What is PRP hair restoration?
PRP stands for platelet-rich plasma. This is an element in human blood that can be extracted and injected into the patient’s own body. By injecting PRP into the scalp, the body will naturally jumpstart the production of hair in the treatment area. Platelet-rich plasma for hair restoration has become one of the most popular treatments available in our practice.
How is PRP extracted?
Platelet-rich plasma is naturally occurring in blood. To extract PRP from the patient’s body, a blood draw is performed. The blood extracted during this visit is then placed in a centrifuge, a device that spins the blood and extracts different elements from within. The PRP can be removed from the blood, purified, and reinjected into the patient’s body where hair regrowth is needed. This treatment is completely safe, and eliminates the chance of any allergic reaction as the patient’s own blood is used to achieve results.
Who is a candidate for PRP hair restoration?
Most adult patients who are experiencing thinning or loss of hair on the scalp and are of good overall health are considered viable candidates for PRP hair restoration. Dr. Orna Fisher encourages patients to schedule their first consultation with her to undergo a thorough evaluation to determine if PRP is appropriate.
