How PRP for Hair Restoration Works

PRP contains growth factors, which work as signal callers and give instructions to your tissues to regenerate cells. Growth factors and stems cells are stimulated by PRP to reverse hair loss and initiate the dormant (sleeping) hair into the active (growth) phase.

Basically, the process starts with numbing the area to be treated for 45 minutes. Then your blood is extracted in a special collection tube, which is then placed in a specialized centrifuge. After some time the platelets are concentrated and can be drawn up into a syringe. Using a small needle, the platelets are injected into the scalp and in to the areas that need improvement.

Patients start seeing results in 4–8 weeks and results can be dramatic.
