PRP Treatment for Hair Loss is a nonsurgical procedure for treating thinning hair. The procedure is used both in men and women. After a complete history and physical exam that includes examination of the scalp and may also include lab tests, if the patient is a candidate for PRP treatment the treatment is commenced.
The procedure involves the use of ones own blood which is drawn via veinous puncture. Once the blood is collected it is centrifuged to separate the platelets from the rest of the blood components.
The Platelets that are derived are highly concentrated, usually 4-6 X baseline and once activated with calcium chloride are injected into the scalp where they release growth factors that repair and rejuvenate damaged tissue.
The procedure is noninvasive, virtually no pain, safe, minimal downtime and very effective.
Suggested treatment protocol is 4 treatments a month apart, once results are achieved in approximately 6 months , the patient will need yearly maintenance treatment.
