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, response 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.
Collect Blood :
30-60ml of blood is drawn from the patient’s arm.
Separate the Platelets :
The blood is then placed in a centrifuge. The centrifuge spins and seperates the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
Extract Platelet-rich Plasma :
Extract 3-6ml of platelet-rich plasma.
Blood is drawn in our clinic as though you are having routine blood testing at your primary care physician’s clinic. The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.
The system eliminates granulocytes which hurts tissue regeneration and wound healing. An anesthesia block is given to nerves of the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. The highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. The patient’s may drive home without any assistance. No sedation or any medication is given during the procedure to inhibit the ability to drive or use machinery.
PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. PRP can be used operatively with hair transplant as well.
