HOW DOES THIS TREATMENT WORK?
Platelets, a type of cell found in our blood, contain different types of growth factors and PRP is the concentration of those platelets in plasma, the liquid portion of blood. The effects of PRP on hair loss are thought to be due to effects of the platelet growth factors on the hair follicles. PRP is obtained by drawing a small blood sample & then spinning the tubes to concentrate the platelets.
Rather than just inject the PRP into the scalp with a syringe, our estheticians also use microneedling, an almost painless technique, to apply the PRP. Microneedling produces thousands of tiny punctures in the scalp with a specific depth, through which the PRP can travel down to the hair follicles. There’s no downtime or special aftercare instructions.
PRP scalp treatments are usually initially done in a series of 3 monthly sessions, with touch-ups recommended yearly or more often if desired.
