10 Mar How Does PRP Therapy Improve Hair?
By taking a small amount of your blood, then concentrating and separating the blood components, we produce Platelet Rich Plasma, PRP. Four percent of our blood is made of platelets and on the surface of the platelets are as many as 1100 growth factors. PRP contains massive amounts of growth factors capable of regenerating human cells.
The growth factors work innumerous ways to improve and regenerate hair by providing nutrition and promoting new blood supply to the follicle increasing hair shaft size. Additionally, studies show the growth factors in PRP reduce inflammation in the scalp and turn on follicular stem cells. This is important because we know that male and female pattern hair loss is both a hormonal and stem cells problem.
