PRP for Hair Restoration
To increase hair density, the growth factors and platelets from your plasma are injected into your scalp. These cells cause the hair follicles to grow by stimulating the stem cells and other cells in the microenvironment of the hair follicle. Every strand of hair has a life expectancy of 4-5 years. As we age, some of our follicles shut down and stop producing new hair growth. Approximately 25% of men begin showing signs of hair loss as early as age 30 and by 60 years old, 2/3 of men will have substantial baldness. Women also experience early thinning due to chemical or mechanical damage. The primary purpose of using PRP in hair restoration is to stimulate inactive hair follicles into an active growth phase. With as little as two or three treatments, patients have appreciated very noticeable results, and continue maintenance twice a year.
