PRP is an acronym for platelet-rich plasma. PRP hair restoration is one of the ways to treat hair loss. Although PRP has not enough research to prove whether it is an efficient way to treat or not, many medical communities and experts believe that it is an effective way to treat hair loss. In this article, you will find brief information about PRP hair restoration.
Although there are hair transplantation techniques such as FUE hair transplant, DHI hair transplant, and FUT hair transplant to treat hair loss, people are doing research to find easier ways to treat hair loss. So, PRP is one of them and is a useful technique to treat hair loss.
Step By Step PRP Hair Restoration
PRP therapy or hair restoration techniques are done in three steps. In the first step, a surgeon drew your blood, usually from your arm, and put it in a centrifuge to separate fluids of different densities in your blood.
The centrifuge rotates very fast and separates cells and liquids of different densities. In the second step of PRP treatment, 10 minutes wait after your blood is put in the centrifuge. Thus, your blood is divided into three layers as follows.
- red blood cells
- platelet-poor plasma
- platelet-rich plasma
In the last step, platelet-rich plasma from these three layers above is drawn into a syringe and then injected into your scalp.
All in all, PRP hair restoration uses your own blood to stimulate natural hair growth. For this reason, we don’t expect different side effects from common injection treatments. If you want to learn more about PRP hair restoration, you can contact us by filling out the form above.
