For a long time scientist have been doing a lot of research on Platelet-rich plasma (PRP)which is blood plasma that has been enriched with platelets. As a concentrated source of autologous platelets, PRP contains many different growth factors and other cytokines that have the power to stimulate healing of soft tissue. PRP is already being used extensively in sports medicine to help athletes and now it is being used in the field of hair fall and hair regeneration treatment with great results. It has been discovered that the plasma also works in stimulating hair growth because it has the characteristics to reinvigorate dormant follicles.
PRP is very effective for women who lose hair.
PRP therapy is a proactive therapeutic option for both male and female patients who are experiencing serious hair loss. PRP is a non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who where follicles are stimulated for hair growth. At Enhance clinics we recognize PRP is an all-natural autologous medical procedure performed in the physician’s office and is not time-consuming.
HOW DO YOU PERFORM THE PROCEDURE?
Blood is drawn as though you are having routine blood testing the blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood. Before the procedure, an anesthesia block is given to nerves of the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. Then the highly concentrated platelet rich plasma (PRP) is then injected into the scalp. After that patient’s hair is washed and the patient may leave without any assistance. No sedation or any medication is given during the procedure that can have any kind of impact on the cognizance.
