How Does PRP for Hair Loss Work?
During hair restoration using PRP, your own platelet-rich plasma is injected into your scalp using a very thin needle. Platelet-rich plasma contains a high concentration of growth factors that stimulate natural hair growth.
This treatment is safe and effective for both men and women. It is a non-surgical, state-of-the-art, all natural solution for hair loss and thinning hair. Since the injection contains only your own cells, the risk of side effects and complications is limited.
Does It Hurt?
Most patients only experience discomfort during PRP hair loss therapy. Topical anesthetic is available to make treatment more comfortable. In rare cases, general anesthetic may be recommended to ensure that you do not feel the procedure.
What Are the Risks?
Because the enriched plasma is produced from you own blood, there is no risk of an allergic reaction. The injection contains a concentration of white blood cells which act as the body’s natural defense system against infections. This makes infections associated with the procedure extremely rare.
