What is Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair Therapy?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Hair therapy is a non-surgical option for men and women who face hair loss conditions and are looking to stimulate hair growth. Simply explained, PRP is a hair loss therapy that uses your own blood to generate hair growth: since plasma acts as a protein reserve, helping to balance electrolytes and stimulate hair follicle growth.
Dealing with hair loss becomes a major issue as we age. While there have been many hair loss treatment methods (such as hair transplants), the PRP method is a scientifically-advanced method that has been proven to bring success to many Midtown Med Spa patients.
How Does the PRP Hair Therapy Work?
PRP Hair therapy taps into the regeneration powers of mesenchymal stem cells found in human blood. Blood is drawn (similar to a routine blood test) and is spun in a centrifuge, where the PRP is separated from the rest of your blood. The highly concentrated PRP is injected into your scalp and topically applied, starting its work to stimulate the growth of hair follicles. PRP hair loss treatments once every six months is known to progressively help give rise to new hair.
