PRP Hair Restoration

PRP Hair Restoration

PRP  hair restoration is an exciting non-surgical therapeutic option for patients who require stimulation of hair growth for hair loss conditions.

Recent scientific research and technology provides the medical community with new understandings of wound and tissue healing. As a result of these scientific studies, we recognize PRP is an all-natural autologous medical procedure performed in physicians offices for scalp, skin, and hair stimulation.

 

How is the procedure done?

Blood is drawn in our office as though you are having routine blood testing . The blood is spun in a centrifuge and the PRP is separated and removed from the rest of the blood.

The PRP is taken from your body and is specially prepared by spinning down the blood cells to a high concentration. We use the Halycon PRP System. It is a closed sterile system and the platelets are concentrated to 5-6 times the normal blood values.  An anesthesia block is given to nerves of the scalp so the patient does not feel any pain. The highly concentrated High Density platelet rich plasma (HD-PRP) is then injected into the scalp.

PRP contains many growth factors that stimulate the hair follicle’s growth. The best results occur after 4 treatments performed one month apart.  This does not treat the underlying reason for the initial hair loss so our patients find regular or semiannual PRP treatments help stimulate hair growth for the long term.

PRP specific cells that stimulate hair growth include:

  • Platelet-Derived Growth Factor (PDGF)—promotes blood vessel growth, cell replication, skin formation
  • Transforming Growth-Factor-Beta (TGF-b)—promotes growth of matrix between cells, bone metabolism
  • Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF)—promotes blood vessel formation
  • Epidermal Growth Factor (EGF)—promotes cell growth and differentiation, blood vessel formation, collagen formation
  • Fibroblast Growth Factor-2 (FGF-2)—promotes growth of specialized cells and blood vessel formation
  • Insulin Like Growth Factor – (IGF)—a regulator of normal physiology in nearly every type of cell in the body
