Platelet rich plasma is a natural therapy that uses the healing and regenerative properties of platelets to induce tissue repair and new tissue regeneration of the area surrounding the hair bulb. It promotes blood supply to the hair bulb and follicles resulting in stronger hairs and new growth. A small sample of your blood is taken and centrifuged to concentrate the platelets and this is then injected through a thin needle into the skin of the scalp. As the product is prepared from your own blood, there is no risk of allergic reactions or infections.
PRP consists of platelets, which are a type of blood cell that slow bleeding helps to heal, and plasma, which is the liquid part of the blood. Platelet-rich plasma is blood with a higher concentration of platelets than normal. Platelets help to form blood clots which help with healing, and they are also capable of causing cell reproduction, stimulating tissue regeneration in a targeted area.
To carry out the therapy, your own blood is drawn, likely from your arm.That blood is then placed into a centrifuge to spin down into three layers: plasma rich in platelets, platelet-poor plasma, and red blood cells. The PRP will be used, and the rest will be tossed.
That PRP or “blood injection” is then injected into your scalp with a syringe after a local anesthetic has been applied.
Simply put, platelets are the band aid of our body. As soon as you get cut or have wound the first thing that reaches the site are the platelets. Their job is to promote healing and stop the bleeding. When injected in the scalp, the rick concentrated doses of platelets repair the damaged follicles and speed up the healing.
