What is PRP?
This stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is obtained by using a specialized centrifuge that isolates concentrated platelets from a person’s whole blood. PRP contains many nutrients and growth factors used in tissue repair and regeneration within the body. The growth factors secreted by platelets repair injured tissues by increasing the production of collagen, stem cells and proteins.
PRP therapy has been used widely as a medical treatment modality in oral surgery, neurosurgery, plastic and cosmetic surgery, sports medicine, orthopedics and gynecology. It has been used extensively in these specialties for over twenty years with positive outcomes.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP Hair) Restoration
At Luminous Health & Wellness we offer platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy as a proactive curative alternative for patients experiencing hair loss by stimulating the growth of hair follicles.
Recent medical and scientific research has provided the medical community with new understandings of tissue healing. Therefore, we recognize PRP is an all-natural medical procedure used to treat wound healing, skin rejuvenation and hair restoration. PRP promotes cell healing, increases the rate of tissue regeneration and formation of new cells. The goal of using PRP in hair restoration is to incite inactive hair follicles into anagen phase (active growth phase).
What Can I Expect from a PRP for Hair Restoration Procedure?
Blood is drawn routinely, then the blood sample is placed in a specialized centrifuge that separates PRP from the other components of whole blood. This specialized centrifuge concentrates the platelets three times the normal blood values. Then, topical medication is applied to the scalp. The highly concentrated PRP is injected into the scalp through a thin needle. PRP contains multiple growth factors that promote hair restoration by stimulating hair follicles. Treatments are typically performed every three to four months. There is little to no down time with a PRP for hair restoration procedure.
