What is PRP?
PRP stands for platelet rich plasma. We obtain the PRP from a blood draw. The blood is spun down and the layer on top is the PRP that is rich in platelets. Platelets contain growth factors that can rejuvenate skin, hair and improve the appearance of scars.
During this procedure PRP is injected in the scalp. The growth factors increase blood flow, decrease inflammation and can revitalize the hair follicle. PRP is only effective if the follicle is still alive. PRP is best in areas of thinning, not complete balding.
