The plasma is then injected into the scalp
Typical human blood consists of plasma that contains growth factors which are required in the healing process and cell growth. When platelet-rich plasma blood is injected into damaged tissues, such as in the skin, it triggers the body to grow new healthy cells in that area, increasing blood flow plus stimulates of elastin, collagen and excite the hair follicle.
There are so many amazing benefits to PRP for hair loss and health. Whether you suffer with hair loss or wish to maintain the health of your hair, PRP is an excellent treatment.
