BOSTON HAIR NON-SURGICAL HAIR RESTORATION
PRP, or Platelet-Rich Plasma, is a medical procedure that is sometimes used for hair growth or hair restoration. It involves extracting a small amount of blood from the patient and separating the platelet-rich plasma from the rest of the blood components. Platelets are blood cells that play a crucial role in the body's healing process and contain various growth factors.
The extracted platelet-rich plasma is then injected into the scalp in areas where hair growth is desired. The growth factors present in the plasma are believed to stimulate and promote hair follicle growth, as well as improve the overall health and thickness of the existing hair.
The procedure typically involves the following steps:
1= Blood extraction: A small amount of blood, usually around 30-60 milliliters, is drawn from the patient's arm similar to a routine blood test.
2= Centrifugation: The collected blood is placed in a centrifuge machine, which spins the blood at high speed. This process separates the platelet-rich plasma from the other components of the blood.
3= Preparation: The platelet-rich plasma is carefully collected and prepared for injection. Sometimes, the plasma may be activated using calcium chloride or other activating agents to enhance its effectiveness.
4= Injection: The prepared platelet-rich plasma is injected into the targeted areas of the scalp using fine needles. The injections are typically administered at varying depths across the treatment area.
The growth factors released by the platelets are believed to stimulate dormant hair follicles, promote cell growth, improve blood circulation, and nourish the hair follicles, leading to enhanced hair growth and quality.
It is important to note that the effectiveness of PRP for hair growth may vary from person to person, and multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve the desired results. Additionally, PRP for hair growth is often used in combination with other hair restoration treatments, such as medications or hair transplant procedures, for more comprehensive results.
