What is PRP Hair Growth Treatment?
PRP is an all-natural, non-invasive therapy that stimulates hair follicles to regrow your own hair while reducing thinning hair in both men and women without surgery or harmful side effects. The process is simple and takes less than 30 minutes per treatment.
Blood platelets contain 7 healing growth factors. These growth factors act as sentinels that give instructions to your tissue to regenerate and multiply. PRP hair loss therapy mainly targets the Dermal Papilla, a component of the hair follicle to activate the follicle and regrow hair. The process is virtually pain free & requires no downtime.
- A special collection tube is used to draw your blood which is then placed in a centrifuge
- After 10 minutes of centrifugation, the platelets are concentrated and drawn up in to a syringe
- Using a small needle, the platelets are then injected strategically into your scalp targeted at the areas that need improvement.
- The platelets, rich in plasma then stimulate the hair follicle to regrow thick, natural hair
Baldness is typically a genetic medical problem that will persist over time, so PRP is not necessarily a cure. Evidence exists that after completion of the initial therapy along with regular treatments have been proven to maintain and stimulate hair growth with long term effects.
Dr Sypien will determine the number of treatments based on a thorough evaluation of your condition. The typical treatment process involves 4-5 treatments for a few months to kick-start the hair growing process for which results can initially be seen in as little as 30 days. To maintain and thicken hair growth, Dr. Sypien recommends additional treatments 2-4 times per year. Call Dr. Sypien for your free evaluation.
