Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is derived from a small sample of your own blood. PRP is used because it contains a variety of growth factors and other beneficial proteins.
On the day of your treatment, a small sample of blood will be drawn and then spun in a centrifuge for roughly 15 minutes. Centrifugation causes the various components of blood – including platelets – to separate by density. Your clinician will then extract the PRP in order to harness its powerful skin-healing effects.
The PRP is applied to the scalp and delivers the vital growth factors directly to the hair follicles. Platelet-rich plasma therapy uses the best rich plasma your blood has to offer because it heals injuries faster, encourages growth factors, and also increases levels of collagen and stem cells—these are naturally produced in the body to keep you looking young and fresh. In this case, those growth factors are used to help regrow thinning hair.
