Platlet Rich Plasma (PRP)
PRP Los Angeles - Beverly Hills. Medical hair loss solutions.
Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is the component of the blood that aids in
healing and stimulating growth. PRP is isolated by drawing a patient's
blood, then spinning it down in a centrifuge to process it properly and
isolate it from the red and white blood cells. The PRP is then injected
into the scalp and/or spread topically over the area of hair restoration
immediately after a hair restoration procedure. PRP has been shown to
thicken up thin, miniaturized hairs, as well as speed up recovery and
growth of transplanted hairs. PRP not only helps with the healing process,
but the platelets in the PRP release vital growth factors which act as
strong fertilizer for growth of regular as well as transplanted hairs.
PRP is a quick procedure and relatively painless. Patients can drive themselves
to home and it typically takes about 30 minutes per treatment. PRP does
not substitute hair restoration and it is best when combined with ARTAS
robotic hair restoration. It can thicken up thin hairs, as well as speed
up growth of transplanted hairs and reduce the risk of shock loss (the
temporary loss of hair after a hair restoration procedure).
