Hair loss can be an embarrassing issue, which greatly impacts the way you look and feel about yourself as a whole.

How PRP for Hair Restoration Works
Platelet-Rich Protein (PRP) for Hair Restoration involves a simple injection of your own platelets into the vascular layer of your scalp. In doing this, PRP for hair regrowth:
- Increases blood supply to the follicle, stimulating growth
- Increases thickness
- Triggers the growth phase of each follicle
- Decreases hair loss
The PRP Hair Restoration Process
This quick procedure involves the collection and concentration of your body’s own platelets using a very easy three-step process:
Step 1: Using a special collection tube, your blood is drawn and placed into a centrifuge.
Step 2: After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up into a syringe. These platelets contain healing growth factors that signal to your tissues to regenerate and multiply. Additionally, these growth factors and stem cells work together to reverse the hair follicle from shrinking in size while also jump-starting dormant hair follicles back into the growth phase.
Step 3: Once your platelets are extracted, using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp in areas that need improvement.
