PRP for Hair loss & Anti-ageing
The Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) commonly used in hair restoration is “autologous,” meaning that it is derived from the patient’s own blood. To obtain PRP, a patient’s blood drawn and then is spun in a centrifuge to separate the solid from liquid components. The yellow liquid portion which is the plasma (PRP) is separated from the “solid” portion which is the red blood cells.
Platelets are tiny cells that are critical to healing and are the body’s primary source of natural bioactive growth factors for wound healing and tissue regeneration. Platelets contain many powerful proteins, cytokines and growth factors such as:• Connective Tissue Growth Factor (CTGF)• Platelet Derived Growth Factor (PGDF)• Transforming Growth Factor-beta (TGF-β)• Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)• Insulin Growth Factor (IGF)• Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)
The treatment is done in a 45 minute session. A total of 3 treatments are required 4 weeks apart. Additional treatments are given at 6 months and then at a year.
