- A small amount of blood (less than 50 ml) is obtained from the patient
- Platelet-Rich Plasma is isolated following the centrifugation of blood
- PRP is activated with DNA activators (thrombin) and enriched with calcium ions (e.g. calcium chloride)
- Activated PRP is injected into the area which is suffering from hair loss in order to stimulate hair growth.
PRP can be used as an individual treatment, in order to fortify the hair follicle, thus ensuring its longevity and potency, but also to reinvigorate dormant hair follicles and stimulate the growth of new hair.
Moreover, PRP can be coupled with any hair transplant procedure, helping partially transected follicles in the donor area; regenerating bristles and also helping the recipient areaâ€™s implanted hair follicles prosper. Additionally, it will reduce the formation of scabs, trauma, inflammation and erythema (redness); and help the donor areas dermis and epidermis heal faster.
